Audio Article

My favorite children’s show on TV was “Our Gang” featuring Spanky, Alfalfa, and Buckwheat with a host of others. I wonder if I might have turned out different if I had grown up with the gang on Captain Kangaroo or Sesame Street instead. They say that our early childhood development is most important and that everything in those early years […]

I once had a sizable personal library of books related to Christian ministry. In seminary I obtained a list of the names of reliable conservative authors and I was always on the lookout for good deals at book stores and even garage sales. One of my favorite and most helpful authors was Dr. Charles Stanley, past president of the Southern […]

When I get an inspiration for a Spiritually Speaking, I do not always know where it will take me especially if the inspiration comes from a suggestion made by Peggy.

We can’t be right with God unless our motives are right

Audio Article

Have you ever done something good just because you could and it was the right thing to do? Then have someone question your motive?

The fourth is our nation’s 246th birthday and the fifth is mine and Peggy’s 59th anniversary as husband and wife. When I think of the 246 years of our […]

I pray that God forgives us as a nation

For the last few days the Supreme Court rulings handed down on Friday June 24, 2022 and the ruling previously handed down on Jan. 22, 1973 by the same branch of our government have been on my mind.
