On Faith: We should practice being Christ-like
"Be imitators of God as dear children, and walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us" (Ephesians 5:1-2). What does it mean to be a Christian? It basically comes down to this: to be a Christian is to be Christ-like. We are identified by being like one person...

On Faith: The angry christian
To say that the presidential primaries and the ensuing campaigns have been controversial may be a bit of an understatement. There have been numerous themes and ideas that have caught people's attention and have caused much discussion. One particular theme has been that this is the...

On Faith: Lost in memory
Lately I've been lost in memory. It is the smell of spring and early summer along the North Shore. During the winter I was wondering why I don't feel the same joyous feelings as I did as a kid coming up to the shore. Then when spring hit, my memories and good feelings started to flood...

On Faith: Building healthy relationships Part 4
One of the most common mistakes people make in trying to fill up another person's love bank (How to make your partner feel loved, March 18, 2016) is to assume that another person feels loved the same way you do. This is simply not true. In 1992 Gary Chapman wrote a book call the...

On Faith: The true story of 'The Exorcist'
One of the best-known books and films of the 1970's was William Peter Blatty's "The Exorcist." What is most interesting about "The Exorcist" is its background. When Blatty was a student at Georgetown in 1949, he heard from a New Testament professor of an actual exorcism that had...

On Faith: I give you a new commandment
Driving up Highway 61 a while back, I turned on the radio searching for something interesting to listen to. What I found was a Christian station whose host was inviting listeners to share verses of scripture that they feel our nation needs to hear and heed. Listening in as caller...

On Faith: The treasure of the ordinary
My attention was caught recently by the first line of the following poem, which I read in a daily devotional resource. I was intrigued enough to look up the entire quotation, which I share with you here: "Oh, the ordinary day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me not pass...

On Faith: 'Do you believe Jesus is God?'
I was driving down the cold, wet streets of Minneapolis, when this kid in my back seat broke the silence in an epic way. He'd been coming to our church's community supper. He was also a Somali immigrant, and a Muslim, and he managed to cut to the core of Christian faith.

On Faith: The love of Christ
In life, there are few things needed more than to know that we are loved. The love of our family, our friends; love gives us a sense of importance and worth that is not easily replaced. And yet for many of us, we struggle to name even a few people that truly love us. There isn't...

On Faith: Heaven's perfect day
I would venture to guess that as we made our way through another Northland winter this past year, and as winds off the lake made spring feel like chilly autumn over the last couple of weeks, the longing for a perfect late spring day ached within all of us.

On Faith: Whose servant are you?
Everyone is a servant of something. Those in the military are in service to our country. Government officials are supposed to serve the people as "public servants." Some people serve other masters such as money, fame or pleasure. Still others serve only themselves.

On Faith: Let go of bitterness like Peter Parker did
Years ago, while on vacation, my family went to see "Spiderman 3," a movie with lots of action and excitement, and a bit of theology. It is in many ways a story of revenge and bitterness. The main character, Peter Parker, has a friend who believes Peter killed his father, and so he...

On Faith: Don’t doubt but believe
It has been a couple of weeks since Easter and for many the joy and celebration has lost its luster. Many of us have faced a diagnosis of cancer; the realization that we are in a “dead end” job; maybe death has paid a visit to a dear family member or friend. We hear of a divorce...

On Faith: Spring to life
Spring is the time when everything comes to life again. Trees begin to get buds, grass turns green again, birds return and sing and farmers and gardeners are busy preparing for the growing season. It's a time when everything springs to life. Wouldn't it be nice if our lives could...
