A Name Above All Names

A Name Above All Names (Philippians 2: 5-11)   By this time in the Apostle Paul’s ministry, he finds himself imprisoned in Rome but that doesn’t get him down.  In fact, he’s very upbeat as he writes his friends and supporters in Philippi thanking them for their aid and support.  He summons them to rejoice [...]

Your Order Has Shipped

(Jeremiah 31: 31-34) Your Order Has Shipped   I love ordering from Amazon.  It’s so easy.  You go online, find what you want, and place your order.  Then you wait for the confirmation message and soon after that you get the message that says: ‘Your Order Has Shipped” along with the estimated date of delivery.  [...]

Hedging Your Bet (1 Corinthians 1: 18-25)   Teresa and I recently binge-watched a television series called Young Sheldon.  For those who are not familiar with it, the main character is Sheldon Cooper who is a genius born into an average American family that lives in upper northeast Texas in the fictional city of Medford.  [...]

Losing The Old Life

Losing the Old Life (Mark 8: 31-38)   When I was the Drug Court prosecutor for Jefferson County our addicts in recovery would regularly refer to their “old life” when talking about the way they lived when their drug-seeking behavior dominated their every-waking minute.  In their comments you didn’t get the feeling that their references [...]

Now Is The Time!

Now is the Time! (Mark 1: 1-15)   Timing is everything.  Both of my grandkids enjoyed cross country running through the Boys and Girls Club and Girls on the Run.  They had two distinct running styles.  At one of Eva’s big meets she started out at an almost dead run.  I overheard several people, including [...]

What’s the Hook

What’s the Hook? (2 Corinthians 4: 1-6)   I like hanging out at the church on Saturdays just for those unexpected “God shots” that I experience from time to time.  I’m chatty and will just about talk to anyone given the opportunity.  A couple of months ago an equally chatty fellow engaged me in conversation.  [...]

Adapt and React

Adapt and React (1 Corinthians 9: 16-23)   As I was preparing to lead the Celebration of Life of my brother who passed suddenly in December, I thought about what I was going to say, but more importantly, who I was going to be saying it to.  The sharp words of my granddaughter still ring [...]

Please Release Me

  Please Release Me (Mark 1: 21-28)   I know you’ve heard me say it many times, but being the Jefferson County Drug Court prosecutor for four years was one of the most impactful experiences of my professional life.  Now, it’s not as if I was naïve and had no idea of the toll substance [...]
