  • No worries, Jesus is in the boat

    It was a Monday, about a dozen or so years ago, the sky a brilliant blue, dotted with puffs of white, fluffy clouds.

    At that same moment, 600 miles away, a violent, deadly storm raged and ravaged the nearby Gulf coast states, it’s destructive power beyond my comprehension.

  • A crown that will last forever

    If you are a sports enthusiast or Olympic nut like me, you were glued to your television set or at least trying to keep up with the results of events at the recently concluded Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. 

  • Bumper sticker theology has its place

     

     

    On most days as I’m on my way to work I see a car with a bunch of bumper stickers on the back.

    There’s a “26.2” and a “13.1” sticker that means the driver is probably a marathon/half-marathon runner. Other stickers say things like “Easy does it,” “One day at a time” and “Let go and let God.”

  • God is always present, rain or shine

    It was 10 years ago.

    The bride’s name was Emily and her wedding, according to the sign in the lobby, was scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, on the veranda of the beach-front hotel where we were staying.

    Barry and I had gone to the beach for a long weekend before his open-heart surgery on the 29th.

    The weather had been Chamber of Commerce perfect -- until Saturday morning. On Saturday the sky stayed gray and it rained off and on, mostly on, all day. 

  • Olympians give their best, so should we

    It has been a wonderful two weeks for the world as the Summer Olympics have been on but what is really impressive is the 1,000 Gold Medals won by USA in Olympic history. 

    I have enjoyed most of the sports and have cheered on the Red, White and Blue whenever I watched. I am very proud to be an American and on top of that a Christian American.

  • How will you be remembered?

    What kind of person are you? When you pass away, how will you be remembered by those who knew you? 

    A couple of weeks ago, my family returned to Texas because I was asked to conduct the memorial service of one of our former church members there. Glen Milham passed away in the early hours of Aug. 1, the very day of his 89th birthday. 

  • Hushing Jesus up

     

    Years ago I visited with a woman who sold biblical toys, action figures of Bible characters like Moses, David and Goliath and Jesus.

    The Jesus doll, about twice the size of a G.I. Joe, had movable fingers and joints and if you pressed a button on Jesus’ back he talked.

    As the woman demonstrated, Jesus started reciting Bible verses -- and wouldn’t stop.

    SILAS BAPTIST

    Members of Silas Baptist Church invites everyone to visit Silas on Sunday, Aug. 28, at 6 p.m. to hear the religious group CrossTithes. The men of CrossTithes are best summed up by their motto: “Simple men. Simple music. An Awesome God!” Devoted to simple service, they believe that God doesn’t call us to do great things, He calls us to do things...and He’ll make them great.
