Stay the course with the Lord

"But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory, which none of the princes of this world knew, for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

6 life lessons from a pretzel

Friends and family are familiar with the fact that I like to use food to explain things (My former roommates are still confused at the relationship between switching yogurt brands and my English classes). But life lessons related to food have taught me some profound truths, even though they may be based on my current eating habits. Recently, I started thinking about some changes that had occured in my life. I started munching on a nearby bag of pretzels when it all came together. I paused, pretzel in hand. Suddenly a list of seven life lessons I had learned throughout ...

Wait on the Lord in the race of life

I have mentioned this before in this space, but I have a deep desire to "finish well" in whatever I do. Last month, I attended a "pre-retirement" seminar sponsored by our state Baptist convention. My retirement is not just around the corner, but this was advertised as an important event for all pastors "over the age of 50."
