September 6, 2012

          As I begin writing this newsletter (Sat., Aug. 25th) we are keeping an eye on the local weather forecasts monitoring the track of Tropical Storm Isaac.  For the most part it seems that this meteorological event won’t be too terrible for our region.  That being said, those of us...

Two Choices In Three Illustrations

August 5, 2012

Jesus often used parables (stories/illustrations) to make important points.  In this month’s newsletter, we have three illustrations that I believe clearly and poignantly address critical issues concerning contemporary views on the atonement, the gospel, and the person of Christ. The Atonement—Example or Essential…A man and his wife were walking on the shore of a...

True Freedom

July 17, 2012

Freedom.  One simple word wrought with so much meaning.  As Americans we enjoy the freest society on the face of this earth, a fact for which we should be thankful.  I have spent much time over the years speaking about America and its Christian heritage and my appreciation for both has not diminished in...

Fatherhood In The Lord’s Prayer

June 15, 2012

One of the dominant images of God in Scripture is that of Father.  I have known this for many years, but my appreciation and understanding of this divine picture has been enhanced exponentially since I became an earthly father in 2008.  The love I have for my son has helped me know better the...

May 30, 2012

             Gaither videos, The Food Channel, and cable news programs constitute a very high percentage of the television time allowance in the Strunk household.  Now, to be honest, we’re not always hanging on every word (unless it’s those glorious Gaither videos).  Many times, the television serves as little more than background noise.  Such was...

Undercover Boss

April 14, 2012

       A few weeks ago my dad told me about a television show he had seen one Friday night called “Undercover Boss”.  The episode he watched had the CEO of Popeye’s Chicken (and Biscuits—we dare not forget the biscuits; those wonderful, buttery, flaky, tasty, heavenly, glorious…biscuits!) disguising herself as a common unemployed laborer searching...

Where I Met Jesus

March 24, 2012

It’s been nearly 20 years now since I left the warm, sunny shores of Florida to attend seminary in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Being an only child, a homebody, and very much a mama’s boy, the reality of being more than a thousand miles away from family to pursue God’s calling was a proposition wrought with...

Recommendations For Love

February 24, 2012

A couple of days ago, as oft is the custom at the Strunk house, we found ourselves watching one of the cable news channels.  They took a break from the “hard news” of the day in order to have a special interest segment on marriage.  The spot began with the anchor citing the woeful...
