I’m a news junkie. I like watching and reading the news and know what is going on in our town, across our state, the country and the world. It is interesting to know what is going on and to be aware of current events. Last week I saw a clip of an interview that was rather intriguing. This interview was given by Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York City, and who...

Rest is a necessary part of God’s ordered creation. Rest has been written into the rhythm of life since the world first began. We all know rest is necessary in this life because if we get too busy and do not slow down, life eventually catches up with us. You simply cannot rebel against the rhythm of the day.

Too Much Noise

Annoying-noise-001

Last week I was thinking about how much information we have access to today that wasn’t accessible 10-20 years ago. When I pull my iPhone out of my pocket there is very little that I can’t find. I have instant access to news, sports scores, and weather forecasts. I can shop and have packages delivered to my house. I can download books, podcasts, and movies. ...

A very natural inclination for people is to seek out comfort in this life. We gravitate towards a desire for physical, material, or relational comfort.

This is why we work so hard to save money and...

The Best Week of the Year

Easter

It is the greatest week of the year. I know it might not seem like it since we can’t seem to shake winter even though the calendar has turned to spring, but trust me, it is the greatest week of the year. What makes it so great? Well, in the church we call it “Holy Week” and it is the time that Christians around the world remember the culmination of God...

Seeing the Steeple

1417661_976426008059_1393257108_o

Looking back through my life I can remember a distinct feature that always drew my attention while traveling throughout the Midwest. Whether I was in the Dakota’s, Iowa, or anywhere else, I can always remember looking out towards the horizon, which tends to be flat in the Midwest. I remember looking out the car window to the horizon and seeing all the small towns pass...

Finding Easter Joy in the Cemetery

Cemetery

If you’re like most people, you’re probably not fond of hanging around cemeteries. Cemeteries are creepy. They’re sad. They remind us of death. If we were to associate a holiday with cemeteries, Halloween would likely be the first to come to mind....
