Another journey is beginning. Last November, I talked about us taking a journey to Bethlehem to celebrate the birth of Christ. We took part in advent Sundays as we lit candles and talked about hope, peace, joy and love. Each Sunday we were able to focus on one word that would allow us to experience […]

Over the past two weeks I have talked about two things that I believe are important for the church to do if we are going to be the church God has called us to be. One is to be a church that worships in spirit and truth. The other is to be a church that […]

In last week’s article, I began talking about some of the things the church should be doing. These are things we are presently doing, but also things we might be able to do better. Last week I talked about how the church should be a church that worships, both as individuals and also as a […]

As you know, during this month I am focusing my Sunday and Wednesday messages on the church. Specifically, the seven churches written about in the book of Revelation. Jesus wanted the churches to be encouraged, yet be challenged. It is important to feel you are doing what you should do, but more important to be […]

One question some have asked me as I have pastored churches is “are you a New Testament or Old Testament preacher?” Well, the answer to that question depends. I have never thought much about it because I just preach from the passage or passages I feel God is laying on my heart to preach. I […]

This past week, there were several days when I sat at my hospice desk thinking about the future. I don’t normally do this, but this week I did. I thought about the fact that I am in my fifth year with my current hospice company. I thought about the fact that I am no longer […]

Our family took the down time this week-end to put together a 550 piece puzzle. We started on Thursday evening and finished up Sunday afternoon. We didn’t do it all at one time. Instead, when someone felt the desire to work on it, they spent time at the table working. They would work a while […]

I hope everyone was able to stay safe and warm during our snow/ice event this past weekend. I love the way the ice looks on the trees, but don’t like the risk of driving on it. I’m glad we were able to have time to make decisions as to what to do before the weather […]

We are a week into the new year and I feel the need to ask you, “how are your resolutions going?” Are you working on keeping the resolutions you made, if you made them? I will admit I made my annual “get healthier and feel better” resolution for this year. So far, I have done […]

I remember taking trips with my parents when I was really young. At that age, I was not aware of the time it was taking to make the trip. The only words I seemed to know were, “are we almost there yet?” My father would say the same thing each time I asked the question: […]
