Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Let's get dressed for heaven

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Let's get dressed for heaven

    The Holy Spirit seems to have loved the use of analogy in inspiring the teachers and writers of Scripture. In the New Testament, the marriage union is used to represent the relationship between Jesus and his people. The Bible’s applications of this parallel can help us prepare for the coming of Christ. If we want to be followers of Christ, we need to understand that “the Way” of Christ involves a change of our nature and a change of relationship to sin.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Facts must trump parents' 'feelings'

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Facts must trump parents' 'feelings'

    One of the signs of these confused and confusing times we live in is that facts don’t matter. What matters are feelings and opinions, which are often confused and confusing. According to another author friend, this is the primary feature of post-post-modernity.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Parenting books can stress moms out

    I’ve asked the men in several recent audiences to raise hands if they believe moms stress out concerning their children at least five times more than dads. All the men’s hands went up to general laughter.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: April showers bring the treasures of springtime

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: April showers bring the treasures of springtime

    The month of April showers the observant one with a magnificent display of colors, from the fragrant wisteria blossoms creeping through the boughs of trees to the willowy stems of bright-yellow Jessamine, to the snowbells bowing their heads and wild azaleas bursting forth. Seemingly every shade of green imaginable puts on a show just for the month of April before fading and dulling as summer approaches. New life springs forth: buds and blossoms, chicks and bunnies, an empty tomb and the Resurrection.

Kathy Bradley: People, like books, must be opened to be understood

    Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, his shoulder fits into the hollow of my side and the loop of my arm conforms to the back of his neck. Exactly. Perfectly. I have to tilt my chin only slightly to rest it on the blonde head, to draw in the scent of little boy. One chair, two of us.

A little homework for Easter

A little homework for Easter

    Last Sunday, every church throughout the world celebrated Palm Sunday in sermon, music and pageantry. Allow me to use what I consider to be the first of the Synoptic Gospels, Mark, and read about the man Jesus, who many thought just might be the long-awaited Messiah. First off, let's try to envision Jesus' entry into Jerusalem from a point of view that most likely existed with at least three succinct and different groups: There were those who claimed that Jesus was the Messiah, those who were the locals and who may have recalled an event which took place nearly ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Shy, independent children are normal

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Shy, independent children are normal

    Q: Our 7-year-old is very shy. He doesn’t enjoy the sort of social activities, including sports, that other kids his age are generally involved in and would rather play alone. He has one friend, who is also quite shy. His mother and I have conspired to arrange weekly play dates, but whereas the boys get along fine, both kids sometimes balk at cooperating with them. My son occasionally tells me he’d rather read or play alone than play with this other boy. When I ask why, he tells me he "just would." His school counselor has recommended that ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: God is always a good, wise choice


    Years ago, Lindell Doty, a retired preacher and friend of mine now living in Florida, suggested that everybody has choices to make. Now, making decisions can be hard — sometimes so hard that we delay them as long as possible.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Encourage your child's flights of fancy

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Encourage your child's flights of fancy

    Today’s parents tend to worry about all manner of things that do not deserve second thoughts. Imaginary friends, for example. I’ve been asked many times by mothers if they should worry that their preschoolers have imaginary friends they seem to think — and in some cases even insist — are real.

Kathy Bradley: Flirting with the sunrise

Kathy Bradley: Flirting with the sunrise

    The color of this early morning in not-quite spring is liquid lavender, is pearly pink, is slightly silver in the way it glints and glows. The sky and the fields and everything in them are shaded as though tinted by a crayon unwrapped and swiped across the countryside with its long barrel, the sharp tip forgotten. Outlines and details are unimportant to the day as it languorously wakens.
