I have great respect for science and appreciate the brilliance and God-given abilities of the men and women who have made our lives safer, more comfortable and healthier through scientific innovations. But my “faith” in science only goes so far. I agree with author/philosopher C.S. Lewis on this matter, “I don’t have enough faith in […]

I wish the very best to all of the Division l Baseball Coaches who begin another season. As exciting as this day is, it’s only the beginning. Ravi Zacharias once said, “Beginning well is a momentary thing; finishing well is a lifelong thing.” As we all meet the challenges of a new day or a […]

Today, I will attend the funeral of a good friend. Recently, during my last visit with him, he knew he would be leaving soon. He talked about family, friends, former teammates and…Heaven. I was reminded once again what is really important in life; our relationship with family members, friends and with God. Sure, it’s very […]

Some baseball historians say that Satchel Paige is the greatest pitcher in the history of the game. Unfortunately, he wasn’t allowed to play Major League Baseball until he was 42! “Satch” had a quick wit and possessed a lot of wisdom. He once asked the rhetorical question, “How old would you be if you didn’t […]

I have spending some time with a good friend who is in Hospice Care. He spends a lot of time alone in his room in a nursing home. Last week he asked me, “Keith, you know I think about when I’m alone here in this bed…What will heaven be like?” C.S. Lewis once said, “There […]

We live in an era of having many “friends,” but few real friendships. In reality, we may have many Facebook “friends” or Twitter followers, but very few, if any, real people that lead to real, meaningful conversations. There’s nothing more important than our relationship with God, family and friends. If you have unwittingly outgrown having […]
