Presidential anniversaries and shared responsibility

This month, our nation has two pivotal anniversaries: the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address by President Abraham Lincoln (Nov. 19), and the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (Nov. 22). The first anniversary reflects the core message of remembrance, forgiveness, rebuilding and honor. The second, the assassination of a president who embodied youth and hope, reminds us how an instant can not only end the life of an individual, but also upend a nation.

Membership has its privileges

OK - time for true confessions. I have to admit something to you. My church does all sorts of things for the community - Easter 4 Kids, Vacation Bible School, Soccer Camp, Christmas 4 Kids, and the list goes on.

But, I said I had to confess something: We had ulterior motives. We might have kind of tricked some of our guests. It's not that we didn't do what ...

Why Christians don’t fear Judgment Day

Picture yourself in the courtroom, awaiting the verdict. How are you feeling? It's your verdict … your future. It's a death penalty trial. You're hoping your lawyer did enough, but ... in a moment, you will either be free - or condemned. Not a comfortable feeling, is it?

Cemeteries have history — and rules

You may be a taphophile and not know it, unless you know the meaning of the word. A taphophile is someone interested in, perhaps obsessively so, cemeteries, headstones, funerals and epitaphs. "Tombstone tourist" is another way of putting it.

Time to get real about what we value

Transformation is fascinating, especially when the change is dramatic and you can see it happen before your very eyes. That point was underscored to me this week by "Body Evolution," by Global Democracy, a video that was released two years ago, but went viral last week, when the model was identified publicly.

God can provide contentment

The shopping mall is a dangerous place. You know that, right? And I'm not just talking about the potential thief in the parking lot or the danger of having someone steal your credit card information. I'm talking about something much worse. I'm talking about danger for our souls.

Grace Notes: loving our neighbors

I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a word in the English language that is more overused and a concept that is more underused than "love."
