Church

  • Freedom to worship in varying ways something to be thankful for

    The dictionary tells us that worship is reverent honor and homage paid to God or a sacred personage, or to any object regarded as sacred.
    The Bible tells us worship means to “express praise and devotion.”
    For me personally, I love to worship God with music and sing praise songs.
    The Bible says this about worship; 1 Chronicles 16:29 NLT – “Give to the Lord the glory he deserves!
    Bring your offering and come into his presence.  
    Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor.”

  • Remember those killed in South Carolina

    I have a copy of Chuck Coleson’s 1992 book, The Body: Being Light In Darkness.
    Sometimes I take it from the shelf, read and reflect on the stories presented.
    They express  transformation.
    One person surrenders life to bring God’s redemptive expression to others.
    Coleson writes of excruciating sacrifice. No denomination dominates the narrative. Pastors, priests and rabbis minister to individuals and groups inside and outside their traditions. The transcending stories bear witness of the power of God.

  • Sometimes tragedies are actually mercies

    Over the years I’ve heard hundreds of stories from people about how they came to faith in Christ, or how God delivered them from something that had them bound or how they were drawn closer to God because of a certain situation.
    More often than not, the circumstances that precede the turning point or the epiphany or the moment of surrender or rescue are dire, tragic, painful. Sometimes the painful situation is what God uses to bring a person from no faith to new faith or running from God to running to him.

  • Liars' pants should really be on fire

    I don’t know about you, but I hate being lied to.
    A few weeks ago we drove to Tampa, which is about 70 miles from where we live. That same day, we needed to go to Port Charlotte, which is south of Tampa.
    How far south, you ask?
    Well, according to the “distance between two cities” online calculator I used, Port Charlotte is 70 miles south of Tampa.
    Except the calculator lied.
    We drove and drove and drove and about 110 miles later got to Port Charlotte.
    I hate being lied to.

  • "Free" stuff always comes with a cost

    I love free stuff.
    When we lived in California we lived near scads of big- box warehouse stores that always gave away free samples. Sometimes, if you got there on the right day at the right time, you could eat enough free samples and be too full to eat lunch or dinner when you got home.
    I wasn’t thinking of free stuff a few Sundays ago when I stopped at a little Pentecostal church I had never visited before, even though I’ve talked to the pastor many times.
    And what to my wondering eyes should appear? Free goodies and coffee!

  • The Accident

    I was at my mother-in-law’s house last summer and was putting up a handrail on her steps for her.
    While I was attaching the handrail, my drill slipped and the screw driver bit slipped off the screw and into my thumbnail.
    Ouch, did it hurt.
    I stopped, took care of my injury and then proceeded to go back to work installing the handrail. I got the job done without any further problems or injuries.

  • Faith in Jesus, not perfection, leads to God

    The word translated “gospel” in our English Bibles is simply the Greek word for “good news.”
    Martin Luther, the great protestant reformer, struggled for a long time to see it as “good news.” When he was a young man near the age of 21, he was caught in a thunderstorm in which a bolt of lightning hit the ground near him.
    Fearing for his life, he cried out to a saint and vowed to become a monk and follow the Lord if his life was spared.
