My Dad was the Man


He died April 29, 2017, at the age of 87.  He lived for Christ, for kingdom and for family.  He was a man.

Dad pastored for 67 years, so I was raised a preacher’s kid, but I didn’t have anything to complain about.  He wasn’t one of those famous preachers – he was a small church pastor in small towns all over Oklahoma, Utah and Arizona.  A champion.  A huge influence on entire communities.  He served because it mattered, because he was called, not for fame or ambition.  It was as pure as it gets.

Paper prophets and committees of one…


A long time ago, as a young boy, I took my first motorcycle ride on my own.  I had no instruction, no warning, and certainly no idea of the power that was in that little engine.   While I understood the general idea of the throttle activated by the handgrip, I was not well versed on how the brakes worked – nor did I have experience steering the thing.

When Will the Church Rescue the Drowning?


It’s an incredible story, just now unfolding.  A family of nine swimming together in Panama City, in trouble due to strong currents just off the beach, are about to drown.  One has given up and told the others to save themselves.  No lifeguards are near and most of the people on the beach seem oblivious.

It’s Time to Lead


The election is past, and we’ve got a new chapter ahead in our nation. It’s time to lead.

It’s time for the church to lead the way – because no governmental institution can do what the church can do. No one has a leader like we do – King Jesus. No one has the power of the Gospel and forgiveness like we do. We have to lead.

A Lot of Mess In Between


God is a great God who can turn our mess into mercy in a moment.

That’s the thought I get when I read Psalm 105 and the narrative of Joseph.  You know, the Hebrew guy with the many-colored coat, whose jealous older brothers faked his death, and sold him to into slavery to Egyptian traders.  What a life.  What a mess.

The Church United vs. Culture Divided


Striking images hit me this morning. The recent string of cultural and racial clashes in our nation, the senseless killing of police officers, along with the ever-present terrorism world-wide have me wondering, “How can this be changed?”

Who will stop shouting, stop dividing and begin reconciling? There’s one answer – the Church will do this. She’s made for this. The church was birthed in racial strife, where Jews and Gentiles raged against one another until the gospel drew us closer together.

Five Responses by the Christian in a Same-Sex Marriage World


On June 26, 2015, the SCOTUS ruled 5-4  to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states.   This is not the first time SCOTUS has ruled contrary to Scriptural truth and natural law.  It IS momentous.  The landscape is changing and the cultural plates are shifting.

What’s happening in America is the result of the ever-widening gap between absolute truth and relativism.  In America, our nation is redefining what we want to consider to be truth.  SCOTUS did this Roe vs. Wade when devaluing life in the womb.  The consequences have been wide-ranging and horrific, and this will always be a consequence as we step further away from truth.  WE have no authority to define truth.  GOD does, and already has. We look to Him to know and understand truth. …more
