I'm a liberal, science-loving Christian...a whaaat?
Around three years ago, I went to a conservative Christian camp with people that I didn't know at all for a week. They were very welcoming and kind to me, and I had a great week. I fit in for the most part, until it was time to speak tongues. It soon became apparent to me that I was...

Somebody was thinking
If you are a Minnesota Twins fan over the age of 50, you might recognize the name Rich Rollins. Although he never made an All-Star squad, we remember him as a solid third baseman for the Twins during the 1960s. Some years ago, Rich received a phone call from a Fargo, N.D., sportswriter....

Clergy view: True change happens within
I'm on vacation, and I don't do cartoons like Billy in the comic section Family Circus of the Dispatch. However, I'll share a brief true story that happened to a pastor friend years ago. His son was being very disruptive in his behavior. The boy was running in and out of the house...

Column: Finding faith in non-material places
Recently, I decided to finally spend money on running clothes again. I found the perfect shorts when I was out with a friend in Southern Denmark. However, as I was walking back to my house, I saw that I somehow managed to lose my shorts.

Freedom from porn: Part II
In my last article, I explained why Jesus' words were true when he taught that we have to destroy lustful thoughts before they destroy us. Pornography is at epidemic levels in our society, and it causes so much hurt and sadness. But the truth will set you free! (John 8:32) As a young...

Orange is the new blessing
I had to wear orange. I like the color; it's in my color wheel as a flattering wardrobe choice. An orange jail jumpsuit, however, was never a choice for me. Instead, it was a consequence for a bad choice. I made a mistake. Who doesn't? I'm a sinner. We're all sinners.
