Dear Friends,

One of the challenges which every Christian faces is making sure that we love people who are hard to love. We probably all have people in our lives who demand a lot of our energy, take up a lot of our time, and who don’t ever notice the effort we put into...

Dear Friends,

Earlier this week I was asked how to handle fear.  It came as part of a conversation I was having with a woman from our church who is feeling overwhelmed by fear because of all that’s happening with the Covid-19 virus.  It was a reasonable question, and on...

Dear Friends,

This morning I was reading in Joshua 14, and I came across the following statement:  “I am as strong now as I was when Moses sent me on that journey, and I can still travel and fight as well as I could then.”  (Joshua 14:11).  This comment is made by a man...

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the new year, and a new decade!  As we stand on the starting line of this new season of life, I know that many of us are thinking about the future - wondering what this new year and new decade will have for us.  And for a lot of us, as we look a...

Dear Friends,

Dear Friends,
