Heartbreaker - A few days ago my wife (Mindy), my two sons and I were riding down the road, almost home. Mindy and I were talking about something, I can't remember what, but it seemed quite important at the time. Suddenly, out of the backseat came a stream of rock n roll, and I mean the loud kind, out of my 7-year-old, Elijah. It went a little something like t... Full Story

Climbing the pole - "It's too high!" "Come on, Mark. Let's just do this," the physical education teacher at St. Peter's Prep encouraged. "You can do it, just believe in yourself." "Believing in yourself is easy when you're standing on the ground," the third-grader thought to himself as he was inching upward on the wooden pole. "How much further to go?" Mark called d...

Asking the right questions - Some people think they need to find the right answers. Others understand that it's even more important to ask the right questions. In the movie "Jurassic Park," scientists use DNA from fossils to bring dinosaurs to life on an island, with the intention of opening a theme park with the dinosaurs as the main attraction.

A final column - This a bittersweet time for me. I am preparing to leave my loving church here to take a call to ministry at a loving church in Ohio. While I look forward to my future ministry, I also feel deep sorrow at leaving. My sorrow is not just because I am leaving the amazing and wonderful people at Riviera United Church of Christ, but because I am also l... Full Story

A good idea or inspiration, which is it? - On Dec. 5, an event will be taking place in Melbourne that's not being done anywhere in or out of the U.S. to my knowledge. Can there be such an event, and if so, who thought of it? So glad you asked; because, a major point about this event is that it wasn't thought motivated, but, before I go on, let me ask you this: Do you believe that inspired... Full Story

The truth within - Not long ago I sent a friend of mine two samples of some articles I had written and asked him for feedback. This particular person is someone I have known for well over 30 years, so I knew he would be honest with me. I found his response rather interesting.
