On Faith: He has not abandoned you
It's an interesting time we live in. You don't have to go too far to find someone who grew up without a parent. We all know of someone who is still dealing with a hard breakup or divorce. We've all been hurt by broken relationships. We all experience loneliness; and not one of us...

On Faith: Running the race of life
Since the Summer Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro are upon us, and many of us have "olympic fever," I thought it would be appropriate to write in a sport-themed way for this On Faith column. "Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the...

On Faith: Have you embraced God's promises?
Hebrews 11:8 tells us, "By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he lived as an alien in the land of promise... for he was looking for the city which has...

On Faith: The importance of 'I do'
A comedian once joked: "My wife left me recently. She said it was because I didn't listen to her... at least that's what I think she said. The game was on." Funny statement, maybe, but not a funny concept. Divorce is so very common in our country, to the point that it's often referred...

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.
