Exploring the Darkness (Winter 1990)
The great writer, Isaiah, often used words that related to people's experiences throughout history. So, what I would like to speak to this morning is the message of Christmas that this text from Isaiah holds for me. I want to concentrate on verse two of chapter nine which says, "The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light: Those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined."
Forgiveness (Summer 2001)
Before going on a trip, many people read up on the area they are going to visit. I prefer reading fiction. As I was pre-paring for a trip to Germany, I perused my Book Club offerings. One book stood out, The Last Survivor by Timothy Ryback. What caught my eye was Dachau. I knew we were going to that camp and I thought the book would give me some insight.
Roy Bengtson (Spring 2008)
At North Park College, my Uncle Roy had a nickname because he was hit by a car on Foster Avenue. For some friends and family this nickname did not stick. But on my side of the family he has been known as “Uncle Bong.”
