Alpine Shallows

Another stunning painting by Samara’s husband, Taylor Lynde is available for purchase: Alpine Shallows–Edith Lake I can’t believe he allows a certain number of his paintings to go each month via online auctions rather than in galleries! But he truly wants everyone to be blessed by great art. Now do you see why I check his offerings all the time? …

Email “10 Commandments”

Molly posted a great blog over at the Peacemakers Route 5:9: Ten Commandments for Email Communications (Oh–and by the way–you can blame the original author, Tim Voorhees, for the reason Peacemaking Women and this blog even exist. Way back a zillion years ago, he was the one who made it possible for me to pursue training as a Christian conciliator …

Suffering is a Normal Part of Christianity

I’m reading old blog posts trying to find some citations and examples. (Man! Am I a SINNER or WHAT? Nothing like reading old posts to remind me of THAT. Good thing God is SO forgiving!)

Sermon Tapes in the U.K.?

(For years I had felt guilty having so many Bibles when I knew that Christians–and especially PASTORS–around the world didn’t have any Bibles. But I didn’t know where to send them. Then I found CRI and boxed ’em up …

Loving Walmart.com Photo Lab!!

I am not usually a fan of Walmart. It’s not a big social-action issue for me or anything. It’s more that our local Walmart is dirty, overly-crowded, poorly lit, and staffed by surly people who seem to simultaneously hate AND know nothing about their jobs. HOWEVER, I am a TRUE CONVERT to the online Walmart.com photolab. My mom had asked …

Baseball & Forgiveness (HT: Fred Barthel)

There’s a fun read over at the Peacemaker Ministries blog: Baseball and Forgiveness Even if you’re not a sports fan, you might enjoy it. But oh! If your grandfather was buried with a Chicago CUBS hat in the casket (like mine was) and Wrigley Field is in your blood, then you’ll REALLY enjoy it. 😉

Old Copyright Applies …

Shannon asked a good question in a comment so I thought I’d bring it up to a real post and reply to it here. It has to do with my DVD series: Living the Gospel in Relationships Shannon wondered if the original copyright (that allows you to print off or copy as many copies of the 104-page study guide as …

Single Guys & Relationships (HT: New Attitude)

A GREAT READ over at New Attitude: The Gospel and Relationships (for Guys) Let me tempt you with just the tease: “Sacrificial service in a relationship is not just a product of being a ‘nice guy’. It’s not motivated by sentimental chivalry. It’s tied to the very fabric of our faith – Christ’s death for us. (This article intended specifically …
