    SILAS BAPTIST
    Mike Wainright will be performing at Silas Baptist Church, 274 Silas Road, on Sunday, Sept. 30, at 6 p.m.
    Wainright is a gospel singer who believes it’s more than the music it’s the message. No matter where you are in your life he believes God has a song for you
    He wants to share what God has done in his life and hopefully help others. The songs he sings are uplifting and inspirational. He believes that’s the way we should live our lives.

  • Thanks in trial, tribulation and trouble

    Last week I spoke at a women’s lunch thing at a local church.
    The woman who invited me told me that their theme was thankfulness.
    That was several months ago when the sky was blue, the humidity was low and I think someone brought in cake to work that day, so of course I said I’d love to talk about being thankful.
    After all, it’s easy to give thanks when all is well.
    And then in the weeks leading up to my talk, life just sort of fell apart. In many ways it feels like the gates of hell opened up and dumped on my family.

    I’m so glad Jesus chose Peter to be one of His disciples, because he’s like us--curious, bull-headed, reckless, impulsive, but sometimes weak.
    One of the best known scenes from Peter’s life happened when the disciples were in a boat, and Jesus came walking on the water. They thought he was a ghost, but Jesus immediately said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

    One of my favorite things to do is sit on my couch and look out our big back window and watch the wind blow through the trees.
    It reminds me of the conversation Jesus once had with a religious leader named Nicodemus.
    Talking about the need for a person to be transformed by the Holy Spirit, Jesus told him that God’s Spirit is like the wind.
    “It blows wherever it pleases,” Jesus said. “You can hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it’s going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit” (John 3:8).

  • Are you a Christian or a Disciple?

            I recently heard a message by a Christian leader who asked two questions that I have not been able to get out of my head since I heard them.
    He told of an experience he had when he was a relatively new Christian. He was in college at the time and traveling overseas. Waiting in his seat on the plane as it loaded, he was wondering who was going to be his seat partner for the long flight.

    Years ago, my granddaughter Caroline couldn’t be trusted to not make a run for it in a crowd.
    As a toddler, she was notorious for breaking loose from my daughter’s grasp and taking off running. She was also fearless and overly friendly when it came  to approaching strangers and, if given the chance, would follow anyone anywhere, especially if offered candy or a puppy or a sip of Diet Coke.

  • Survival guide for the soul

    When I was working as a summer camp counselor at Boy Scout camp, one of my favorite merit badges to teach was Wilderness Survival.  
    For one night, I would take my campers out away from the tents and dining hall and latrines to a far area of camp and allow them to test their skills.  
    They would build a shelter without anything but a pocket knife, they would start a fire with no matches or lighter, they would cook with no utensils, and they would sleep out (in theiSurvival Guide for the Soul
