Take my Son

I share a story with you today. In this story we hear God’s clear call to us and His clear promise for us. It’s not a true story, but a story with The Truth.

How great Thou art!

We have two worship services on Sunday mornings at our church, each with its distinctive type of music. The 9:15 service is “contemporary” with full-volume band and drums, hand clapping, and songs often heard on current Christian radio. I love that service; so do a lot of other people.

Why go to church?

I can think of no better way to start this New Year than to affirm our regular attendance in our houses of worship. I put first importance on our spiritual wellbeing, but did you know that scientific research has indicated many physical and emotional benefits as well?

Veterans, we honor you

Yesterday, Nov. 11, was Veterans Day, and so we rise again to honor all who have served in our United States military. Thank you. God bless you. I thought it important to remember the history of Veterans Day and to share a prayer.

Heaven is for real

The book and movie Heaven Is For Real is the true story of Colton Burpo, the four-year-old son of a small-town Nebraska pastor. After surviving emergency surgery, he begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room.

God bless nurses!

For a long time I’ve wanted to lift up and honor some of the most important contributors to our society, and particularly these contributors right here in our own Fayette community. Well, now’s the time. God bless nurses!

Church camp

One of my favorite events of ministry within the life of our church is our annual trek with kids and youth to summer church camp. We go to our Lutheran camp near Asheville, N.C., in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. It is appropriately named Lutheridge.

Another ‘biggie’

Christmas and Easter. The “biggies,” right?

Well, what about the event we will “celebrate”tomorrow, which happens to be the 40th day after Easter?

Yes, it was 40 days after Christ’s resurrection that He ascended back into heaven, the event we call “The Ascension.”

Examine the evidence

We people of faith talk a lot about faith. You know, believing things we cannot see with our human eyes and cannot prove by scientific data. One of our favorite Bible passages is “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 KJV.
