Two Places…

Humans have inhabited two places: Eden and after Eden. Just a handful of millennia ago a man and a woman knew no shame, hurt, fear. They named animals, marveled at flowers and fruit, found newness at every turn. Even walked with God. “The man…

Timeless…

  How easily, these days, we discard anything from the past. We rewrite it to suit what we want others to believe. We sequester what doesn’t fit our comfort. We call outdated that which is timeless. We do it with people, history, science –…

Perfect Timing…

Does waiting drive you crazy? Children are counting down days til Christmas. Adults count days til the next big game, movie sequel, retirement – or you fill in the blank with your ‘can’t wait’ list. At the birth of Jesus the world had been…

     Our good friend and pastor in California recalled the following story when his oldest daughter was six… His wife couldn’t pick her up from school and had asked Larry to get her. Realizing he was running late he got over to the school…

Aprons…
