Heroes in the Alaskan Bush

I’m in the heart of Alaska in a cabin nestled in the Talkeetna Mountains. They are majestic. But the real inspiration comes from the people I have the privilege to be with this week… the missionary families who live in the bush villages of Alaska. They not only face the harshness of the winters and the darkness when the sun barely rises during the day, if at all, but they fac...

The Three-Fifths Compromise: Shame on America?

230 years ago, this Sunday, marks the signing of the U.S. Constitution. It would later be ratified by the states as a “contract” or “covenant” under which the Federal Government was established. It was forged in the midst of the arguments from those who feared it would grant the Federal Government too much power and those who believed the current Articles of Confederatio...

Total Solar Eclipse: Another Amazing Coincidence?

The light of naturalism’s lamp illuminates only the natural. Therefore, nothing outside of the material realm can be seen. But it’s not that naturalism then supposes there “might be” something out there... in the dark. No, it explicitly states that NOTHING exists outside of the material box. Nothing. Since the current scientific paradigm is wedded to naturalism, it...

The Unselfish Life: Tribute to Dennie Lewis, Fire Chief

I just attended the funeral of a dear friend in Kansas City. He was my brother-in-law, a dedicated husband, a faithful Christian and a fireman… specifically, a fire chief. It wasn’t too long ago that this robust outdoorsman was diagnosed with ALS, a horrible disease that relentlessly destroys the body’s motor functions. It attacked his muscles until he was confined to a mo...

A True American Hero: Hero Shiosaki

I recently returned from a trip to Idaho. This was where I grew up. I still consider it my home state. While there, we visited a museum containing an exhibit on the Japanese Internment that occurred shortly after Pearl Harbor. Following an Executive Order by Franklin D. Roosevelt, nearly 120,000 people of Japanese descent were moved into interment camps. It was a shameful moment in our histo...

The Founder's Backbone

Not too long ago I was struck by two incidents that measured how we as a culture are increasingly losing the mettle to stand for our convictions. The newly crowned Miss USA was asked if she believed that health care was a privilege or a right. She was also asked if she were a feminist. Her answers were contrary to the power of the new beast in our culture and within 24 hours she was for...

Hummingbird iFlower

Hummingbird iFlower Sometimes things occur so quickly that you barely have time to register what is happening. I was sitting on my deck, enjoying the Colorado blue sky, sparkling air and the butterscotch smell of the ponderosa pines. I had a turkey sandwich in my right hand and in my left I was reading an email on my red smartphone. Out of nowhere, a hummingbird appear...

When Infants Invade Adult Bodies

On Election Day, at lunchtime, I was at a park in Colorado Springs. On one corner of the park sits one of our big high schools. It was a nice day (normal for the Springs) and the students filled the park, several making out lying on the grass. On the opposite corner stood a young man, conservatively dressed, holding an American flag and a Trump sign. He had a radio on the ground, not very loud,...

A Day of Decision

Today is a day of decision. Do not listen to whispers of the the enemy or the “World” to snuff your lamp. Fight for life and marriage, for sexual sanity and religious freedom, for self government and constitutional law. Fight to tame the Federal Beast which may soon rise to the height that it will consume everything. Fight.
