  • Marriage is not outdated; God created this institution

    I have been thinking about marriage every day for almost six weeks. Not the prospect of getting married—I have already taken the plunge and even have a ring that I wear each day to prove it. Rather, marriage has been on my mind partly because weddings and anniversaries are prevalent this time of year and partly because marriage has been the topic of my sermons in recent weeks.  

  • Marriage joins a couple as one in unity of peace

    Two major happenings took place for me in January earlier this year.

    First, I got a year older. Second, I got to celebrate being married a year longer. That makes 35 years together for my wife Pam and I. And they said it wouldn’t last.

    Some people don’t understand what marriage is really all about. From the union of the first man and first woman, God has been clear about the purpose of the marriage relationship: “a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)

  • Don’t focus on the negative, look to find some positive

    We live in a world that tends to focus on the negative. As an architecture student from the university of Kentucky, I know a little about what is called a critical review.

    I used to spend weeks including several sleepless nights preparing a set of drawings to clearly reflect my design ideas, only to have them ripped to shreds by my peers and professors. And it wasn’t just my ideas but everyone. The belief was that we needed to be able to defend ourselves against an onslaught of negativity.

  • Look to the Lord to help with ‘soul pain’ suffering

    How many times have we gone through very difficult times in our lives; — being in a car accident, going to the hospital for an emergency or having an accident at work or at home. With time we find a way to overcome them, but they always leave us with scars.

    But there are other kinds of pain, like when parents get a divorce, having a family member in jail, when someone special in our lives passes away, having a family member that’s an alcoholic or a drug addict.

  • ‘I am the Good Shepherd’

    We continue celebrating the Easter Season, full of joy and gratitude for the gift of salvation we have received in Christ Jesus.

    This past Sunday in our church we focused on the gospel of St. John 10:11-18. Jesus said, “I am the Good Shepherd.” I remember learning that the image of Jesus as Shepherd was the one first used in the early church. The faithful of the pristine church understood from lived experience the horror of the Roman death sentence.
