The caller said, “Pastor, can you visit my father? He is in hospice, and has requested that a minister stop by to see him.” As soon as possible, I went to his room, not knowing anything about his spiritual condition. Carl (not his real name) seemed anxious to see me an...

Mary loved Texas! And as a nationally known author, that love permeated her literature. Stirred by her writings, many people from the United States sold their homes and moved to Texas, “a splendid country – an enchanting spot.” Indeed, who would not be enticed to move...

Waking to a new day, the urge to do something really rebellious came to mind. I didn’t want to go to jail or lose my license to preach. I just wanted to be a little bit defiant.

Is it Breaking News or BROKEN NEWS? What has happened to the news? As kids, we loved the evening newspaper, and enjoyed reading the sports, weather, and news. In college, I would buy a copy of the vaunted New Your Times, just to see “all the news that’s fit to print.”...
