Take Time to be Holy, Be Calm in Thy Soul.

Take Time to be Holy, Be Calm in Thy Soul.

Take a moment to reflect upon the words from the fourth stanza of this profound hymn: Take time to be holy, Be calm in thy soul; Each tho’t and each motive beneath His control; Thus led by His Spirit to fountains of love, Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above As Thanksgiving and Christmas […]

Thank You!

We were just finishing up the delicious Crabtree Café chicken and dumplings that Beth Jenkins had prepared on October 27, when we were totally surprised by Jean Glosson’s announcement that this occasion was the beginning of a Pastor Appreciation month.  She followed the announcement with her creative poem in honor of Gloria and me.  We […]

Are You Involved in God’s business?

Are You Involved in God’s business?

As we were driving […]

In the Garden

In the Garden

One April day in 1912, Austin Miles, a pharmacist and publishing editor, opened his Bible to the Gospel of John Chapter 20 where the resurrected Jesus appeared to Mary as she stood at the empty tomb crying. As he read the story he seemed to be transported to that very spot as a silent witness […]

God Made Man a Keeper of Earth

God Made Man a Keeper of Earth

An article in “The Atlantic Daily” caught my attention as anything Brazilian always does. You don’t live in a country 14 years without having an interest in what goes on there. I was attracted to the article because of the raging fires that are destroying the life-giving Amazon Forest. The article said, “The Amazon Rainforest […]

Where Was God In All of This?”

Where Was God In All of This?”

Once again a catastrophic hurricane with almost unbelievable, devastating force has left billions of dollars of damage, thousands homeless, untold numbers dead, inconsolable survivors overwhelmed with grief, many injured without immediate medical attention, others trapped without water, food or shelter and a vast population left in shock from the hardest hit Bahamas all the way […]
