Your close friend is passing through an overwhelming trial. What do you write on the card? You’re standing in line at the wake. What are you going to say? In times like these, we can count on “the comfort of the scriptures,” Romans 15:4. God’s Word has divine power to touch the deepest chords of the human heart in ways that our mere human sentiments cannot begin to match. There are literally hundreds of verses that bring strong comfort. Here’s a small... + read more

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” Hebrews 12:1 The word “perseverance” in this passage means to “abide under”, as in a donkey abiding under a heavy load. This implies the race God has called each of us to run is a long distance course, not a short distance sprint. It also implies... + read more

Amy Carmichael - A Life Abandoned To God, by Sam Wellman, is a biography found in The Fellowship library. It weaves Amy's own words, poetry and humor into the amazing story of Amy's life. She championed the cause of mill girls in 19th century Ireland. Amy took this ministry with her to Japan, where she continued to focus on mill girls. Most of her 86 years were spent in India. Dohnavur Fellowship housed thousands of orphans. Even with limited mobility during the last two decades of her... + read more

This Family Postman finds both me and Patty sort of “crunched” by the deadline.  Patty is preparing for a road trip and I am in the midst of a significant business decision, a week filled with Board meetings, interviews, etc.!  However, in a lot of ways, this is the “normal” Christian life in southeastern Massachusetts in 2016.    Patty and I have taken great comfort from Acts 17:26 which says God has ordained the exact time and place you should... + read more

The Lord God is on mission. He is at work to rescue people out of sin and darkness. That’s why He entered this world in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus identified his mission when he said he came “to seek and to save that which is lost.” (Luke 19:10). That’s the same reason the Lord sends his church into the world. He has invited us to join him in his mission. Christians need to make a wrenching paradigm shift in their thinking. Centuries of tradition have taught us... + read more

Last month, I began a series of articles based on the Biblical teaching that living the Christian life is analogous to running a race. The first teaching focused on accepting the race that God lays out for each of us, and not getting caught up in comparing our race to others, wishing we were running a different race. This month’s teaching focuses on the responsibility each of us has to be adequately prepared for our race. As I mentioned before, I am not a good runner, and I don’t... + read more

Reflections on the Life and Ministry of David Brainerd That lengthy title, offered by John Piper, is a summary of the impact of David Brainerd. The 19th century missionary would have been forgotten, but, America's first great philosopher and theologian, Jonathan Edwards, took Brainerd’s diary and journal and organized it. That outcome was a book that dramatically impacted the course of Global Outreach. It inspired William Carey, John Wesley, Henry Martyn, David Livingston, Andrew... + read more

A Way of Life We just finished our 6-week ABF. Six couples focused on Dr. Kevin Leman’s excellent book Sheet Music.  Patty and I, as always, were blessed as much, if not more, than the other participants.  The transparency and community were affirming, encouraging, and transforming.   The #1 truth that we took away from our time together was Dr. Leman’s comment that in order for a marriage to be transformed in the area of physical intimacy; variety, initiative... + read more

I was born into a church connected family, but my religious upbringing ended with my mother’s death when I was thirteen. I lost my faith in God, and everything else. I went through my teen years as a bitter, resentful young man. I looked for something to fill the hole I felt in my soul. At fifteen, I found something that made me feel alive, and I thought, made me happy – alcohol. Through my twenties, thirties, and forties, I only did what I wanted to do. I was unable to enter... + read more
