There is a tension…

by pfc_editor

….between you and the Gospel. Hard to believe, isn’t it? However true, especially by nature of the term. Gospel means “good news”… implying we need it. Difficult when we mean it on religious terms. I first need to acknowledge I am lost before I can be found, or blind and now see. In a recent […]

Indifference and the Resurrection: An Alarming Seduction  

by pfc_editor

Since the beginning of the year, I have conducted an unusual number of funerals. Each family represented various stages of grief, shock and pain. As pastor, my chief role is to bring hope and comfort. Jesus’ words, “let not your heart be troubled…neither let it be afraid,” are words from Heaven itself. However, Jesus predicated […]

I am not …

by pfc_editor

…..settling for less this Christmas! The usual desire for more things on a “wish list” I was hoping to fulfill leaves me disappointed or disillusioned, and the deepest meaning of “Christmas” escaping me. I want more. The truths of Christmas are deep but not beyond grasp. Matthew and Luke give us the facts: Joseph, Mary, […]

Hope deferred…makes the heart sick

by pfc_editor

The verse continues, “But a longing fulfilled is a tree of life” (Proverbs 13:12). We live a life of faith. That doesn’t mean a reckless, careless, blind approach to living. Rather a hope-filled trust/reliance upon promises that the Lord desires to “make happen.” Pastor Cathy and I are experiencing part A of the passage. Since […]

I am Guilty

by pfc_editor

Procrastination is most definitely deceptive. This action of the soul likes to hide behind excuses. Until the Lord searched my heart…(by my invitation i.e. prayer) I was quite comfortable allowing this flaw to steal away precious and valuable time from my life. James 4:2b “…you do not have, because you do not ask.” Or as Rick […]

Halftime?

by pfc_editor

That’s right, the year 2017 is half over. Hmmm, how are we doing? What has surprised you or challenged you? How are the New Year resolutions coming along? (smile) Are you getting through the rough spots or smoothing the jagged edges? Hopefully you are ahead in the game. If not, all the coaches have a […]

Enough

by pfc_editor

When is it enough? Popeye (cartoon character) seemed to know. “I have had enough and enough is too much.” Or “I have had all I can stand, I can stands no more…” We seem to evaluate that equation more often than not. Is this enough…exercise, food, sleep, money, room, color, clothes, (just try to keep […]

Vision Testing

by pfc_editor

I remember the day I discovered the need for glasses. I was 15 years old, just coming up to the sixth month mark, and I would be eligible to take a class called “behind the wheel.” A whole world of independent opportunity was within my grasp the day I got my driver’s license. One problem, […]

The Great Exchange…

by pfc_editor

He who knew no sin, became sin that we might become the righteousness of God! No wonder this is the greatest story ever told. We celebrate “the moment” He laid down His life for us! We invite you to join us this Friday @ 6:30pm as we “remember”! See You in Church, Pastor Greg
