Our Child-like God

| November 21, 2019

As I sit at my computer I see the first touch of Winter assailing the ground. As a child I remember the extreme unadulterated joy of the first snow. As I age I think of all the snow means for me now… gray skies, the fact that my snowblower is not ready for Winter, namely […]

Our 4th born child is named after the prophet Jonah.

| October 6, 2019

This is not due to the fact that Jonah was really a very admirable prophet, he really was not. The name Jonah the book of Jonah has one clear message, God was and is gracious and merciful slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, a love that is for ALL people! I recently read […]

Dear Parent, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it” Proverbs 22:6 The goal of Religious Education is to pass along the Christian Faith. The Christian Faith is the only thing that is going to last beyond your life and the life of […]

Get Them to Church

| July 1, 2019

The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

| May 17, 2019

Before you start reading this, open up your Bible and read John chapter 5. John 5 is an absolutely critical text for understanding the interrelationship between the Father and the Son.

What we are about has to do with Jesus

| April 7, 2019

This is quite true, but what about Jesus? There are two options that churches commonly take, when it comes to the centrality of Jesus as their mission: Either Jesus is firstly your example, or he is firstly your Savior. I propose that if these are in the incorrect order we will get many things wrong! […]

Slow Down

Recently Laura and I started team writing for a ministry called 1517. I would like to share with you our first post. “The truth is, of course, that what one regards as interruptions are precisely ones life.” -C.S. Lewis Arm over arm I make my way to the other side of the pool. Mentally I […]

This is the story of the Rag Man

| February 10, 2019

This month I want to share with you a story that I find powerful. Ragman by Walter Wangerin, Jr. I saw a strange sight. I stumbled upon a story most strange, like nothing my life, my street sense, my sly tongue had ever prepared me for. Hush, child. Hush, now, and I will tell it […]

Made Beautiful

| November 1, 2018

500 years ago this year Luther penned the Heidelberg Disputation. He delivered it at a pastor’s conference of Augustinian Monks in April.
