  • GRACE NOTES: Death loses, God wins

     On Oct. 26, a woman named Terri married the man of her dreams, and on Nov. 12, her new husband, Mike, went in for surgery for a lump on his jaw and had 9/10 of his tongue removed.

    Mike is dying from oral cancer, slowly and painfully.

    I’ve been following their saga on Facebook. It is both incredibly sad and filled with sweetness and an ultimate happily-ever-after ending.

    Here are some of Terri’s most recent Facebook posts:

  • COLUMN: What influences you?

     Dr. C. Everett Koop, former surgeon general under President Ronald Reagan, died recently. The president of the National Christian Medical and Dental Association paid tribute to Dr. Koop’s Christian life and ministry in a newsletter to fellow physicians. 

    In his article he quoted a poem that meant much in Dr. Koop’s life:

  • COLUMN: Let Christ handle your worries

     In the time we are living, many of us are choked by anxieties.

    Our lives are characterized by feelings of uneasiness, apprehension, dread, concern, tension, restlessness and worry. Our brains record specific memories and emotions that are stored and can be replayed today in as vivid a form as when they occurred. We are reacting not only to the current day stresses, but also to the repressed emotions of childhood.

  • COLUMN: Use your time wisely

     Time is precious. We are not on this earth very long. One day you start to flip the switch and turn the light on, but you find the bulb is shot. This will happen in life.

    So, each of us should seek to make the most of the time that we have. We can do this by making most of our walk with God. James 4:14-16 asks the question, “What is your life?” He goes ahead to say among other things that it is a vapor that appears for a short time and then vanishes into the air.

  • GRACE NOTES: Humility - it's all about me

     This semester, New York Times columnist David Brooks is teaching a course at Yale called “Humility.”

    As part of the required reading: passages from the Bible, works from St. Augustine and German theologian Reinhold Niehbuhr — and columns by course professor David Brooks himself.

    Brooks is teaching a course on humility using his own columns.
