When I first met my wife, Ruth, it was while we were both attending seminary in Kentucky. To help pay for school, Ruth worked in the student center on campus, in which our gym, weight room, and dining commons were located. I sort of knew Ruth from having checked in at the front desk a few times...

This summer my family had the amazing opportunity to visit the ancient city of Corinth. We were in awe as we walked the ruins and saw the place Paul preached to the Corinthians. James and I loved sharing this experience with our children. As we explored the ruins, we imagined what it would have...

Are vacations godly? Are they biblical? I think so. I hope so since I’ve got a couple of weeks away scheduled for this summer. As far as I could discover, the word ‘vacation’ isn’t in the Bible, not even in the Greek or Hebrew. Not even in The Message. Of course, you...
