Senior Sunday

  Senior Sunday is upon us again as we celebrate the achievements of our High School Seniors this morning. Today we celebrate with Faith Fulkerson, Jackson Hodge, and Kevin McQueen as they close the door on one chapter of life and open a new chapter. Some people say that High School is the best time of your life while others say that there is more happiness ahead.…

Mothers

  What a blessing!   As I look back at what my mother did for me and what Mandy is doing for our children, I am amazed and so very grateful for this wonderful blessing God put in our life though his grand design!  Hour after hour of selfless service, sitting up at night to hold them when they are sick, all the meals cooked with love, loads and loads and loads of…

Scripture of Hope

“For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragements of the Scriptures we might have hope.” Romans 15:4 ESV Things don’t always go well in life. Right now we have a 2-year-old and a 6-month-old child and things don’t always go right. It could be a child who won’t nap, might run away through the…

Risk: Oversold and Underplayed

I was reading around this week and came across this article that I think should cause us to stop and think some.  Generalities can be dangerous but take some time to ask if this is something that you need to hear.  Are you living in a way that to some you are the smell of life, and to others the smell of death?  Are you living as a result of the mercy and grace of God or…

Easter is a time where many people come together to remember the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It also sets the stage for one of my favorite passages in the Bible. According to the Scriptures and the Greek text in Luke 24:1 we find that on…

Camping in the Wilderness

Spring has arrived, well at least technically according to the calendar. What it really means is that winter is behind us and warmer days are ahead of us. One of the popular activities of warmer weather is camping in the woods with a group of friends, family, or through a camp. I always looked forward to camping out at Ganderbrook every summer, catching up with friends,…

Christian Persecution

More than 3,000 Christians were killed worldwide last year for their faith, twice as many as the previous year, a report by the charity Open Doors has found. Of the 11 worst countries for Christians to live in, all are now classed as places of extreme persecution – more than ever before in 26 years of the World Watch List, which is published annually by the charity. Open…

Cotton Candy Christianity

While the concept might have originated in Europe, it was William Morrison and John C. Wharton of Nashville who made it become a reality. In 1897, they created the machine which used air and sugar to popularize the spread of a new product. They called it fairy floss. It still has that name in Australia. In much of the world, it is called candy floss. In France, it is…
