Googling God

Published in Uncategorized

Sometimes I really, really wish that I could put God’s name in my Google search slot and come up with some answers. You know the way you do when you can’t remember the name of a movie or you can’t remember which State some national monument is in. All you have to do is put […]

Some Monitors Are Human

The Chinese government had a funny way of doing things back in the early 1980s when I first started teaching there. The Communist Party had a strict policy to protect its citizens from the invasion of foreign ideas and philosophies coming into the country through the massive influx of English teachers from the West. Their […]

Does God Like Me? Rerun

Sorry folks, here’s another rerun. Still focusing on the book. Here’s the blog I mentioned in The Love Shack posting. This might explain why I loved Young’s ideas so much. For those of you who follow Christ with a complete awareness of and security in God’s Abba Love, it doesn’t make much sense (Big D, […]

The InterVarsity Press contract arrived in the mail yesterday. Truly it was a beautiful thing to behold. The publisher asked me on the phone if I could have the manuscript finished and in his hands by March 1, 2009. SURE! No problem. Then yesterday I opened the contract and there it was in black and […]

Heroes Make Me Cry

Why is it that heroes make me cry? I mean…okay…bawl like a baby? I was reading the account of the USAir pilot who safely landed his plane in the Hudson River. The report in USA Today stated that once all the passengers were off the plane, he walked the aisle not once, but TWICE to […]

The Dark Side of the Moon

When I was a little kid I could never figure out where the moon went. You know, when it was in the “new moon” phase (which I think is a funny thing to call a dark moon). But when I was a kid I couldn’t figure out why sometimes it was there and then it […]

You Get What You Need

Mick Jagger kind of freaks me out these days. Not trying to be disrespectful to the Rolling Stones or anything, but in Texas they’d say, “He’s been rode hard and put up wet.” But my life kind of reflects the Rolling Stones’ hit, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” Not that I take my […]

Could It Really Happen?

When I was a little kid my folks took us to church a lot. I mean a lot. Like every time the doors were opened! We also moved a lot when I was a kid. I mean a lot. Like ten times before I was even in high school. But wherever we moved we found […]

The Ministry of Kindness

Please don’t think I am trying to sound like Oprah Winfrey or anything, but wouldn’t the world be a better place if we were all kinder to each other? Today I had to go to the grocery store to pick up a few things. I hate using a grocery cart so I usually lie to […]

Lions and Tigers and Bears…Oh My!

There seems to be a lot of fear in the world today. Even among Christians. Fear of losing one’s job; fear of losing one’s retirement; fear of our political leaders; fear of natural disasters and fear of the future. Fear is such a funny thing because I believe God gave us the ability to fear […]
