The Gospel for the Rest of Us

Some of y’all may remember the name Jim Fixx. He quite literally wrote the book on running in the 1970s. It was published in 1978. It was called, The Complete Guide to Running. He was world renown for his expertise on not only his times but also how he ran and how he taught people to run. But one day he was out jogging on a road near his home...

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

Full disclosure! Shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but I’m not too much of a reality TV guy. If you are, it’s okay, not judging, but one show that did catch my attention a few years ago was the show, Undercover Boss. And the whole premise of the show was the boss, the CEO of a multimillion dollar corporation, everything from Subway to Circle K, Burger King, would...

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

We all have those favorite Christmas movies. One of the favorites around the Fluhrer household is Elf, about the story of Buddy the Elf who comes to our world. And there’s this great scene in the movie where he’s this real elf from the North Pole and he comes across a department store Santa, which always scare kids, and this one’s no exception. And he thinks it’s the real...

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

One of the great actors of the last generation that many of you will know is Robert Redford. He was one of those heart-throbs. Everybody loved him. And when he was at the peak of his success, he was noticed by a woman in a hotel lobby – and he was one of those guys who was voted “Best Looking Man Alive” like twenty-six times or something like that –...

Chapter 3

The Gospel for the Rest of Us

Something Callie and I were laughing about the other day, or this just may be way too silly, but ridiculous nursery rhymes. Okay? So one of them that we all know is, “Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop…” Now I am a fairly young dad, but I’m pretty sure in all the “Parenting 101” books I read there was never a suggestion nor a direction to get kids to...

James 3:1-2 Warning to Aspiring Teachers

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to James chapter 3 as we continue through this book.

In the end of James, chapter 1, he talked about how to tell the difference between someone who...
