THE NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH
Today’s scripture involves John’s vision of the New Heavens and the New
Earth. In this portion of the book of Revelation, John specifically begins to
tell us about the city of New Jerusalem. Before we begin with what John writes,
I want to first manage our ...

I’M GOING FISHING
In the Gospel of
John, the Apostle Peter said something that I have wondered about from time to
time. When he spoke the words, it was after the resurrection of Jesus, and even after Jesus had appeared to
the disciples. Peter was together with some others wh...

MARY OF MAGDALA
The first
person to see Jesus alive on the resurrection morning was Mary of Magdala. Very early in the morning, even before it was light (John 20:1), she, along with at least three other women, picked their way through the
darkness to go to the tomb, where ...

MULTITUDE MENTALITY
(Fair Weather Followers) It is astonishing how a period of one week can completely change a person’s opinion about something. Changing situations can, of course, change opinions. However, it is also true that we are a capricious people. Many times the reaso...

EATING WITH SINNERS
One of the aspects about the life of Jesus which sometimes goes unnoticed, is that the people who were mostly attracted to his teachings were not the religious people of his day. Rather, those who were predominantly drawn to the teachings of Jesus were thos...

SOJOURNERS – THE LIFE OF ABRAHAM
Abraham Lifts His
Eyes Many years ago, in the days when my
family and I were preparing for a move to Venezuela from our home in Wisconsin,
I identified with Abraham more than any other Bible character.   Like Abraham and his family, that time in our
lives w...

A SHEEP IN THE HAND IS WORTH...EVERYTHING
"They will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of
My hand." ******************************************** There are
several metaphors in the Bible that God uses for his people. Each of these is
intended to illustrate and accentuate a particular a...

THE DOUBTERS
Jesus had risen from the dead! Mary Magdalene even saw him alive at the tomb and
reported this news to the disciples. Also, the other women who had gone with
Mary told the disciples that they saw the empty tomb and that angels had
appeared to them, telling ...

I DIED ALONG SIDE OF JESUS
I don’t have
a name that you would recognize, but it was a name many people in Jerusalem
once knew. My name was one that they hated. I was a robber, but not just a
typical thief. My partner and I became notorious for the terror that we exacted
on the people...

BROKEN AND POURED OUT
Not many
days before he was to be crucified, Jesus was a guest in a home in the village
of Bethany, a place not far from Jerusalem. The house was that of one Simon, a
man who had been a leper but must have been healed some time before, presumably
by Jesus. ...

THE GOOD DEED BALANCE SCALE
There are
some places in the Bible where I wish that the writers would have added a couple
of footnotes. Today’s scripture reading is one of those instances. In this
passage, some people had come to Jesus, wanting him to comment about some
“Galileans whose ...

WITHSTANDING THE WINDS OF TEMPTATIONS
We sometimes
tend to think of a person who is a priest as one who lives a somewhat
cloistered life, often largely secluded in monasteries or rectories and apart
from the daily living situation of most people. Of course, this is not always
the case, but I wo...

Introduction
Another transition has come to our lives. For the past three years my wife and I have been mostly living in New Zealand and working in the Pacific Islands. Before that, we lived for about fifteen years in Venezuela and Guatemala with our four sons. While living in these places I worked throughout most of Central and South America. Our work has been one of serving the Christian churches by establishing pastoral and leadership training centers, which is a big need throughout the world. Now, we are about to move back to our small farm in Northern Wisconsin. We are not yet sure what we will be doing, but all that we know is that God has something in mind for us.
