When we hear the word "prophecy," most of us immediately think of one of two things: the Book of Revelation or psychics. On that score, one is from God and one is not, but both seek to tell us about future events, more or less. That's the most common take on the defini...

At some point in life, all of us have had the rather humbling experience of having to ask for help. It could've been with something relatively minor like your third grade math homework, or it could have been for something pretty major like asking to move back in with y...

According to one report, the favorite, most-requested song in karaoke joints across Japan is Frank Sinatra's "My Way." One line of Japan's favorite sing-along-song is "Regrets, I've had a few, / but then again, too few to mention." That may be true for the crooner in q...

Maybe it's just me, but I think all human beings have an innate tendency to want to complicate things. We have this strange need to have as many complexities, as many moving parts, as possible. It's to the point we're suspicious of anything truly simple; if you don't b...

Today is Inauguration Day, and President Obama will be replaced by President Trump as the chief executive of our country. No matter your feelings on Pres. Trump, today I would ask you to do two things.

On Wednesday at Bible study, I shared with the class how I've never had cable or satellite service. I admit I had an antenna in Kansas, but it stayed tuned to the 24/7 local weather station (because those exist in Tornado Alley, and they're very much appreciated). I ju...

Whenever you prepare for something, you suit up -- you put on the appropriate gear. It could be football pads, chain mail, a hard hat, a flight suit, an Easter bonnet, or an evening gown, but you dress for the occasion. As Christians, we need to do the same thing, and...

By now, you know we're beginning 2017 with a new sermon "un-series" I'm calling "Unscripted." This isn't a typical sermon series. I'm not doing any long-range planning, and there's no central unifying theme connecting the sermons from week to week. Instead, each week w...
