Hooked on a Feeling…?

I woke up the other morning with that song playing in my head! How’s that for “spiritual”?  I would have rather had “hallelujah”!   B.J. Thomas made the song popular back in the “day”.   I know, I know… it probably wasn’t your “day”.  Nonetheless, I had to pursue the question, why the song? It didn’t take long to find the answer.    I heard myself use that word “feel” or…

New Year’s Greetings!

As a child, a year’s passing took an eternity…not so anymore. We all seem to relate to that observation. Whether the desire to linger over a moment longer comes with age…or we are living at a faster pace is fact, we are nudged into the faster lane by life itself. What I enjoy most about the New in New Year is the “re-set” or “re-boot” it affords us. Challenges met with…

I Love You…

Certainly different from my last e-letter entitled “wanna fight?”… Many of you commented on the series “Fighting the Good Fight.” Thank you! It is always our desire to help not only in sound doctrine, but in practical “everyday” issues we face. These three words are captivating! Mostly, because of the energy they bring. When I hear those words, I can climb any mountain,…

Wanna Fight?

As a kid on the school playground, the question came up more than once.  Immediately a decision had to be made.  I mean, the challenge demanded a response.  In a flash, the size, the person, the enemy, and the issue had to be assessed.  Is there a cause?  Am I, or someone I care about being bullied, intimidated or hurting?  Is this worth fighting for? Big brothers fight…

Did You…

…have a family fun filled summer? I sure hope so, and as usual, the days of summer fall faster than the autumn leaves. Speaking of change, our church schedule changes: Beginning the first Sunday after Labor Day  – Sunday, September 9th:      Worship Service is at 10:15 am      Sunday School for all ages at 9:00 am This fall’s start-up marks a milestone!  On Sunday…

The Questions…

We have answers. It is amazing how often the feeling comes up, “I don’t know who to turn to?” You may have had a friend tell you, “turn to God,” “Ask Him.” But you’re really are not sure how to connect with the Almighty, or what that answer might look like. Uncertainty leaves you painfully stuck in a circumstance that is stressing you beyond the breaking point. Pastor…

Good Good Father…

No matter the past or present relationship you’ve experienced with your earthly father, there is an incredible relationship awaiting you, with your Heavenly Father. Contemporary Christian recording artist Chris Tomlin released a worship song called “Good, Good Father,” reminding the Body of Christ who their Father is and what He is like.  (This being Father’s Day weekend,…

Remember…

It is the time of year we remember those who have paid the ultimate price for something we continue to take for granted…our freedom. Remember freedom is costly. It doesn’t come free.  Someone laid their life on the line for the life you and I live.  In particular, we remember those who never picked their lives back up.   Take a moment… remember, thanking God for all you…

There is a tension…

….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 message, I talked about the difference between God as a “concept”…
