Devotional for August 30, 2020

Scripture Reading: Exodus 3:1-15 God’s love is like an ocean; you can see its beginning, but not its end. Rick Warren The Old Testament reading today is from Exodus 3. It tells the story of “the burning bush.” This is no ordinary bush that burns. A bush that merely burned was no doubt a common sight. This bush, however, burned and was not consumed. It did not wither in the heat of the flames to a pile of ash! It…

Pastor John’s View August 2020

Thoughtful Ramblings For much of my adult life, I thought small groups were, well, silly. Maybe a waste of my time. Oh, I was in quite a few from Boy Scouts to law enforcement, there always seemed to be a need for a small group to work together. I think I equated the church “small group” to many of the leadership training seminars I had attended where they break you into “triads” or “quads” to discuss the points the facilitator…

YESHUA – The Promise, The Land & The Messiah

Week Three Yeshua News In weeks 1 and 2, we explored the logistic basis for the importance of the Palestinian Peninsula which was occupied by one great force after another. The takeovers of the Assyrians to the north and the Babylonians in the south led to the exile of major landowners and persons in positions of leadership in governmental and religious circles. God granted Cyrus the Great with taking over the Mediterranean countries and releasing those Jewish exiles who wanted…

Devotional for Ausust 20, 2020

Scripture Reading: Genesis 45:1-15 Trust in God’s timing. It’s better to wait awhile and have things fall into place, than to rush and have things fall apart. Anon. At many airports in Southeast Asia, the area where arriving passengers can be greeted by family members, friends or a company driver is designated as the “Meeting Hall.” After passengers get their baggage, they walk through corridors until finally they pass through doors that open into the Meeting Hall. There, they encounter…

Scripture Reading: Matthew 14:22-33 A bad day for your ego is a great day for your soul. Jillian Michaels Many years have passed since Ken pastored a small church in the Midwest. While at this church, however, some remarkable things happened. Pastor Ken seemed to have a remarkable gift for prayers and healing. People came to him for help and asked him to pray, and many were healed of long-term ailments. Pastor Ken knew that he was only a channel…

Devotional for August 16, 2020

Scripture Reading: Matthew 14:13-21 Old age is like everything else. To make a success of it, you’ve got to start young. Theodore Roosevelt Tourists go to California for many reasons. One is to see the majestic coastal redwoods. Four things stand out about these redwoods: They are old, tall, nurturing and interconnecting. They are old! California redwoods are among the oldest living things on the planet. Some live to be more than 2,000 years old! That’s old! They are tall! Redwoods…

Devotion for August 14, 2020

Scripture Reading: Psalm 138 Only in the darkness can you see the stars. —Martin Luther King Jr. They still tell the story at William and Mary College of daffy, magnificent President Ewell. For a century and a half, this prestigious Virginia school had been a leader among American universities. Then came the Civil War. In the hard days of reconstruction that followed, William and Mary went bankrupt. Soon it had a deserted campus, decaying buildings and no students. As with…
