The Way of The Cross

Hanging on the wall in my home office is a crucifix. No, there is nothing magical or miraculous about it. It is just a bit of formed metal and plastic; however, it does play an important reminder in my life. It is a reminder that my life has been bought with an incredible great price; […]

A Life of Great Grace and Mercy

Even though you refuse to retaliate and even prevent others from fighting back on your behalf, the hunter only relents for a moment. Then one day they are all alone.

Are We Sharing Hope or Fear and Confusion?

Oh the Outrage

I really try hard to avoid political posts. I find it very divisive and rarely helpful. However, it is important for Christians to be involved in the political arena, but with my role as a pastor I find my call to be more about sharing the truth of a life with Jesus.  I do ask […]

Expansion – My One Word for 2020 – Part II

Right before the turn of the new decade I declared, “Expansion,” as my one word for 2020. In that post I mentioned I really did not have a lot of clarity for how Expansion will impact my year. In just the few days since then I have gained some clarity.  You can read part one […]
