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...

Living Faith: Best Christmas gifts still being unwrapped
Each passing year, I find the Christmas season more packed with meaning and emotion of every kind. This was no less true this year as I savored the anticipatory days leading up to Christmas, desiring to take it all in slowly and purposefully. This mindset led me straight into a mini-meltdown...

Jesus' birth communicates who God is
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: Chance to dance with grandma's soul a gift
The last time we visited, we tried celebrating her 101st birthday. When Mom called to make reservations, the restaurant even promised a cake to mark the event. But Grandma would have none of it. She just closed her eyes and pretended she was elsewhere. When I tried to coax her...

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...

Clergy View: Come, Lord Jesus!
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...

Clergy view: Take time to be at home
Jesus told His disciples: "If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of mine.." (John 8:31 NASB) What does it mean for you to abide in His word? And how can you or I ever hope to do that? But Jesus said that those who abide in His word are truly, that is "in truth,"...

It's time to prepare for the winter season
A couple of weeks ago I was at our family lake cabin helping get the cabin ready for winter. It was a beautiful fall day to be working outside "putting summer away," and watching the leaves gently fall to the ground and into the lake. At the end of the day my parents and I had our...

Living Faith: 'Angry Girl' becomes new creation with God
Lately, I've been thinking about the person I used to be; the one that, if I'm to be honest, I have to call "Angry Girl." She still exists in some small part and perhaps always will. But she's much quieter now. Thanks be to God, I rarely see her. And when I do, she's mostly a reminder...

Living Faith: Saying grace before meals begets gratitude
"Do you pray before meals? Why or why not?" The question, asked by a friend on Facebook, was only cloaked in simplicity, I soon realized. In an instant, I was transported back 21 years, into an Arby's restaurant near Bremerton, Wash., where I'd traveled for a faith conference...
