War On Christmas, Family matters, Christmas

Those of us who were raised in the Church know the narrative of Christmas, the story of Christ and his life and ministry forwards and backwards.  It’s often brought up in teachings, studies and sermons that so many of the people who lived in the same day and age as Jesus missed the boat on […]

Good Friday Golf :: A Metaphor

Family Matters, Easter, Good Friday, Golf, Dr. Tim Kimmel

Friday.  Late morning.  Approximately 11:45a.m.  Mount of Olives Country Club.  The two dignitaries stood side by side studying the 14th hole.  It was a mild dogleg left about 346 yards from the blue tees. From their vantage point they could see the Beautiful Gate into Jerusalem just beyond the KidronValley.  Dazzling sunlight, the only bright […]

innkeeper, christmas, family matters, grace

  Christmas is ahead of us, and I feel like I need to speak out on a very important issue. It’s time for this “War on Christmas” to be over. No, I’m not talking about keeping Christ in Christmas, (or, if you will, keeping the X in Xmas.) It is time to stop despising the […]

Selfies with Jesus

Written by:   |  Found in: Other  |  No Comments »

If you could slip through a time warp to when Jesus was here on earth—and take your iPhone or Droid along for the ride—I think it would be hard to resist the temptation to snap a few selfies with the Saviour.   Selfies are a new phenomenon only because the technology that makes them possible […]

Easter, Family Matters, Darcy Kimmel

  Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord. Luke 19:38   As Easter approaches, we are coming to a very holy time of year. If Christmas is the bow and wrappings of our faith then Easter is what’s inside the package.   Somehow though, Easter doesn’t get the same billing […]

  When the crimes against our hearts seem unforgivable, we can take a walk up a hill.  Hurting hearts all over the world have learned the power that is gained by taking this same walk.  We may start in the outback of East Africa, the frozen tundra of Siberia, or the congested sidewalks of Manhattan.  […]

Joyfully Ever After

Ever After, Family Matters, Grace Filled Marriage, Grace Based Parenting, Dr. Tim Kimmel

  I know I’m not supposed to because of all kinds of reasons, but I love fairy tales.   And, I like the versions with beautiful princesses with good taste in shoes and the noble princes who can’t live without them.  German literary superiority has nothing on tiaras and white steeds.  Who doesn’t love a good […]

Grace Filled Marriage, Family Matters, Dr. Tim Kimmel, Darcy Kimmel, Resources

  Grace is the equilibrium we apply to all the conditions and challenges that allow our marital love to improve with age. Grace is the plus sign to all of the negatives inherent to a partnership. Grace is the vintage agent to a covenant love that otherwise becomes flat. Grace is the deal maker in […]

Teaching for Transfer, Edy Sutherland, Dr. Tim Kimmel, Family Matters, Grace Based Parenting

As a winter sports instructor, I embraced the mindset, go where you are needed. Like superman changing outfits in the phone booth, I too regularly changed out of my comfy snowboard boots in to plastic ski boots on request. It would be noble for me to admit my motivation arose out of service to my […]
