The Search Party

A few weeks ago, Mistie Osterhouse asked me to play with her and a few other musicians at the Gateway House of prayer on a Saturday night. It had been a while since I last picked up my trusty Fender Telecaster, so I needed to replace the strings. I knew I bought five sets of […]

Broken

     A.W. Tozer wrote, “It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until He has hurt him deeply.” Those are difficult words to read and harder to comprehend. Honestly, we don’t want them to be true. But they are. At least that’s been my experience.      My first significant memory of trauma and […]

Invincible Weaklings

I remember the day so very well. It was Sunday, July 4th, 1977, the morning I was asked by my pastor to fill in for him while he was away for the weekend. He knew I was sensing a call into the ministry and wanted to give me my first opportunity to stand in the […]

The He(art) of Letting Go

During my 68 years of life, I have experienced offenses and wounds too numerous to count, situations that required me to forgive, to let it go. That is not so easy to do. I have also caused many offenses and wounds that confronted others with the challenge to let it go. It’s almost humorous when […]

Extravagant Love

It was the summer of 1968. I was 17 and just moved into a rental home on Walnut Street in Bristol, PA with my family. Two doors down lived Nancy B. Keller who was 21 at the time. She was raised in that house. My band, The Midnight Hours used to practice on my front […]

We Need an Anchor

At the end of last summer, my wife Nancy and I were in the Orlando, FL area caring for our son. Because of his recent back surgery, we flew down to stay with him so his wife could return to work immediately. We planned to remain there for two weeks, but on the weekend of […]
