What I Want to Be When I Grow Up

Not long ago, I was talking to my boss (at my secular job) and I mentioned missionary work.   My boss looked at me, smiled, and said, “That’s what you want to be… when you grow up, right?”   I smiled and nodded and chuckled to my 62 year-old self.   Yes, LORD, here I […]


It was a rough week. People I love were hurt in a way that only love can hurt. The wound is still so fresh and so deep that writing down the details now in blog for all the world to see would make the wound deeper and hurt more.   But, out of that pain […]

The Cure

It’s June Letter Month at Kinship Radio!   This year’s theme is, “Jesus is the cure.” So, write us a letter, tell us how Jesus is your cure, include a donation of any amount and you will receive an official Kinship Radio First Aid Pack and a CD by Unspoken which includes the song, “The […]

Crocodile Click-Bait

In the early afternoon hours of August 25, 2010, a Let L-410 passenger aircraft owned and operated by Democratic Republic of the Congo airline company Filair was on its final approach to Bandundu Airport when a crocodile illegally smuggled aboard escaped inside the passenger’s compartment, causing the flight attendant and the passengers to rush to […]

The Table

My brother’s special gift to humanity is his ability to cook fish.   It’s always perfectly cooked and he gets the coating thin and crispy, with just the right crunch and not even the slightest hint of greasiness ever. This is not your boxed-fish-stick fish.    Now, I have to admit that there are a […]

God’s Delight

There’s a question on the Kinship Christian Radio Facebook page right now asking, “What is your go-to worship song when you’re feeling overwhelmed?”    It’s an excellent question to ask not only to get a handle on what you like to hear and what lifts up, supports, and encourages you, it’s also a question that glorifies […]

National Day of Prayer

The Way and Being In the Way

As the Official Big-Shot Blog Writer and Editor-in-Chief of the Kinship Christian Radio Blog-o-Sphere Universe, you would think I would be extraordinarily knowledgeable and informed about all things pertaining to Kinship Christian Radio, including (but certainly not limited to) the Twelfth Annual KJLY Women’s Conference held this past Saturday at Hosanna Lutheran Church in Mankato. […]


  Follow.   There’s another one of those “Christian” words we’re not naturally very fond of.    In the context of our culture, it’s far more desirable to be a leader, a warrior — a champion for truth, justice, and all that is good and right while vanquishing the evil enemy’s horrific and nefarious plot […]

The Fable of Muddy-Foot Jake

It started out as an ordinary drive to work last Wednesday.    A light rain was falling from the cold, gray sky. Temps were in the mid-40’s, I suppose, so no threat of the dreaded freezing drizzle common at this time of year in Kinship Christian Radio land. I was on the same road traveling […]
