On Faith: Lutherans celebrate 500th anniversary of birth of faith

On Faith: And just who is my neighbor?
A lawyer asked Jesus a question to test him. When Jesus' answer doesn't help, he asked another: "And just who is my neighbor?" Scripture tells us he asks wanting to "justify" himself. So, Jesus tells this story familiar to those even beyond the Christian faith. It's the story of the...

On Faith: Confront without compromise, love without condition
On the night of November 9, 1938, an outbreak of violence aimed at Jewish citizens swept across Germany. Homes were ransacked, synagogues destroyed, cemeteries desecrated, and sacred books burned. The sidewalks of Jewish neighborhoods were so covered in shards of glass that the night...

On Faith: What's your flavor?
In the course of my life, I have been blessed to have numerous opportunities to experience the various flavors of Christianity. I grew up in the Roman Catholic Church, attended Vacation Bible School with a Dutch Reformed friend and experienced the beauty of Eastern rites. I have preached...

On Faith: The geography of grace
I recently returned from a month long sabbatical study leave, during which I studied geography; world geography, and specifically, the geography of the Middle East and the Holy Land. For whatever reason, I never learned geography during my student years, and as I've come to appreciate...

On Faith: The difference between a church and a cult
Dear friends and fellow fans of Jesus, When I was 18 or 19, my college pastor said to my college group: "Let me tell you the difference between a church and a cult." He had my attention.

On Faith: Passing on our faith to next generation
"Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, and write them on...

On Faith: Ingredients needed for worship
The family of an 8-year-old boy got a new piano. He very excitedly sat down on the bench and played, but he had never had a lesson, so it was just noise. Frustrated, he pounded harder and harder, but still just noise came from the new piano. Angrily, he closed the lid over the keyboard...

On Faith: Fulfilling your Christian calling
I am somewhat hesitant to write what I am about to write. Hesitant because I do not want to draw attention to me but rather use it as an example of what it means to be a follower of Christ. I am greatly concerned about the lack of many in all areas of life that have seemed to lost...

On Faith: The good shepherd
In John 10 Jesus teaches us about God being our shepherd. "The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he...

My wife and I recently shared a dinner with some friends; joining us were another couple who we had not met before. It was a nice evening with good food and conversation. After our meal my new friend turned to me and asked, "Did you vote for Mr. Trump?" I was impressed with such a...

On Faith: Silence at the empty tomb
After the Sabbath, some women were on their way to Jesus' grave to embalm his body. They were preparing to move on and come to terms with the finality of death once again. Along the way, they probably talked about how caring Jesus had been and what a great example he was. But then...
