Giving God a Hand

After speaking for Hillsong at the Dominion Theater in London on Sunday, I was honored to speak on Monday night for a large audience including several hundred associates of the Genistar Corporation, UK, at the London Chamber of Commerce.  Walking to this event, I passed the imposing St. Paul’s Cathedral, which amazingly survived the bombing...

When Society Doesn’t Fit

Sometimes, approaching a familiar topic from an unexpected angle provides perspective. When a writer presents a peek into an unfamiliar culture and he is motivated by interest rather than by an agenda, he offers that opportunity. A book I recently read, Plain Secrets: An Outsider Among the Amish by Joe Mackall gave me not only...

Name that Animal

Dale Carnegie started it with his book How to Win Friends and Influence People. With Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg continues to stress the importance of “friends.”  But collecting “friends” because of the benefit they bring you is creepy and manipulative. It is certainly no way to form authentic relationships. This Thursday night, God willing, will be...

Protecting the Planet…or People?

I’m not sure of a delicate way to put this, but I’d like to talk about toilets. You see, we were in Israel for the Biblical holyday of Sukot (Tabernacles) and in addition to the fantastic experiences we had (along with seeing our daughter, son-in-law, incredibly cute grandson, friends and relatives) I also had an...

Royal Recommendation

Imagine a remote island never touched by civilization.  Its primitive populace possesses limited livestock and subsists on ineffective agriculture and inept fishing.  Violence and brutality are common; tribal warfare and disease shorten life expectancy. Now imagine being parachuted onto this island.  Let’s stipulate that the natives venerate you as a god-from-the-sky, feed you and care...

ATVs, Guns and Ballots

My husband and I always have fun and learn something new when we spend time with our friends, David and Cheryl Barton (www.wallbuilders.com ). The time we shared a few weeks ago was no exception. They graciously introduced us to their friends, Pastor Tim and Terri Brooks who had invited my husband to address the...

Laundry Curmudgeon

I realize that there are urgent and important stories making the news or being under-reported. Nevertheless, I ask your indulgence while I vent about a seemingly minor topic. Over the past year, our laundry has frequently piled up. We’ve often been on the road doing speeches and appearances for two-week periods with seldom more than...
