But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Popular singles were available on a record for $0.99. I would save my allowance and...

North Carolina winters are often filled with the delightful hope of snow succumbing to the disappointing reality called freezing rain. It leaves the roads dangerously slick and it coats every surface with a layer of ice, especially trees. As the sunlight shines through the ice laden branches, the...

Years ago, I watched as my daughter careened down the hill on her bike, going too fast and not stable enough to remain upright. As she crashed to the ground I felt the urge to look away. Bare skin meeting pavement is always painful—especially when you’re six years old. Tears welled as...

In 1987, while giving a speech in West Germany, Ronald Reagan uttered his now famous words, “Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” It became a rallying cry for unity, freedom, and peace.

Today, in the church there are similar calls to tear down walls and...

As we sit on the beach, I watch my youngest as she hunts for shells. She races up to me, sharing her finds. Over and over she brings them to me, delighting in each of them as treasure:

“Mom, isn’t that orange color beautiful?”

“Look at the curves of this one, aren’t they pretty?
