A hope for the holidays

Beautifully wrapped Christmas gifts, Christmas trees, holiday parties, unending upbeat carols in shops and malls, visits from friends and family, baking and cooking, food everywhere - and the awed, hushed joy of welcoming a tiny infant to the world - these are the images and memories of Christmas most of us celebrate and treasure.

One good and faithful servant retires from a life of ministry

Rev. Ben Martin addressed the large crowd gathered in the Springfield United Methodist Church on Nov. 9 with a powerful question, "What if Ed Cadle Sr., had retired 20 years ago from the ministry and went fishing every day instead of forming Mission on the Move?" Rev. Martin answered his own question, explaining that children in Tapachula, Mexico, would still be living in prison with one or both of their parents, enduring daily physical and sexual abuse. Fortunately, Cadle didn't go fishing but went to Tapachula instead and built three Christian homes for those children. Now, at the age ...

I could be wrong

This past Monday, a young man came to see me at Armstrong. He was referred to me and my department in the College of Health Professions because he had been essentially kicked out of the professional health care program in which he was enrolled, and he was looking for a new major. He was simply told that he wasn't cut out for that job.

Beyond God’s blessing in marriage

If you ask a local pastor the phrase he is most likely to hear when counseling a couple struggling in their relationship, my bet is that somewhere in the top three is the statement, "he (she) has changed."

From Peter to ‘worshippers of the cross’

In the book of Acts, chapter 8, we find the account of St. Peter witnessing to an Ethiopian eunuch, baptizing him and presumably sending the faith back with this new Christian to Ethiopia. Regular church-goers know the story. We can also presume that this convert was the forerunner of the Ethiopian church, which we rarely hear much about, at least not until recently.

Wisdom for living from a wounded Marine

Sometimes we pastors are humbled by the wisdom we find in others. We think that we, having been schooled in scripture, have a monopoly on wisdom. And then we hear someone speak on life and truth from a deeply personal experience, and we realize we have no such monopoly and our pontificating may be lacking something. Here is an example of a true account that leaves me feeling humble.

The ‘Today’ show defines prayer

NBC's advertising of the "Today" show's Monday morning segment on prayer caught my attention. While the promotions were run continually and ad nauseum, at least they signaled a possible shift by the usually highly secular show toward an acknowledgement, if not appreciation, of things spiritual.
