  • God never says, ‘Oops!’

    A local man named Ed will never forget his 76th birthday, Sept. 22.

    He and his wife, Marno, took a cruise as a birthday celebration. While at sea, Ed started bleeding internally and ended up in the ship’s infirmary, where they gave him blood transfusions. Meanwhile, word got out among the other passengers, many of whom volunteered to donate their own blood.

    However, the infirmary ran out of blood bags, so even though Ed had donors, the donors couldn’t donate.

  • The Bible answers our big questions on death

    I find Halloween to be a very interesting cultural holiday, though not because of the costumes and candy.

    Trick-or-treating makes complete sense to me. Costumes are fun, candy tastes good…therefore, kids love trick-or-treating — mine included. 

    Instead, what I find interesting about the holiday, is that it truly reveals our fascination with death. It’s a theme that runs through the month of October.

  • Marriage is God’s creation and is defined in the Bible

    The Bible teaches that marriage was instituted by God himself (Genesis 2:24). The Bible also teaches that the woman was taken out of the man and brought to Adam (Genesis 2:21-22).

    The reason for the creation of woman, and her presentation to Adam, was to meet his loneliness by completing him (Genesis 2:18). The biblical marriage is to last a lifetime, understanding that it is not a contract between the man and the woman, instead, it is a covenant marriage between the man, the woman, and God (Matthew 19:6).

  • Project Comfort provides seniors needed support to prepare for the winter

    Stop! Look! Listen! Autumn embraces our community. Its radiant mixture of color, its puffy-white and sky-blue horizon, its gentle breezes symbolize the life cycle of death and resurrection. Our good and gracious God designed it so from the dawn of creation. God’s wisdom abounds in this unique season. Blessed be God! Yes or yes?

  • Calming of the storm comes with one’s faith

    As you read this I will have returned from my vacation at the beach, having returned to deadlines and ringing phones and not enough hours in the day and probably too much caffeine and not enough exercise and sleep.

    But today, as I write this, I’m still on vacation, watching the gulf waters crash rhythmically on the shore. I’ve been out here, sitting on the sand, not exactly comfortable but transfixed on the vastness of the green-gray water in front of me.

  • Christ can help everyone break chains of addiction

    I had a conversation with a man earlier this month who was truly struggling with life.

    Down on his luck, hungry, broke, and tired he came by my door. I sat with him and listened to his story and near the end I said “God wants to help you through this.”
