The Lowered Truck Methodology Of Preaching

By |October 27th, 2019|

I watched as the truck, if it could still be referred to as such, teetered like a see-saw on the speed bump. It was the early nineties, in the midst of the “lowered truck” era. For those unaware of that era and phenomenon, please allow me to explain.

Our home is lovely and clean. I need to make sure you understand all of that before I

Keith Ellison. Andre Carson. Ilhan Omar. Rashida Tlaib. These names have two interesting things in common. One, they are all Democrat congressmen and congresswomen in the United States House of Representatives. Two, they are all Muslims. And while Muslims, like Christians, are not all the same, they also, like Christians, have a common code of law that attends their religion.

By |October 14th, 2019|Tags: , |

As I sit typing this column, I am not the least bit distracted by my two finger, hunt-and-peck style of typing. No, I got that from my genius grandfather, and I can type as fast this way as most people can who use the “accepted and appropriate” style of typing. But what I am distracted by is my ring finger on my left hand, the finger that has for more than twenty-five years been home to the simple gold band

Why Are They Fighting?

My oldest daughter, now eighteen years old, has always been one of the most amazing people I know. She currently works 28 hours a week, goes to college full time, and serves the Lord a great many hours a week as well. She honestly outworks and out hustles many adults I know. But it is usually her precocious brain that provides me the most smiles during the course of the day. My perpetually straight A daughter, high school salutatorian, started
