Does Your Bible Reading Kindle a Fire in Your Heart?

What would it be like if Jesus led your personal Bible reading/study time? In a word—awesome!   When it happened to a couple of  bummed out disciples walking along a dusty road to Emmaus, they said “. . .our hearts burned within us while he talked to us on the road, while He opened the […]

I Must Not Be Doing Christian Right.

Reflections on the Christian Life It seems like it should be easier after 43 years. I must not be doing Christian right.
