  • Long term living

    Not long ago on a mission trip, I met some young people who stopped me in my tracks.  They came up after a service was over just to talk for a few minutes.  Over the next 30 minutes, I got a lesson in the reality of Christian living in the modern world.  They were experiencing a lot of pain just to gain some temporary happiness and acceptance.

  • In like a lion...out like a lamb

    The old saying, “In like a lion…” has held true so far for the month of March. It seems that in the first couple of weeks we have seen many facing troubled times, for some, the worst times of their lives. The truth is that some, even in our own church, are struggling in different ways that many of you are not aware of.

    We each have different ways of dealing with struggle, in whatever form it takes. Some share their struggles, while others hold in and seemingly walk around as if everything is great.

  • Happily ever after

    “Once upon a time,” the fairy tale beginning.  It conjures up images of a better time.  Fairy tales always start off well, then things fall apart, but all ends well and “They lived happily ever after.”

    I think a lot of people are living with “Once upon a time” syndrome.  We idolize the past and forget that the good old days weren’t all that good.  We look back to some golden era in our childhood or in our nation’s history and want to regain that imagined glory.

  • Use it or lose it

    It is already that time of year, time to get the mower out.  For me, that generally means rearranging the garage and digging the mower out from under all the junk I piled on top of it over the last few months.  Hopefully, you don’t have that problem.

  • Enjoying abundant life even at an older age
  • Together is better

    Ok, first things first, I am a Baptist Preacher and I agree with Baptist doctrine.  I just wanted to be sure to get that out of the way before I go on to say that I am a Christian before I am a Baptist.  You see the eternal question is not, “Are you a Baptist?” It is more fundamental; “Have you placed your full faith and trust in Jesus?”
