Pastor’s November 2018 Newsletter Article

For most of my life, November was simply the month before December and after October which contained Thanksgiving. If you have lived in America for any time at all, you probably already know about the annual Thanksgiving celebration; food, family, and football. Oh, yea, giving thanks is part of the holiday too. Even though I…

Pastor’s September 2018 Newsletter Article

In my last newsletter article, I mentioned I was an introvert. Some found that hard to believe. For those who still wonder, it wasn’t a typo. I am an introvert. I’ve taken various assessments and I usually end up around 96% introverted.     Introverts are stereotyped as being off in a corner, held up in their room,…

“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” – Vincent Van Gogh A 7’3″ basketball player didn’t start out that tall. The 350-pound lineman was much lighter at one time.

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.

Pastor’s April 2018 Article

Now What? It was over. All the work, all the training, and all the preparation were finally over. As I reflected upon the previous six years of staying up late, working hard, and looking forward, the question that formed was, “What now?” Now that I had graduated, what would I do? Would I continue on the…

Pastor’s March 2018 Newsletter Article

We are right smack in the middle of Lent. This year, I decided to give up chocolate. Why? Well, I like chocolate. I really like chocolate. I had a hard time finding something to give up. Over the past several years, I’ve stopped most of my unhealthy eating. I don’t drink soda. I’ve gotten away from…

Loving and Lent

Congratulations! You’ve made it to February and there’s a celebration of love on the horizon. That isn’t all. Lent is hot on Valentine Day’s heels. So on February 14th, we celebrate Valentine’s Day (if you celebrate that day) and also enter into a holy observation of Lent. It’s appropriate a day celebrating love should be…

Pastor’s January 2018 Article

My family and I want to thank all of you for the wonderful Christmas gift! God continues to use all of you as a blessing. I know It’s January and I should probably write an about resolutions. You may have a list, perhaps a long list, of potential resolutions to choose from, but I’m all…
