Part 1: Is Unity Possible in An Election Season?

Each November, the arrival of outdoor lights, Christmas trees and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” announces that it’s almost the most wonderful time of the year. If that’s true, what do all the yard signs in my neighborhood and mudslinging commercials announce? The least wonderful time of the year?

The Act of Remembrance

The Act of Remembrance

My memory of September 11, 2001 is vivid. I was in third grade. My morning began as it always did and that day happened to be music class which meant we had a long trek from the third grade hallway in the back of the school to the music room at the front. I noticed my teacher looking distressed as she exchanged whispers with other teachers, talking about what they saw on the news. News traveled fast that morning.

Welcome Others: Take A Chance on Someone New

Shortly after my first year of college started, I had a group of about 15 friends that hung out together every waking minute. We were inseparable and moved as a pack. We were all very different in belief and story, yet we didn’t care. The disappointing part was that as we began to ask life’s questions and learn who we are, we let the things that made us unique separate us from the community that we had created.

Welcome Others: The Responsibility of Sons and Daughters

We all have positions that we hold. In fact, most, if not all of us, are managing multiple positions, sometimes at the same time. You may have a position at work as a boss or employee, or both. You may have a position at home as a parent. If you serve at a church, you may hold a position as a volunteer. These positions are important because with them comes responsibility, and impacts the people around you.

Can you remember a time you felt important? It feels good doesn’t it? We all long for that feeling and feel such comfort when we experience it. We all have different aspirations, desires, plans, likes, and dislikes, but it seems that regardless of our differences, we all share a universal desire to feel and be valued.

Welcome Others: Doing Business Christianly

Welcome Others: Doing Business Christianly

I’ll never forget one conversation I had with a brother from Canada. As we were discussing how the Gospel affects us personally and culturally, he made a statement that has stuck with me ever since. He said, “Josh, there is a major difference between being a Christian businessman and doing business Christianly.” I’ve often reflected on that phrase and I want to suggest 4 ways how doing “business Christianly” is a critical form of hospitality that serves as one of the greatest witnesses to the truth of the Gospel.
