  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I hope they are a blessing! If you are a preacher yourself, feel free to use what you can, but make it your own. I beg, borrow and "steal" from as many people as I can and filter it through my own heart and life to put together messages that I hope will truly transform people for eternity. So you have my permission to beg, borrow, and "steal" from me. After all, the man who said, "I’m going to be original or nothing," ended up with nothing.
  • Family: I am married to my wife, Sandy, and we have three grown children, Elizabeth (married to Nic), Peter (married to Naseem), and Tim (married to Emily). We also have six grandchildren, Eva, Joel, Deason, William, Arthur, and Charlie whom we enjoy very much.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: "Turn your indicatives into imperatives" (Dr. John Reed, Dallas Theolgocial Semiary)
  • Hobbies: I play trumpet and enjoy good science fiction novels and movies.

    Just this last Monday (April 15, 2019), many of us were horrified to watch the great Cathedral of Notre Dame on fire. Its great spire toppled into the roof of the cathedral, and many feared that Paris’ most iconic landmark would be a total loss after standing for 850 years. However, early the more

  • Jesus Cared

    Contributed on Jan 2, 2013

    JESUS CARED Henri Nouwen once said, "What we see, and like to see, is cure and change. But what we do not see and do not want to see is care: the participation in the pain, the solidarity in the suffering, the sharing in the experience of brokenness. And still, cure without care is as more

  • Jealous Horses

    Contributed on Feb 3, 2011

    JEALOUS HORSES When we lived in a small town in central Kansas (Ellsworth), we made many trips to the nearest big town, Salina, Kansas on old Kansas Route 140. On one of those trips in the spring (March 12, 1990), we saw a horse at the edge of a luscious, green pasture with his head stuck more

    Contributed on Sep 23, 2010

    In the story of Pollyanna, there is a woman who runs the town. She’s not the mayor and doesn’t even sit on the city council. It’s just that she has inherited a tremendous amount of money from her father, and she has a controlling interest in all the major businesses in town. As a result, no one more
