  • The story of the good Samaritan shows Christian outreach to help others

    One of the more threatening parables to anyone with a conscience is the parable of the good Samaritan. Considering that it is a parable about helping a person in dire straits, it’s not hard to understand why we cringe under the many verbs of helping the down and out man. What is most interesting to me is the unique difficulty it poses to people who consider themselves faithful to God. Kindness to those in need should be right up our alley, but the parable suggests that the good guys in the religious world have an Achilles heel in the mercy department.

  • Who do you trust in? Scripture shows how God is the answer

    It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation asked their new chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild.

    Since he was an Indian chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets.

    When he looked at the sky, he couldn’t tell what the weather was going to be. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.

  • Follow God’s plan: Use the right tools in every season of your life

    As you and I grow older, we are sometimes amazed at how fast the years go.   When I was a kid, I thought that 60 was old. Now as I have reached that age, I’ve changed my mind.

    Life is made up of seasons.  Not only do we in Kentucky enjoy the four full seasons of spring, summer, fall and winter, the differences of the seasons are usually detected by change. 

  • Nothing has changed if you haven’t changed

    I recently preached a sermon concerning this thought. Here are some excerpts from that sermon. I hope that they make you think about yourself and where you stand with your spiritual life.

  • Prayer offers faithful a connection with God

    Prayer is the life of the soul.

    Food and rest are essential to sustain human life; knowledge, art, and culture in general enrich the mental capabilities of men, but only prayer reveals and expands our spiritual faculties.

    God loves all of his creation, and in particular he loves each of us.  As it is natural for a child to want to see and converse with their parents, so it should also be natural and pleasant for us to converse with our Heavenly Father and to want to be in spiritual communion with him.

    This conversation with God is called prayer.

  • Christians living requires that people make church part of their fall routine

    The end of July is upon us, and with the close of the month also comes the winding down of summer.
    Sure, we have a few sweltering days ahead of us, and yes…the last day of summer is not until Sept. 21, but really, it is the coming of the new school year that signals the end of summer.  
    I know it is not necessarily a happy time for students and teachers, but for the rest of us, the beginning of school brings us back into a routine.
