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.

Bible Tweets

That’s right. What if the authors of the 27 books of the New Testament of the Bible had been limited to only one “tweet” on “Twitter” in order to get their main point across? That’s kind of a strange question and scenario, but in our “tweet-happy” world, maybe not so far-fetched.
