On Faith: Faith in real life, hope in action
Most often, Christians are identified by what separates us. I often get the question, "What denomination (or sect) do you belong to?" Identifying me by my denomination misses the point entirely about who Jesus is and what he has done in my life.

It's harvest time. Gardeners are reaping the benefits of the planting they did last spring, and all the hard work this summer. The Bible tells us that life is like that too; we will reap the harvest for what we have done, both good and bad. "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked....

On Faith: Unexpected turns in life
The Bible is full of stories with an unexpected turn. While the Easter story is rightly the most prominent, there are many others throughout scripture. A double-dose of the unexpected is found in the liberation of the Israelites in Exodus Chapters 14-16.
