Forgiveness? You’ve Got to be Kidding!

Keith, how can I quit resenting people who have ridiculed me or lied to me, etc.? I can’t seem to shake off resentments—even when I pray and want to let them go. When I first read the question I thought, you’re asking the wrong guy. But then I realized that I haven’t harbored a resentment […]

Attitude Check

Keith, when I decided to become a parish priest I had no idea that some people consider ministers as “hired hands” and not colleagues, brothers or sisters on the adventure of living for Christ. My response to being treated as a lackey by some prominent church people is to want to bust them in the […]

The Death Throes of an Omniscient “Helper”

Keith, my college aged kids and my husband claim that I am trying to control them when I offer suggestions-when all I am trying to do is help them. How can I help them see that I want them to make their own decisions?   Ooooh!  That question strikes too close to home. Listen to […]

The Silent Gift of Love

Keith, what is the best way you’ve found to begin to convey the message that they are loved by God to people who are very cognitive and scientifically oriented and don’t even believe there is a God? Recently I ran across the following conversation between a camp counselor and a camper who finally decided to […]

It’s Never Too Late for God’s Kind of Healing

Keith, how does a man get reconciled with his father? I never was close to mine and he is very sick, maybe dying. I’m afraid he’s going to die and we’ll never be close. They tell me not to push the issue now, but if I don’t, I’ll never get closure with him. Any ideas? […]

God’s Motivational Strategy—Splitting an “Adam”

Keith, I’m an ordained minister in a local church. I’ve tried all the programs our denomination has and almost no one in our parish is strongly motivated by them. In fact, most of my congregation seems to want only to float downstream in their canoes—without even ever picking up a paddle.  How do busy people […]

After Easter—Taking Your Faith to the Office

Keith, about two years ago I made a decision to turn my life and my will over to God. And I’m discovering a different way to love in which I am interested in learning how to love people. I read once where you described what happens to you when you tried to take your faith […]

The Need to be Included

Keith, I know this may sound ridiculous, but when you first became a Christian, did you sometimes miss being invited to parties you didn’t even enjoy any more? Oh yeah, and it still happens sometimes.One time a while back two different people called in the same week to ask us for details about a party […]

Theological Language

Keith, the leaders in our church read and discuss the current theological theories of the ancient biblical message. I can’t really understand what they are arguing about, but I know my life has changed a lot. My wife says I’m a different person, and I am very grateful for all that has happened to me. […]

A Tunnel into the Kingdom of God

Keith, I know I drink too much. I am a Christian and I attend church.  I’m even asked to teach classes on the Bible and the history of the church. I always assumed I could quit (drinking) but after two DUI’s, I’m frightened and have backed away from God and my family vacillates between pleading […]

The chapter (in The Edge of Adventure) on prayer gave me several new insights into better ways to communicate with God rather than pray to God. My all day long praying became more responsive. I try to listen more.
