  • Flag Day deserves to be recognized

    Flag Day commemorates the official adoption of the Stars and Stripes as our national symbol, an action taken by the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1777.

    Usually this isn’t much of a holiday. Stores are busy, federal and state offices are open, and the US Postal Service runs the mail. Come June 14 each year, the vast majority of Americans probably have no idea that a holiday is being observed.

    I believe Flag Day deserves better. So let’s pause for just a minute to reflect on why.

  • Social media posts can have real life repercussions

    Technology has become one of those buzzwords that can mean a lot of different things or nothing really at all. It is interesting that we have such words in our language. I love it when someone answers a question with a very lengthy, high in vocabulary sentence, but when you break it down they really did not say much at all. I think technology has fallen into that category.

    2 Timothy 1:7 ESV

    For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

    Often preachers such as myself mention that we as people of Christ are the Body of Christ, the physical attachments that are Christ’s tools and servants in this world. As I write this, I think of one’s mouth as being used as the physical Body of Christ.
