  • Don’t carve hurt in stone, let it blow away in sands

  • IN GOD'S HOUSE

    I spent several hours last week preparing my Bible study lessons on the Book of Genesis. It is amazing to compare the story of creation to life as it is today.

    The study on creation helped me, more and more, to see life of God in every one and in every thing. I see the vibration of God’s life everywhere.

    These days, all of us enjoy the sunrise and sunset.

  • Follow Samaritan’s example by putting others’ needs first

    I read recently of an experiment that took place in 1970. Two psychologists from Princeton University gathered a group of seminary students and told them that they were to give a brief message to a group of their professors.

    Some of the students were given adequate time to prepare and adequate time to get across campus. Others were not. The ones who were not were told that they were already running late. This group was given only a few minutes to put together a talk and to get to where they were to deliver their message.

  • Family Worship collects donations to assist in Joplin, Mo. disaster relief

    The Family Worship Center in Carrollton is spearheading a relief effort in support of those affected by the recent tornado in Joplin, Mo.

    Currently, many of the residents of Joplin are without electricity and water, so many of the items being sent (canned goods, boxed foods, etc.) are currently unusable.

    Those wishing to support the relief efforts may donate the following items:

    •Gift cards from Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target or Walmart

    •Bottled water and protein bars

  • Draw from deep within to replenish the human soul

    In his book, “The Kingdom Within,” John Sanford tells about a well at an old farmhouse in New Hampshire where his family spent their summers. For many years, the house did not have modern plumbing or electricity; all the water came from the well outside the front door. The water was unusually clear and cool, and the well never ran dry, even during the hottest summers when other families had to haul water from a nearby lake.

  • Passages help to answer questions about the Bible

    You might ask yourself the question: Is the Bible the book for me? Well I can honestly tell you, the Bible is the book that God has left for every human being, from the youngest to the oldest. It is an invaluable book; it can transform the life of everyone. God’s advice is timeless and is what He desires for humanity.

    How would my life be if I followed God’s Word:

    • I would understand that there is a trial after death. Hebrews 9:27

    •I would obey the commands of God. Psalms 119:60

  • Easter ‘alleluia’ resonates until feast of Pentecost

    Have you seen the large wooden cross in our churchyard on Fifth Street? I watch people staring at the draped cross as they walk or drive by.

    Some people in the community have asked me why that “white rag” is hanging on the cross. Once in a while, young people rearrange the cloth just for fun.

    Periodically, I wash and iron the cloth because the wind and rain and birds take their toll on it. I am so happy that it is not being ignored.
