Following God’s Lead

Scripture: Psalm 23:1-3The Lord is my Shepard; I shall not want.He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.He restores my soul.

Returning to the Path

In 1999 I was the senior pastor at a congregation that was doing major work on its building. Eighty percent of the construction was new stuff. The rest was on the old part, where it connected with the new. The construction manager and I spent a lot of time together. He was nearing retirement and told me that he had asked for our job. His reason, I learned, was that he was ...

We Are Not Alone

One of my favorite spots in Israel is the small village site of Capernaum on Lake Galilee. That's where Jesus began his ministry. He wowed them in the Synagogue with his teachin...

Our Identity in Christ

Scripture: Galatians 2:20 (CEB)I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. There is a delicate topic that has become of particular relevance in our contemporary world. There are even entire courses of academic study dedicated to it ...
