Too Much To Ask?

Too Much To Ask?

Luke 18 and 19 tells of two rich and powerful men. One of them is called a “ruler,” and the other one “chief among the publicans.” They both seemed to be ruled by money. Both of them sought out Jesus. Both wanted eternal life. The interesting thing is that neither one...

Dig!

New Year Focus

New Year Focus

Why are thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted in me? Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. Psalm 42:5 2020 was an eventful year for us.  But so was 2007.  So many things happened that year.  People from...

Best of All

Best of All

For the first time ever, I didn’t want to take down the nativity scene at the front of the church. That’s unusual. Usually by the time that Christmas is over, I’m ready not to see it again for at least twelve months! Don’t get me wrong! I enjoy giving and getting...

God With Us

God With Us

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23 God with us. I think those are some of my favorite words from the Christmas story. God has a way to come to...

Family Resemblance?

Family Resemblance?

Means of Grace

Means of Grace

I’m done mourning. For eight months, I’ve thought of the things I don’t have. I’m sure those of you who have shared my journey in 2020 have heard my sadness. My denomination did not have campmeeting, preachers’ convention, or revivals. Our services, with the masks and...
