Live And Learn


I have learned many things in life.  Some have been simple lessons, such as not touching a hot stove with your bare hand.  Others have been more complicated, such as learning that when your wife is hinting at something she is really telling you that you should just do it.  We live and we learn […]

Lives That Matter


Everyone wants to live a life that matters.  No matter who you are or where you are from, we all want to make a difference.  I recently concluded a Bible study in which I did character profiles of important characters in the Bible.  One of the driving things of all of them is that they […]

Truth Isn’t Truth


Over the weekend, Rudy Giuliani, who is most recognised as being the mayor of New York City during 9/11 and who is also one of President Donald Trump’s lawyers, made headlines by saying, “Truth isn’t truth.” Giuliani said the now infamous line in response to Chuck Todd, the anchor of the show he was on, […]

Absolute Trust in An Absolute God


Trust is a word that is misused and abused a lot these days.  It’s also a concept that is seriously lacking in our generation.  No one trusts anyone anymore.  And for good reason.  It’s hard to find people that you can fully trust, even among your friends and family.  But there is someone who you […]
