One

I’m just one. I find myself thinking that a lot lately because it is very true. I’m just one. One voice. One heart. One body. One writer. I’m just one. And, the good news is that I am one of many! I don’t have to say it all. I don’t have to feel it all.…

I’m sorry, Francis…

I was talking to some young adults a while back, and they were discussing the holiness of God, His majesty, His power, His Supreme Authority. I was soaking it all in, seeing this realization of holiness and the awesomeness of Almighty God, when one of them said, “Francis Chan said: ‘Is this the God that…

About cats and dogs

I had a friend that used to say, “I’m God’s cat.”  He would say it in an air of disappointment, in a voice of defeat, and he made it very clear what he meant.  “It’s like EVERY time I get something good ...God waits until I’m practically holding it in my hands, assured that its…

The elephant in the room

Cancer. That word is ominous, foreboding.  It very literally scares you to the core.  Suddenly that afflicted body part is bigger than life, and you are a little kid in a dark room, looking for the smallest source of light.  It takes your breath away and zaps you of energy.  Suddenly your world that was…
