    Language matters. It really does. What we say and how we say it can be life changing. A female police officer confided in me that more than one citizen in the community she served asked if she could send for a “real police officer” to handle their concern. She took the...

    Empathy is a quality that develops with age. I am convinced this is true. When I was in my 20’s, I had a complete inability to view the world through the eyes of my mother. I had no inkling what I put her through as she raised me! I knew I was a handful, but I didn’t g...

    A number of years ago my mother gave me the kitchen table that our family ate meals on back in the ‘50’s and ‘60's. I was not around in the '50's to enjoy those meals. In my case, some of the fellowship around the table was spent in a high chair in the '60's. It was a ...

    In kicking of f the new sermon series on shame, I shared the following story... Colleen I and both carried about a lot of shame for years regarding our childhood foolishness. Don't let shame control you. Choose to reconnect with someone today! Memories have a way of fa...

    Over the course of my 29-year career in ministry I have learned that churches have hidden treasures. And I don’t mean a stash of priceless diamonds hidden in a Vacation Bible School costume that has been stored in a closet since 1968. I am talking about people… Tim is ...

    My firstborn son reminded me yesterday that I used to attempt to conceal Dramamine tablets in Almond Joy bars when he was a little boy. I had totally forgotten! I actually thought it was a really clever idea. MY dad was of the mind to give me Dramamine without the adde...

    I am planning on being a grumpy old man. It would probably be a good idea to go on and tell my kids. But I think they already know. Believe it or not there actually are men that age quite well without the addition of any grumpiness. I know one quite well. He is a widow...

    Harold Durham shared this story with us based on events that occurred yesterday at the Christian Service Center. I hope you find it as inspiring as I did. LIFE IS GREAT AT THE CHRISTIAN SERVICE CENTER I just finished eating lunch with a group of ladies. We concluded ou...

    What kinds of sermons have you heard on the subject of prayer? That’s a loaded question! Perhaps most sermons you’ve heard on this subject have focused on “praying more.” Such homilies are characteristically sprinkled with examples of ancient saints that spent hours in...

    J. Bailey kicked off the first sermon series for the year entitled: “New Year New Life” last Sunday. In his presentation, he delved into the whole idea of regret. A few thoughts in today’s blog on this very important subject. I stumbled on this quote from Alexander Gra...

    As the new year approaches, we often think of things we would “like” to change in our lives. Perhaps we ponder things we “need” to change. We may even consider matters that we “want” to change. It occurred to me recently that such choice of language subtly lets us of t...

    There is a lot of pressure at the holidays to somehow replicate what is portrayed in a Norman Rockwell painting. Or better yet, we feel the need to experience Christmas like the Depression era Walton family portrayed on television 40 years ago. I am going to call all o...

    What is the definition of “true spirituality?” In going one step further, what is the definition of “spiritual depth?” In church circles, I hear these terms used with some frequency. “She is such a spiritual person.” “He has such spiritual depth.” I struggle with this ...

    Let’s face it. The holidays are stressful. Last week I heard several stories of family disunity and dysfunction. A father lives in the same town as his grown daughter and grandchildren, but doesn’t even as much as call them on Thanksgiving. In other scenarios, step-chi...

    Judy Siburt is one of my all-time favorite people. In a recent post, she made the following observation. “A gift of a long, sturdy friendship is one of God's greatest blessings.” I understand the concept of long-time friendship really well. But the word “sturdy” caused...

    New Year’s resolutions are often pretty standard. And I suspect in many cases, they get broken fairly soon into the New Year. I am going to give everyone 9 days to get their New Year’s resolutions out of their system. On January 10th, a guest speaker will kick off the ...

    Dr. Jerry Taylor is one of my all-time favorite speakers. I have invited him to speak every year since I have been in Granbury. And he spoke for us at an old fashioned tent meeting when I was serving in Woodward, OK. He is a fine man. Last Sunday he hit a home-run. His...

    The word “hypocrite” is often misapplied. The term is commonly applied to those that display their flaws at the most inopportune times. But that is a misapplication. The term was originally used to refer to onstage actors in ancient Greece. If you are a true hypocrite,...

    Go and park there...You deserve it! I am a part of a very entitled generation. We feel eligible for every benefit that life has to offer. Go on and it give it to us, because we have it coming. There is no doubt that we are qualified to be on the receiving end of all go...
