  • Spiritual nourishment is one of many reasons to go to church

    This story was recently sent to me via e-mail. Hope you enjoy it.

    “A church-goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. ‘I’ve gone for 30 years now,’ he wrote, ‘and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So, I think I’m wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.’

  • Jesus saw the city and wept

    We are so familiar with the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. It was a brief moment of triumph as people laid down their cloaks like a red carpet and waved palm branches with abandon. What a frenzy of welcome for this superhero. (Luke 19:35-38)

    Immediately after, Luke says Jesus wept over that city. “If this day you only knew what makes for peace, but it is hidden from your eyes.” Jesus left Jerusalem a week later, carrying a cross to Calvary hill where he was crucified as a criminal — and people wept.

  • Hopewell church holds homecoming

    Hopewell Community Church, formerly Hopewell United Methodist, located on Locust Road in Milton, holds a three night revival at 7 p.m. Sept. 8-10.

  • ‘Come and See’

    On the feast day of St. Bartholomew on Aug. 24, I meditated upon the reading of the day, John 1: 45-51.

    Here we see Philip who found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote — Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”  Then Philip invited Nathanael, “Come and see.”

    Nathanael is identified as Bartholomew. Jesus called directly most of the Apostles. In the case of Bartholomew it was Philip who told him ‘come and see.’

  • Jesus’ actions drew criticism in chapters of the Bible

    Jesus said a lot of compelling and difficult things when He walked the earth.  A reading of the four Gospels in the New Testament portrays a man who had divine insight into the inner workings of the human soul.
