On behalf of the church, I’m sorry. This is what I wrote to a friend last night. I never thought I would need to apologize on behalf of the body of Christ but yesterday it was necessary. One of my old friends, (we’ll call him Steven), has walked away from Christianity. Steven looks at it as anti-intellectual and shared that he grew up in a church where he was never allowed to pose seriously questions… … Continue reading

Trusting God during the storms of life. This is Katie and her husband. They are faithful WAY-FM listeners. I met them at a WAY-FM show this weekend and Katie shared that WAY-FM was her lifeline a few years ago when she was diagnosed with cancer. She is so young, so full of life, I can’t imagine how hard that time was when she learned that she had to battle such a deadly disease. She said… … Continue reading

Give a child a chance to not only survive, but to grow up and change their country! It didn’t look like much. Just a fence built on a hill with some crosses above it, but I quickly found out that this hill holds pain for so many in Haiti. After the earthquake there were so many bodies that they had to have mass burials. This is one large grave outside the city for so many… … Continue reading

Hunger. I think it’s something we all rarely experience unless we choose it, but for many people in Haiti, hunger is their normal state. I learned today that most people in Haiti, if they are lucky, eat one meal a day! Just one! If I don’t have three meals a day then my stomach lets me know that it’s angry! Imagine you are a parent with several children and today is your third day in… … Continue reading
