Three Mystery Men

Dear Church Family, Mystery Man #1 Yesterday I walked around a corner in the Cupertino Community Center and there I stood, face to face, with a mystery man. We locked eyes. He smiled. I waved “hello” and then walked to a bench to write a text message. Then “Johnson” (that’s his name) ran up and…

Stars in my eyes (and ears)

Dear Church Family, Lately, every time I turn around, I see and hear about stars. For example, Ethan, Caroline and I just saw the new Star Wars movie. Every song I hear on Pandora Internet Radio references stars falling and twinkling. I even tested this “star phenomenon” and opened up a magazine on my desk…

Dash and Dot

Dear Church Family, I like aphorisms, slogans, sayings of all kinds. One of my favorite three-part sayings relates to our faith. Here it goes: “Christianity is a venture, not an event, a process, not a point in time, a dash, not a dot.” Anyway, I took a run through my neighborhood the other day —…
