God… In Everything

When I say, “God is in it all” or “God is in everything,” please don’t take me to be a pantheist. I do not think everything is God. However, I do believe God is in everything. I picture our world as a huge sponge filled with the presence of God. Nevertheless, that conviction can be troubling. Here is an example.

Sensitivity

ShepherdCalls_WPSeventy plus years ago, Dr. Ruth Westheimer was a ten year old girl on a Kindertransport, a train that carried Jewish children to safety from Nazi Germany. She was allowed to take only one toy with her as she fled Frankfurt. She took a favorite doll. On the train she met a younger child, who was understandably crying. Painfully Ruth gave the young girl her doll. “She needed it more

The Charcoal Fire

by Pastor Steve Ellison

A couple of weeks ago, I had a phone conversation with an old friend whom I had not heard from in about 10 years. He had engaged in a time of repentance and felt like God had forgiven him. However, he was struggling with forgiving himself. This is a perplexing problem for almost every Christian.

Family

It was my birthday, a big one. My wife decided I needed a birthday party. Perhaps she assumed I would not be available for many more. Lovingly, she set the wheels in motion. At first, she planned it to be a surprise; but we have difficulty keeping secrets from each other, and soon the “cat was out of the bag.”
