• Share hope with others

    Although grace is free, hope recently cost me $8 on Etsy, the website where people sell their handiwork.

    For $8 I bought a wire bracelet that forms the word “hope,” which I’ve been wearing all week.

    Lately, hope has been my thing. I was talking with a tattoo artist for a story I’m working on and told him if I ever got a tattoo it would be the word hope in simple script, lower-case lettering, written very small, with a period at the end. (hope.)

    First Apostolic holds ‘Friend Sunday’

  • Don’t hide your talents: Faithfullness means being committed to God’s plan
  • Davy installed as pastor
  • Get in the game: Become a member of God’s team

    We live in a basketball crazy state with the universities of Kentucky, Louisville and Indiana.  Many seasons, these teams are contending for a national championship. Great passion is loosed for all supporters who love their teams. From youth to high school and on to college, people love to root for a winner.

    Life is like a game—and God has a lot to say about life. Life and basketball have a lot in common. Basketball has four quarters: Each quarter has a specific time to it. It takes four quarters to complete a game.

  • We are challenged to dedicate ourselves spiritually to God

    I seem to challenge people in my articles and so today will be no different.  I am not trying to stir up an argument, but rather am trying to make you think about yourself and God.

    There are plenty of brave, committed and loyal people in this world. We see it in our military, we see movies made about them and we sometimes have them personally in our lives. When seeing these kinds of things, they stir me inside to do better.
