  • It's not often we take a road trip for over a week, but that's exactly what my wife Kathy & I did this past month. Aside from the engine on our beloved aging Toyota van deciding to "retire" on our ride home... we both felt this was a very good journey together.

  • Ever ponder why it can be so hard to make changes in your life that you know you need to make?  A struggle we desperately want to pull away from, but just fall right back into?  Sort of like driving on a bumpy, bad road trying to get on some good pavement and before you know it, you’re right back in the ruts again. Just like gravity is invisible, the Bible shares there are invisible forces that affect you and me.

  • Yes, this is a “crumby story” in both a symbolic and a literal way, and one that relates to the Easter season we are in.

  • Our dreams of a 2nd Super Bowl came close, but not this time around for our Seahawks. As a game of both strategy & strength it was very competitive… and like most any game… filled great moments and some great mistakes. Good fortune & not so good fortune. Some of the risks played out well and others didn’t. That game could have easily went either way. Both teams should be humbled by how close it was.

  • "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word."  Not only was it an Elton John song title from the 1970's... it's a reality for the present.

  • Jesus said, 'Greater things of these you shall do...' Become a peace builder, a bridge builder, not a destroyer, and the way you do that is through friendships and relationships, and through authentic character. - Ravi Zacharias

  • After We Cope, Can We Find Hope?
    Many of us are still grappling with the terrorist shooting in Ottawa yesterday at the Parliament Bldg; it does shake you to the realities of the world we live in. It was a situation that could have been much worse. It is not farfetched to conclude there are more treacherous

  • Just days ago we learned that actor comedian Robins Williams, passed away, apparently by his own hand. We would have never guessed the life of such a successful, gifted talent would end this way. It’s a shocking thing to hear.

  • It’s not a great revelation that the more complicated our lives become, the more lost we get in it. My garage is complicated, although it doesn’t really need to be. I have many different household items sorted into various sized boxes… somewhat organized, which is great

  • While this moment in time seems a relatively good season for my family, I also see many others within the sphere of my life in a season of struggle with difficult challenges. My heart sinks when people suffer with a broken relationship, life threatening illness, or the loss of a loved one.

  • Local Hero #7 - Nahum Ip

    He is my dad, and a paramedic. That already is kind of "behind the scenes" because no one really notices the paramedics, but the police and firefighters tend to get noticed more. While everyone is looking at the firefighters/police (not to put them down) paramedics are doing quite a bit more work and save lives on a daily basis. He has told us many stories of his job, and while he is with casualties, he uses that opportunity to tell them about Jesus. Throughout his work he has brought many people to Christ just by praying with them at the hospital and continuing to pray for them at home. He not only saves their earthly life, but aids in their spiritual life. Read More
