I AM . . .

Do you have a favourite musical group?  No doubt it has changed through the years.  When I was a young teen, I liked the Monkeys.    Then I graduated into a number of the Canadian Bands, BTO, Five Man Electrical Band, Trooper, April Wine. When I went to Bible college, most of those groups were frowned…

The Greatest Commandment

Wow, it’s 2021.  I don’t know that there has ever been a new year as anticipated as this one.  Considering the year we just came through not sure that that says a lot about 2021, or 2020.  Kind of like the guy who was banging his head against a wall and someone asked him why…

Even Though. . .

Have you ever argued with God?  Or complained to God?  Have you ever wanted to know why He did what He did and why He didn’t do what he didn’t do? Perhaps you were simply offering him advice on how to run the world.  Not necessarily the entire universe but the world, or at least…

But what about when you think you are making a good decision and you’re asked to do something different?  Not something bad, just something different, perhaps something…

Step out . . . In Faith

He was their entire life.  And they were incredibly thankful. They knew people who had never been able to have children, and even those they only had one, he meant the world to them.    It wasn’t that they couldn’t conceive, that they were able to do, but some cruel twist of fate made his…

Step out With Abraham

When Michelangelo was 72 years old he started work on the monumental dome of St. Peter’s Basilica.  When Galileo was 74 he published his dialogue concerning two new sciences.  When Stradivarius was in his early 90s he fashioned two of his most famous violins.  When P.T Barnum was 71 he joined James Bailey to form…
