Whether Alan or Merle sang it, we've all heard "If We Make It through December." Just the title alone resonates with many of us. December can be a hard month, the year ending with a mad dash to pay bills, see family, afford presents, and a host of other things. Most of...

The first bits of the Bible I ever translated were 2 Samuel 11-13. Great introduction to Hebrew translation, let me tell you. (I mean, it begins with adultery and ends in rape.) Chapter 11 has earned a special nickname from me: "David's List of Mistakes."

I have never failed to get my Christmas shopping done by Thanksgiving. (One year I finished by Halloween, but that was too soon.) It's not that I particularly hate shopping or that I go through stores and buy my family random things, though. Part of it is having a fami...

I thought since I started this yesterday, I may as well finish it today. As I said, I have a pet peeve concerning the upcoming holiday. Please do not refer to it as "Turkey Day" ever again.

If you didn't stay awake last night to watch the results roll in, and in case you've deliberately avoided the news this morning, let me break it to you that you have a new President-Elect of the United States. Regardless of whether you voted for Mr. Trump or not, you a...

Children's ministry programs are one of the great church innovations of the twentieth century. Sunday School classes have existed for far longer, but the complete children's church experience -- removing children from adult worship entirely and placing them in a worshi...

Thirteen years ago today, I accepted Christ as my Savior and was baptized in the more-than-slightly-chilly waters of Laurel River Lake. I never expected to be sitting behind the senior minister's desk just over a decade later, I have to admit, but those years have been...
