Stand up for what you believe, but do it with love for one another

| April 15, 2017

Standing up for your own views is a good thing. Recognizing the views and values of others is a great thing. Coming together in respect for others is much too rare a thing … but it is likely the only way we’ll find peace while living here on this earth. Whether or not you accepted […]

Follow up video from Mr Godwrench and The Happy Church

| September 28, 2016

Thanks Tim for sending me the video from the Mr. Godwrench service day in Jackson, Kentucky (last week’s post). It was great to see the good times and teaching moments … both "hands-on" car maintenance and emulating what it is to have a Christian heart … and I’m sure it felt good for the givers […]

Music: Going Home from 1975 by Barry McGuire

| May 22, 2016

Above is a slideshow compilation set to Barry McGuire’s "Going Home" from his 1975 "To the Bride" album. It is one of my favorite McGuire songs (posted about him before). Now if I were new age, I’d say it "centers me" … but as a Christian (who loves sailing, hence the BluenoseII images), it sooths […]

He has risen …

| March 27, 2016

   Happy Easter to all believers and those yet to acknowledge God’s gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.  Today is the day we recognize the fullfilment of the earthly life of Jesus. Without the risen Lord and Saviour … we sinners are not capable of existing side by side with God. I am so thankful […]

On a spring Sunday in 30 A.D. (est), the city of Jerusalem was crowded with pilgrims who had come for the annual Passover celebration.

Ordered a discounted copy of “Killing Jesus”

| October 5, 2013

Don Imus had an excellent interview with commentator and bestselling author Bill O’Reilly a few days ago and the exchange has me even more interested in reading O’Reilly’s Killing Jesus. The book is presented as a “history” rather than a religious book but as a Catholic, O’Reilly believes inspiration comes from the Holy Spirit and thinks he […]

Archive: Triggering a Christian’s everyday mindset

| May 6, 2012

Christ calls us to be “fishers of men” not just “keepers of the aquarium.” Be bold today. Share the gospel in your deeds AND words.

Just a little Christian humor …

Thanks Jeff … although not sure I appreciated the “this reminds me of you” comment!

Campus Crusade for Christ changing name to Cru

| July 20, 2011

Something tells me that I’m not alone in wondering why an organization that has successfully carried out it’s mission while continuing to grow its ministry since 1951 is changing their name. Not only are they trying to create a less-descript “Cru” identity, but are dropping “Christ.” Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC) — the popular, large-scale […]
