Feed Your Mind

One of my favorite authors is Gordon MacDonald, pastor, prolific writer of over 24 books, popular public speaker, educator and faithful servant of God. If you are looking for good books to read, books that inspire and challenge you, books with solid, down to earth, practical, thought provoking, spiritually uplifting, insightful illustrations that speak to […]

Love One Another

Love One Another

    Webster defines the word “Fellowship” as “companionship, friendly association, a mutual sharing, a group of people with the same interest, brotherhood. The Church is all of that and more. The Apostle Paul’s favorite metaphor of the church is “The body of Christ.”  We sing, “Bless be the tie that binds, Our hearts in […]

Prayer Power!

Prayer Power!

Prayer Power – It’s a subject that has been on my mind for weeks now.  When I was asked  several months ago to speak at the Sunday Night Vesper Service at Springmoor January 27, I began asking God, “What shall I say?”  The answer came strong and clear, “Speak on Prayer Power.” Over these past […]

Preparing for Worship

Preparing for Worship

I have a Sunday night routine to jump-start my week.  After watching the news, I retreat to my study to pray, work on the worship program for the next Sunday and write my weekly article for the church newsletter “Thought for the Week”.  It is a period of time alone with God that I look […]

Blessings From God

Blessings From God

“How do you describe the beautiful sunset reflecting golden rays on the black waters which reflect like a mirror? How do you describe the still quiet of a jungle so thick you can’t see beyond its edge? There is an awesome beauty and mystery about this part of the world. You can’t describe it. You […]

Life’s Detours

“Church Signs,” a 2019, desk calendar I received for Christmas posts a daily saying taken from selected church signs across the nation. The January 4th saying caught my attention and gave me pause to meditate and think on its message. It said, “If you have an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the […]

Facing the New Year with Faith

Facing the New Year with Faith

When God called Abram to leave his country, his people and his household and “go to a place I will show you,” Abram did not have a clue as to where God was going to lead him, what he would face, or what the outcome would be. Facing the New Year is a similar experience.  […]

HAVE A BLESSED CHRISTMAS!

HAVE A BLESSED CHRISTMAS!

More snow fell in North Carolina in one day (December 9) than normally falls in an entire year.  Meteorologists are saying, “It has never happened like that before.”  As we approach Christmas and the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, we can say that such a birth has never happened […]

Christmas Traditions

Christmas Traditions

It is interesting how Christmas Traditions begin in a family and endure through the years. The one I want to share with you started because of a man who hated the commercial side of Christmas. He was fine with the true meaning of Christmas but had no use for the frantic running around, gifts given […]

Celebrating Christmas

Celebrating Christmas

There is no mention in the Bible of the Date of Jesus Birth.  As best we can determine, it didn’t even occur to early Christians that they should celebrate His Birthday.  The fact is that the Baptism of Jesus was far more important to them than his birth date. Before the birth of Jesus, midwinter […]
