Small Group Tune Up

Every now and then, we need a tune up. We need to take our bodies to the doctor for a physical. We need to talk to a friend about our marriage. Our employers have us do year-end evaluations. Our cars need a tune up. And so do our small groups. This six week study will...

Discussion-based Lessons

Discussion-based Lessons

Discussion-based lessons have groups talking and changing. We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. "Instead SPEAKING the truth (not just hearing the truth) we will grow." Ephesians 4.15 https://www.youtube.com/embed/lduldVUA8-4

The Big Power of Little Words

The Big Power of Little Words

Oh, but how easy it is to forget the inherent power of our words. We gloss over their significance because they are commonplace to us. We take them for granted the way fish take water for granted. We are used to talk; it just is. We are full of, surrounded by, and...

Several films have been based on the story of Esther. In the ones I have seen, she is ravishingly gorgeous. Eyes shaped like crescents, unblemished olive skin. A Hollywood heartthrob, this lady. And, indeed, she must have been. Selected as the queen of Persia out of a...

This book is about the rest of your life. It’s about tomorrow. Your tomorrow—and the day after that. Your God-given future is not a haphazard jumble of confusing contingencies. If you feel stuck, you don’t have to be. If you feel discouraged, it’s time to deal with...

As far as rescue stories go, mine is wimpy. It won’t be made into a movie. I was never interviewed by a media outlet. You’ll never read my story in National Geographic or Reader’s Digest. In the encyclopedia of rescue operations, mine wouldn’t warrant a footnote. Yet...

Compelled to Sing

The Girl With Two Names

The Girl With Two Names

I have two questions to bring up in heaven. Not complaints, because we will have no complaints. And I’m not sure we will have questions. If we do, I’d like clarity on two topics: mosquitos and middle school. Was either one necessary? Wouldn’t the world have been...

Don’t get cozy in Persia

Blame it on the sudden warmth. Blame it on the welcome sight of buds on the trees. Blame it on a dash of young love. But blame it mostly on a serious case of stupidity. She and I were in college. We’d gone on a date or two and felt a spark or two. Spring was in the...

Made for this Moment: A study of the life of Esther

Winter casts a cold shadow. The days are short. The nights are long. The sun seems shy, hidden behind the grayness. Warmth has packed her bags and migrated to the tropics. Beach weather would be nice. But that’s not going to happen. It’s winter. Spring will see...
