  • Local observance of National Day of Prayer

     

    Tens of thousands of prayer events are planned across the country on Thursday May 7, 2015, to honor the annual National Day of Prayer. In churches, parks and on courthouse steps, citizens will be praying for our nation, government leaders, media, military, schools, churches, businesses and families.

  • Fitting it back together

    Everybody’s done it from time to time, you drop that plate or glass and suddenly you hear that awful crash. What was once whole, useful and maybe even pretty, now lies broken and shattered on the ground. What a mess!

    We bought this beautiful handmade vase once, and before we even got it home it was in two or three pieces. I did my best to glue the pieces in place, but you can tell. I can see it right now from my desk. We keep the unbroken side turned out, but turn it just a little and you can’t miss the cracks.

  • Chosen by Jesus

    Read John 15: 12-17

    Let me ask you a question: Can a person have absolute assurance that their sins are forgiven, that they are a child of

    God, and that heaven is their home when they die? Spend a moment and think about that question and about your spiritual journey.

    There are two basic ways that people try to get to heaven.

  • It seemed like a good idea

    This morning as I was walking our dog, I noticed a lot of worms along the sidewalk and in the road. You’ve probably seen them from time to time too. Some of them are still wiggling a little, but many have sort of dried up. This morning I walked past one that was still moving a little and then I stopped. I went back and picked it up and tossed it in the grass thinking, “Well, at least that one will make it!”

  • Promoted to glory

    Just last week I was at the funeral of a friend of ours. His name was Howard Jones. His son and his wife have been good friends of ours since we moved to Louisville twenty years ago. Howard made an impression on everyone he came in contact with. From his sense of humor, to his love for the Lord, you knew God’s grace was upon him.

  • Christ was our pinch hitter

    Read Acts 3:11-26

    In the game of baseball there is a special position called a pinch hitter.

    A pinch hitter is a person that comes into the game to bat in place of another player, who is usually not a very good batter. One way a coach can use this position to his advantage in a baseball game, is if he needs a really good hit, in a very critical time in the game - he can replace the poor hitter with the really good pinch hitter.

  • The power of touch between God and man

    Lessons from 1 John chapter 1 and 2:
    Picture a new mom and dad in the delivery room after the birth of their first child. The baby is placed in her arms and she holds the baby close.
    She reaches down and caresses the baby’s cheek. The dad holds out his finger and the baby curls its tiny little fingers around it. What wonderful experience involving good touch.

  • Lukewarm people lose their need for God

    In our Bible study on Thursday nights, we are currently studying the book of Revelation. Although we’ve just begun, the journey is already intense. This last week we were looking at the church of the Laodiceans. This is a church most of us are all familiar with. Why? Because it’s so much describes the way our church is today. Read what John says in Revelation 3:14-17:
