Today's Features

  • A few weeks ago, my pastor’s sermon made me squirm in my seat.

    We’ve been studying the Old Testament book of Exodus. That’s the book that talks about God rescuing the Israelites from their centuries of slavery in Egypt, all the plagues upon the Egyptians, how Moses parted the Red Sea and fed the Israelites with manna -- honey-tasting bread from heaven.

    At one point, Moses meets with God on Mt. Sinai where God gives him two stone tablets with his law written on them.

    God’s law is a gift to his people, my pastor said.

  • “Never let a good reputation get in the way of trusting God.”

    That seems to be the unlikely motto behind the story of Jesus and Zacchaeus the tax collector in Luke 19:1-10.

  • February days in the 60s make for crowded boat ramps and golf courses during a time of year usually spent indoors.

    Everything, nature wise, seems a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. Buds show on lilac bushes, green grass already grows in bunches and the sound of lawn mowers permeates an afternoon backyard barbecue.

    The rare winter temperatures may alter white bass spawning runs as well.
