To Tofu or Not to Tofu
To tofu or not to tofu? To haystack or not to haystack? The past few weeks the same topic keeps coming up in conversations. Our church has a unique health message.
What Storms May Come
I've had the pleasure of helping clean up after hurricanes. You might be asking right now, "Mr. Rolf, how is cleaning up a pleasure?"

"I want to hear you! I still can't hear you!"
I always laugh a little when I hear that in a sermonette at camporee, but I actually want to hear from you. You don't need to shout so the whole house wakes up but a simple reply would be great. I want to know:
The Beauty of Color
You know, most of us take color for granted. However, there are people out there that cannot see as many colors as the rest of us.
How to Play Sardines
This week's Pathfinder column in Guide magazine briefly talks about playing games on a camping trip. One of my favorite games is Sardines. If you don't know what sardines are they are small fish. They are usually packaged as food in square tins with six to a dozen fish in each little tin. This is important because it comes into the rules of the game.
Travel Honor
It's July and vacation season is in full swing! I had the privilege of traveling a lot when I was younger. Unfortunately, it was rarely what most people would consider vacation.
The Kindness Club
This week's Guide magazine article for Pathfinders launches one of five stories. The stories are all linked as they tell about five different girls who each faces her own trials and tribulations.
Master It!
May and June are typically the time of year that most clubs have an investiture service. Investiture is when everyone "graduates."
Starlight
The mysteries of the universe stretch out into the heavens. Sometimes I imagine that I'm on one of those amusement park rides that spins around really fast and keeps you stuck to the wall. I'll lie flat out on the ground and look up into the night sky. My back pressed to the wall of dirt on a spinning sphere flying through endless space.
Pathfinder Bible Experience Finals
Seventy-nine teams from across North America are the British Union are gather near Morane Valley Community College in Palos Hills, Illinois. This is the site of the 2017 NAD PBE Division Finals on April 22, 2017.
Hold That Line!
This weekend I'm flying out to Seattle to see friends and family, and maybe even some of you. However, I hate flying. I haven't always hated it, but I developed a fear of it over time—and, I believe, a very irrational one.
How's the Weather?
Spring is funny time a year. Stretching across the North American continent this weekend we have everything from steaming hot weather to full-on, raging snowstorms.
LEGO Witnessing
Today is Global Youth Day 2017. As part of that I’m attending a LEGO Convention. Some of you are really going to be shocked by that. But I ask you to take a moment and think about a couple things.
What's In a Name
This month’s article (March 11 Issue) for Pathfinders is titled, "What's in a Name." There are numerous stories in the Bible about God changing people’s names. One of my personal favorites is Saul becoming Paul.
Rolf Holbrook
Look! We've got the facts on Pathfinder blogger Rolf Holbrook.
True Stewardship
This week I had a very odd call. One of my ex-girlfriends from high school called me.
Get an Honor at Camp
My column in this week’s Guide magazine is about the Drawing & Painting Honor and a few weeks last spring that I spent at Chesapeake Union’s summer camp, Mount Aetna Retreat Center.
Experience the Pathfinder Bible Experience
Ever wanted to go on a road trip? How about going with your six best friends? Well strangely enough, you can do this every year as a Pathfinder.
Ride the Distance
January 14 launched a new column in the print magazine about Pathfinders! In the first article I’d like to note a minor correction.
