Why Are So Many Churchgoers Lonely?

Why Are So Many Churchgoers Lonely?

There is more than one kind of poverty. Many believers are hungry for the sense of belonging that genuine fellowship provides. Sometimes God uses the awareness of our own poverty to make others rich. I recently discovered this during a move to a new town. My husband,...

I'm part of a generation that hungers to know God. We want a real relationship with Him—the kind that's filled with the laughter, tears and honesty even when it hurts. We want a relationship with God that isn't tampered with by artificial additives that promise...

Scouting the Divine: Unforgettable Lessons From a Shepherd

Scouting the Divine: Unforgettable Lessons From a Shepherd

In my research for Scouting the Divine: My Search for God in Wine, Wool, and Wild Honey, I spent time with a shepherd in Oregon, a farmer in Nebraska, a beekeeper in Colorado and vintner in California. With each person, I opened up the scripture and asked, “How do you...

Discovering God in Unexpected Places

Discovering God in Unexpected Places

As I read the Bible, I’ve become increasingly aware that the Bible was written in an agrarian context, but I live in a modern suburban world. When the Scriptures talk about themes of shepherding and farming and harvest, I understand them with my head but not necessarily my heart. So I decided to do something about it.

I traveled to Oregon to spend time with a shepherdess and her flock, Nebraska to visit a farmer and his nephew, southern Colorado to peek inside a beehive, and California to learn about viticulture. Along the way, I opened the scriptures, asking each person how they read various scriptures, not as theologians, but in light of what they did every day. Their answers illuminated passages of the Bible in a whole new way and deepened my relationship with God.

What If Jesus Doesn’t Come Back This Year?

What If Jesus Doesn’t Come Back This Year?

Think about it. God wants us to live our lives with a long-range view of the future. I'm not a controversial kind of gal. Controversy's not my shtick nor is it a factor, for me, in what New York Times best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell calls "stickiness." In fact, I...

When the Laughter Stopped

Comedian Jeff Allen says there’s no such thing as a ‘fun drunk.’

My wife is always trying to get me to exercise. First of all, I hate exercise. I tried jogging about a year ago. I wasn’t very good at it. I’d run about a mile, buy a half dozen doughnuts and walk back. I ran every day for six months and gained 41 pounds. If you ask me, running really packs on the flab!

Jeff Allen knows how to get a laugh. With more than 18 years on the comedy circuit and 5,000 performances under his belt, Allen has perfected the art of twisting everyday situations into comedy. But don’t let the facade fool you. Behind this blue-sports-coat-toting, khaki-pant-wearing all-American dad who can make hundreds roll by recounting the early days of his marriage is a man who will tell you he’s learned life’s lessons the hard way.
