Only Human

“In 1992, a Los Angeles County parking control officer came upon a brown El Dorado Cadillac illegally parked next to the curb on street-sweeping day. The officer dutifully wrote out a ticket.

ADVANCE

Walt Disney was a dreamer. His crowning vision was EPCOT: Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. He envisioned the perfect city of 20,000, using all of the most modern advances in technology. But there was a problem. Walt died before his dream was ever realized. His dream was so big, so complex, and so outside the box that no one else in…

Faith & Life Part II

Larry Crabb tells this story from his childhood. One Saturday afternoon, I decided I was a big boy and could use the bathroom without anyone’s help.

Faith & Life

Max Lucado tells the delightful story of a parakeet named Chippie.  To be completely honest he never saw it coming. One second he was peacefully perched in his cage.

To the Ends of the Earth

Church History is full of stories like that of Henry Martyn, a Cambridge University student, who was honored at only 20 years of age for his achievements in mathematics. In fact, he was given the highest recognition possible in that field. And yet he felt an emptiness inside. He said that instead of finding fulfillment in his achievements,…

Fakers

The story is told of Theodore Roosevelt during his time as a rancher, and one of his cowpunchers lassoed a maverick steer, lit a fire, and prepared the branding irons. The part of the range they were on was claimed by Gregor Lang, one of Roosevelt’s neighbors. According to the cattleman’s rule, the steer therefore…

Witness

The most famous ship of all time is possibly the Titanic, the supposedly unsinkable ship that went down on its maiden voyage. Many movies have been made and many books written about the fateful journey. Few will include the story of Scottish evangelist John Harper. Harper was a passenger on the Titanic. In 1912 Harper…

Kingdom

In the final pages of the final book of CS Lewis’s epic metaphor “The Chronicles of Narnia” we read this final dialog between Aslan, who was to illustrate Jesus Christ, and Peter, Edmund, and Lucy who were the heroes of the narrative. A lifetime had passed between the opening book and this closing account. Aslan…
