The Death Panel court of the UK’s socialized medical system is at it again.  Just as with Charlie Gard, little Alfie Evans and his parents are in the fight of there lives.  Not only with an unknown disease that keeps Alfie in a coma, with  seizuers, but with a hospital supported by a socialized medical and court system much more comfortable with terminating life than turning that life over to those who LOVE IT and to another hospital willing to help Alfie rather than KILL him. Doctors at the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital are in disagreement with Alfie’s parents on whether “continued active treatment” isRead More →

John 14:6  6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” First, brief context and backstory: This statement, among the most “radical” ever spoken by Jesus was made in response to a question that Thomas posed in the previous verse while Jesus and the disciples were gathered in the upper room for the last supper before His arrest:   John 14:5 – Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going.  How can we know the way?” Jesus, being the only one with the knowledge of what was to come, answersRead More →

John 1:1-5  1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  2 He was in the beginning with God.  3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.  4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.  5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. Have you ever thought about the mystery, power, and glory of this statement? Consider its impact on the Christmas story and incorporate it into your season of advent. #RadicalWords #WeAreRadicalMenRead More →

A flood of emotions is all I have. My heart is broken today for little Charlie’s parents. Now that his earthly struggle has come to an end, I am joyful and assured that little Charlie has been called home and is fully embraced in the arms of Christ. I am near the point of rage at the tyranny of a progressive government that is allowed steal away from the parents their privilege of nurturing and caring for one of God’s children. Lastly, I am fearful that the body of Christ has either fallen asleep or has been beaten into submission to the point that we willRead More →

John 1:14 (NIV) – “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son (Jesus), who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”   Commenting on this passage, Tim Keller writes, “Truth without love is harshness; it gives us information but in such a way that we cannot really hear it. Love without truth is sentimentality; it supports and affirms us but keeps us in denial about our flaws.”   In case you miss Pastor Keller’s point, let me break it down:   1. If you are ALL TRUTH and NORead More →

This past week I attended the Christian Home Educators of Colorado (CHEC) annual Homeschool Conference as a first-time attendee.  Lisa and I have been homeschooling for 3 years now but have never taken the time to attend such a conference; what a mistake!  I registered for the conference with the mindset that I would learn additional teaching tricks with which I could better grasp the nine and eleven year old minds I am responsible for filling.    Or, I might find that miracle writing curriculum that would instantaneously transform my elementary writers into Plato, Shakespeare, or C.S. Lewis.  On both accounts I struck out.  I didn’tRead More →

In the late 1920’s, my great grandmother quit her job as a nurse at Swedish hospital in Englewood, CO to mother her young child while my great grandfather traveled the country building grain silos for the government. During that same period and through the 1930’s, she voluntarily constructed a small tent city in the land behind her house to quarantine and care-for dozens of TB patients in Englewood and South Denver. MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER IS A FEMINIST! In 1942, my grandmother began working as a recruitment clerk for the U.S. War Department office in Littleton, CO while my grandfather served overseas as a bomber tail-gunner.Read More →
