A Broader Vision of Manhood

A Broader Vision of Manhood

Every culture has its ideal vision of masculinity.

Turn Over Control to God

Turn Over Control to God How do we do that? How do we turn over the control  of our lives to God as Jesus did, and as Jesus invites us to do? It’s not easy. I sometimes liken it to what trapeze artists do when they have to release their grasp on one bar in

What are We to Make of Jesus Christ?

  What are we to make of Jesus Christ? This is a question which has, in a sense, a frantically comic side. For the real question is not what are we to make of Christ, but what is He to make of us? The picture of a fly sitting deciding what it is going to

Jack Nicklaus II: Listen to Your Children

As parents, we are often living lives filled with distractions, emotional challenges, and professional and personal disruptions. No matter what you face, take every opportunity you are given to listen to your children. My dad did that so well — even when his career was at its peak and he was traveling so much —

Grace for the Mess

For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and His gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one Man, Jesus Christ. — Romans 5:17 NLT The meaning of life. The wasted
