In the Days of Noah

One of our favorite places to visit is the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky. There are so many interesting exhibits that it really requires a couple of days to take it all in, but it’s time well spent.  And your kids will love it! Below is a montage of photos from our last visit. For […]

Moth and Lamb

One of the great battles of the Christian life is to get our eyes off ourselves. How long do you and I go without thinking about our personal interests, ambitions, feelings, desires, likes, dislikes, loves, hates, work, hobbies, food preferences, clothing, vacations, relaxation and a hundred other things concerning ourselves?

Water From a Rock

When I was a child, Thanksgiving at our house was a big deal. My grandparents would usually arrive the evening before to be followed the next day by friends of my parents who traveled some distance just to spend the holiday with us. I’m not sure to this day how she did it, but my […]

Go Down, Moses

Moses trusted God; he just wasn’t sure about himself, the Israelites, or Pharaoh.

Consider Jesus

Covenant of Grace

I’ve been reading Exodus 4 – 6 in preparation for the next Sunday School lesson I’ll be teaching. In these chapters, God calls Moses to lead His people out of Egypt. Rather than having to search for Jesus and the Gospel in these chapters, the writer of Hebrews makes the comparison and then invites us […]

Burning Bushes and Burning Hearts

            Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures? Luke 24:32 This week we taught our Sunday School class the story of God speaking to Moses from a burning bush in the desert. As we prepared to teach, we reflected […]
