"When in the course of human events..." So begins one of the most important documents in the history of the United States of America. The "Declaration of Independence" was fashioned in 1776 for the express purpose of being just what it was called...a declaration of the intention of the colonies founded by England to be independent of the Motherland. It ignited a war whose final outcome and result…

Deep Cleaning

The cleaning at our church is done on a volunteer basis and divided into three sectors. As I was looking at the sign-up sheet last week I noticed that the sector which includes the basement youth room is always the last to fill up. This is actually the sector I always choose because it brings back good memories for me of working with the kids and it is more picking up than actual cleaning.


Develop a Mature Biblical Framework of Knowledge

Of all the shortcomings of the church in America, this one gives me the greatest concern. A lack of prayer does not make us completely vulnerable to destruction or assimilation. A lack of knowledge does. Of course, if we desire true revival, all of the elements must be at work. It is no mystery in the New Testament that there will be many false teachers who will infiltrate the circles of the…

Developing Discernment

In a day and age where false teaching abounds more and more, discernment is something that God's people need more than ever. Now this idea of things going from bad to worse in terms of the propagation of lies and half-truths is not mere rhetoric but Scripture. and impostors abound. They deceive the masses because they look like the real deal, but, of course, they are fakes. Even they themselves…

Did you not know?

And He said to them, Why did you look for me? Did you not know that I must be busy in the affairs of My Father?   3. Dark is the stain that we cannot hide. What can avail to wash it away? Look! There is flowing a crimson tide, brighter than snow you may be today. (Refrain)   4. Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace, freely…

Different Worlds

I have several good friends whom I don't see often, one whom I have never even met in person. Three live in other states, one another country. Some I have know since my first day of school, one I met in college and one I met just recently through online classes.

Sometimes it seems we live in completely different worlds as I listen to the details of their lives: world travel; teaching…


It's crazy how content and at peace I have become about certain aspects of my life. It feels kind of weird. I'm happy with my job and where I am in my career even though it is not by far my dream job. I still have aspirations that I have not met but I have not really felt anxious about them. I have also felt very fulfilled in my personal life- cared for by my friends. This calm has provided a perfect…


The last year we lived in Bellville, Ohio I had the privilege to write a sports column under the nom de plume of Da Wiffer. It gave me the opportunity to look into some sports matters a bit more deeply and ask questions that most sports aficionados don't ask. The year was 1991. One column that I wrote stood out that year because it made the natives angry.

The Cincinnati Reds were the reigning…

Discovering our promised refuge

…in hectic daily living.

What does your average week day morning sound like? Is it filled with soft, shuffling breezes carrying the scent of frying bacon and brewed coffee? Does the gentle sound of children's giggles waft to you as the dulcet warmth of a hot shower cascades down your back?

Neither was mine twenty years ago. Kids gathering homework, phone ringing, breakfast…

Discovering refuge in the Lord

Our destination is assured because the Lord is the Fountain of Living Water. to the Lord after God rescued him from Saul's clutches:

2 The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my Rock, in whom I take refuge. My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold

child, but also because He paid a very dear and precious bride price…
