It’s been tough this week to watch piles of clothes, furniture, appliances, and TVs out in front of every home on my street. It’s dark. It’s difficult. 40,000 homes are under 4-8 feet of water. Nine megachurches are totally flooded. Not one church had services last Sunday. Jacob was in a dark place. Running from his […]
It seems we have all been a little shellshocked. What a summer. Terrorist attacks and campaigns. Shootings and tension. Now, it has come home to me more than ever. I have lived on Bethany Church’s North campus property for 53 years. I’ve never seen anything like what happened there this weekend.

John Kerry recently referred to a “world without borders.” Someone said that he left that speech, got into his armored car, and drove behind the […]
We are in a stressful time. Political changes are unnerving. Our enemies are gaining strength. The economy is fragile. Diseases are coming out of nowhere. Travel has become dangerous. It’s always good to come back to my “true north”: “how big is my God?” I was recently in Colorado. I was dwarfed by the massive […]
