Living Faith: True love means more than chocolate kisses
On Valentine's Day last week, a friend's Facebook status touted her belief in love but refusal to celebrate a "holiday" marked mostly by the artificiality of chocolate kisses, bright-red hearts and cupids. I agree with what's behind her sour-candy sentiments, and in years past, have...

Rembrandt's painting evokes mercy musing
The woman sitting next to me on the plane either must have thought me mad or, at the very least, wondered about the book I held that had procured such pervasive highlighting. Page after page, the underlines, notes and dog-eared folds were coming. It had not started this way. At the...

Living Faith: Despite longevity, Grandma's death deeply felt
About a month after she was born, World War I broke out. She'd lived through 17 presidents and 10 popes, and outlived most of the people she'd known in her long years. Married to my grandfather, Joseph, for 38 years, she then lived another 38 as a widow. The pastor at Grandma's funeral...

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 You've probably heard someone say, "Let's flesh this idea out." When someone says that, they're trying to formulate a real-world...

Living Faith: Gluttony a sneaky sin that loves this season
The sugarplums have begun dancing in my head. Only this holiday season, they're wearing a bit of a mischievous grin. As they bow and curtsy so cutely, I'm reminded of a sin I'd chosen for years to ignore: gluttony. I'm likely not alone in having blissfully overlooked this sinister...

There is a story about a Christian man who would walk to his bedroom window before going to bed each night, look out and up to the heavens, and in a simple prayer, ask: "Tonight, Lord?" Then he closed the curtains and went to bed. Each morning he would walk to the same window, open...
