Stop, Think It Over

Tuesday marks 46 years since the passage of Roe v Wade, which made abortion-on-demand the law of the land. This year also marks the 45 years since what is arguably the most courageous act in pop culture history. In the early 1970s, the Texas-born Jim Seals and Dash...

Promoted to Heaven

It was June 13, 1965. We were called Peninsula Baptist Church back then. There hadn’t been a senior pastor yet, only an interim pastor. The ink had hardly dried after the October signing of a founding declaration by 33 people, giving birth to Peninsula. The church was...

Silent Night

As the sun sets tonight, we celebrate something special. A couple of things, actually. We remember the birth of Jesus, the arrival of the Son of God. May we never tire of telling His story. But there is something else to remember tonight. Two hundred years ago, a song...

Glory Collided with Tragedy

Christmas is very different in my house these days. We certainly don’t celebrate Christmas the way we did 20 years ago. I mean, we have a couple of Advent Calendars at the house, and I don’t think we touched them once this month. There used to be a mad dash to the...

Jury Duty

I spent the week in and out of a courtroom. Literally. It was about half and half, actually. We all know the pain of Jury Duty, and I used to think that worst role is to end up is as an alternate. You get to sit through everything, not talk about anything (ever) and...

Living As If Friday Isn’t Available

Weird weeks can teach you a lesson. This week was weird. And I’ve learned something, too. I’ve been on Jury Duty. In Inglewood. Now, I haven’t had to go in yet (it is Thursday and I have one more shot at fulfilling my civic duty). So that’s the weird part. All week, I...

Conspire With Us

The calendar has given us some margin this year. At least so it seems. With Thanksgiving falling on the earliest day possible, we have the most days possible between the fluid date of Thanksgiving and the fixed date of Christmas. It kind of felt like a week of margin...

An Email of Encouragement

Not often enough, I get an email like the one found below. I just have to share the encouragement. We have met several times over the years, but I would forgive you if you didn’t put a face with this name. My wife and I live in Westchester and have come to PCC...

The Table

We will gather around a table this week. So much happened around a table in the Bible. Abraham met strangers. The Passover in Egypt. David almost lost his life. Jesus shared His last meal. The early church learned to be inclusive. And some day we will celebrate the...

Pray for Those who Serve Our Country

This weekend, the United States celebrates its annual observance of Veteran’s Day. It began in 1919, the first anniversary of the end of WWI. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938....
