Singing Advent

We love Christmas music. You can hardly go to a store without hearing people gently humming as they go about their business. At no other time of year are the radio, MP3 player, and turntable used so often than at Christmas. Stores, radio stations, office buildings, and especially elevators are [...]

The Eagles are Coming

Rearranging our living room the other day, I came across one of my most beloved possessions, one I thought was lost. It is a copy of JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy given to me by my wife when we first began dating. I found myself flipping through its [...]

Rooted and Built Up

Fall is officially upon us, and as we hoisted the tent for Celebration Sunday, pounding the support stakes into the ground, we realized something—you don’t have to go down very far to find a solid limestone shelf. The Wabash Presbyterian Church is literally built upon a rock. What a fitting [...]

Pressing Forward

…this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:13) “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, old time is still a flying. And this [...]

Vital Friendships

“After David had finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself.” (1 Samuel 18:1) Point of confession: there are times when the demands of pastoral ministry and being a father to my children and an attentive husband to my wife do [...]

Tuning Our Ears

“And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation…and his incomparably great power for us who believe.” (Ephesians 1:13, 19) We receive messages constantly—all day, every day. Regardless which way we turn, someone or something always has something to say [...]

A Faith That Sticks

“For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity to self-indulge, but through love become slaves to one another.” (Galatians 5:13, NRSV) Moments in life that have enduring significance are born from simply responding rightly when opportunities arise. Last week in [...]

How $100 Changed My Life

Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common.  (Acts 2:43-44) We were standing around sharing coffee and conversation after worship one Sunday. In my ignorance, I was unable to understand much of [...]

Experiencing the Mystery

Not long ago, I was at a large gathering, and seated at my table was a couple in their 80s who had been married over 50 years. During our conversation, it came up that the husband, Roger, wanted to visit Greece before he died. “I never knew that about you!” [...]

It Was Meant for You

Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures . . . (1 Corinthians 15:3). In his book Letters to a Young Evangelical, Tony Campolo tells the story of being in a communion service with his parents when he was very young. Seated in the pew in front of them [...]
