This situation is hard to figure out


Even after spending many years in school and traveling the world, I still don’t have everything figured out. Even today, I’m still not sure whose armrest is whose at the theater or on an airplane. I haven’t been able to discern what fruit they use to make Juicy Fruit gum. I still haven’t figured out […]

Teaching youth to be ‘fishers of men’


I spent part of the summer living in the Darien Jungle of Panama in a small Embera village called Ipeti. Three young men and I slept outside in hammocks while the women and other men slept inside a hut. We walked from village to village presenting the Gospel. The dust of the road and the […]

Beating H&H with a Walker Rocker


One of my jobs is to care for students as they travel around the world. Just a few days ago, I came out of the Darien jungle in Panama. I took 18 students to live there for four days of ministry to the Embera people group. We slept in mosquito net-covered hammocks, cooked our meals […]

Prayer vs. Facebook, tats and visitation


As parents we pray diligently for our children, at least until they’re born. We then spend the rest of the time praying for ourselves, “Lord, deliver us from this evil.” I think the prayers of today’s parents may go something like this: Dear Lord, I pray that you keep my child away from all evil, […]

M&Ms at Grandfathers Anonymous


Hello, my name is Walker, and I am a grandfather. Now, each of you must respond, “Hello, Walker.” That is how we will start each meeting when I create the group called GA or Grandfathers Anonymous. I am starting this organization because I am currently in trouble as a granddad. I made it to the […]

Happy Father’s Day to crazy old men


I have spent the last few days traveling with one of my three younger brothers. We haven’t taken a trip together since we were teenagers. This time, I’m hanging out with my oldest younger brother. Our family is very proud of him; he graduated in the top half of the bottom third of his high […]

7 things found only at grandma’s house


As I wrote about my grandmother’s cooking last week, I got to thinking about her house. I loved going to both my grandmothers’ homes. They lived about an hour away from us, and each weekend we would visit. When the summer came, I spent extended time there.  As I was reminiscing, it dawned upon me […]

Evangelism adventure was ‘in tents’


You know the old saying, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him tap dance”? That’s how I felt when I was approached by a traveling evangelist to join his team. Before we had TV, every community had some type of tent meeting when a famous evangelist came to town to […]

Happiness – even without the yogurt


I am probably the only guy who has ever gained four pounds from eating fat-free yogurt. While most people have what they call a sweet tooth, I have been cursed with something called a sweet body. I blame my craving for sweets on my grandmother. She could make cookies, cakes and pies that caused you […]
