Devotional for September 20, 2020

Scripture Reading: Philippians 1:21-30 We make a living by what we get; but we make a life by what we give. Winston Churchill In his book, Thirst, Scott Harrison tells the story of his dream to bring clean water to the world. He describes the book in the subtitle: “A story of redemption, compassion, and a mission to bring clean water to the world.” Though a work of nonfiction, the book is full of action and reads like an exciting…

Scripture Reading: Matthew 18:21-35 God’s forgiveness and grace is bigger than anything wrong you’ve ever done or will do. Rick Warren Car accidents happen. Most of them are fender benders. Perhaps you can remember when you were involved in an accident. Although you were not injured, you probably worried about how this little dust-up would affect your insurance rates. These days, however, the outcome might surprise you. Instead of a hefty insurance raise, you might get a note from your…

Scripture Reading: Exodus 12:1-14 If the devil cannot make us bad, he will make us busy. Corrie Ten Boom We have a Tesla dealership less than two blocks from where we live.

In fact, the police in Fremont, California, have at least one Tesla, and it was the subject of a recent news report. A…

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 Two Yeshua News After being conquered by the Amorites and the Egyptians, the children of God are released from Egypt into the wilderness area and wander for 40 years before Joshua led them into the “Promised Land.” Bit by bit the Hebrew people conquered the land promised in Genesis to Abraham.

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 14:13-21 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.

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…
