  A few of my friends are really into the latest electronic gadgets. I imagine you know some people like this as well. Maybe you are even one of these people, which is fine with me. I do find it fascinating when they show me all the things the latest phone, television, computer, or whatever, can do. I even find it downright amazing how much information, or function, can be packed into such a small device. But what I find very interesting is how quickly we lose our sense of amazement at... + read more

I was talking with a parent recently who was frustrated by the frequently negative attitude of her teenager. This teen seemed to be looking at every situation in life from a negative viewpoint, and was complaining about even the smallest inconveniences as if they were major disasters. I shared with this parent that I can still recall a period of my teen years when I had a fairly similar negative attitude.    As a matter of fact, as I gave the issue some further thought,... + read more

  John Newton’s wonderful hymn Amazing Grace is easily the most recognized and most popular hymn among people of many religious backgrounds, and those with no religion at all! Yet do we really understand grace as Newton did?   We sing Amazing Grace, yet we are surprised to learn the shocking difference between grace and love. Love is enthralled with all the good it finds in the beloved. But grace is an acceptance of a person who is bad. It’s the difference... + read more

Our culture has probably always been this way, promising us great benefits if we will only buy this or that product. But, with the tight economy and sales down, it seems the prevalence of such promises is increasing. The big thing now is “Reward Points”. Advertisers tell us, if you use our credit card, or our services, or buy our product, we will give you a reward.    The dictionary defines reward as “something given in response to something done or... + read more

  No, I haven’t seen the movie yet, despite its many Oscars. I’m not sure I will, because of what I’ve heard about the almost unbearable scenes of child torture. Nevertheless, The Fellowship has a keen interest in this story. Why?   Because we are there.   No, not in the movie. But in the mean streets of Mumbai, India. Our Bethany is serving the street children, bringing them hope and life through Jesus. We are in regular communication, and... + read more

I’m one of those people who gets “test anxiety.” I can’t sleep the night before a big test and I can’t eat breakfast the morning of the test. I don’t like tests. My guess is that you don’t like them very much either. Thankfully, most of us over twenty five, or way over twenty five, (I think I remember being twenty five at one point way back in my life) don’t have school-type tests anymore. But, if you stop to think about it, do you still... + read more

  “I’ve never been to a church like this before.” It’s a comment I hear often. No, The Fellowship is not totally unique in these areas. But for some people, given their background in other churches, there are some surprises at The Fellowship. The following are based on actual comments I have heard.   I’ve never been in a church where my kids actually like Sunday School.   The warm caring of dedicated teachers provides a creative,... + read more

Are you concerned about the current economic health of our world? The Bible encourages us to avoid worry and fear. But we should certainly be aware of, and deeply concerned about, how the worst economic decline in over seventy years is hurting people around the world, including us and those dear to us.   I am very thankful that currently I still have a job (at least at the time of this writing I still do). I work in a medical clinic treating job related injuries. Every day, I... + read more

  In this article, I am going to go against one of the cardinal rules of journalism: “write only about what you know about.” A good rule, which makes a lot of sense. What is the point of writing about something you don’t know much about?    But, in these monthly articles, I am not seeking to share any of my supposed “wisdom”. I am trying to share about what the Lord is doing in my life, in the hopes these thoughts may encourage you to... + read more

  He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2   It’s right to treasure the experience of discovering Jesus Christ as “my personal Savior.” But only if we avoid the error of emphasizing that individual experience to the neglect of the whole world. The call to personally follow Jesus is a call to engage with His global kingdom.   The Fellowship has the privilege of... + read more
