Faith: How did life get so crazy?
How did life get so crazy? The days seem shorter and the demands greater. There always seem to be deadlines looming or past due, people with wants, family members with needs. All these time-saving, productivity-increasing devices seem to eat up more time than they save. How do we...

Faith: Where did you see God today?
With the State Fair quickly approaching, I recalled one of my experiences that I have shared with my congregations. A few years back when my family and I were walking through the multitudes of people at the Great Minnesota Get-together, my brother spotted one of the players for the...

Faith: Land of the free and home of the brave
Among our citizenship, little is known about the War of 1812, even though from its battlements we receive our beloved national anthem. History records that several decades passed before our nation once again became embroiled in conflict with England. And it was during the British...

Faith: What I learned from 30 days without food
I find health and nutrition to be fascinating. I enjoy reading about it, talking about it and experimenting with it. This past April I completed a 30-day water fast, where I ate no food and drank only water and took a few supplements for 30 days. I know, it's a bit nuts. So why did...

Faith: What's the hang-up?
Two brilliant people had the opportunity to connect. One is the novelist, the other a theologian. As they put their minds together, the novelist challenged the theologian with questions that many people have asked. "Do you really believe the Bible's true? Do you really believe a baby...

Grandparents, stay in the game
When I was asked to write a book to grandparents (Faith Begins At Home Grandparents) I wasn't sure where to begin, as I'm not a grandparent, so I decided to survey over 200 grandparents, where I asked them one simple question: "What prevents you from being a spiritual influence in...

Billy Graham had struggles too
Have you had your struggles lately? Maybe it's happening right now, and you feel like you're the only one that's struggling. Why is everyone else doing OK? Last week a spiritual giant in our time, the Rev. Billy Graham, at age 99, finished his calling here on earth. God has an appointed...

Faith: Grace for today
Have you ever felt stuck? I used to be the kind of person who was always looking ahead. I would plan and prepare, dream and set goals. I lived much of my life focused on the future, anticipating what was to come. I didn't have time to dwell on the past because I was too busy looking...

Faith: The meaning of Christmas
I never get tired of the Christmas story. The idea that the almighty infinite God, the creator of the universe, became a baby - a crying, smelly, helpless baby - is so unlike anything we could have ever imagined on our own. If you've ever read the Old Testament, you'll realize how...
