Last night, the Washington Nationals completed an unlikely run from wildcard team to World Series champions. Living in our nation's capital for 30 years, this made me one very happy fan. But it also caused me to think about the larger issue of winning and losing in life.

All of us have ups and downs. Whether individually or as a family, some periods in our lives are harder than others. Life is difficult for everyone, even those who seem to have it all. So, how do we handle winning?

I woke up early today and headed over to Labcorp to have my quarterly blood work drawn. Although a routine part of life for a diabetic, my eyes grew wide when the screen popped up indicating the need for four vials of my blood. Not just small vials, but vials the size of a man's index finger.

With my usual bravery and calm demeanor, I grimaced and looked away out the window. Although I tried to think of something funny, nothing came to mind.

After a minor stick and less than a minute, my proficient phlebotomist had her...

Excerpt from The Accidental Missionary by David Bredeman and David L. Winters

Labor Strike in Juliaca and Puno

We drove the rest of the way out of town without further incident. On our drive to Puno, we saw scenes that suggested the strike had ended. Roads mostly looked clear, and people swept up debris in a few spots where there must have been trouble. Everything appeared quiet, or at least returning to normal. Then, somewhere between Puno and Juliaca, we saw people standing in the road and large obstacles strategically pla...

Make no mistake, work is about completing tasks, customer service and operating within a set of guidelines. As we work more on-line, we can find ourselves feeling isolated and alone.

Perhaps the majority of our tasks involve computer screens and information technology systems. So, how do we take God to work in an increasingly technological society.

Love

The difference between Christianity and most other world religions is the emphasis on love. It all started with God's love for us. "But God demonstrates His own love toward us...

The family filed into the into the small three-bedroom ranch five or six at a time. In a matter of moments, the quiet kitchen erupted into bedlam. Men and women, boys and girls mobbed the single, elderly woman who moments before shuffled dishes in and out of the oven. 

Younger ones clamored for Grandma's attention while their parents tried to jump in and help with setting the table, filling up the water glasses and making sure everyone had a napkin at their place.

Cousins got reacquainted in the toy room as they ha...
