On Faith: Crayon Box
One of the things I love about this time of year is back to school shopping. For teenagers, back to school shopping is all about clothes. That's not the kind of back to school shopping I'm talking about. I'm talking about shopping for fresh cedar pencils, multicolored folders, fresh...

On Faith: We are the resurrection story
One of the lesser known saints of the past century was a man named Clarence Jordan. Clarence was born in 1912 in the heart of Georgia. As a child he learned the familiar song "Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so ..." But the words, "red and yellow, black and white,...

On Faith: Love wins
Our nation is trillions of dollars in debt teetering on the brink of financial disaster. Racial violence is escalating in our cities and people are going to bed hungry every night in a country of super abundance. There is an increase in violence directed toward people of faith with...

On Faith: 'Peace. Be still.'
Last Sunday, the gospel text in my congregational worship service was the familiar tale of Jesus stilling the storm, from Luke 8:22-25. In this Scripture lesson, we are told that Jesus and his disciples set off in a boat at night to cross the Sea of Galilee. While not as large as...

On Faith: Modeling Christ
During the Civil War a train was carrying among its passengers to Richmond, Gen. Robert E. Lee and some of his staff. The general was seated in the rear and all the other places were filled with officers and soldiers. An elderly woman, poorly dressed, entered the coach at one of...

On Faith: God your healer
Had you been travelling along the Red Sea following the famous Israelite crossing of the same, you might have seen an unusual sight — a celebration in the desert! You would have heard tambourines, harps and singing. You can read about this in Exodus chapter 15. But after the celebration,...

On Faith: Forgiven people need to be forgivers
Debt is an ugly word. For those of us with debt, wouldn't it be amazing to get a call from our creditors saying our debt has been paid? "No need to keep making payments. Your debt is canceled! You are debt free!" For Christians, that is our experience, not financially, but spiritually....

On Faith: Rainbow in someone's cloud
After returning from a three week trip to Arkansas to visit our son and daughter-in-law, I found there were some bills that needed to be paid. Now I have not gotten in the habit of paying bills online or using a debit card, and so it was off to the post office where I always try to...

On Faith: The many different masks of shame
Over the last few months, we have been talking about how we can get unstuck from both our addictive behaviors and unhealthy relationships. One of the biggest dynamics that lock people into a state of being stuck is how they perceive themselves. Out of all the emotions that drive...

On Faith: The lost book of the bible
1 Corinthians 5:9 contains a most interesting biblical reference where the Apostle Paul mentions a previous letter that he had written to the church of Corinth. The reference to this letter is noteworthy for two reasons. The first reason is the early church accepted thirteen of...

On Faith: When words fail
I buried my father this week. In my 22 years of ministry I have presided at scores of funerals and laid many a father to rest with the prayers of the church accompanied by tears and laughter. But this was different. This was my dad. This time I was a mourner and a son instead...

On Faith: Living the resurrection
A little known saint of the 20th century was a man named Clarence Jordan. Jordan was born in 1912 and raised in the heart of Georgia. As a young man, he earned a degree in agriculture and then a Ph.D in new testament studies. He combined his passions for agriculture and the gospel...

Dr. W. A. Criswell, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, said on one occasion on an airplane flight he found himself seated beside a well-known theologian. He desperately wanted to start a conversation and they did get to talk. The man told Criswell about how he...

On Faith: The trouble with comparisons
I want to share with you a poem I wrote a few years ago. It's an honest-to-goodness sonnet, in case anyone cares. The Trouble With Comparisons Should eagles try to teach themselves to swim? Should dolphins seek to spread their fins and fly? Are coiling pythons, having...
