We are precariously close to the top of the tower of human creativity.
Today's technology allows us a more dramatic view than ever before. But if we look down, it's easy to see the cracks in the foundations that have been laid.
It's not difficult to find the vulnerability in a fortress of human thought.

A nearby botanical garden has been a refuge for quiet walks and prayer for many years.
Recently, though, it is going through an "upgrade". Intrusive signs have been positioned at eye level, providing dubious information about how the plants evolved.
Scented shrubs have been removed to make space for a designated...

Knowledge is increasing exponentially, and so are end times news stories.
So much so, we can find ourselves caught up in a "watch" that has more to do with thoughts and opinions than it does with truth.
The coming revelation of Jesus Christ is beyond the threshold of human knowledge and imagination. We are invit...

I have been monitoring the final rose of the season in an abandoned garden that I pass on seaside walks.
Not just a regular rose, but an antique, soft golden rose, with a scent so rarefied, walking away from it is like letting go of a piece of eternity.
As I reached for it on yesterday's walk, the branch s...

I stumbled both in darkness and in the deception of artificial light during times of wavering faith in my life.
Early on, I was caught up in the ways of the secular world through music and materialism. And my first career, which mixed business and alcohol, left me intoxicated.
Church gave me a headache...

The concept of hope has been trampled on throughout the ages, and squeezed into the footprints of each passing generation.
It's easy to understand why some have lost sight of it. But for followers of Jesus, hope is not a concept. It is a spring of living water flowing deep inside of us. As it was in the days of N...

While the world seeks contrived "peace", a very different kind of movement is taking place amongst followers of Jesus.
Many have had an "awakening". A kind of knock on the door that reverberates with heavenly peace, and holiness.
This gentle call has become the heartbeat of some who hear it, filling them with a...

I went through a season of unforgiveness some years ago that involved closing the door on friends and family, including my mother.
When she passed away quite suddenly one autumn, I wasn't there to say goodbye.
The following spring, I planted lily bulbs. My mother's name was Lily. From below ground, they...
