A Light in the darkness wherever we are.

As you look around this Sunday you might notice that a few of the regulars are missing. This week in the annual NYR (Nationwide Youth Roundup) youth conference in the mountains of Colorado. Students from around the country will converge on a peaceful mountainside to worship our Lord and be challenged by his word. This…

1st John Series, Battlefield

If you read through 1 John, you’ll come across a short statement that might seem a little confusing: “Do not love the world or the things in the world”. This is the same Apostle who wrote that “God so loved the world that he sent his only son” (John 3:16). John isn’t schizophrenic, nor did…

Walk HIS Way

If you’re a people watcher you’ve probably noticed children who walk like their parents!  Like a man in St. Louis who walked with a little bit of a bounce. The balls of his feet were more involved in his walk than most of us. His son walked the same way. Or a Doctor who walked…

Burning Brightly, 1st John Series

On the coast of Norway there is a lighthouse where a keeper lived with his two children. One day he went on shore for provisions. A storm arose, and he was unable to return. The time for lighting the lamp came, and Mary, the elder child, said to her little brother, “We must light the…

Leadership

There is a story told of a young woman who wanted to go to college, but her heart sank when she read the question on the application blank that asked, “Are you a leader?” Being both honest and conscientious, she wrote, “No,” and returned the application, expecting the worst. To her surprise, she received this…

Foundation of LOVE

Our culture seems to champion a false notion of love. Tolerance and diversity are its defining features. Meanwhile, the truth is generally held in high suspicion—if not treated with outright contempt. For as much as the Apostle John was known for his use of the word “love,” he was equally concerned with the substance of…

Family Contentment

The story is told of a rich industrialist who was disturbed to find a fisherman sitting lazily beside his boat. “Why aren’t you out there fishing?” he asked. “Because I’ve caught enough fish for today,” said the fisherman. “Why don’t you catch more fish than you need?’ the rich man asked. “What would I do…

The foundation of Strong Communication

George Bernard Shaw once said,The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. Communication is such a part of who we are today yet so much of it fails to reach its mark. In 2010 107 trillion emails were sent and 89.1% of them were spam. To complicate matters the…

The Foundation of INTEGRITY.

An American Vice President was once quoted as saying, “America’s greatest strength is not the example of our power but the power of our example.” The simple wordplay actually illustrates a profound truth that goes beyond the question of foreign policy. It’s the difference between coercion and attraction, between dragging and leading. A leader can…

The Foundation of Influence.

A little boy forgot his lines in a Sunday school presentation. His mother was in the front row to prompt him. She gestured and formed the words silently with her lips, but it did not help. Her son’s memory was blank. Finally, she leaned forward and whispered the cue, “I am the light of the…
