He simply wanted some clarity about his heritage. The young man was adopted as an infant by a couple that provided a wonderful home for him. They were very supportive of their son’s efforts to connect with his birth mother and biological father. They knew clarity would provide the young man greater comfort and confidence in who he was.

One would think that such an inquisitive nature ...read on

I pray you enjoyed a wonderful CHRISTmas and new year with family. Were your holiday gatherings and mealtimes peaceful? When friends and relatives gather, lively discussion can get stirred up as folks express their thoughts around certain topics. Was there pressure to limit conversation to football and the kids?

There is so much to talk through with all that is going on ...read on

“Peace to you” is easy to say but how is it to be lived? “Peace” has been defined as “freedom from disturbance; tranquility,” at least per Webster’s dictionary. I think of the advertising for noise-cancelling headphones that sell the idea of being oblivious to the world around you, undisturbed and tranquil. Is that peace?

In this final week of Advent, the candle lit reflects ...read on

Joy is an emotion and men do not typically like to show emotions. How is a dad to celebrate great joy around Christmas? One example is King David’s celebration when the ark of God was brought to the City of David. In 2Samuel 6:14, it says, “Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the Lord with all his might.” King David was elated, and celebrated great joy in getting the ark of God in its rightful place.

Should not the birth of ...read on

“Are you smellin’ what I’m steppin’ in?” That was a question posed by a friend from Mississippi. What I came to understand is that he was asking if I really heard what he was saying. The extension of course is that whatever is said is reflected in how you are walking. Are your kids “smellin’ what you’re steppin’ in”? Are you walking in faith or in something else?

In this second week of Advent, the candle lit represents the ...read on

One of my favorite movies is Braveheart. In one powerful scene, William Wallace rides up on a horse to address his troops. The men are looking across the field at an English army that greatly outnumbers them. Some are overwhelmed and express a desire to go home versus facing certain death. Wallace says, “Aye, you can return to your homes and live but what kind of life will it be without freedom?” He proceeded to call out to the “Sons of Scotland!” He said, “You fight today as free men against an enemy that wants to take our freedom!” 

The Scots stood firm on the battlefront knowing ...read on

Other folks are struggling with emotional stress from the loss of loved ones to months of isolation. And political division on steroids has caused rifts in families and the public square.
