Jesus knows what it means to be human

The irony of seeking the divine
Of all the temptations with which we wrestle, the most foundational is our desire to supplant God. It was the enticement the serpent gave to Adam and Eve, that eating the forbidden fruit would give them godlike insight into good and evil. Their experience proved true. However, even...

Leaving an anonymous impact
Do you like mysteries? If so, you should relish 2 Corinthians 8:18. The Apostle Paul, writing to the church at Corinth, informed them that Titus would be coming to them with "the brother who is praised by all the churches for his service to the gospel." No other identification of...

Picking the perfect epitaph
Epitaphs, those catchy statements we often see on gravestones, can provide great insights into the life of the dearly departed. Sometimes they play on the person's name. "Here lies Johnny Yeast; pardon me for not rising." Occasionally, there is a stab at poetry. "Here lies the body...

Church ladies, take a bow
On Aug. 21, 1883, a tornado roared into the small town of Rochester, Minnesota causing major damage. Because there were no hospitals, the wounded were taken to doctors' offices. Motels, dance halls, and other public buildings were turned into makeshift care centers. The situation...

Truth can be stranger than fiction
Karkakonias, an Ojibwe chief in the mid-1800s, was taken to Washington, D.C. to see firsthand the advanced society and military power the United States had achieved at the time. When he returned home, his tribe was excited to hear all about his experiences, but the old chief remained...

Shaking the sleep out of sermons
Last week, I fell asleep at my computer while working on a sermon. When I woke up, the screen had a long line of "Ks" across it because my finger was still pressing down on the key. A quick edit and the problem was corrected, but I remained concerned about the sermon. After all, if...

Splitting hairs in speed debate
You may never have heard of him, but Andy Green is the fastest man on earth. On Oct. 15, 1997, he broke the land speed record at 763.035 mph. Hearing this, I was amazed. Imagine a human being propelling himself along the ground at supersonic speed. But then I discovered Mr. Green...

Finishing the race is a victory
D.H. Groberg's poem, "The Race," depicts a foot race amongst boys. As the contest begins, one contestant surges to the front, leading the field until he trips and falls. Encouraged by his father's shouts, he gets up with renewed effort to catch the group, who by now has passed him....

A trip down memory lane
Memories need very little influence to become active. I recently saw a man riding a bicycle down the street, and my mind immediately transported me back to a childhood event. That is the way memories work — you are going through life, minding your own business, and suddenly...
