I’m going to read you some names from the Bible.
Tell me if they sound familiar:
Pontus Pilate, King Nebuchadnezzar; King Herod; King Ahab, Queen Jezebel, Pharaoh.
All familiar, right?
What do they have in common?

The word Reconciliation is a tough one, isn’t it?
It comes with it a whole trunkful of baggage.

I have some good friends — I haven’t seen them in quite a while — but they’re some of the best people I know.
I met them way back when I was about 22 years old.

Do you know what I...

Most of us have heard, read or studied this very popular Bible verse about Jesus Feeding the 5,000 or Jesus Feeding the Multitudes.

I love to go for walks.
Whether it’s out in the woods or even on the city streets, I get so lost in my mind — in a good way — that I can walk miles and miles sometimes.
