Good morning: You’ve chosen a card and written inside, “Dear Dad: Happy Father’s Day. Thank you for ____________ .” How will you complete the sentence? Did your dad help you through a particularly tough time? Did he pay your college tuition? Or does something else come to mind which on the surface doesn’t seem like…

Good morning: When is “right” “wrong”? It sounds confusing and contradictory, but it happens. It’s right to tell the truth, but if you speak the truth to hurt someone’s reputation and make yourself look better, it’s wrong in God’s eyes. It’s certainly right to hear God’s Word and to speak to him in prayer, but…

Good morning: If you visit the War Memorial in downtown Milwaukee this week, you’ll see the Field of Flags, 27,316 tiny US flags placed in honor of Wisconsinites who sacrificed their lives in service to the nation from the Civil War to the present. It took countless hours and an entire team of volunteers to…

Good morning: Have you ever hired, or thought of hiring, a life coach? Their purpose is to help a client with various areas of their lives, such as career advancement, dealing with stress, developing positive habits, and nurturing relationships, just to name a few.

Good morning: Around this time of year especially there are many students who would wholeheartedly echo Solomon when he says, “Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body” (Eccl. 12:12).

Good morning: “He is risen!” It’s been two weeks since we celebrated the news of Easter. But does it matter? Has anything really changed? It didn’t seem that way for the disciples. They saw the risen Lord, but apart from that momentary joy, everything else looked much the same. The Jewish authorities were still intent…

Good morning: In our country’s infancy Benjamin Franklin wrote, “Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” He was right. Nothing on earth is certain. A skyscraper which has stood for decades is destroyed in…

Good morning: We know what happened Friday. Last evening we heard the account of Jesus’ crucifixion: the betrayal and pretense of a trial, the badgering of Pilate, the crown of thorns, and finally the brutal execution itself with iron nails driven through the Lord’s hands and feet to hold him to the cross.
