Be anxious for nothing

“Be anxious for nothing . . .”  The apostle Paul wrote these words as he was winding up his letter to the church in Philippi (Philippians 4:6).  They are part of a grouping of general exhortations which was Paul’s customary way of ending his letters to churches.  Here in this letter Paul was trying to encourage

Are we showing others the way to Christ?

I don’t know about you, but the older I get the more I find myself looking back to the past with growing fondness.  The world didn’t seem so complicated back then.  Everything seemed much simpler.  TV only had 3 channels and they went off the air for a few hours every day.  There were no

Be well

If you are like me, I’ve heard about all the news and advice on the Corona virus I can tolerate.  While I know that we need to take this disease seriously, I also know that obsessing on it isn’t the answer. Okay, okay, I know that some will chastise me for saying this, but I’ve

Different Directions

Remember the days before GPS when you either had to have a map or put yourself at the mercy of others by asking for directions?  Back in those days you would often find yourself driving in circles all the while hoping to find your destination. In addition to not being very much fun, it often
