Tales from the Mountain

Pastor John’s view for November 2020 It had snowed all the previous day and night and all day that day but by evening, the sky was clearing and stars began popping out from behind the clouds. The moon was up there somewhere too and creating a diffused light over the white landscape. Trees laden with several inches of snow labored under the burden. With dinner over, we bundled up and strapped on our cross-country skis and slid down the driveway…

Devotional for October 18, 2020

Scripture Reading: 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10 Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing! Albert Schweitzer Imitators and examples. The apostle Paul mentions this in the reading above. He says that the people in this church at Thessalonika (a city in northern Greece) were both imitators and examples. What does he mean? Do you remember when you were young that you often imitated what you saw others do? You probably learned to tie your shoes…

Yeshua

YESHUA – The Promise, The Land & The Messiah

PROGRAM 5: “Ripples of Darkness, Waves of Light” INTRODUCTION           While many of the events in the life of Jesus are reported in only one of several of the Gospels, all four Gospels tell about Jesus’ suffering, crucifixion and death. The importance of those events is evident also in the Apostle’s Creed which mentions only three people by name: Jesus; Mary; and Pontius Pilate, the man who signed Jesus’ order of execution. “Ripples of Darkness, Waves of Light” tells the…

Devotional for October 11, 2020

Scripture Reading: Philippians 4:1-9 Worry doesn’t take care of tomorrow’s problems; it takes away today’s peace! Anon. In today’s reading, we’re told: “Do not worry about anything,” (verse 6). That is easier said than done! Doesn’t it irritate you when someone says to you: “Don’t worry about it!”? It is especially aggravating when this well-meaning person says, “The Bible says we shouldn’t worry.” We don’t have a worry switch we can turn on and off, do we? It’s not like we…

Devotional for October 4, 2020

Philippians 3:4b-14 Cleaning house fascinates everyone in my family. They can sit around and watch me for hours!!! Anon.   We’re a full nine months into the year 2020, and starting on the 10th month. The year is not yet close to being over, but it is a safe bet that more trash, junk and garbage has been hauled to the dump than ever before in the history of humankind! I have not verified this, but I’ll bet that charities…
Will

Do You Have a Will?

Remember Lakeview in Your Estate and Wills I know when my wife, Ruth Ellen, passed away in December, 2018, I realized about a year later, after I settled her estate, that I needed to change my Will to reflect not only her passing but that there were some charities that I also wanted to remember in my Will when I passed to the Lord. I also know that some people relook at their Will every New Year to make sure that…
