When Things Look Hopeless, Look Back.

The summer is behind us and we’re now looking forward to what remains of an otherwise upside-down year. The past few months have been trying to say the least, and many of us wrestle with anxiety about what’s to come this fall.

Have You Invited Jesus Over Lately?

In the days following Jesus’ resurrection, we read in Luke 24 about His appearance to the disciples on the road to Emmaus. In that story, we learn about their discussions and about the dinner these disciples had with Jesus.

Are You Listening Christian?

Are you listening to me Christian? I have now been teaching college students for over twenty years. One of the greatest challenges of teaching is keeping the attention of the students. My subject may always be important to me, the teacher, but I have learned that my passion for the material is not always found in my listeners. Yes, even when what is being shared comes from a biblical source, we all struggle and strain at times to stay alert and engaged.
