Pastor’s June 2018 article

I’m not much of an adventurer. I know what I like and I’m content to stick with the “tried and true” rather than venturing into uncharted waters.

When I visited my daughter in Washington state last year, I discovered one of her agendas was getting me to eat oysters. When she informed me of her intentions, I balked. There was NO way I was going to eat oysters. I didn’t want to eat oysters and didn’t see any reason why I would.

May has arrived! Two big “M’s” of May are Mother’s Day and Memorial Day. We set both days aside to remember those who have made sacrifices and be thankful. Mother’s Day on May 13th reminds us what our mothers have done for us and provides an opportunity to say, “Thank you.” Memorial Day on May…

December 2017 Pastor’s Article

Traditions, such as putting up the tree, driving around the neighborhood looking at Christmas lights, making hot chocolate, throwing open the sash, stomping around on the housetop, or reminding the children that Santa is watching those who are naughty and those who are nice, make Christmas celebrations memorable and meaningful for generations. Perhaps you have…

Pastor’s Article – November 2017

For the past year, I’ve reflected on one Psalm a week. I felt spending the entire week with a Psalm and reading the Psalm’s entry in a commentary would be a good way to go deeper. A few weeks ago, I spent the week reflecting on Psalm 84. The psalmist writes, “1 How lovely is…
