Heaven. I have never been, but someday I'll go.

HeavenHeaven.  Never been, but I’ll go some day.

 

When Charles Morris told me that he was going to be sharing a dramatic story of a 4 year old who lost consciousness on a surgeons table, only to awake and insist he had been to Heaven…let’s just say I raised an eye-brow.

 

Then I listened to HAVEN Today broadcasts this week.   I’m glad I listened.  The story doesn’t fit as neatly as I would like into all my theological categories…but I do know something amazing took place in this young boy’s life.  What did ...

Child PrayingNeither poverty nor violence are abstract concepts.  They are choices we make that impact the lives of the innocent.

Today those innocent are telescoped in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and in Tucson, Arizona.  And in the days since both tragedies occurred, and in the days to follow will be the recriminations, the probing questions, the partisan arguments both political and theological.

But not today!  Please, not today.

Today is a day to mourn with those who mourn.
To console those who mourn.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of ...

When Tragedy Hits Close to Home

My mood on Saturday morning suddenly turned somber as I learned about the shooting tragedy that took place in Tucson, my hometown.

Having reconnected with many Tucson friends through Facebook, I started seeing their posts shortly after the event occurred and in seeing pictures on the news, realized that this tragic event took place in a very familiar shopping center located just a few minutes from where I used to live.

Jon CampbellOver the past several weeks I've been doing a fair amount of "pondering" ... in large measure precipitated by a personal move.  In a rapid chain of events that's kept me in a head-spinning mode for three months, I sold my home of 23 years, the place where Jon moved from earth to heaven, and landed in a new (to me) nest.  It's been an extraordinary thing -- houses just don't sell in SoCal right now, especially when it isn't even listed.  The best part of the whole saga is that my beloved abode now holds a ...
