We are His hands and feet

I don’t know about you, but during this time of social distancing and staying home, I am going a little stir-crazy. During a recent Bible study (via teleconference) I recalled a time when I prayer walked for a prayer time at our church. I had three pages of prayer requests with me as I walked…

Fear or Faith?

We are certainly going through unprecedented times right now. We have not seen a broad-scale health pandemic since the Spanish Flu in 1918. We have not seen the stock market drop so significantly since at least 2008, maybe since 1997, and perhaps back to 1929, depending on what measures you use and how you look…

The view matters

We all know that the storms of life come and go.  They may blow through quickly, like a tornado, or stay for a while, like a hurricane.  You may be lucky enough to have just a light shower now and then.  You may be currently in a lull, that probably means you just came out…

Transforming Energy

I have been reading a book on ‘intrapreneurship” and it referenced a law of thermodynamics that says: Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but simply transforms. For the book, it was talking about creative energy of employees, but I immediately fell in love with this law. Think of it.  It’s certainly true of me, especially…
