Yes, I wore a green shirt today.  I also ordered a side of green at lunch (which is not unusual for me).  I have a wife named Shannon and a daughter named Kiley; that’s pretty Irish.  I think I have done my part to make March 17 interesting.  That’s about the limit to my “going green.”

Other than the name St. Patrick I think most of the traditions and stories associated with the day are the stuff of legend.  Very few historians actually agree on much about St. Patrick other than the fact that he is the patron saint of Ireland, that he was actually British, and that there are no snakes on the island (which is a compelling reason for me to consider moving there).  As far as shamrocks, the meaning of green, leprechauns, and luck of it all, no one has the beat on how it all ties together.  Yet I do think that for Christians there are some things we can take from the day to move us forward in our faith.

  1. Pray soberly for missionaries.  Traditionally Catholics in Ireland use this day to pray for missionaries, and then they apparently drown themselves with stout alcohol.  The alcohol grossly distorts the day, but at least in some respects, it begins with good intentions.

    St. Patrick may not have driven the snakes away from Ireland, but most agree that he did bring Christ to the island.  Some say that the driving away of snakes is a metaphor for his driving paganism away from the land with the gospel.  Apparently, the fuller story of Patrick is that he was captured and enslaved by pirates as a boy.  After he was released and returned to Britain, St. Patrick actually made his way back to Ireland as a missionary.

    Minus the alcohol, I do think we can take away from the day that it is important to pray for missionaries.  The heart of God is for the nations to hear and respond to the gospel.  This fact alone should help bring us to sobriety to the subject of missions.  There are many missionaries today that are discouraged and serving in dangerous places.  They need not only supply and support, but they need prayer.  Much of what missionaries do is front-line spiritual warfare stuff.  They are breaking into places of bondage with a message that is antagonistic to darkness.  Their feet are beautiful (Romans 10:15).  Let us pray for and soberly consider our missionaries today.

  2. Don’t drink to a saint, be a saint.  In the Catholic tradition, only select people are saints.  Yet the Scriptures teach us that every born again believer is a saint.  The word “saint” is a personal application of the word holiness.  It means to be set apart for the Lord’s use.  Paul uses the word often in his epistles.  Ephesians 1:1 being an example, “To the saints who are in Ephesus.”  He was not addressing only the best of them with a Word from the Lord, he was addressing all of them.  If we explore “sainthood” as it appears in Ephesians (actually appearing 9x in 6 chapters) we see that it is the saints that do the “work of the ministry (4:12).”  It is in communion with the saints that the Christian grows in his understanding and experience of the love of Christ (3:18).  Thus it is the moral obligation of every Christian, as a set apart, saint, made holy by Christ, to live a sober and Christ-honoring life (5:3).

    It is unfortunate that a day set apart to honor a saint has been marred by so much drunkenness and debauchery, but this is usually the result of the pagan erosion of an otherwise “holi(y)-day.”  It is not the duty of the Catholic saints to be super and for the rest of us to be less than them.  Our standard for living, as Christians, as saints is Christ himself.  St. Patrick’s day should not make us hasten to drink green beer but it should, as any other day, cause us to remember Christ.  Don’t drink to the saints – be a saint.

  3. Don’t dig for a four-leafed weed, just live wisely.  There is something superstitious about St. Patrick’s Day that appears to be silly fun but exposes a flawed theology that I think many people fall prey to.  Apparently St. Patrick used the three-leafed clover to teach the Trinity to the pagans.  Somehow this little green weed has been translated into the symbol for superstitious favor.  Find a four-leafed clover and you’re set for life!

    The Bible teaches that the steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord (Psalm 37:23).  This is not teaching a fatalistic determinism, as in, God has me trapped in my destiny.  Rather it is teaching that the righteous man does what God has instructed him to do.  He makes decisions based on God’s Word.  If you read the Bible correctly, favor and fortune are not tied to luck and superstition.  Fate is tied directly to wisdom, making proper choices based on God’s Word.  If you want to change your stars, forget digging through the weeds this afternoon looking for leaves and start living for the Lord.  If you want things to change don’t try a shamrock, try Proverbs.  Do what the Bible says and see how that changes things.

Whatever you do on this St. Patrick’s day, if you are a child of Christ we should live morally, soberly, and saintly.  Stay out of the weeds and get in the Word!

On last night’s episode of Biblical Conversations on Culture I was joined by my wife Shannon and oldest daughter Morgan for a discussion of NBC’s #1 show, This Is Us. Watch as we discuss aspects of the show that bring out interesting dimensions of family life.

