The Blessing of Marriage

The Daniells family circus pulled back into town last night from a twelve-day road trip to a family reunion centered around my Grandmother’s 90th birthday in Long Beach, California. Altogether, we spent roughly forty hours in “Brian” (our affectionately named Ford Expedition that used to belong to the Milliner family), logging more than 2500 road miles. […]

Redeeming Cinema

“Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” That was Nathanael’s disgruntled response when he heard where Jesus grew up. I think a lot of Christians may have a similar reaction to the announcement of our summer sermon series, Redeeming Cinema. “Can anything good come out of Hollywood?” I say that’s a fair question, and I hope this series will help […]

American Ambassadors

Set aside any political misgivings you may have and imagine that President Trump has received your name from a friend of a friend. He likes that you’re not a politician and thinks that you’d make an adequate representative of the U.S. to one of the 195 countries in existence. So he appoints you Ambassador to […]

Sing For Your Joy

As a child, I had a huge admiration for music, particularly singing. My parents could tell you I took singing in the shower to a new level, especially when it involved me screaming out the lyrics to the Back Street Boys smash hit “I Want it That Way.” (Laugh all you want, it’s still one of […]

God’s Good Hard Work

Last week I urged you to join me in the hard work of prayer to ask God to do his work at the Men’s Retreat. Early this morning I was pondering what words I should use to tell you what happened, and in my Scripture reading for today God said to me, “Here, use these words.” “Come, […]
