Hope for the Future

You Really Do Need Negative People in Your Life

When Patriotism Becomes and Idol

On the Fourth of July we celebrate the birth of the United States of America. Many families will spend the day at the lake or beach grilling hot dogs and hamburgers. We are far from perfect and there are dark spots on our past and even our present but I still believe we are one […]

Manhood: A Father’s Impact

Almost 24% of kids in the U.S. grow up without a father and many more have grown up with an unhealthy father child relationship. A few days ago I started the Wild Life devotional / Bible reading plan on the YouVersion app (available for Apple and Android or Bible.com on the computer). The plan covers the […]

Philippians 4:13 – It Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Does

I am able to do all things through Christ who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:13 This has become one of the most misquoted Bible verses. It often finds its way into a sermon that is more of a motivational speech. Also, it is often used by those who are starting their own business or other […]

Effective – My One Word for 2018

I am not sure who started the one word craze but in 2015 my word was “Generous.” In 2016 it was “Focus.” I did not have one for 2017. I am not one to randomly pick a word the word has to come to me. Our associate Pastor was preaching on New Year’s Eve and […]
