Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you had a blessed week.

This past Thursday was the annual National Day of Prayer, and I was asked to attend a prayer gathering at Mosaic in Kansas City, Kansas. Now, Mosaic is a faith-based organization that serves people with intellectual disabilities and its mission is to advocate for people with intellectual disabilities and provide opportunities…

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you had a blessed and happy Easter.

What a great day of joy and celebration Easter was. I love Easter morning! And this year, with the sun shining and the weather so gorgeous, it seemed especially joyous. Almost 300 people came to Salem to worship. We shouted that Easter proclamation, “Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed, alleluia!”…

He's On The Loose

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us. Amen

As many you know, I have two grandchildren, and my youngest, is Parker who is only 10 months old, but unlike his older sister, Addi, who is for the most part calm and gentle, Parker is like a bull in a china cabinet. If you are holding him you better make…

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you have had a blessed Holy Week.

As I write this letter, I am preparing for our Maundy Thursday service and our Good Friday service. By the time you read this letter, though, Good Friday will be over and the whole church will be in a time of waiting. Holy Saturday, although most of us really don’t do anything on this day, is…

Changed By Love

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us.Amen

When I left here this past Sunday, after our morning of celebrating Palm Sunday, I left here with a feeling of excitement and joy. I left expecting this to be a very special and holy week. But so much changed for me, and for so many in this community just 30…

Practicing Our Faith Can Be Dangerous!

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us.Amen

What a confusing day this is! As we began our time of worship, we remembered the jubilation and joy that Jerusalem experienced that day over 2000 years ago when Jesus, the great healer, the one so many believed was the Messiah that had come to set them free,…

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you have had a blessed week.

As we prepare for Holy Week, we prepare to celebrate what many find to be a confusing holiday, Palm Sunday. Think about it, on this day, we begin our worship with great joy by reading about the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. It’s a great time of joy and just when you think we will continue…

Death Is Not The End

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us. Amen

April is a month filled with mixed emotions for me. It is the month of my birthday. It is the month that my son and daughter-in-law were married seven years ago. It is the month that my grandfather died, 42 years ago on my 13th birthday.…

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you have had a blessed week.

Whenever I ask a group of adults to share their favorite scripture verse or bible story, inevitably, someone in the group will offer up John 11:35 which says “Jesus wept.” Now, although this is a powerful verse, for it indicates the love Jesus had for all of creation, most people really remember this…

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you have had a blessed week.

Well, if you are counting, we are just over the halfway point on our journey through the season of Lent. As I often say, Lent is a journey we make once a year to the cross. In many ways, it is like that annual pilgrimage that many Jews used to literally make to Jerusalem for the Passover. Yes, every…
