Easter is already in the rearview mirror, but I thought it might be good to give a little more reflection to all that Jesus won for us through the Cross. Good Friday comes and goes so quickly, we don’t have the opportunity to reflect on all the... READ MORE

“We could sure use some hope right now.”

I was chatting with a friend last week about the things going on in our lives and in the world, when she said this. We weren’t talking about major loss, or suffering—just the way everyone seems to...

Dear Friends,

That word – friends – feels so comforting to me right now, as I write you the kind of letter you never want to have to write, but wouldn’t not write for the world. I need to share some words about...

Dear Friends,

This may be one of the most important letters I’ve written you.

I want to deepen our understanding about something I wrote you last month—how Hatred has become the new “spirit of the age.” I wrote that...

“I’m having a crisis of imagination,” my wife said to me just the other day. “About heaven.”

It’s been a tough year for our family and those near us. A tragic suicide, followed by the loss of our first grandson. Eight months of chronic...

Dear Friends,

“Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up” (Luke 18:1). I find that line immensely encouraging; I’m grateful Scripture precedes the story of the “persistent widow” with that...

It had been one of Those Days.

You know the kind—when everything seems to go sideways from the moment you get out of bed.
