#FathersDay

In Scripture the word "father" is found more than 1,100 times.  A father's involvement in the lives of his children is vitally important -- nearly every study conducted in the social sciences confirms what the Bible teaches . . . fathers matter.

I'm thankful to have many memories of my father -- some of which come vividly to mind when I hear certain songs like Nat King Cole's Stardust.

Whenever I hear this old standard, I'm 10 years old and back in the living room of the home I grew up in . . . sitting around the turntable and listening to LPs ...

Being Salt & Light

Bible-revival-outside-the-walls-barry-meguiarMy name is Selah.  It always has been … but recently, I’ve been learning to capitalize on it.  Here’s what I mean.


“Selah” is a term from Psalms that means “stop and meditate on the Lord.”  As a teenager, peers thought it was equally cool and weird to be named after that kind of thing.  As a pastor’s kid with this type of “branded” name, I tried to play down the Psalm reference—you know, so I could fit in.

That’s sad because being named after a biblical term ...

When Will Isn't Enough

Max-LucadoSeveral weeks ago, I fell prey to a nasty cold.  The first four days of the virus, I was in denial.  I went to work and church and ran errands, just like a normal week.

Then, on day #5, I finally admitted to being sick.  But I figured I could "out-will" the virus.  So I got ready for work like a regular Monday and stumbled into the office.  A few colleagues asked if I was feeling OK.  I told them "not really"but I was going to power through the day anyhow.  No need to worry about me!  I even ...

She's 35, Not a Christian, and Listening: Why?

Boundless

On this past weekend's broadcast of "The Boundless Show", host Lisa Anderson read a remarkable letter from a regular listener.  Read it and consider the implications for yourself.  Then ponder this question: What would you hope an unbeliever (or, a "not-yet Christian") would say about the content you produce?

Dear Lisa & the Boundless Team,

I wanted to write you a note of thanks and encouragement from an unexpected listener, I think. 

I'm not a Christian and have no plans to be -- no offense, it's just not my jam.  But I really love your show.

Lisa, you are ...

Hope for Harmi: Great Need in Nepal

Nepal Hope for Harmi

A new Christian radio station in Nepal was destroyed in last month's earthquake. 

Reach Beyond has been working with local partners in Nepal since 2010.  It's a challenging part of the world to reach, but that doesn't deter the ministry who's name reflects their vision.  In fact, their "manifesto" speaks to their commitment to the unreached:

"We refuse to stand idly by as people enter eternity without Christ when we can share the Good News that transforms them through the media they use."

Read what's happening as a result of the earthquake, and the opportunity ...
