Dear Friends,

For the past few weeks I’ve been reading through the gospels as part of my morning devotions.  It’s always fascinating to me to see how Jesus never really seemed to deal with any two people in exactly the same way. Instead, He approached each person in a w...

Dear Friends,

On the way to work yesterday I came across a large bird in the middle of the road, feasting on the remains of a small, dead animal.  When the bird saw my car coming, it gripped the dead animal firmly in its claws, and tried to fly away.  Unfortunately, the...

Dear Friends,

Yesterday we had some local government officials stop by for a tour of our church facility.  They wanted to see the space because the city is doing construction in the neighborhood, and they would like to use some of the empty offices at our church for the...

Dear Friends,

This morning I woke up with an old hymn running through my mind.  It was “What A Friend We Have In Jesus”, and the phrase that kept playing on repeat in my mind was:  “What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear.  What a privilege to ca...

Dear Friends,

Dear Friends,

When I first heard about the Covid19 virus, it seemed like one of many news items from halfway around the world – sad, but removed from our daily lives.  However, that was January - and by March, everything had changed, and the virus was very much impactin...

Dear Friends,

This morning I was reading the story of Nicodemus, as it's told in John 3.  For those of you who aren't familiar with this story, Nicodemus was a religious man - a Pharisee, actually.  The Pharisees were a very strict sect of people who believed strongly t...

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...
