Wild Eyes and Red Hair

Two years ago this month, on July 20, 2012, James Eagan Holmes walked into a movie theater in Aurora, CO and shot multiple rounds of ammunition off, killing 12 people and injuring 70. The victims were simply trying to enjoy a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises. It wasRead More »

Family Reunion and Thomas Jefferson

Recently, I drove home to Atlanta, from Hampton, VA where my wife’s side of the family held a reunion. I love my in-laws. Thirty-three years ago I married into this great, godly clan. They are women and men of faith, many of whom are involved in significant ministry. By now,Read More »

A friend of mine recently bought a Tesla electric car. Custom-made for each buyer, the car is elegant and  impressive on every level. As we sat at lunch, my friend took out his phone, opened an app and turned the car’s air conditioning on, so we could enter a coolRead More »

You’re Gonna Make Me Cry!

Many people, who are otherwise biblically illiterate, know the shortest verse in the bible: Jesus wept (John 11:35). I am glad that Jesus, in His earthly ministry, showed His emotions. It gives me freedom to show mine. I have been a weeper since my teen years and have never feltRead More »

Promise Kept to a Tall Guy

I have a friend who is becoming increasingly dear to me. We chat by text and phone, but not nearly as much as we’d like. Both of us are insanely busy and we have wives and lives that require time. After he told me, again, how much he enjoyed myRead More »
