  • Worshipping or worrying?

    Genesis 8:20-21 says: “Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart, ‘Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures as I have done.’”

  • God is with each person through their stuggles

    Have you ever noticed how Jesus seems to be drawn to broken-hearted people, like lepers, prostitutes, the sad, the sick or the sinful? The shattered people.

  • Modern technology has made communication easier, but less personal

    In our everyday lives it is always a good idea to be in constant communication. Parents communicate with their children and children with parents. We always like to keep in touch with our relatives, co-workers, friends of the family and even casual acquaintances.

    There are many outlets that greatly facilitate the way we do this, cell phones, e-mails and text messaging. It is now actually harder to stay out of touch with someone, and there are fewer excuses we can make because it only takes us a few seconds to say “Hi, how you doing?”

  • New priest leads St. John’s church

  • ‘Of course I’m right’

    Years ago I wrote a book about idols, which is just another word for sin.

    An idol is whatever you turn to first — a person, possession, position, relationship, substance, belief or experience — for comfort, security, identity, meaning, etc. Basically, anything other than God.

    As I wrote the book, I got halfway through it and decided I was tired of being smacked upside the head with my own idolatry.

    Sheesh. All I wanted to do was write about other people’s idols/sin and make a boatload of money.

  • Intern shares passion for music, worshipping God

    By SARAH BEACH

    The News-Democrat

    Relevant Church’s summer intern has a passion for music. Though his family is musically inclined, Tom Casselman was never very active in music until his freshman year of high school. He never thought he would go to Bible College, either.

    Now, he leads the congregation of Relevant Church in services twice weekly, playing the piano for the service and leading the members in singing hymns.
