The main speaker is so encouraging. I was overwhelmed by the love and support I received from the ladies who attended …

Hi, my name is Susan

And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’ Matthew 25:40 (NRSV) It looked like my husband and I were going to have all three seats to ourselves when at the …

On my heart

This past week someone I barely know shared briefly with me their financial struggles. I cannot get this conversation out of my head. What can I do to help this family? I've figured this out. What resources are there in our community for this family? I am trying to figure this out. There are some …

God’s Grace

My faith is so important to me. When I first accepted Christ I wore my faith in your face. I was obnoxious. I didn't mean to be, I just wanted everyone to know how Christ had changed my life. Preaching hell and damnation does not draw people to Christ. God's grace. God's love. Christ's sacrifice. …

Just before I left the hotel to go to church I stopped by the front desk. The hotel receptionist saw my well worn Bible cover. "Oh, how I love to see a Bible that has been used!" she said. Soon we were discussing our mutual love for The Lord. The day before I had done …

Empty Promises

“And don’t say anything you don’t mean. This counsel is embedded deep in our traditions. You only make things worse when you lay down a smoke screen of pious talk, saying, ‘I’ll pray for you,’ and never doing it, or saying, ‘God be with you,’ and not meaning it. You don’t make your words true …

Golf, bagpipes, and heaven

Phil Mickelson won the 142nd British Open golf match last weekend at Muirfield in Gullane, East Lothian, Scotland. What a beautiful country! Hopefully one day we will be able to visit there. As we watched the match on TV, I loved hearing the various Scottish commentators with their wonderful accents. In between play they showed …
