Thirty-six went like a blur, but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t eventful. I fell back in love with photography in a big way. I wrote an honest-to-God hymn. I helped the company I work for expand into Canada; that felt like an accomplishment. I got to share in the cel...

The parable of the Good Samaritan is much more subversive than most people realize. The lesson that often repeated from it is one of being a good a person and helping someone in need, even if it comes at great expense to yourself, an even if you don’t necessarily like...

Judas is misunderstood. We revile him as a traitor, a man of greed and connivance, handing over his beloved friend for a sum of money. And there is truth to this. But when I read about Judas, I also see a man so wracked with guilt as to take his own life--an unrepentan...

It could be that I haven’t noticed it as much in the past few years, but it certainly seems like more and more people are decorating for Christmas and playing Christmas music much earlier this year than in years past. It has been kind of interesting overhearing convers...

Today is Thursday. It isn’t the first day of the week, when we still wish it was the weekend and we have to get ourselves ready to work hard for a few days. It isn’t Wednesday, the midpoint of the week, when we wait to turn the corner and race to the finish line to the...

"Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."

Hebrews 4:16, ESV 

I’m not going to get into the sordid details of what we have been watching unfold over the past week. That has been done t...

Thirty-five has been quite a year for me. I visited Europe for the first time. I had to wake my parents up to get out of a burning house. I moved into a new place. Those last two events were unrelated.
