Chipping Away

"Much closer attention"
“We must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.” ( Hebrews 2:1 ) A Christian, just like anyone else, can become distracted, drowsy, even bored. Sad to say, we can even slip into these ruts when it comes to ou...

Of Oboes and Bagpipes
He is born, the holy Child; Play the oboe and bagpipes merrily! So says the traditional French Christmas Carol, and so we will sing (with gusto) this Christmas morning – although accompanied by a piano, rather than an oboe or bagpipes! I don’t think we hav...

Celebrate Well!
The craze of ‘the holiday season’ is nearly upon us. And I must confess that, as a child of American culture, I really do prize it as ‘the most wonderful time of the year’! The unique traditions, the broccoli casserole, the time with family, the carols an...

Rain, Rain Go Away?
This past Sunday evening, I looked at the weather app on my phone and, after clouds on Monday, it showed eight consecutive days of rain! And when the little weather icons on a phone app look so depressing, how much more might the actual weather?! And so, ...

"The race that is set before us"
“Let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus” ( Hebrews 12:1-2 ). Every day, of course, is ‘the first day of the rest of your life.’...
