It was a good morning today. Of course, any morning is good with God in your life. But today was also good because we had a good attendance. 23 people came to church this morning. Not a record, but more than I’ve seen in a while. Even better, there were 6 children. I’m sure the … [Read more…]
Interesting things happen in church. Today (11-13-2016), toward the end of the song service, a young man came in the door. He was sand covered, ragged, wearing overalls and carrying a backpack, sleeping bag and a bag of what I assume were his clothes. Standing on the riser singing, I was easy to see so … [Read more…]
Had a good day at Church. Mowed the yard, planted some flowers on the north end of the classroom section, fought with the rose bush out front, but it looks better. I think that rose bush gave me a very small sample of what a crown of thorns would feel like … except it was … [Read more…]

The couple are in transition and looking for a church. We hope they enjoyed our little service and visit more. Their story started me thinking … [Read more…]
Sadly, Brother David was ill and couldn’t be at church today. We are all praying that he gets well quickly. Although he was missed, we carried on, had a good song service and listened to Brother Bud talk a bit. Mathew 18: 20 For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I … [Read more…]
“The Paradox of ‘Our’ Existence: Pronouns and the Politics of the Kingdom” – My message and discussion for tomorrow from Romans and the Epistle of Diognetus. Gonna be interesting.
Today was a somber day. We prayed for the families of the nine people murdered in Charleston, South Carolina. The families, and those killed were and are our brothers and sisters. Hate like this was never meant to be and can only be answered by love. We looked at Mathew 5: 43 – 48 “You … [Read more…]
