  • In high school, I participated in marching band. One of the key components to marching rests in the necessity for each member to stay in step with one another. When an individual finds themselves out of step with the band, the entire show suffers. In a similar way, God calls believers to walk in step with the Spirit. When one becomes out of step, his or her life falls outside of the desires of the Lord for one’s life and as a result struggling ensues.

  • One day a few weeks ago, as my wife and I were riding down Ring Road in Elizabethtown, I suddenly felt an impulse to turn into the Nature Park where I had heard there was a replica of the Vietnam War Memorial Wall.  The memorial contains the names of thousands of service men and women who lost their lives in a war, the value of which is still being debated.  The wall is very symbolic as it reminds us of lives lost in a distant country.
