"Writing the Vision: Equipping & Empowering the People of God!"

Like the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times to know what the nation ought to do (I Chronicles 12:32); We, too, are Writing the Vision and Making it plain that they may run that read it (Habakkuk 2: 2 -4).


A Declaration of Gratitude

As we prepare our homes and hearts for the annual day of "Thanks" - giving I recommend that each of  us pause for a moment and actually utter the words "Thank you".

"To whom are we offering this Declaration of Gratefulness?", you might ask. Well, how about starting with those in our immediate circles of life - spouses, friends, and family members. We do 'hold certain truths', do we not, that equal beings deserve equal rec...

Should Christians Participate in Halloween

There's nothing new about this question, it's an old one and it has its defenders and its detractors. "Should", some ask, "Christians participate in devil worship?" After all, isn't it all about witches and goblins and hideous creatures from the dead?

Perhaps a brief look at history will give us some insight, here. Halloween, like Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve is the "evening /eve" before the Hallow? In many places ...

Here Comes the Judge: A Question of Faith and Politics

On a recent fall day in September 2020, President Donald J. Trump officially nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett as the replacement for  jurist, trailblazer,  and liberal icon, Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Ms. Barrett’s record suggests that she is a staunch conservative and indeed, she is on record as describing herself as being in lock step with her mentor, former, now-ceased, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia – the ...

I Just Called to Say I Love You!

In a world  filled with so much sound - from the hardly noticeable voice of the turtle (Song of Solomon 2:12) to the hustle-bustle of noisy city streets  to earth-shaking turbine dairy tractors, our world is filled with clamor. 

And it continues, from supersonic jets breaking the sound barrier to ear-piercing wails of protest, indeed, the hills, valleys, rocks, and rills are a-buzz.

But are these vibrations welcome sounds? Or are they simply t...

You Matter!

U Matter

One of the great blessings of our church is the many wonderful members and friends that the Lord has permitted us to come to know and to love.

In all of life there are few, precious few, blessings beyond friendship. Worship is the avenue in which we come to know more about God - his calming presence, and the saving grace each of us has in his son Jesus Christ. But it is in friendship that we experience intimacy and common interest.

The Poseidon Adventure

There's a storm brewing in America. A brew far more intense than one born  of wispy spirits gathered around a boiling cauldron -  and yet, absolutely no less foreboding. 

Ariel of Shakespeare's Tempest seems to have said it best in the swell of his wail when he cried out, hell is empty, and all the devils are here”!

Surely, he had to know that the Euroclydon into which he was about to plunge...

When Icons Fall

All across the American landscape changes are afoot. Some welcomed. Some not so. But clearly, they are demanding to be Seen-Heard-Engaged. Many of the constructs of our lives are being upended. Long-held norms are now more likely to be tagged, labeled, discarded as dinosaurs - useless and unwanted relics of a distant bygone era.

Almost daily we witness statues and tributes being torn down. The unmooring of our center unnervingly shifting with each new transition.

When the Church is Silent

WHEN THE CHURCH IS SILENT…

 The shepherds are mute and the lambs are frightened,. Shepherds, some too often,  smitten with lust - that of the flesh, that of the eyes, and the pride of life.

Sacred writ reminds us “for the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this...

Wearing a Mask - Prophetic or Prophylactic?

by: Johnny Golden

What is the chief purpose of the church? Some might say "saving souls," just as the Great Commission of Matthew 28:16 - 20 commands. Others might offer "helping others" (Missions),  particularly so in light of these extremely difficult  times and following Jesus's words of instruction  to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothes to the naked (homeless), visitations to the prisoners and care for the sick ( Matthew 25:35 -...
