Choose Life, Today!

Sometimes we have to make choices in our lives that are fairly easy and not really life changing decisions. Decisions like what to eat for breakfast and what to wear in the morning. We make choices like this all the time. Sometimes making choices in our lives is not so easy, is it? Sometimes we have to choose between two good choices. I recently spoke to man whose daughter has received…

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you have had a blessed week.

So, did you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Most of the time, Jill and I do not go out right on Valentine’s Day, because the restaurants are just too crowded. We normally stay home and cook a nice meal together, but this year we are invited to spend the evening with some good friends.

For many…

You Are, What You Are!

Last week we talked about being that lighthouse that shines our light on Christ in this darkened world. The season of Epiphany is truly a season that focuses on mission and that mission is one of sharing with the world who Jesus is and how Jesus is in each of our lives. The missional emphasis of this season is intended to shine like a beacon of light and hope in the dead of winter. We are…

So, what has God been up to in your life lately? You don’t know, you say? You’ve been wondering yourself where God is in your life, you say?

Last Sunday, in the adult Sunday School class, I challenged the class to start watching for God as they went about their week. I shared with them how…

I know there are a few of you who like to look ahead in the lectionary. So, for those of you who like to do that, as we read the texts this morning you might be thinking, oh, we’re not reading from the lectionary this morning, but we actually are. You see today is the fourth Sunday after Epiphany in the church calendar, so had we followed the lectionary for the fourth Sunday after Epiphany…

This past Sunday, we held our annual meeting, and it was a very good meeting. We had some great discussions about how we are handling our finances. A motion was made and approved by a voice vote to state that we will always tithe a minimum of 10% of our income to benevolence. We are actually budgeted…

What Are You Waiting For?

It was an absolutely gorgeous day. It was sunny with just a few clouds in the sky and the temperature was about 80°. There were about 35 of us on a very large catamaran just off the coast of the island of Roatan in the Caribbean Sea. We had arrived at the area we would go snorkeling and I was excited. The water was the most incredible blue I had ever seen and it was crystal clear. As…

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you have had a blessed couple of weeks.

As you probably already figured out when you didn’t receive a letter from me last week, I was on vacation. Jill and I decided it was time to get away and refresh ourselves, so we took a seven-day cruise out of Houston to the Western Caribbean. It was a wonderful week filled with lots of time…
