Trip to Seychelles: Update 2

Posted on July 5th, 2012

Thursday, July 5 After 15 hours to Dubai, a 13 hour layover, and a 5 hour flight to Seychelles, we finally arrived yesterday afternoon. Crossing an international time zone, we also lost half a day, and we’re nearly halfway around the world at an 11 hour difference. It’s a different kind of experience spending the […]

Trip to Seychelles: Update 1

Posted on July 3rd, 2012

Dear loved ones (and church family), After a 15 hour trip that took us almost directly over the North Pole and through Russia and Iran (on an Arab Emirates flight), we made it safely across to Dubai, where we have a 13 hour layover. We’re staying a night in an airport hotel before we catch […]

Q and A With Robert Turner

Posted on June 30th, 2012

  Where do we get the authority to say when a New Testament example is binding and when it is not? P.T. Reply: We have no authority to bind commands or examples — God does that. We just try to understand and follow the teachings of God’s word, accepting or rejecting on the basis of […]

Before the Firing Squad

Posted on April 8th, 2012

The famous Russian novelist, Fyodor Dostoevsky, was found guilty of possessing politically subversive material.  He was summoned to hear his sentence on December 22, 1849: he was condemned to death before a firing squad. The sentence was to be swiftly carried out.  Dostoevsky and his friends were told they only had minutes to live.  They […]

Worship God!

Posted on February 5th, 2012

A husband and wife were on the way home from worship one Sunday morning.  As they rode along, the wife asked her husband, “Did you see that woman in the front row showing off her Liz Claiborne suit?” He said, “No.” Well, “Did you see that man on our left–the one wearing that gaudy sport […]

Welcoming Visitors: Raising Our Awareness

Posted on January 16th, 2012

Some visiting Christians who were looking for a church home decided not to identify with a church I formerly worked with because they did not find the group as “friendly” as other area churches. My initial reaction was a defensive one: that they completely and unfairly misdiagnosed us; that I myself tried to warmly welcome […]

God and Country

Posted on January 9th, 2012

I feel very blessed to have been born both in this place and in this time. I love my country (and my state even more, but that’s another thought) and am proud to sing our national anthem and pledge my allegiance to the United States of America. And while I am not widely traveled, I have enough experience […]

Evangelism and Religious Capital

Posted on January 5th, 2012

As I write this, I am in the middle of an engaging new book by social historian Rodney Stark, The Triumph of Christianity. A compendium of the most significant findings in many of his earlier works, this masterpiece summarizes “how the Jesus movement became the world’s largest religion.” There are treasures of priceless information on […]

No Christmas Service?

Posted on December 25th, 2011

It comes as a shock to some people that we do not have a special service memorializing the birth of Christ, especially when so many religious groups advertise pageants, plays, and concerts celebrating “Christmas.” People tell us that Jesus Christ is “the reason for the season.” Our refusal to jump on the bandwagon is not […]
