A Legendary Character

  Here’s a rather useless fact that I find rather interesting. When we write letters we commonly end them with the words “Yours sincerely”. Have you ever wondered why we do this? The practice has its origins in ancient Rome. Roman sculptors often concealed cracks in apparently flawless marble statues with melted beeswax. When the…

A Legacy of Conviction.

There is a tale told of the great English actor Macready. An eminent preacher once said to him: “I wish you would explain to me something.” You are appearing before crowds night after night with fiction, and the crowds come wherever you go. I am preaching the essential and unchangeable truth, and I am not…

A Legacy of Investment

  I’m sure all of us have daydreamed about what we would do if we suddenly were given a large amount of money we weren’t expecting. Let’s suppose that you suddenly found yourself with an extra $100,000. How would you spend it? Several years ago the editors of USA Today asked that very question The…

The weekend of December 7, 1941, started out to be another routine weekend. The aircraft carriers were at dockside and the crews were enjoying the day with rest and relaxation.

DELIVERANCE HAS COME.

Stanley Praimnath, Vice President for Fuji Bank, was in his office in the South Tower at the World Trade Center when his phone rang. “Are you watching the news?’ asked a woman in their Chicago office. “Are you alright?” “I’m fine” he said wondering why she had called. Just then he turned to gaze out…

The Light has Come

Near New Brunswick Canada there is a church building on Deer Island that for many years has served as a physical lighthouse to the fishermen of that community. The Building is similar to any turn of the century Church building, but it is the location of the building that makes it ideal as a lighthouse….

Where the Fire Has Been.

H. A. Ironside told the story of pioneers who were making their way across one of the central states to a distant place that had been opened up for homesteading. They traveled in covered wagons drawn by oxen, and progress was necessarily slow. One day they were horrified to note a long line of smoke…

As it is in Heaven…..

Most of us are guilty of hearing far more than we do. We know what we ought to do but fail to execute on the knowledge we possess. As one man said, “We’re educated far beyond our own obedience.”Someone once compared listening without doing to auditing a class in college. As an auditor, you enroll…
