OFF TO DUBLIN I’m off tomorrow for ten days in the Irish city of Dublin. It’s a secular city, like most of the larger cities in Europe, and many in the United States, I might add. The people are friendly and generous to a fault, but they are wandering around without a lifeline to Jesus. […]

THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY The Good: Kennis is one of the inmates I’m mentoring at the county jail. He’s a surrendered soul who’s waiting to get into Adult and Teen Challenge. I’m going to visit him today and am looking forward to it. Pray for him. The Bad: Another inmate I’m mentoring, […]

  X X is the Greek letter chi, which is the first letter of the word Christ.  Thus Xmas is shorthand for Christmas, taking only about one-sixth as long to write. If you do your cards by hand, it is possible to save as much as seventy-five or eighty minutes a year. It is tempting to say that what […]

NOT SURRENDERED AND SURRENDERED I have posted before about a 28 year old man, Joe, whom I have been mentoring. He’s the one who called me Ridiculous Pat because I told him God couldn’t help him until he surrendered his life to His governance. Joe claimed he was a Christian, and I accepted his testimony […]

OFF TO JAIL I gave three presentations at the Stearns County Jail, September 13. and handed out 59 copies of Arm in Arm with the Holy Spirit. There were two groups of men and one group of women. Also in attendance were five Gideon men and women that the program director invited, for which I was grateful. […]

IRMA I was meditating downstairs in the first morning hour when Hurricane Irma came into my mind, along with the following prayer. “Flood over me Holy Spirit, as Irma flooded over Florida. Wipe out the buildings of my self that I erected over a lifetime and give me new structures made from your hand.” Follow […]

TYLER GRADUATES The ex-inmate I’m mentoring, Tyler, graduated last night from his 14-month program at the New Hope Center in South Minneapolis. I was there and proudly watched as he received his diploma and gave his testimony to a roomful of attendees. I’m even more proud of the stalwart Christian he has become. Tyler has […]

BUSY, BUSY, BUSY You can’t add a desire to be closer to God on top of a busy life. He won’t fit where there is no space. You need to take something out to let Him in. You need to say “no” to parts of your life and put in the “yes” of Jesus Christ. […]

MY FATHER’S BUSINESS I like the King James Version of Luke 2:49: “I must be about my Father’s business.” That’s what Jesus said to Mary and Joseph when they finally found him after a long search in Jerusalem following the Feast of Passover. As I’m sitting in my office chair and typing this message, I […]

JESUS AND PETER DOWN BY THE LAKE Pastor Bill started his sermon last Sunday by saying, “We are challenged by God to be something beyond ourselves.” The last chapter of the Gospel of John has Jesus talking to Peter down by the shore of the Sea of Galilee. Given that Pastor Bill is a good […]
