  • How important is it to know God?

    I have thought about why many Christians, including myself, so often struggle in a lukewarm state of mind much more than we should. To say the least, there are several reasons, but actually these are not considered justifiable excuses.

  • Word of elderly couple’s divorce brings their children home for visit

    An elderly woman called her daughter who lives out-of-state and delivered the news: “I hate to interrupt your day, but I need to tell you that your Dad and I are getting a divorce. After 51 years, I’ve had all I can take, and I can’t take no more.”



    “But, Mom,” the daughter began.

    “No ‘buts’ about it,” Mom said. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your brother and tell him.”

    Dominican ‘Come and See’ weekend

  • Everyone chooses her or his own path

    I had a serious conversation the other day with a middle-aged man, and we talked for a couple of hours about God. I’ve known him for years, and we’ve had these discussions before, but I noticed he has become stronger in his opinions, which by the way, are based on atheism.

  • Nothing can keep us from God’s love

    Memories can be a wonderful place to visit when they are pleasant and filled with peace and joy. On the other hand, not all of our experiences have been good and can be more like a haunted house on a dark and stormy night. We all have our collections of thoughts and our own task of trying to figure out a way to deal with them. As most of us know, there are positive ways and negative ways to handle our past experiences. We can look around and see that many people are not doing such a good job when it comes to emotional management.

    I always enjoyed hanging out with Southern Baptist preacher Denvil Taylor because he was so full of biblical wisdom and because he was so very witty.
