However, what we see in the word of God is that there is nothing more powerful than prayer to send people out on a mission. This first Sunday of the year we will begin by looking at the power that prayer gives to move people out into the world on a God-given mission. This sermon will...

I think it's safe to say we all want to lead productive lives. We want to give ourselves to people and projects that add meaning and joy to our lives and theirs.

It can be frustra...

One simplistic expression of love is the feeling of attraction. In this manner one might say, "I love my wife Linda, my child John, my dog Farfel, Virginia Tech football, and chocolate chip...

Preparing for the Lord's Day This Advent season we have focused our attention on the theme of waiting.

Preparing for the Lord's Day In the sermon for this week, I make an important distinction between waiting for peace and waiting with peace. The difference between these two realities is expressed merely by a difference of preposition yet is experienced by a difference of magnitude. To wait for peace means that peace lies somewhere in the future. It is far off. It may even...

Preparing for the Lord's Day Throughout our lives we are often waiting. We wait for the alarm to wake us to a new day. We wait for the traffic lights to change as we drive to work/school. We wait for the work/school day to end to return to the comforts of home. Some of us are waiting to graduate from school, to hear from a job interview, to marry a fianc, to deliver a bab...

Some of these signs include cracks in the brickwork, doors, and windows that stick when you open them, sagging or uneven floors, or counters and cabinets that are separating from the walls.

Preparing for the Lord's Day As I write this post there is no clear winner of the 2020 Presidential election. It looks to be decided by the most razor-sharp of margins in a few battleground states. However, as Christians, there is no question as to who will ultimately be in control for the next four years. Whatever the outcome we know that the Lord Jesus is the King of ki...

Preparing for the Lord's Day With the elections this Tuesday, the ongoing navigation of the Coronavirus pandemic, and the persistent labor for racial and ethnic peace, there is much that could create anxiety and fear in the hearts of God's people.
