Gloria and I were watching a news broadcast recently when she asked me, “Did you hear that?”  It just so happened that I was looking up something on my iPhone at the moment and I responded, “no, what did he say?” I heard the voice of the news anchor but because I was distracted by […]

It doesn’t take a wild imagination to feel their fear. But God had a solution for their dilemma. He told Moses, “stretch […]

Valuable Resources

Valuable Resources

The Bible and the Church Hymnal are two valuable resources to use in your quiet time with God.  Regular Bible reading and study are essential to our spiritual development, our understanding of God and the life that He wants us to live.

Face the Future Without Fear

Face the Future Without Fear

December is past. The year 2019 is history. The New Year is a story to be written with challenges to face. Reflecting upon what happened just in the month of December, I loved our Christmas worship with gifted musicians blessing us with beautiful music.
