We Need a Fresh Appreciation of the Gospel’s Magnificence

Child watching the JESUS FilmI have seen firsthand people watching the JESUS Film for the first time, in their own languages, viewing Jesus with awe and wonder and affection, then crying out in agony when He is tortured and crucified, and weeping uncontrollably at the gospel story. Why do most of us no longer respond that way? 

The Things Dogs Teach Us About Life

Golden Retriever PuppyThose of you who follow my blog or Facebook know that Nanci and I love dogs. She and I like to talk about our resurrection (post-bucket) lists, consisting of all the things we look forward to doing after we die, and in particular, after the resurrection. Nanci’s post-bucket list includes her dream to spend a lot of time with dogs.

Whom Are You Serving?

Summer grass / Joni on True ServiceI appreciate these thoughts from our friend Joni Eareckson Tada on Christ being the motivation for our earthly service.

Our mission remains the same as the day it was given to us—Go, and make disciples. 

Loss: Finding Hope that Lasts when Life Falls Apart

CCEF Conference 2014: LossTake 90 seconds to watch this video. Though it speaks about a conference concerning Loss, a conference God might want you to attend, it spoke to my heart, and I hope it does to you.

Sermons by Our Sons-in-Law

Stump and Franklin familiesI love to see young men preaching God’s truth in their local churches. One day recently Nanci and I viewed video messages by both our sons-in-law, Dan Franklin and Dan Stump.

Of an Unnamed Nigerian Woman

Voice of the Martyrs Monument: A Nigerian WomanDisplayed on the Martyrs Monument (at The Voice of The Martyrs USA ministry office in Bartlesville, Oklahoma) are the names of many martyrs—each one representing a real person with a real story. During a recent visit I found myself once again drawn to the monument. On this particular day there was one memorial stone that stood out to me. It simply read A Nigerian Woman. 

A Letter to Those Struggling with Eating Disorders

HandsI was deeply touched by this wonderful article from Emily T. Wierenga.

Children Learn from Our Example… For Better or For Worse

Father and son on the beach | photo credit: Thomas Hawk via photopin cc (rounded corners added)This 60 second video is very powerful, though I’m well aware parts of it could be offensive to some.
