Challenging you to the Lord’s Prayer

I cannot say OUR if I live only for myself. I cannot say FATHER if I do not endeavor each day to act like His child. I cannot say WHO ART IN HEAVEN if I am laying up no treasures there. I cannot say HALLOWED BE THY NAME if I am not striving for holiness. I cannot say THY KINDOM COME if I am not doing all in my power to hasten that wonderful event. I cannot say THY WILL…

Clayton’s Testimony

My mother had a saying that intrigued me. When asked how she was doing, she would say, “I’ve been able to keep body and soul together.” What did she mean by that? Was both her body and soul healthy? How did she keep both glowing with health?

Pastor John’s View for February

Perhaps I would have learned about prayer from someone else, but June took the time to teach me; thank you June! We prayed about most everything from food to business, family and beyond.

Fishing in Deeper Waters

Psalm 138 How easy it is to give God thanks in the midst of worship-the choir sings, the music resounds, the sanctuary fills with God’s praise. Now the work week starts-how easy is it to offer that same praise as one stumbles through morning preparations and sets off to the workplace? For me Monday is a full day, and I’m not always filled with praise for God. The consideration of prostrating myself before God conjures up an image of falling…

God, Bible, and Community

Psalm 19:1-6 While walking in the desert one night, far from the city lights, I stared at the sky layered with bright, twinkling stars. I realized how amazing and great this creation is, while recognizing  my own smallness . Against the breadth and depth of God’s limitless sky, I acknowledged how little I understand about this universe, how many voices I cannot hear! God  does not limit  community  to humankind  and the things we build and gather around ourselves .…

Divine Comedy in Seven Acts

 Psalm 36:5-10 Classically speaking, a comedy isn’t necessarily funny. What makes a story or situation comic rather than tragic is its perspective on human nature and destiny. Remember Dante’s Divine Comedy? I bet many of us never made it out of Part 1: Hell. But we know that after Hell comes Part II: Purgatory and finally Part III: Paradise. That final arrival makes the whole thing, ultimately, a comedy. How does comedy differ from tragedy? The tragic view emphasizes our…

Actions speak louder than words

January’s “Thank You” notes; I wanted to thank you for allowing me to use your facility for Lois Griswold’s “90th” Birthday party.

The party was a success due to the wonderful people and the openness to share your facility. Thank you, JoDee Clark Thank you to all the…
