Devotional for September 27, 2020

Scripture Reading: Philippians 2:1-3 Only in the darkness can you see the stars. Martin Luther King Jr. They still tell the story at the College of William & Mary 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 & Mary went bankrupt. Soon it had a deserted campus, decaying buildings, and no students.…

GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY

Congratulations Lakeview United Methodist Church on your Golden Anniversary What started as a small group meeting in the bowling alley down the street in 1970 has emerged into a beautiful campus on the corner of Thunderbird and 103rd here in Sun City, Arizona.  Under the beginning leadership of Dr. Smoot and his wife, who walked the streets of Sun City, knocked on doors and invited people to this new church, we are now enjoying the successful work of many pastors…

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…

Devotional for September 13, 2020

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…

Devotional for September 6, 2020

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. I enjoy looking at these electric vehicles because I like their design and how quietly they run. And we’re seeing more of them than ever. 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 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…
