Warning: Upcoming Turbulence in 2019

I despise airplane turbulence. Even though I enjoy high-speed roller coasters, there is something about hurling through stormy skies in a commercial jetliner at 37,000 feet that turns my knuckles white. This is why I always ask for a window seat. Whenever we hit rough air and the seat belt sign flashes on, I feel safer if I can look outside.

Please Stop Demonizing Christmas

During a recent trip to El Salvador, a pastor and I were talking about how much we both love Christmas music.

I’d already seen the typical tourist sites in Jerusalem, and honestly, I was not looking forward to standing in long lines to see Jesus’ tomb. (Sometimes the Holy Land can feel like a religious version of Disney World—especially on crowded days.)

Is it Trump’s Fault We Are a Nation of Haters?

Last Saturday at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh, a man armed with an assault rifle and three handguns interrupted the worship service shouting, “All Jews must die!” He then killed 11 people, including a 97-year-old woman, Rose Mallinger. Her family fully expected her to live to be 100.

God Is Neither Republican or Democrat

There’s a fascinating account in the biblical book of Joshua that is quite relevant to people of faith as we approach the midterm elections. It also ties in with a famous Civil War account involving Abraham Lincoln. As we’ll see, the lesson from both is the same.

Eleven Reasons Why Christians Should Not Celebrate Halloween
