Yes, today is All Hallow's Eve, as tomorrow is All Saints Day, but let's not talk about what that's turned into. October 31st is also -- and more importantly -- Reformation Day. On this day in 1517, a German monk named Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses to the door of the...

I've written of it before, but the great time poem of Ecclesiastes 3 continues to be so relevant it bears quoting here in its entirety:

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,

a time to plant...

For something fun today, I was given permission to slightly modify and post a quiz a former youth leader of mine made my youth group take. Read each statement below, and answer yes or no: is it in the Bible?

  1. Don’t go to bed mad.

  2. A cheerful heart is good medicin...

It was a running joke in seminary for my friends to guess which professor would offer to take me out to lunch next. Being the academic overachiever I was (usually at the expense of everything else in life), at least once per term a teacher would want to chat with me. A...

I won't be blogging on Friday. I won't be here. Not in the "He is not here; he is risen" kind of way, but the "eight months later, he decided to take a day off" sort of way. Yes, my brothers and sisters, I finally told myself to take a couple of vacation days. As a not...

All of us who attended a vacation Bible school program remember reciting a series of three pledges, one each to the American flag, the Christian flag, and the Bible. The pledge of allegiance to the Christian flag mentions is stands for "one brotherhood uniting all Chri...

I have a love/hate relationship with breakfast: I love it, and it hates me. There are a few health problems which prevent me from being able to tolerate food soon after waking, so since I prefer to taste my food only once, I typically give breakfast a miss (or at least...

It's kind of a running joke in Christian school circles especially that every time you dance (or at least when you dance with someone other than your spouse), you're supposed to leave room for Jesus. Some say "room for the Holy Spirit," but it's the same principle: don...
