People

May 23

People. We all have them in our lives. Some of us who hang out in downtown Bangkok can have very interesting people in our lives. As we get to know men in the red light areas, it never ceases to amaze me how broken men really are. But at the same time, I can see how I'm just like them, just a broken person looking for a purpose. I'm a sinner just like them. There's no difference. Is that angry comment…

Lonely

Feb 10

The other day I was downtown. I guess that's not too crazy because downtown is where we go to talk to men. However, today I was focusing on hopelessness. And that was a scary concept for me. You see, it's easy for us to gloss over the hopeless people all around us because we have found Hope. We who have found Christ can live everyday in the hope of our eternal union with Him someday.

And how a life without a moral standard to hold oneself to was a life…

A Recent Epiphany

Feb 19

Does anyone remember that quote we say when we are in a position to tell others of our faith? I think it goes, "Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words." But I have a confession to make: I think I've lived that very way most of my life!!! A recent epiphany has brought me to realize a few things. First, this is not even Biblical. And second, what good is looking different…

Resolutions

Jan 18

Is it a resolution we make every year in January to change ourselves? Is it a new occupation or location of residence we strive for in hope that it will fulfill our wants and desires? Could it be a friendship that reveals a new community of people we never knew of? Today, my desire is that every day be a new day (a new beginning) in my relationship with my great God and Savior Jesus Christ. We live…
