Pastor’s Pen

Join a Growing Movement . . .

The Apostle Paul took spiritual growth seriously.  Hear his passionate plea in Galatians 4:19, “my little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you!.” Paul pictures a mother, who after giving birth, finds herself going through the pains of childbirth all over again, watching her children…

A Step in the Right Direction

Well, it’s early in the New Year and many of us want to improve something. The New Year is a time for scribbling down resolutions, for making new goals.  And most New Year’s resolutions have something to do with self-improvement; and more specifically, our waistlines. Before the fireworks announce the New Year on New Year’s…

There’s been a line of a Christmas Carol going through my mind in these days leading up to Christmas: the hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight. That line is from the very familiar carol, O Little Town of Bethlehem. It’s quite a claim isn’t it? All our desires and…

It’s been said that if it isn’t on Google, it doesn’t exist. Google is the world’s most used search engine and has become synonymous with the word search as each day it handles over 3.5 billion searches. Don’t know the answer? Google it. We use the term Googling to describe the search for information. Once…

Every Life has a Story . . .

Every day we have an opportunity to help someone. Our personal experiences can be a means of helping someone else find hope and encouragement. Mark chapter 5 tells the story of a man whose life was profoundly changed.  Notice what Jesus told this man to do in verse 19:  “Go home to your friends and tell…

It has never been easier to express who we are and what we believe with the rest of the world. So many people are trying their best to create viral content. Viral content takes…

School’s Out for Summer

There are many excited children today. Summer vacation has arrived. It’s a time to enjoy a change of pace, travel, campfires and other summer fun. It’s hard to argue that we live in a hurried culture. We are always trying to get there more quickly and get things done faster. Our lives can be described…
