  • COLUMN: Forgiving and forgiveness linked

    Feb. 6 marked the centennial of the birth of our 40th president, Ronald Wilson Reagan. A few years ago I read the then newly released The Reagan Diaries (HarperCollins, 2007), the edited personal daily entries of President Reagan, which he maintained during his eight-year presidency. One of the most interesting entries is the one from March 30, 1981 (the day he was shot by would-be assassin, John Hinckley):

  • COLUMN: Technology changes, message stays the same

    A couple of weekends ago, my wife and I went to my son’s home in Somerset to handle three days of grandparenting responsibilities.
    My son, Brian, and his wife were skiing in West Virginia so Grammy and Granddaddy took care of the children.
    On Saturday, we took the boys to their Upward basketball games. I sat with the minister of youth from their church who, in between bouts of live conversation, kept texting Brian to let him know how well my youngest grandson was doing on the court.

  • COLUMN: What does worship really mean?

    This article appears on a page on which a list of churches in the area is provided with the encouragement to “Worship At The Church Of Your Choice This Week.” I appreciate that the newspaper provides this service to the community, but I wonder how many know what the word “worship” actually means.
    The word ‘worship’ is a difficult word to define. Our English word comes from the Old English, which was originally ‘worthship,’ which means to ascribe worth to something or recognize something as worthy.

  • COLUMN: Following Jesus is costly

    In his recent New York Times best-selling book “Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream” (Multnomah, 2010) author David Platt challenges the water-downed gospel featured in many American churches in our day. He correctly diagnoses many of us when he says that we are “settling for a Christianity that revolves around catering to ourselves when the central message of Christianity is actually about abandoning ourselves” (page 7).
