Culture first, Christ later

I met her my second week in Thailand. She doesn’t speak much English but her smile speaks volumes, making up for what words cannot say. She has a Thai nickname that is easier to remember and so it has been easy for us to become friends. She comes to church every weekend, most Friday nights […]

in love.

in love.

On her second day of work, she had a minor accident and was ten minutes late getting to the office.  But as she took her seat and rebooted her desktop, she  filled me in on that morning’s events.  She didn’t complain, rather she started to pour out how grateful she was for this and that, […]

Over the past week, we have explored many different viewpoints on the dating question.  Specifically, we’ve looked at it through the prism of Adventism.

The Michael in Me

The Michael in Me

Traffic on 1-70W

This is a very disjointed write up but there is a message if you can comprehend it, so please try and connect the dots. This past Thursday I ended up in a car with Junior ( my younger sister) and I have to admit that being a passenger in her car is a lesson in […]
