Dr. MLK Jr.’s Letter to America

On November 4, 1956 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered a letter that he wrote as if it were from the apostle Paul to the church in America. It is as applicable, if not more, today as it was then. I encourage you, on this Holiday marking the life of a great man, to take the time to read it. Dr. MLK Jr.’s Letter to America

Shootings and Murders and Persecution

I am extremely saddened by the recent shootings at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College. My heartfelt prayers go out to the families of the deceased – I simply cannot imagine the pain and hurt that would come from losing a loved one, especially a child. And I share this today, honestly, without totally understanding how they feel. How could I? However, I truly believe that God’s grace is big enough to help these families through this. I truly believe that God’s grace is big enough to heal the pain. I truly believe that God’s grace is big enough even to help these people to forgive the person who brought this evil and pain into their lives.

Our Culture’s Unfortunate Perspective on “Disabilities”

My wife and I met a woman and her disabled one-year old son this past weekend. He was born without eyes, his ear canals were incomplete, he had a cleft through his lip and into his palate, and perhaps a variety of other disabilities. At only one year old, he has already had numerous surgeries, and many more perhaps are on the horizon. We obviously felt compassion for this little boy, as well as for his mother, but we started to wonder what might God do with such a boy? Our Culture’s Unfortunate Perspective on “Disabilities”
