Can You Imagine Jesus?

by

Can you imagine Jesus standing at the church building door saying, “You aren’t dressed appropriately? You can’t worship my Father. Go home.” I can’t. Can you imagine him saying, “You have too many tattoos? You’re not welcome here.” I can’t. Can you imagine Jesus going down the line of people coming in the church building […]

The Epistle of Diognetus

by

This powerful early Christian writing is from an anonymous second-century letter, The Epistle to Diognetus. It says about Christians: “They dwell in their own countries, but simply as sojourners. As citizens, they share in all things with others, and yet endure all things as if foreigners. Every foreign land is to them as their native […]

Tantalus

by

There’s mythical story that is told of Tantalus, a king who had been found guilty of giving the secrets of the Greek gods to mortal men. His punishment was to be placed in the river called Hades. The water in the river came just up to his chin. Hanging and dangling over his head were […]

And God said, “I did.”

by

I asked, “God, why don’t you do something to help the hurting?” And God said, “I did.” I asked, “God, why don’t you do something to feed the hungry?” And God said, “I did.” I asked, “God, why don’t you do something to train more preachers?” And God said, “I did.” I asked, “God, why […]

FINDING DORY – Are you in need of rescue?

by

One of my favorite movies is “Finding Nemo.” I thought it was done so well. My favorite part of the movie was the great story line about a father’s love for his son and all that he was willing to do to get him back. Disney has just released the next movie in the series […]

The Holes In His Hands

by

“Daddy, does Jesus still have the holes in his hands from hanging on the cross?” I didn’t answer her immediately. To be completely honest, her question sort of blew us away. For a moment I just sat still and marveled that such a profound, deep theological question could come from our three-year-old daughter’s brain. It’s […]

Work Camp 2022

Thank you for helping to make Work Camp 2022 a huge success! This year, we had 45+ people come and help to serve our community. Several women worked extremely hard to keep us fed throughout the week. We built five ramps as well as several decks and handrails in four days! Several houses were power […]

Tests

by

Whenever a teacher administers a test in school, he or she never has much to say during the test. Everything is silent during the test. The teacher says nothing because the test is designed to examine what you currently know based on what the teacher has already taught you. Once you receive a test, you […]

Who To Tell?

by

One bright Sunday morning a preacher woke up and saw how blue the sky was and how warm the sun, and decided he would rather play golf than preach. He phoned a preacher friend, and feigning illness asked him to preach in his place. It wasn’t long before our friend was on the fairway, his […]

Be Careful Little Eyes

by

As it concerns the power of example, the words of a children’s [song] strike to the heart of what should be on the minds of Christian parents. In sequential order, the song cautions little eyes, ears, and hands to be careful about what they see, hear, and do. The chorus provides reason for such earnest […]
