Asking, seeking, knocking

In the Sermon on the Mount, we hear Christ Jesus’ counsel: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Matthew 7:7).

Be a role model in the driver’s seat

With my youngest son 15 years old and itching to drive, I’ve been thinking about what I’d do differently from how I taught my older two sons to drive. There are some specific things I know I’ll stress more (how to change a tire, for one), but ultimately, I realize that the most influence I have on him is in how I drive right now, and in the way I’m role modeling everything about driving a vehicle, maintaining it and approaching the open road.

Heading toward ‘home’ during Lent

I was taken home from the hospital as a newborn to a little house that sat by a bubbling run. The run then flowed into the beautiful Juniata River on the west end of Lewistown. Our house had a living room, an eat-in kitchen and two bedrooms. For the first five years of my life, it was “home.” It sat recessed from the street level and had the feeling of a little paradise — especially when the neighbors put out their huge garden right beside our home. Like most children, I naturally felt compassion for animals. So one day I decided to free a beautiful bunny from a trap in the middle of our neighbors’ garden. I guess I’ve always leaned toward grace. The neighbors didn’t share my feelings for some reason.
