Remember the Academy-Award winning film, “Chariots of Fire”? It’s the true story of Olympic athlete and gold medalist Eric Liddell, known as the Flying Scotsman. Liddell had the eyes of the world on him when he refused to run his best event, the 100 meters, at the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris. He held the […]

What’s My Beef With Beth?

Before starting, I’d like to say I’ve never read a Beth Moore Bible study or any of her books. I also want to say that my purpose here isn’t to denigrate my sister in Christ, nor is it to berate her. I have one purpose and that is to speak truth in love (Eph. 4:15). […]

When I was a kid we watched horrible movies at church about the last days. Thief in the Night and A Distant Thunder are such wretched films. They are badly directed, badly filmed, badly acted, and I’m not so sure they are theologically sound. Daryl told me he knew kids who became Christians because of those movies. Really? […]

The Glory and the Grind

There’s an old adage, “War is long periods of boredom punctuated by moments of sheer terror.” I think about this saying whenever I’m reading or studying the life of Abraham. Abraham, an ordinary guy going about his ordinary life doing ordinary things when all of the sudden BOOM! God interrupts and Abraham’s course, his life, […]

This week our dysfunctional HOA board had four beautiful, healthy, 20-year-old Linden trees cut down. Their root systems were not a disturbance; they were not interfering with power lines. Without notifying the residents or even putting it up to a vote, the board made the decision to cut these amazing trees down. As it was […]

What does it mean for those of us who are Christians, as one author put it, to “live a truthful, meaningful, and responsible life” in a world filled with turmoil and uncertainty? Let me answer this in a roundabout way… Back in 2002, Daryl and I went to Scotland to meet with Christians who had […]

A Postcard from the Ledge

I love being in Lithuania. Especially on days like today when the sun is shining and there is fresh snow on the ground. A delicious 21 degrees Fahrenheit is for me a perfect temperature. But not all days are like this…some days it’s a struggle. Not because of Lithuania, but because of homesickness, missing family […]

In our apartment building here in Vilnius we are required to clean the common areas/entry areas of our building every third month. There’s a list on the door as you leave the building reminding all the tenants which month is their month to clean. Welcome to the cooperative neighborhood of a former Soviet State. September […]

Some things I’ll just never understand this side of heaven. A friend said to me recently, “I don’t want to go to hell over a mystery.” I know exactly what he was saying even though I believe once saved always saved. If I edited that statement and made it mine it’d go like this: “I […]

We just finished our eighth week in Klaipeda, Lithuania, and we love it more each day. Someone asked me what I miss most of our lives in the U.S. Things? No, not “things”. I don’t miss movies or TV or restaurants or shopping malls or having a car. I don’t miss our house or the […]
