How to Have the Perfect Christmas

Every year, millions of dollars and countless hours are spent trying to obtain the perfect Christmas. Even so, after all of the presents are unwrapped and the tree is taken down, we are left with the emptiness of unpaid credit cards and bare bank accounts.  And we wonder why Christmas wasn’t all we hoped it would be.

Striving to be a Faithful Father

My wife, Mimi, and I moved to Montgomery five months ago when I accepted the call to be the new Rector (a fancy Anglican word for “head pastor”) of Christchurch. Mimi was seven months pregnant when we arrived. Thus the craziness of moving to a new city to shepherd a whole new community was profoundly punctuated by the arrival of our first child, a son, Stephen Ebenezer (“Eben”) in June!

The Miracle of Cana

For many years I wrestled with Jesus’ first miracle as recorded in John 2:1–11.  It just did not make sense to me that His very first miracle would be turning water into wine in an out-of-the-way village like Cana of Galilee.  Wouldn’t it have been far better to start with a dazzling miracle like opening the eyes of the blind, or healing the lame, or feeding the 5,000?  But water into wine at a wedding reception…really?  This miracle got under my skin so much that I could not preach on it!
