    It was a warm summer night in a town near Washington, D.C.
    A group of friends sat around a backyard table eating dinner when a young man with a gun appeared and interrupted the dinner party, according to a 2016 NPR story.
    “Give me your money or I’m going to start shooting,” he said, pointing the gun at one of the women.
    The people believed him; however, no one had any money on them.
    So, they started talking to the man, first trying to play on his guilt: “What would your mother think about you doing this?”

  • What brings people to church?

    Do you ever wonder what brings people to church?
    Not just on Christmas and Easter or Mother’s Day because it’ll keep your mom off your back, but week after week week -- willingly. Because you want to.
    Chances are, many of you who are reading this attend church regularly, although some of you don’t.
    If you don’t, do you ever wonder why others do?

  • Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the church

    Many of us have gone through turbulent times in our marriage but by working together, communicating and compromising we are able to mend the hurts. Our vows should mean something, not just say so as to be married. Remember the wedding lasts 30 minutes but the marriage is forever.
    Ephesians 5:25 says, “Husbands love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.”
    Last year in Jackson, Mississippi, a newspaper reported about a man whose wedding ring saved his life.

    Today I have the heebie jeebies.
    I’ve been listening to a podcast (that’s like a radio program that you download from the Internet) about fear: Why are people afraid? How can they get rid of fear?
    The podcast began with a story about woman with Urbach-Wiethe disease, a rare condition that has three symptoms: a scratchy voice, raised dots around the eyes and absolutely no sense of fear.
    The part of her brain that registers fear is calcified. She can be happy, sad, angry, feel love and feel hate, but she can’t feel fear.

  • God is able to be trusted

    In today’s world, there is a deceptive philosophy that says that no one can be trusted. This philosophy forces humanity to be skeptical of business owners, politicians, neighbors, family members, spouses, the medical field, etc.  This list could go on and on so that before it’s all said and done, we are made to believe that the whole world is out to get us, that no one is honest, and that survival depends solely upon our own instincts.

    The news was horrific and sordid: Church staff member arrested for a sexually salacious crime.
    Sadly commonplace, it happens all over the U.S. -- you just never expect it to happen to your church.
    But last week, it happened to mine when our former worship director was arrested and charged with multiple sex-related crimes against minors.
    A local sheriff’s detective called him a “textbook predator.”
    We as a church loved him -- still love him. And we as a church abhor what he has done.
