Gospel Witness: A Deeper Understanding of Urgency and Sovereignty

Those of us who live in Colorado, but weren’t born here, have a saying, “I got here as fast as I could.” The beauty that brings so many people to Colorado is also what draws people into its danger. As a result, we have more than our share of search-and-rescue missions. I wonder what kind […]

How to Reach out to Family Members
with the Gospel

When I was growing up, my family had an unwritten code of silence. Even though we were professing Christians, we didn’t talk about our faith. Since we never discussed faith, I wondered if my parents had a relationship with Jesus or if they were just good churchgoers. I had fully trusted in Jesus and hoped […]

After God Speaks in Creation,
Who Will Tell the Rest of the Story?

One of the many things that I love about living in Colorado is the beauty that is everywhere, for everyone. As a recreational photographer, it is a canvas of glory to me. Late one summer afternoon I joined some other photographers to go high up in the Rockies to shoot the sunset. After a rugged […]

Mercy in a Manger

One morning last week I was driving to the office, happily listening to Christmas carols. I pulled up to a neighborhood stop sign, slowed down, and did a quick look-pause. Nothing was coming, so I rolled on through. Just as I glided into the intersection, my eyes locked onto the police officer tucked away in […]

”…there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” – Luke 15:10 Most of us have people we love who haven’t trusted Jesus. Maybe we’ve shared Christ with them and invited them to church. However, they are still far away from Christ. Maybe we’ve even languished for years […]

Together Forever: Reflecting on Life and Death

As I write, my friend Sandra Thomas is preparing the home-going service for her husband Danny. He was a man who loved and served God. As the condolences flowed into Facebook, I was struck by the power of one life lived well. Danny was a family man. He was dad to Dandra, Mario, and Bridget, […]

Mercy at the Edge of Eternity

When someone you love is at the edge of eternity and you are unsure if that person knows Jesus, what do you do? I recently heard a wonderful story of three sisters whose brother was dying. They didn’t know where he stood spiritually. Here is their story. My brother and I had always been close. […]

Show Them Life to the Fullest

On the Gulf of Mexico a few years ago, I was at a friend’s condo writing about thriving in life. I looked up from the computer and outside my window I saw a view of blue skies, the bay, and then the gulf. Right in the center was an expansive white bridge that connected the […]
