Good Thinking: Three Things for Certain!

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“…in this world nothing is certain but death and taxes!” So wrote Benjamin Franklin in 1789.

TAXES are a sure thing! Since the beginning of civilization, people have paid taxes. Taxes are seen as a burden. We try every tactic to avoid paying taxes. We hate to pay taxes. We are prosecuted if we do not pay our taxes! Yet, taxes are the price we pay

Good Thinking: Seven Words of Jesus

by Dr. Don Kuehle   

Jesus and his disciples have come to Jerusalem for Passover. For three years, Jesus has tried to teach them, by his words and example, what it means to live fully in God’s Kingdom. Thursday finds Jesus and friends gathered in an upper room to share the bread and wine; the words Jesus uses were strange to them, familiar to us. On Friday, Jesus is scourged and

Good Thinking: Season of Suffering

by Dr. Don Kuehle

The Season-of-Lent is a Season-of-Suffering! None of us can go through life without some suffering; it’s been that way ever since Adam and Eve. Before the fall, Adam and Eve knew nothing of pain, of failure, of suffering, of death. After the fall, they experienced all these things — and more. Whenever sin separated Adam and Eve from God, Eve experienced pain in giving birth; Adam

Good Thinking: Ruth’s Journey

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul;

What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss

To bear the dreadful cross for my soul, for my soul?”

The most beautiful “love story” in the Bible is found the Book of Ruth!

Due to a famine in Israel, Elimelech and his wife Naomi, along with their two sons Mahlon and Chilion,

Good Thinking: Samuel and a Journey of Prayer

by Dr. Don Kuehle 

Samuel was an Old Testament prophet, priest, and judge. Samuel’s life from birth to death was a “journey-of-prayer.” Before he was born, his mother Hannah prayed for a son. God heard and answered her prayer. Samuel came into this world; his name meant “name of God.” In her joy, Hannah dedicated her son to God; and gave him into the hands of Eli, the high priest,

Good Thinking: Abraham, Journey of Faith

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“O Lord, I’m on my journey; O Lord, I’m on my journey;

O Lord, I’m on my journey; On my journey home!”

Life is one looong journey from Birth to Death. Life, for our sakes, is made up of shorter “journeys”; Lent is one of those shorter “journeys” that we take each year to deepen our spiritual life and to bring us closer to where God

Good Thinking: Fat Tuesday, Ash Wednesday

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Ash Wednesday is Feb. 18. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. “Lent” comes from the Anglo-Saxon word “lencten” and the German word “lenz,” and refers to the springtime of the year when the days begin to “lengthen.”

Lent, for the Christian community, is that 40-day season (not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter. Originally, the faithful were required to fast and pray

Good Thinking: Imago Dei

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Ever wondered how everything began? How did the solar system begin? Why is Earth the only planet capable of sustaining life? Why are people afraid of snakes? Why do women have so much pain in child-birth? How did sin & evil & death originate? We humans have tried to answer these questions for centuries. Our answers come, however, out of an extremely limited lifespan; therefore, our

Good Thinking: In Bleak Mid-Winter

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“In the bleak mid-winter frosty wind made moan;

Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone.” — Christina Rossetti

Winter is a tough time! Temperatures plunge. Thermometers range from 32 to 0 degrees. The wind-chill freezes us to the bone. The good earth is frozen hard as concrete. Water turns to ice. The sun hides its face. Clouds cover the sky. Our days are short.
