Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you have had a blessed week.

I find it hard to believe that 2013 is over. I remember writing my first letter of 2013, and that seems like just yesterday. Where did the year go? For some of us, we will be glad to see this year end because of illnesses or other struggles; for others, we might wish it would never end. I know for…

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I pray you had a blessed and Merry Christmas Day!

I know for most of us, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day mark the end of a busy time of year; a time of much preparation and planning; once we open our presents, we consider Christmas over, and we move on, looking forward to the New Year.

But this is not the case in my house this year.…

Is This All There Is?

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

Well, it is finally here! After weeks of shopping, buying, planning, baking, cooking, partying, celebrating, decorating, and for some of us, traveling, Christmas is finally here. Christmas carols have been playing on all the radio stations,…

While shepherds watch are…


Repent, Again, & Again &…

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

Repent, repent, repent! Like a broken record, we here this word all year long, don’t we? As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our LORD, Jesus Christ, we hear, Repent! In Lent, when we will prepare for the death and resurrection of…

Who's in Charge Here?

You know, every time I read Jeremiah 23, as I pastor, I get a little nervous. Did you hear how that story started this morning, “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the LORD. Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who shepherd my people: It is you who have scattered my flock, and have driven them away, and you have not attended…

Are You Ready?

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

So where were you on November 22, 1963? That was the question of the week a couple of weeks ago as this nation remembered the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. I was only four years old at the…
