I'll spend $10 to get $1000, but will I spend $1000 to get $10,000?

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I wouldn't think twice about spending $10 in order to get $1000 in return. It's just $10, so even if it doesn't work out, I'm not out much. It's not gambling - the $1000 is all but certain, but still ... just in case. But 100 times return on investment is a good deal! But would I spend that...

Impostor!

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I started with a new language study group a couple of weeks ago to continue studying Italian. The teacher is an Italian woman in Italy, one of my classmates is in Brazil, another in the US, and another I'm not quite sure. The structure is pretty simple - we're reading a book together and then...

A Plague of Judgment?

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Is Coronavirus a plague from God as judgment on a sinful people? Some are sure that it is. Some are pretty confident it's not. Many in the middle tap their finger to their chin and cautiously say, "Could beeeeee ...." Then, in effort to land on one side or the other, we trace the implications...

Cardboard Cutout Audience

Posted by Colby Kinser on

As a baseball fan, this year has been hard. First, there was the delay of the start of the season. Second, once it began, there were no crowds in the stands, which means less energy at a game and no way to go see a game. Third, earlier this year I had received a free pass to home games ... of...

Reminders We Avoid

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Lynne and I painfully watch my mother's battle against dementia continue to lose ground. Indeed all of us have someone close to us who has some profound struggle with atypical daily living, whether it's mental, physical, emotional, or spiritual. Some of us have those struggles ourselves. Many...

Emeth and Hesed

Posted by Colby Kinser on

It doesn't take long at Grace Fellowship for someone to hear me use one or both of these Hebrew words, emeth (truth) and hesed (lovingkindness). These words carry far more than a single English translation can convey. Both words are prominent in the Old Testament, but interestingly...

Campaign Promises

Posted by Colby Kinser on

We are in the midst of a significant election cycle, and therefore we are  being bombarded with campaign promises. I'm not writing to disparage politics, particular politicians, or the political process. It's just the fact of the matter that our mailboxes are filling up, the airwaves are...

Every Case of Atheism is Temporary

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Every case of atheism is temporary. Not a single case will go uncured. The same is true for agnosticism (the view that it is impossible to know God even if He exists). Every person who claims God doesn't exist or that He is unknowable will one day absolutely agree that God not only exists, but...

Take a Breath

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Now that we've been in this a while and all the signs point to many more months of reacting to Coronavirus, now is a great time to take stock. Take some time to do a self-checkup ... "How am I doing physically? Mentally? Emotionally? Spiritually? What have I been neglecting "until this thing...

CSL on C-19

Posted by Colby Kinser on

C.S. Lewis, once again, says beautifully what I've been struggling to put into words. Rather than write my own article this week, I will just include his words on the atomic bomb, but what he said can equally be applied to COVID-19. You can read a full article...
