What I’m Learning From Lent

I don’t know what your experience with Lent is like but Lent does not come easily to me. I was raised in a tradition where Lent was something those other people did. It was brushed aside as unnecessary. As a child, Lent was for kids who couldn’t eat chocolate or had to swear off TV for 40 days! I was glad to be well free of it. But as an adult...

The Good News of Easter

Jesus came to be a healer for those who suffer, a redeemer for all who have failed, a rescuer for all who are lost and alone, a life giver for all who are dying.  As we go into the Easter season think about the people in your life who are suffering without a Savior.

It was during the time when Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil...

The Resurrection: Reason to Rejoice

I remember several years ago standing behind the curtain during our church’s Passion Play. At the end of each performance, I would step out and explain how to be saved by trusting the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Savior. Onstage, Jesus had just risen, and the disciples were running back to look inside the tomb. I got so caught up in their excitement...

He Loves You
He Loves You

Recently, I was speaking with a friend about relationships. He shared with me about an experience that made him realize how great God's love is for us. I was so touched by his analogy that I'd like to share it with you. Most of us probably know what it's like to love or have a "crush" on someone and learn that the feeling is not mutual. We do...
