  • Lay that donkey down

    A young boy and an old man were walking with a donkey when a group of people passed by.

    “Isn’t that ridiculous that no one’s riding that donkey,” one person said.

    So, the old man told the boy to ride the donkey.

    Another group of people passed by and someone said, “That’s terrible! Look at that young boy riding that donkey while the old man walks.”

  • It doesn’t matter where, the Lord is always with us

    Jonah 1: “Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai, saying,  ‘Go at once to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before me.’ But Jonah set out to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. He went down to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid his fare and went on board, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of the Lord.”

  • This summer may be very hot, but it can be worse…

    In this month of July we have been through a very hot summer here in Carrollton. And almost everywhere in the United States, the weather stations have advised us to be careful when we go outside, to have water handy and to have functioning air conditioning units in our cars to be prepared for the hotter days.

    This reminds me that as Christians we have to be like the weather stations, informing and warning the people that if their ways of living do not change and they keep doing whatever they want they are heading to a very hot place, “Hell.”

  • Pearl of great price buried deep in time of ‘me first’

    Solomon was dreaming about his new ministry as king of God’s people Israel. King David, his father, had been a most worthy leader, and Solomon wanted so much to follow in his father’s footsteps and govern well.

    This young king understood the awesome privilege and responsibility he was facing (1 Kings 3:5-9).

  • Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Carroll County: Why we do what we do

    Plans are under way for our second walkathon, 9 a.m. to noon, Sept. 24 at county park to support the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Carrollton. Our second full school year is nearly upon us, and we look forward to the new mentoring friendships on the way.

    During our most recent planning meeting, a handful of board members started talking about why we serve as mentors and leaders in this effort to bring more quality adults into the lives of children. We came up with 10 solid reasons. Maybe they will influence you to come alongside us in this effort.

  • Church hosts conference for deaf
  • Small groups provide guidance, camaraderie, encouragement

    I really anticipate early Saturday mornings. I know that the following awaits me: good coffee, great conversations about life and the Bible, and deep friendships that encourage me as a husband, father and friend.

    No matter how long we gather together over coffee, I walk away strengthened, encouraged and challenged in my own life; for this, I am grateful.

    I am appreciative of what my friends can bring to the table on a Saturday morning, and I hope that the feeling is mutual.
