Fifty Two

Talk to People I often say to people, “Tell me about someone new you have met in the last week. What is their name and tell me something interesting you learned about them?” Now, why would I ask that? There is actually a very simple reason why: I am curious―very curious―to know how they will answer. Let me ask you, “Are you stepping out of your comfort zone and into God’s comfort zone by saying hello...

Christian Celebrities

Why did I watch this video? I should have known better. I knew before clicking on it that it would probably become a newsletter! Just knew it. So, I clicked on it anyway. And now, for your benefit, you get to click on it as well! Five minutes. That’s it. Five simple minutes. See if you can pick out any false teachings in this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4J5dhOFPlM0 Christian Prayer? When I see people praying, many...

To Fear or Not to Fear: That is the Question

What a time to be alive! It seems like we can’t listen to the news without something terrible being pushed in our faces. It has been that way for a very long time now. Whether it’s 9/11, the bird flu, swine flu, terrorists around every corner, see something say something, the Wuhan virus, or murder hornets, there is bad news everywhere! And now, people want to defund the police right before the murder hornets arrive!!...

Feet

I like running and walking in these things called Vibram Five Fingers. They are basically gloves for your feet. I wear them as I run in sand because they are much easier on these old, tired basketball knees. They are the best way to run in sand, other than being barefoot. I also like to wear them when I’m walking in the big parking lot at the park I go to. As I walk, I...

“You Are Very Comfortable Around Blacks”

Life is very interesting to live. There are ups and downs, there are highs and lows, and there are certain things in life that will just bring you joy―lots of joy. I received this email the other day, and it was like joy personified in my inbox! I didn't need a response to an unsubscribe notice, but since we are here, please allow me to rebutt. I am saved. My savior is Jesus Christ, not...

I’m Hatin’ It!

While walking at the park today, I ran into a mom and her two kids who were really nice and friendly to me. Kind of weird. Then, the other day, a waiter was super kind. Exemplary service. I am sure he just wanted a good tip. And, today, a guy in my neighborhood, who has a different skin tone than I have, actually waved at me while I was parking my car. But, I am...

Headed Somewhere for Eternity

     I saw this picture the other day and found it really fascinating. https://www.histomania.org/photo/24789/long_beach_california_1910 They say it is from Long Beach, CA back in 1910! What do you notice as you see this picture? I really like the building with the white columns, porches, and verandas. That is some beautiful architecture there. The Orange Cider for 5 cents looks tasty! I might even buy one of those 5-cent cigars, and I don’t even smoke! The St....

Honoring and Glorifying the Lord

I received an email a few weeks ago from Chris. Now, I came to know Chris and his family from an old church I used to attend. What a family! The David family loves Jesus, and they love Jesus enough to tell the lost all about Him! They love sharing their faith. They love soul winning. And the parents have trained up their three boys to live their lives that way. Chris was ordering more...

They Really Are at Their Breaking Point!

What a time to be alive! Things are getting pretty exciting down here. I hope you are enjoying the journey and making a big, big difference for Jesus Christ! We have cautioned and warned you numerous times about getting your kids out of government-run schools. These are not the same kinds of schools that we attended when we were young. I could never in good conscience recommend that anyone send a child of any grade...

What a Weekend

Now and then, we all need some getaway time. We need a break from the hustle and bustle of life and to recharge our batteries a bit. I had that opportunity recently. It was actually over a weekend when I was out of town speaking at a men’s church retreat up in the Georgia Mountains. Speaking opportunities like that are times when you are supposed to be a blessing to the audience. If the event...
