Jesus Appears

God’s Human Speech

John 20:19-23 We tend to think of language as the essential element of communication, but it’s not. Eye movement, tone of voice, physical gestures, volume, space, and time play a larger part in the meaning we take from other people’s messages to us and the ways our conversations are heard and interpreted by others.

Pastor Tom’s View for April

April 2018 Taxes The month of April, as you know, has a date to which most of us must pay specific attention, April 15th. It is the date that our taxes from the previous years earnings are due to our government. Jesus too had to pay attention to the taxes during his ministry but for a much different reason. Bill O’Reilly in his book “Killing Jesus” points out that Jesus had a huge problem with what was going on in…
He Is Risen

Easter Sunday

1 Corinthians 15:19-26 & John 20:1-18 Scripture is definite: death ends every life. That’s is why “the last enemy to be destroyed is death,” declares Paul. Enemy indeed – So much so that “if Christ has not been raised,”  those “who have died in Christ have perished” and we are “of all people most to be pitied” (1 Cor. 15:17-19). Our one hope is that if God actually raised Jesus from the dead, he will do so for us who…
