  • My Faith Made Complete

    This is the month we come together as a group of believers and stand shoulder to shoulder in unity to pray.
    On April 17, 1952, President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of Prayer into law in the United States. President Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the National Day of Prayer.

    You know the commercial about the man who, all throughout his life, thought he was of German descent and then once he had his ancestry DNA tested he learned he’s really Scottish and Irish?
    I have a friend who had her DNA tested last year and learned that she’s not so Irish as she had always thought. Turns out she’s mostly mumbo-jumbo European with very little Irish ancestry. (Her dark hair and olive complexion should’ve been a telltale clue.)

  • There’s nothing better, in ANY season

    “To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven.” — Ecclesiastes 3:1
    Today, I’d like to take a look at the different “seasons” we go through.
    A SEASON OF NEED
    Hebrews 4:16 tells us, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

    If the Rev. Larry Silverman knew anything it was that “Jesus paid it all.”
    Larry was co-pastor with his wife, Corinne, at a little local church, New Covenant Grace Fellowship.
    He died a few weeks ago after a two-year battle with cancer in his mouth, jaw and throat.
    His family told me Larry respected me, but we didn’t always agree on theological issues.
    One particular point of difference: “sinner” -- past or present tense.

  • “We All Scream for Ice Cream”

    Let me tell you something I enjoyed about the NCAA Basketball tournament besides the games, the commercials. I especially enjoyed the Capital One commercial featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Spike Lee and Charles Barkley.
    In a 30-second commercial those three are sitting in a car together headed to the tournament site, San Antonio. Charles says he is excited to be able to visit the “A La Mode”. Jackson corrects him by saying, “Charles, it is Alamo.”

    Easter has passed, but I’m still thinking about a part of the gospel story of Christ’s resurrection that I often miss.
    It happened on that Sunday.
    Early in the morning the women had gone to the tomb where they had placed Christ’s body on Friday after his crucifixion.
    The women found the tomb empty and an angel told them Jesus wasn’t there, that he had risen, just as he had said.
    That part of the story I’ve never forgotten.
    But in Luke’s gospel, there’s a detour that I don’t often remember.