On February 21 Billy Graham passed away at the age of 99. It is estimated that he preached to more than 210 million people in over 180 countries. The numbers of people he spoke to through television and radio are incalculable. In 1996 the LA Times estimated that the crusade airing then on KTLA would reach a global audience of 2.5 billion people by the end of its 30-day run. No person in Christian history, including Jesus and the apostles, has shared the gospel with more people than Billy Graham. 

On February 23 The Wall Street Journal ran a story with the headline asking the question, “Will There Ever Be Another Billy Graham?” Thomas Kidd has written an excellent article posted on the First Things website that echoes the sentiments of many.

No. There will never be another Billy Graham.

As Kidd points out, Billy Graham came at a unique time in American history in which television became the primary mover of media and the culture had a respect for Christianity. Billy Graham was uniquely gifted both in persona and preaching for such a time as this. 

Things have changed. The media industry has fractured into a diverse collection of social and ideological networks all vying for people’s attention. In the current moral climate, the word evangelical no longer gets good ratings. I do not think Billy Graham could do what Billy Graham did in the current cultural context. 

God used one man, Billy Graham, to reach millions with the gospel. Will it ever happen again? I hope not.

We need more.

One man is not enough if we desire to reach millions in what’s now and especially in what’s next.

If God used one man to reach millions with the gospel, can you imagine the greater impact that millions could make by following the example of that one man? We do not need another Billy Graham. We need millions of them.    

What was it about Billy Graham that God can use in the rest of us to preach the gospel to an even greater audience?  


The most common word included in the headlines of America’s media outlets as they began to report on Billy Graham’s passing was the word humble. From Presidents to actors, from reporters to singers, from Catholics to Jews, they all describe Billy Graham as humble. 

Grant Wacker of Duke Divinity School shares a story from approximately 2007 when he and his wife were able to visit Mr. Graham in his home.

“We found him sitting in his easy chair in his study. As soon as he saw us, he struggled to his feet and asked whether we would like some iced tea. After he settled back into the chair, his assistant said, ‘Billy, Grant is writing a book about you.’ Graham responded, ‘Why?’

The Bible is filled with verses about the paradox of humility. Humility is not weakness, but controlled strength. It is through the brutality of humility that Jesus is raised to a place where his name is “the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

In Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, it is the meek that shall inherit the earth. James 4:6 says that God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. On numerous occasions, the Bible affirms that humbling oneself is a powerful means to a God-given end. 

In a social media-saturated society that is about likes and views, we are misguided to think that we need someone else who can garner Billy Graham’s popularity. What we need are millions of Christians with Billy Graham’s humility. Millions who are able to say something powerful, yet not be condescending. Millions who are able to carry on a conversation without engendering an argument. Millions who can do some really radical things like Mr. Graham did such as apologize, admit that you don’t have all of the answers, and be transparent. 

Billy Graham appeared in the top ten of Gallup’s most admired men in the world 61 times.  President Ronald Reagan is at a distant second appearing 31 times. Billy Graham met and prayed with every President of the United States since Harry S. Truman. Billy Graham was called the Pastor to Presidents. 

The Pastor to Presidents also had an enormous impact on prisoners. In fact, Billy Graham was buried in a pine casket built by inmates in Louisiana’s infamous Angola Prison. The casket was lined with material from mattress pads and comforters bought at Wal-Mart. In total, the casket was worth about $215. 

If God used one humble man to make an impact from Pennsylvania Avenue to one of America’s worst prisons, imagine the difference it would make in our current culture if millions of God’s people exhibited Christ-like humility.


 In 1948 Billy Graham was 31 years old. He was transitioning from a Youth For Christ evangelist into running his independent evangelistic association. While holding a crusade in Modesto, California Billy Graham met with traveling partners George Beverley Shea, Grady Wilson, and Cliff Barrows. They drafted an agreement that if followed would help protect each of them from looming temptation and preserve the integrity of the ministry they were seeking to build. A written document was never produced, but the four principles of the agreement have been widely circulated.

The pact included things such as integrity in reporting crowd sizes and the numbers of people responding in meetings, measures of financial accountability, honesty in publicity, and sexual behavior. Each man pledged that he would not travel or be alone in a room with a woman other than his wife. 

The breach of such things as were mentioned in the Modesto Manifesto have been the reason countless preachers and evangelists have fallen during the 60 years Billy Graham’s ministry reached masses of people for Christ. What if more had taken morals as seriously as did Mr. Graham?

