  • Dead man rising this Easter

    About six or so years ago, I met a man who said he saw a dead man raised to life.

    The dead man’s name was Bob and the man who told me about it said God had told him to go to Bob’s house to pray.

    He didn’t know Bob had died until he got there, but since God had told him to pray, he figured he better do it. So, he asked Bob’s wife if he could see him.

    The man had seen death before, and Bob was dead. Even so, the man started praying because God had told him so.

  • Which message do you see?

    Every time my town has an event that draws a lot of people, from a Saturday’s farmer’s market to a festival or parade, a local pastor and members of his church are there, handing out gospel tracts.

    During the St. Patrick’s Day parade, Brother Troy was on the corner, handing out tracts.

    The one he gave me had an I.Q. test on the front with only one question. “GODISNOWHERE — What does this say?”

    People either see “God is nowhere” or “God is now here.”

  • All of us are so loved by Jesus

     Oh, to be loved as Dennis Williams is loved!

    A week or so ago on a Sunday afternoon, two women I don’t know knocked on my door.

    They said they knew me, or at least knew me through my writing and somehow thought I could help them find their friend Dennis.

    They knew enough about me to deduce that I owned my own home and searched the county property appraiser’s website to find my address so they could come and see me in person because they were that desperate to find their friend who was missing.

  • Playing catch-up with my soul

    In a story told by Rabbi Kushner, a group of tourists on an African safari hired several native porters to carry their supplies for them.

    After three days the porters announced they needed to stop and rest for a day.

    They didn’t appear to be tired, so the tourists asked why the need to stop. The porters said, “We are not tired, but we have walked too far too fast and now we must wait for our souls to catch up to us.”

    I totally get that. I run and run and work and life zips by and my soul gets left behind in the dust.
