A Model on Mentoring

June 29, 2012

A popular television series features various forms of communal living in America. Weekly episodes feature the Hutterites, the Amish, and other peripheral movements. Granted there are dysfunctional displays, after all it is drama. The tension makes for good TV. And I notice misapplication of Bible beliefs and intentions, as well as improper understanding of Church practice. But as one embedded in American norms, I am struck with the simplicity of their lifestyles. Each movement is absolutely c...

Elisha Room

June 19, 2012

A number of years ago I was asked to be the speaker at a special banquet in honor of newly ordained ministers. I asked my wife Stefanie to help me on a project. She is very good with crafts. We went to a craft supply and purchased the items needed to make a Bible that would fit on the bookshelf in each of their libraries.

Do you remember when the religious leaders got in an argument with Jesus? They claimed special credentials because they were from the lineage of Abraham. I can just hear the dripping arrogance as they retort, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said in essence, "I know you're from the...

I'll Run No Matter What

May 9, 2012

"'I'll run no matter what!' Ahimaaz insisted. 'Alright then, run!' Joab said." (2 Samuel 18:23)

One soldier was afraid to take the life of the rebel Absalom because he overheard the king's command to bring him back unharmed. Joab had to do the deed himself. And then his armor bearers finished him off. But this young man Ahimaaz is fearless, He volunteers to bear the bad news of Absalom's death to the king. Joab refuses him because he usually brought good news, and sends another. Ahimaaz persis...
