  • The joy of being a sinner

    Every once in a while, like 20 or 50 times a day, I wonder if I’ll ever get better.
    I wonder if my faith will ever grow deeper or stronger, if I’ll ever have more passion for God, more desire for holiness.
    Sometimes I think I must surely be the sorriest excuse for a Christian in the history of Christendom.

  • Taking care of the future

    Recently my daughter and I went to a Build-A-Bear workshop at the Dry Ridge Fire Department. This event benefitted Shriner’s Hospital in Cincinnati and Shriner’s Hospital in Lexington.
     I explained to my daughter that she was going to make bears for sick children in the hospital.
    Shriner’s Hospital has always been dear to me for several reasons. The hospital gives care to children without regard to race, color, creed, disability, national origin or ability of a patient or family to pay. They care for them because they need it.
