Paul’s Ministry to Rome

Several years ago, my daughter, Hannah, was eating something—I believe it was some M&Ms—when she began to choke. My wife ran over to her, spun her around and began to perform the Heimlich Maneuver on her. It wasn't pretty at all—with Hannah's arms flailing around and everything, but it worked. That happened in our living room, right in front of a huge picture window. I sometimes wonder what that might have looked like to someone walking by in that moment. I wonder if they would have ...

Paul’s Third Journey

The sports world is filled with athletes who seemed to be on a path toward certain super-stardom only to have it all unravel in the blink of an eye. Sometimes it is because of an injury. Sometimes it is because of poor choices. Sometimes it is a mystery. One day they are on top of the sports world; the next day they are added to the list of "what might have beens." The same rapid descent can also be found in the business world, political world, and pretty much every other area of ... [Reading More]

Paul Preached in Europe

A while ago, I purchased a used wooden swing set and fort. It seemed to be in decent condition, although I knew I wanted to play around some with the design of the fort. My brother-in-law and a friend helped me take the equipment down, load it up on a trailer, haul it to my house, and then set-up the swing set. And do you know the first thing I did? I plopped down on the swing and swung. (Or would that be swang?) Yup, before my kids even had a chance, I hopped on that swing and took it for a ... [Reading More]
