    Mike Yoder—August 27

    Encouraging a Friend in Pain
    Beau Stanley—August 25

    It’s often awkward to try encouraging someone who has just told you about a very difficult trial he’s going through. Finding the right words is not easy when a friend or acquaintance tells you he has lost his job, discovered he has a medical problem, or is experiencing another type of trial.

    Prudes and Meddlers?
    Mike Yoder—August 6

    “Why do Christians seem to be so hung up on the topic of sex?” “Why are Christians so judgmental of how others live when they can’t get their own act together?” Those two frequent charges are sometimes lobbed by outsiders as they look at the Church and its people. Believers may squirm or react. Often we feel cornered. Should we?

    In Avoiding Autopilot, I provided some ideas on how you can engage with your children. Here’s a new idea that you can do while the weather is still nice: plan and complete adventures together as a family. These don’t have to be fancy, expensive, or time-intensive.
