  • In dedication to mothers

    Last Sunday, May 10, we celebrated Mother’s Day. One day out of the year, we have this beautiful opportunity to give back to the people who have given us so much: our moms. We love them (at times, maybe not so much) and as we get older, sometimes, we become them. Whether she carried you inside of her for nine months or is a non-blood related woman who has loved you like her own, most people can identify a person who they can be thankful for on this holiday.

  • Methodist church celebrates 225th anniversary at Masterson House

     On May 17, members of the Carrollton United Methodist Church are returning to where it all began in honor of the 225th anniversary of the congregation. In 1790, Methodists began meeting in the home of Richard and Sarah Masterson for worship. Little did they know that their gatherings would continue unbroken for more than two centuries. In celebration, the church’s May 17 Sunday service will be held outdoors at the Masterson House at 10:45 a.m.

  • Grace and roller skating

    I have never been good at roller skating (or anything that requires balance for that matter).  However, when I was a children’s pastor in another part of the state, I did take a group of church kids to the local roller rink.  One of the boys who went was named Will, and he skated like I remember skating.  He probably fell at least ten times and when he hit the ground, he hit hard.  In fact, he fell so hard that the tops of his shins, right below his knees, were completely bruised.

  • Debate on spiritual gifts continues

    The debate over spiritual gifts has been going on in the local churches of this age for many years. Although this debate is not new to the church, we are still in disagreement when it pertains to what the Bible states about spiritual gifts. The Bible must be the final authority on all questions pertaining to its contents. Therefore we must search the scriptures to find out, what are spiritual gifts, their purpose and are all of the spiritual gifts still given today?

  • Living a joyful life in an unhappy world

    One must only sit in front of a television set, newspaper, or social media sites to see news of unhappiness and despair in the communities and world that we live in. What are the problems and issues that we face as a community as well as in our personal existence? The negative issues are too numerous to count and most of the time too depressing to think about.

  • Don’t be bogged down, let God help guide you through your battles

    Life is so busy! We all have many things to do, things to see, places to go, people to meet… The list never ends! There never seems to be enough hours in the day. Have you ever felt that way? Is that your life now?

    Sometimes it isn’t just the clock that overwhelms us. We can get discouraged, frustrated, tired, and feel like nothing is going right in our life, our job, or our relationships. We come to believe within ourselves that it will always be this way and surely never get better.
