Faith Column: Having faith that everything will be alright

Worrying about a missing friend, coming together in faith

On Tuesday evening of this week, my son-in-law received word that a good friend was missing. The missing man was a family friend that was bowing hunting in Utah with my son-in- law’s brother. He had not been seen since Sunday morning.

Faith Column: The second half of life

In the first article I wrote Our Two Halves of Life, we learned about what we do in the first half of life where we spend much of our time filling the vessel with possessions, power and prestige, often referred to as the three “P’s.

Faith Column: Trust in faith to get through uncertain times

Life for us in Northwest Colorado has had more than its share of opportunities to give in to fear and panic.

Faith Column: How do you spell faith?

I guess that’s sort of a trick question. Maybe a better question is how do you live faith? Either way, the answer, for me, is something one of my pastors said….often: Faith is spelled R-I-S-K.

Faith Column: His amazing hand

Just take a moment to look at your right hand. Then with your right hand touch your fingers to your thumb one at a time and count to four and then count your thumb.

Faith Column: Deal with today's issues to enjoy the future

We are in charge of our own happienss

What I feel this scripture means in a simple way is “handle today’s difficulties today” no matter if it is in marriage or in life. Don’t allow the problems of today to affect tomorrow. Handle the issues today so you don’t have to wade through them tomorrow.

Faith Column: Jesus’ miracles are profound

In the tradition of denominations, which designate set readings for set times of the year, known as the Lectionary, the reading from the Gospel according to Mark denotes the time when there was a miracle within a miracle as Jesus Christ returned to the Galilean side of the Sea of Galilee.

Faith Column: Jesus and all his works

As Christians we are all really the same, but we spend a lot of time dwelling on the differences between our religions.

Faith Column: Our two halves of life

Our first half of life is about creating an identity, who are we, finding some boundary markers through traditions, trustworthy authorities and structures, making money and wealth, getting an education, marrying, and raising children which we spend the rest of our lives defending. In other words, it’s about filling the empty vessel that the Creator gave us. It’s all about me, that “Life is about me.”

Faith Column: Being a good Christian

We look around our world, listen to the news, or even look within ourselves and our families and see the frailty, imperfection, and flawed nature of mankind. In Bible words, sin abounds. This is easy to see and cannot be argued away. Man’s nature is to think, “Well I’ve done more good than evil, and I’m certainly doing better than the next guy, so God must be ok with me; I’ll take my chances.”

Faith Column: What's your worldview?

Unless you are in college or seminary, how often do you think about how your worldview affects your day-to-day life? Even if you are in college, do ever consider it after you turned in your worldview assignment? Your worldview matters, and as a Christian it is especially important to look at life (and beyond) with the right perspective, or worldview.

Faith Column: Restoring broken relationships

Relationships are always worth restoring! Because the Christian life is all about learning how to love, God wants us to value relationships and make every effort to maintain them instead of discarding them whenever there is a hurt or a conflict. God has given us the ministry of restoring relationships! That’s why a significant amount of the New Testament is devoted to teaching us how to get along with one another.
