A favorite C.S. Lewis quote

"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." ― C.S. Lewis ― 

Happy Birthday!

It's hard to believe, but today is my first child's 21st birthday! Time flies.

I remember that Sunday morning on the campus of Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary in Taytay, Philippines, when Tamara woke me up telling me she was in labor. Not realizing what the day ahead would have in store for us, I called Doug, the pastor of International Nazarene Fellowship, and told him I could not lead music that morning as planned.

We called the midwife who was walking with us through our first pregnancy. She came and did an initial exam.

"You've got a LONG way to go," she told us, "so settle in and fill up that kiddie pool with hot water."