Christianity has entered an interesting era in America. Casting off the restraint of the church’s apparent legalism in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s where there was a lack of grace, Christians seem to have entered a new place of grace in which there is no moral restraint. The guy guzzling beer the pub on Saturday night will be leading worship at Re____________ Church on Sunday afternoon. The pastor who tells us to live simply and radically on mission does so under the cover of fabricated fog beneath a half million dollar light and laser display. Church leaders make impassioned pleas to stop sex trafficking but make plans to meet together on Sunday night to watch a movie filled with gratuitous sex. 

If nothing is too far for us there is no difference in us. The foolish thing about current Christianity is that perhaps we have become too obtuse in our liberty to realize that Jesus has called us to morality. If you and I need to be reminded of Jesus’ moral expectations for our lives, ask a person who is not a Christian. They can articulate perfectly what our problem is. We major on forgiveness and have forgotten that we are also called to obey His commands.  

The call of Christ is to come out of the world and redeem it. Billy Graham was effective at this not because he was relevant, but because he was different. People respected what he said because he demonstrated the power of a life set apart for Christ. 

Grace is important, but so is obedience. One cannot truly enjoy grace unless it leads to obedience. In James 1 we are called to be doers of the word. Those who do not are likened to a man who looks at his appearance first thing in the morning and changes nothing. He goes through the day looking disheveled. Everyone notices it but him.

But the man who looks at his appearance in the mirror, which James here calls ironically “the law of liberty” and changes himself accordingly is blessed. This little epistle teaches us a critical lesson. There is no liberty unless there is law. 

We must have a passion for the gospel, but if we do not take Christ’s commands seriously we have no hope of reaching our culture with the gospel. If one man lived a principled, obedient life and reached millions, imagine what millions could do if we did not just claim grace but kept the commands? 


In 1949 Billy Graham held a crusade in Los Angeles, CA. It was scheduled for three weeks. It was extended to eight. On the first night, there were about 6,000 people huddled under a tent which was referred to as the “canvas cathedral.” On the final day of the meeting, nearly 92,000 people filled a stadium. In the days leading up to the crusade, there were over 1,000 prayer groups meeting throughout the city. It is estimated that 350,000 attended the crusade and that more than 13,000 people came to Christ. It was during this crusade that Louis Zamparini, former Olympic athlete and subject of the recent movie and book Unbroken, was born again. 

In response to the crusade, publisher William Randolph Hearst sent out a two-word telegram to newspaper editors across the country that read, “Puff Graham.” It was a directive to cover the story of this rising star of a preacher in LA. It is commonly believed that it was this welcome publicity that put Billy Graham in the national spotlight.  

In July, preceding the November LA meeting, Billy Graham was in Winona Lake, Indiana with a group of evangelists from Youth For Christ. The night before their week-long crusade in Winona Lake began, about 50 men met in the Rainbow Room of the Westminster Hotel for prayer. The prayer meeting went on for hours. Early the next morning, around 3 a.m., Armin Gesswein, a Lutheran pastor and seminary professor stood in the middle of the room and called attention to the fact that Billy Graham would soon be going to Los Angeles.

Billy Graham stood with Bible in hand and knelt in the front of the room. He read from Joel 3:13 and 14, 

“Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Go in, tread, for the winepress is full. The vats overflow, for their evil is great. Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.” 

 The men surrounded Billy and began to pray fervently for the coming crusade. The Spirit of the Lord fell mightily upon the men, particularly on Graham. Many attribute Graham’s success to early publicity, but Graham always pointed to prayer. 

On my weekly Facebook Live show Biblical Conversations on Culture, Scott Lenning, who worked with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association for 19 years, said that when Billy Graham would call into his team he would not ask about fundraising, plans, or progress on preparation. He would first ask about how many people in the city were mobilized for prayer. 

Prayer is a basic discipline of the Christian life. Any Christian can pray. Every Christian should pray. The Bible constantly calls us to pray. If God moved so mightily through one praying man, imagine what God might do if millions of us were calling upon the same Almighty God that those men petitioned in the Rainbow Room of the Westminster Hotel in Winona Lake, Indiana. 


The funeral service for Billy Graham was a fitting reflection of his life and ministry. It was a simple, powerful, presentation of the gospel. Scott Lenning shared with me another powerful statement about Billy Graham. He said, “If you ever heard Mr. Graham speak, you had to consider your salvation.”

In every sermon Billy pointed people to the reality of their sin. The penalty of God for sin. Their need for salvation and the fact that Jesus Christ is the only way to God.

When it came to preaching the gospel, Billy Graham did what others are fully capable and called of doing. If God used one man to share this powerful, but simple saving message that resulted in scores of people coming to Christ, imagine what may happen if millions of people did the same thing. What if millions helped millions more consider their salvation? 


So, will there ever be another Billy Graham? Probably not. I hope not.

