I have had the honor of solemnizing over 150 weddings during my 35+ years in ministry. Some of those relationships turned out better than others. But, I will never forget one in particular! The prospective groom and bride looked like 'Ken and Barbie.' (if you are too y...

An 80 year old woman bumped into an 80 year old man in their assisted living facility. She smiled and said, 'You look like my 5th husband.' Taken back the older guy replied, 'How many times have you been married?' She winked at him and said, 'Four.' We all have a desir...

Since April I have been working on a series of messages about building healthy, satisfying relationships. Full disclosure....I am not a relationship expert. I have never been particularly skilled in developing healthy relationships. I grew up in a family that had it's...

According to The Progress Paradox:  How life gets better while people feel worse by Gregg Easterbrook, the average westerner lives better than 99.4% of all human beings who have ever lived.  By any measure of affluence – health care, leisure, technology – the average A...

Are you a disciple, a follower of Jesus Christ? That’s a crazy question to ask the members of a church, isn’t it?! Of course, we’re all Christians! We go to church! We believe in God! That’s where Christians go and that’s what they believe, right!?! Well, many of us go...
