Looking for Heroes as Australia Burns

wallaby 330Like many others, my heart is breaking amidst the devastating wildfires in Australia. An estimated 1 billion animals have lost their lives, at least 20 people have perished (but that number is expected to grow), and hundreds of homes are lost. It is in these times that I’ve found that fighting bitterness can be hard. Fighting the anger and the question of “why” consumed me for months as Australia was being consumed by the heat of uncontrollable flame.

C.H.R.I.S.T.M.A.S.! Relationship Principles

christmasrelationshipsWhile simplifying your holiday season, take time for relationships to thrive, not just survive the holidays. Keep those relationships balanced with your holiday planning. People ARE more important than things at this time of year. The majority of people when asked what makes Christmas feel more meaningful, say it is time spent with those they love, worshipping the God that loves them! But the holiday season can also be a stressful one. Our counseling load always goes up, because people and their relationships are imperfect, but we often want our celebration time to be picture perfect.

Charlie Brown’s ‘The Great Pumpkin’ Remains One of TV’s Great Faith Metaphors

GreatPumpkin CharlieBrownOne of the great things about October—or really any holiday season—is that a Peanuts special once again hits primetime and the work of Charles Schulz is back in the cultural awareness. The Charlie Brown special It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown returns, and with it, one of Schulz’s great metaphors about faith. Sure, with its birth-of-Jesus monologue, the Christmas special contains the series’ most blatant discussion of faith (and remains a classic), but in It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Linus delivers some of his most powerful thoughts about faith, doubt, sincerity and hope.