I am not trying to be crass as I say this. I understand how God can use one man to stir us all. If there were another Billy Graham, I assure you I would welcome him, but I am not waiting for him. My hope is not that there would be another Billy Graham, but that there would be millions of them who come after him.

Why not me? Why not now?

I can seek to be humble, moral, prayerful and share the gospel as often as I can now. Imagine what may happen if millions of us did not wait on that next man, but we seek rather to do what the last man did – humbly, morally, and prayerfully share the gospel with our audience.

Studies show that amongst Americans mental health issues are on the rise while options for treatment are on the decline. Rising insurance costs, lack of mental health coverage, lack of trained mental health professionals, and the closing of mental health facilities across the country have resulted in limited access and massive wait times for those in need of treatment. The average wait time in the ER for mental health patients in the state of Georgia is 52 hours.  The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 20% of the teen population suffer from mental, behavioral, or emotional disorders, yet only 7.4% of them report having visited a mental health professional for treatment. 

With so many suffering and so little resources available, both the CDC and WABE report that people suffering from mental health issues are turning to community-based services such as school counselors, emergency room physicians, and law enforcement. These agencies are ill-equipped and overwhelmed.

I would like to add, so are pastors and churches.

While people have always turned to their churches in times of crisis, consistent with the data being used in the news, I see far more issues of mental health in the church now than I did when I began serving as a pastor 21 years ago.  

That being said, what I would like to do with this post is offer some reflections, instructions, and perhaps answer some questions of the growing mental health crisis in our country as it relates to the church. 

Much of what is called mental illness stems from a lack of mental toughness.

Mental illness is a very real thing. The Bible teaches us that because of sin, we not only have broken bodies, but we also have broken brains (Romans 5:12, Colossians 3:5, Psalm 38:1-11). We are all born fallen and flawed. 

According to the American Psychiatric Association, mental health is what it takes for us to function well in society; to be able to do such things as make decisions, have relationships, deal with stress, and cope with adversity. Mental illness is a term used to describe a disruption in a person’s ability to do those things. Mental illness can cover a range of issues from depression to dementia, from anxiety to schizophrenia, from eating disorders to bipolar disorder. There are numerous symptoms that range in severity, and just as the case is with our bodies, mental illness is treatable.

So when I say that much of mental illness stems from a lack of mental toughness, I am not making light of it. But I do think there is something about American culture in which we have become reluctant to cope with life and far too willing to chalk it up to a disorder. 

Life can be depressing. That does not mean you are depressed. Life presents us with many anxious moments. That does not mean that you suffer from anxiety. I think it is easier for some people to say they have ADHD than it is for them to do the hard work of paying attention. 

All of us face hardship, fight with ourselves and deal with idiots. We all think weird thoughts. We all have horrible days. The stress of it all is tremendous, but too many of us expect life to be perfect. We want no tension. We want everything to work out as we planned it. We do not welcome difficulty – we want a magic pill that makes us immune.

Truth is there is no amount of counsel nor a prescription that will bring healing when the problem is simply that you don’t want to deal with it. That is not called treatment. That’s called codependency and drug abuse.

We need to become reacquainted with the Biblical call to do things like suffer, endure, repent, release, and sacrifice. 

I think the question asked by Jesus to the lame man at the pool at Bethesda in John 5 is applicable to us. The man believed that if he could get in the pool as it was stirred by an angel that he would be healed (John 5:8). The Bible says that “He had already been there a long time.” The chronological note here adds to the tension of the story and demonstrates the sincere desire of the man. In that context, I think Jesus’ question seems a bit redundant. “Do you want to be healed?” Well . . . of course I do Son of God . . . how is it that you don’t know that?

Why does the all-knowing ask?

I can’t prove it, but my opinion is that Jesus’ question perhaps points to the presence of others on the pool deck who have no intentions of ever going for a swim. They have no intentions of getting well.

I see this often as a pastor. And I know that I may catch some flack for saying this, but there are people who wouldn’t know what to do with themselves if they didn’t have serious problems. It is as if they had rather stay sick than ever get better. Otherwise, they would have nothing to talk about.

People want to share their problems, but they don’t want to dive into the solutions. They want you to sympathize, but never consider your counsel. They want you to care. They do not want to cope. This is not a mental illness, this is a lack of mental toughness.

Furthermore, I think people who lack mental toughness and use it as a crutch are a detriment to those who really are struggling with mental illness. Those who lack mental toughness consume valuable resources and further strain a system that needs to be devoted to those dealing with mental illness.

It is not a failure of faith for a Christian to seek treatment for mental illness.   

