The Feast of Life

It was a “Christmas tradition.” Every year while on staff at Williamson’s Chapel, a few weeks before Christmas we would be invited to the home of the most amazing cook. It took the place of our staff meeting and truthfully, it was a day we all coveted because it gave...

Disfigurement

Dr. Maxwell Maltz was an American cosmetic surgeon and author of Psycho-Cybernetics, which is a system of ideas that he claimed could improve one's self-image leading to a more successful and fulfilling life. He tells a powerful story that gives us a powerful glimpse...

A Big Little Word

In order to come to the manger there is something we must do. To come and walk in faithfulness we must first repent.  It is a little word but carries such a big meaning. Not the moralistic meaning religious puritists have assigned to it.  But life-transforming...
