  • Priorities
    Reference: Luke 9:57-62 One of the exercises in management training workshops is to give the trainee a task, then bombard him or her with a blizzard of memos to deal with, some of utmost importance, some minor and almost irrelevant, but usually simple to achieve. The point is for the student to learn how to […]
  • The Latest Polls
    Reference: Luke 9:18-24, Galatians 3:23-29 Once again, we are now entering the long period of shared national suffering known as the presidential campaign. The media portrays this as a horse race, with a focus on who is ahead, who has stumbled and is falling behind, and who is the “frontrunner.” Polls will be eagerly anticipated […]

    Reference: 1 John 4:7-21 “God is love,” says John, in the referenced passage above. For some reason, we often seem uncomfortable with such simple statements. Think only of the example of Jesus’ words on Maundy Thursday: “This is my Body.” Jesus so often speaks in analogies and parables, as is the custom of the time. […]
  • The Call
    Reference: 1 Corinthians 12:4-13 The intense excitement of that first Pentecost (see Acts 2:1-11) seems to have faded a bit over the years. Pentecost today ranks as a clear third place in terms of both excitement and importance after Christmas and Easter. Most Western Christians tend to be “Jesus people,” failing to grasp the power […]
  • Got It!
    Reference: Acts 1:1-11 He tried all the educational tools he knew: lecture, analogy, example, visual aids, drama, discussions, leading questions and more. They grasped some of it, but the crucial heart of it still escaped them. This was after four years of intensive study. He was usually very patient, although the frustration he felt became […]
