Lent is a time of prayer, fasting

This week marks the beginning of the Lenten period. Lent is a 40-day span before Easter that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday, which is the day before Easter. The six Sundays during this period are not counted because Sundays commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and are thought of as "mini Easters."

The god who answers by fire -- He is God!

Elijah said to them, "I am the only one of the Lord's prophets left, but Baal has four hundred and fifty prophets. Get two bulls for us. Let Baal's prophets choose one for themselves, and let them cut it into pieces and put it on the wood but not set fire to it. I will prepare the other bull and put it on the wood but not set fire to it. Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the Lord. The god who answers by fire - he is ...

Be patient with those who haven't grown up

Q: Our 19-year-old daughter is dating a 19-year-old boy, who, in general, we like.

Changing a region one soul at a time

"They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him. This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones. When he ...

Living life to higher standards

Last week I talked a little about Coach John Wooden, the legendary basketball coach at UCLA from the 1950s through the 1970s. The reason I had Coach on my mind was that I was reading a book about him and the seven principles by which he lived his life.

Embracing the love of Christ, part 2

"A soap manufacturer and a [preacher] were walking together down a street in a large city. The soap manufacturer casually said, 'The Gospel you preach hasn't done much good, has it? Just observe.

Seizing the opportunity, the [preacher] said, 'I see that soap hasn't done much good in the world, for there is much dirt and many dirty people around.' The soap manufacturer ...
