THE DAY NATURE TURNED MILD
We were just
at that time of the year, In the
annual change of the atmosphere, When spring
had melted what winter snowed, And the does
gave birth to little deer. I was
driving my truck down the county road, Through
fields growing with what was sowed. When a...

THINGS TOO WONDERFUL - THE STORY OF JOB
One
of the most ancient of stories in any language is the story of Job.  Most
people in Christendom know the story very well.  Job’s wealth was
legendary. It is said that he was the “greatest of all men of the
east.”  However, even before we learn that fact...

FAIR WEATHER FOLLOWERS (PART 1 OF 2)
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 reasons for the changes that w...

THIS SPRING'S BROOD
My Highland cows are an uncommon breed, Excessive in hair and in horn. Content eating either clover or weed, And munching on thistle and thorn. My Highlander cows are quiet cattle, Just rarely they utter a word. Owning life without conflict or battle, Rumin...

THINGS TOO WONDERFUL (PART 2)
In

THE HARLOT
One
would think that the writer of the New Testament book of Hebrews could have
dispensed with the title “harlot” when referring to Rahab. After

THE YELLOW DOG
A
friend of mine stopped over the other day, explaining to me that he really had
no reason for the visit, only that he had the “yellow dog.” I
instantly knew what he meant. He did not have to explain this phrase, although
I am not sure how wide-spread the s...

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.
