Working Out Differences

Paul spoke to the church at Philippi about unity and forgiveness. It seems there were two women, Euodia and Syntyche, having a problem. The scriptures don’t tell us what the problem was, however Paul encourages them to work out their differences and live in unity. Many times as Christians we […]

Forgotten Mission?

I get it! Life all around us is busy – 24/7/365! We go through our days accomplishing the things we need to do to be able to live and support our families. Somewhere in the midst of all this is God. Yes, I just said somewhere. We take him for […]

Dangers of Independence

It starts when we are first brought into this world; everything about our existence is dependency based when the doctor hands us over to our parents. Survival is based on how well our guardians are going to take care of us. The only things we can do is breathe, blink, […]

We Want Comfort

I sat down and asked my wife how Sunday’s message from the book of Philemon resonated with her. Sunday was the last message from this short little book. It’s stuffed very tightly between the books of Titus and Hebrews. I know, you missed it too? After years of being a […]

In Chains for Christ

I love Paul. I’m mean who doesn’t love The Saint Paul? I love him because of books like Romans, Ephesians, 1st.& 2nd. Corinthians and Colossians. So when pastor said, we would be systematically studying the book of Philemon, I was like, “OK,  how do you even say this dude’s name?” Boy […]

Gotta Serve Somebody

Bob Dylan’s popular song, ‘Gotta Serve Somebody’, says it all. During a time and culture of hippies, drugs and free sex this revolutionary title and song struck a cord. What wasn’t so strange, is that it wasn’t new. The bible has told us this from the very beginning of time. Dylan just penned […]

Gas, Brake. Gas, Brake.

Today’s sermon rejuvenated my hope, rekindled my fire even. As a busy, working mom of three and wife to one (he-he), my world can get overwhelming at times. In an effort to maintain my sanity and some semblance of normalcy, I tend to stick with routines. Same meals. Same days […]

React! Love Them All!

I’m reading Soledad O’Brien’s book, The Next Big Story, and in it she tells of reading some of the speech notes of Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. King’s home had been bombed, his family was in danger, and he had to speak in code on the telephone. He could have […]

Who Is the God I Serve?

He is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. (Revelation 22:13) He is the creator of the universe. (Genesis 1) He longs to be gracious to me. (Isaiah 30:18) He numbers the hairs on my head. (Luke 12:7) This past Sunday, we began our second to last […]
