  • Come ye lowly

    The Bible says, “there were some shepherds” (Luke 2:8) --- simple, ordinary shepherds. It was to these ordinary and lowly men that the angel announced the birth of Jesus Christ.

  • Family probs

    Got family problems? Drama? Division? Discord? If so, you aren’t alone, and this Christmas season can be extra difficult as you prepare to spend time with those who may be difficult to be with, so what should you do?

  • Joseph: obedient to God

    As we consider the people at the birth of Jesus the Christ, let us turn our attention to Joseph. Some have referred to him as the forgotten man at Christmas. We sing of the Christ child, the mother, the shepherds, the angels, the wise men and even the bells on Christmas day, but there is little mention of Joseph.

    There is not a single word he utters recorded in the gospel story. He is the silent servant who acts rather than speaks. He is mentioned in the gospels of Matthew and Luke and then fades from the scene.

  • Which Jesus do you choose to follow?

    At the end of 2015, the Gallup Poll released data stating 75% of Americans identified with Christianity. This number was down by roughly 5% since 2008, but still stands as a overwhelming majority of individuals within our country. At the same time, we find that the gathering of the church across America is in a state of plateau or decline. The ultimate question then must be asked, “Which Jesus is being followed?”

  • Mary, blessed among women

    During Advent I want to share with you thoughts on some of “The Characters of the Christmas Story.”  We begin with Mary.  She is listed among some of the notable women of scripture and referred to as “Mary, the woman chosen by God.”  There are some 17 references to Mary in Matthew, Luke and John.

  • How to do the impossible

    Two years ago, I was badly out of shape, not having exercised for years.

    Two weeks ago, I accomplished a physical goal that I would have once told you was impossible for me.

    How do we go from where we are to a goal that seems impossible? We go through one intentional step at a time.

    Have you set goals for 2018? If you do, what goals would they be? Financial goals? Physical or health goals? Mental goals? Relational goals? Spiritual goals? Here are some helpful thoughts on how to achieve the impossible in 2018!

  • Thinking and Thanking

    The Psalmist said, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise” (100:4). He also said, “Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving” (107:22). Moses instructed the children of Israel, “When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the Lord your God for the good which He has given you” (Deuteronomy 8:10).

  • Living with a Grateful Heart!

    In 1621, the original colonist with the Wanpanoag Indians celebrated what many consider to be the first thanksgiving. Of the 102 original colonists, only 54 had survived to this point. Though the colonists had been plagued with pain, suffering, disease, and death, they were still grateful for the harvest. Even with the issues, the colonists found reason to rejoice and be thankful.