Even though modern psychology has developed a highly nuanced language to more accurately describe the mental struggle of humans; the emotions, fears, and expressions of mental illness are not foreign to the Bible. King Saul, whose story is told in 1 Samuel, was a man of rampant mood swings. One moment he was praising David, the next he was trying to attach him to the wall with a spear. 

In Psalms 42 and 43 Korah asks “Why are you so downcast, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me?” In poetic language, he speaks to that part of his depressed self that he does not understand. He cries day and night and gets little sleep.

Anxiety is addressed no less than 15 times in the New Testament.

Jesus’ marquee sermon, The Sermon on the Mount, begins by promising the poor in spirit the Kingdom of Heaven. 

God has been dealing with humans far longer than we have. It is refreshing to know that God saw fit that the broken emotion of the human condition to make its way into the stories, songs of worship, and sermons recorded in inspired Scripture.

In reading these passages it is a common misinterpretation to believe that those suffering from chronic mental illness simply do not have enough faith. Just because the Bible says “to be anxious for nothing” does not mean we can simply stop it.

On several occasions in meeting with people, I have recommended that they visit a trained counselor, psychologist, or psychiatrist. Some have interpreted my recommendation as if I am saying that faith is not enough for them; as if I do not believe God can heal them. That is not at all what I believe.

I would first recommend an excellent article, written by Eddie Kaufholz, appearing on the website for Relevant Magazine entitled Does Going to Therapy Mean I Have a Lack of FaithEddie gives a wonderful description how it is always God’s act of healing even when we visit a physician or a trained mental health professional.

Secondly, I would point out that God has created humans not only spiritual, but physical, mental, emotional, and sexual. There are a lot of layers to who we are and they are all intertwined. The Bible captures this hodge-podge of who we are with the word “soul.” Some would say that God created man body, soul, and spirit and they point to Genesis 2:7 in defense. I get what they are saying, but seeing man in trichotomy fails to capture what the Bible means when it uses the word soul, especially in Genesis 2:7. Notice the text. The Bible does not say that God gave man a soul, nor does it say that He was created with a soul. The Bibles says rather that God formed the man’s body, breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and he “became a living soul.”

Man doesn’t have a soul. He is a soul.

As such, it is those interconnected layers that make us what we are. This is why a psychologist may recommend that you get more exercise. This is why your physician may prescribe you a medication that helps with symptoms of anxiety but also recommend that you see a counselor. This is why your pastor may tell you to see your doctor and your counselor and it not be a failure of your faith. It is God who has made us who we are and it is in His grace that He has given us various means to treat troubled souls.

The church needs to be better prepared for the mentally ill both in compassion and in counsel.

If there is anything positive in what is happening with our growing crisis of mental health it is that the stigma of mental illness is beginning to fade. Perhaps one of the reasons the numbers are growing is because people sense that there is more freedom to share what they feel.

As a pastor, I sense that the church is doing a better job of dealing with the issue of mental illness theologically. We are addressing it more and more in sermons. We are seeing it mentioned more in our small group curriculums. Because there are more of us dealing with it, people are talking about it in the course of conversation and finding the support they need in brotherly love. We need to continue to foster this compassion. 

The way Pastor Rick Warren openly addressed the loss of his son to suicide was a landmark moment in raising awareness and acceptance in the church concerning mental illness. If you have not watched the sermon series sparked from this moment, How to Get Through What You’re Going Through, it is well worth your time. (

Compassion is helpful, but we also need to offer counsel. I took a few pastoral counseling classes in my undergrad and master’s level work, and while these fall far short of clinical counseling, they help. I am always reading and learning, seeking to become more of a help for people. As the burden of helping the mentally ill grows in communities and churches, I think it is imperative that churches train concerned people in their congregation how to coach, support, and counsel. If nothing else, these people may offer the bridge of support the hurting need while they wait for professional services to become accessible. 


In some form or fashion, because of sin, we are all broken. If not, just wait, you are breaking. When things within you begin to fall apart, realize that God has created you fearfully and wonderfully. As such, we can be assured that He has not forgotten you, but also realize that you may not be an easy fix. You need prayer. But faith does not exclude the professional disciplines.

We have a growing problem, but I have full confidence that as awareness grows, we will get better at dealing with the issue. The good news is that mental illness is coming closer to home. The days of sending people away are coming to a close. The Bible calls us to love our neighbors as ourselves – mentally ill and all.  


Do you have an experience with mental illness you would like to share? How did you help or how did you get help? As the issue comes more to the forefront of our awareness, what are some community and church-based solutions you feel would be helpful? How can churches become more involved? Please share.
