Thankful for the Fleas (2015)

The barracks where Corrie ten Boom and her sister Betsy were kept in the Nazi concentration camp Ravensbruck were terribly overcrowded and flea-infested. They had been able to miraculously smuggle a Bible into the camp, and in that Bible they had read that in all things they were to give thanks, and that God can use anything for good. Corrie’s sister Betsy decided that this meant thanking God for the fleas.


There are a lot of traits one might wish upon pastors and church leaders. Holiness, selflessness, humility… but I find that most of them embody such traits. They are good and Godly people. But I would wish them to become more aggressive.

"Word" of the Year

In a single image and a single designation, is one of the greatest reflections of the massive change in culture – and the separation of generations – of our day. And it also happens to be Oxford Dictonaries' Word of the Year.


There has been much news related to church and culture of late; obviously the usual fodder for many of my blogs. Three things have kept me from commenting on – what some of you have pointed out – I should have. So how about a few soundbites to catch up?

Cheapening Grace, Part Three

So what does it mean practically when we cheapen grace? There is an interesting case study in the New Testament in one of the letters written by the Apostle Paul to the church at Corinth related to an incident of cheap grace.

Cheapening Grace, Part Two

Grace and truth go together. They are inextricably intertwined. If you take away truth, you don’t have grace anymore.

Cheapening Grace, Part One

Grace is the most distinctive idea within the Christian faith, but it is also the most controversial. It is what attracts people the most, but is also the stumbling block over which many fall. It drew thousands to Jesus during his life, but also nailed Him to the cross.

Pastor's Appreciation Month

October has been designated “Pastor Appreciation Month.” But what I thought of most throughout the month was a different kind of pastor’s appreciation. My appreciation, as a pastor, for what I get to do.

Ghosts Skew Better

Like many Europeans, Marianne Haaland Bogdanoff, a travel agency manager in Norway, does not go to church, except maybe at Christmas, and is doubtful about the existence of God. But she believes in ghosts. Even calling in a clairvoyant to solve some troubling supernatural occurrences which were happening in her office. She’s not alone.

Hitler's Return

It’s been more than 70 years since Adolf Hitler, the infamous Nazi leader, shot himself dead in a Berlin bunker. Yet in the new film, “Look Who’s Back,” his return is explored. In Germany, no less.
