Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word – Greg Albrecht

What've I got to do to make you love me? What've I got to do to make you care?—Sorry Seems to Be The Hardest Word, Elton John, 1976 Unrequited love normally brings to mind memories of romantic, "puppy love" that failed to hear an echo. But teenage infatuations that end in agonizing, emotional dramas are surpassed in intensity by the crushing heartbreak experienced when, for some reason, a parent or child fails to respond to each other. This is a story of a girl and the relationship she yearned to have with her father. Like many others in her generation, Karen grew up in a home ruled over by an authoritarian veteran of World War 2. Karen, ...

Fatherhood

Fathers just barely came out on top in a survey of 6-year-olds who were asked which they'd miss most:  their favorite TV program or their father.  In this age of a typical child-man media father that answer is tragic.  But that's not the kind of Father God is. https://www.ptm.org/mp3/FreeDwnld/PTR0224.mp3

Bargaining with God by Greg Albrecht

Friends and Partner Letter from June 2014 The chief object of education is not to learn things; nay, the chief object of education is to unlearn things. – G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) The first serious conversation most of us ever have with God is when we realize we are in a world of hurt. Our back is against the wall – we have painted ourselves into a corner and we desire to have a heart-to-heart talk with God so he will get us out of the mess we’re in. Typically, the first time we wanted God to really listen to us was also when we offered him a bargain. Do you remember? Perhaps the first serious discussion you had with God was ...

Spitting Into the Wind – Greg Albrecht

Call me the "Quester." I've been king over Israel in Jerusalem. I looked most carefully into everything, searched out all that is done on this earth. And let me tell you, there's not much to write home about. God hasn't made it easy for us. I've seen it all and it's nothing but smoke— smoke, and spitting into the wind. Life's a corkscrew that can't be straightened, a minus that won't add up. I said to myself, "I know more and I'm wiser than anyone before me in Jerusalem. I've stockpiled wisdom and knowledge." What I've finally concluded is that so-called wisdom and knowledge are mindless and witless—nothing but spitting into the wind. Much ...
