By Dr. Jim Denison “We don’t see them as Democrats. They’re the Mitchells. We know they are good people who live next door. We love them.” In a country where 93 percent of us say civility is a problem, this story in the Wall Street Journal is welcome news.

With all the things going on in this world this message is all the more important – especially to all who have declined the invitation to be *saved*.  Jesus Christ stands at our door, knocking, waiting for us to invite Him in but too many are too busy doing other things to hear the knock. I remind folks to think […]

Do not walk in the way of evil. Avoid it, do not travel on it. —Proverbs 4:14-15 My kids enjoy rollerblading. My 13-year-old son likes jumps, rails, and anything else he can do tricks on. But my daughters like long excursions on smooth paths. Straight-line blading has its hazards too, my daughter Julie explained to me. She said that when […]

on October 21, 2020, 9:08 AM / in Religion

By Dr. Jim Denison “There are three things I’ve learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.” So declares Linus in It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Today, let’s discuss all three. We’ll begin with the last. As Maggie Maloney observes in Country Living, “No autumn is complete without the most sacred of traditions,” which she identifies as viewing the classic Peanuts […]

Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you!  Psalm 63:3 nlt On a recent airline flight the landing was a little rough, jostling us left and right down the runway.

Learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow. —Isaiah 1:17 After reading Isaiah 1, I thought of this riddle: What is heavy for God when it’s empty for me?
