• Methodists welcome everyone to share communion

    Do you celebrate the “Last Supper” or as it is referred to in the Methodist church “holy communion” in your church? If so, do you know why you do so?

  • Christ allows each to be themselves, not a hypocrite

    I’ve been following a spirited discussion among several of my newspaper’s anonymous “Sound Off” callers.

    If I’m following this correctly, it started with someone being appalled that people drink mimosas (champagne and orange juice) in a restaurant at 9 a.m. on a Sunday.

    Another caller is appalled that the first caller is appalled and says that caller should be in church and not in a restaurant anyway.

  • Blessed are the forgiven

    Over the course of the summer, our church has been doing a sermon series over select psalms during the morning worship service.

    It has been a wonderful blessing for me, and I pray a blessing for our people as well. I have personally found the psalms to be a treasure trove of help and support for living out the Christian life. Psalm 32 (one that we studied recently) is no exception as David paints a comforting picture of what it means to experience God’s forgiveness.

  • Good news for those crushed in spirit; God is on your side

    For the past several months I’ve been helping out a friend by posting inspirational content on a Face-book page she started called A Place of Grace, for people who struggle with drug addiction and also for their families.

    Every day I search the internet for messages of hope and encouragement for those who feel especially hopeless and discouraged, words and images that might help broken and struggling people.

  • Let God into your life, like in ‘House Crashers’

    I love watching TV shows where an expert comes to a person’s home or business in dire need and helps them turn around.

    Sometimes the expert yells at the person and the person pushes back, resenting the expert’s help, and it’s all high drama on camera. Bad words bleeped out, someone walks out in a huff, sometimes the whole thing is called off.

  • Jesus will be there to help when you are down and out

    On Saturday, July 20, Dawne Gee spoke at the ladies conference held at our church.  She shared a story about a person who fell into a hole.  Her illustration reminded me of an article shared in The Wittenburg Door, entitled “The Parable.”

         A man fell into a pit and could not get out.  A subjective person came by and said, “You only feel like you’re in a pit.”  An objective person came by and said, “It is logical that someone would have fallen into that pit.”

  • Life is life-ish yet God is faithful

    When there aren’t any words yet invented to describe all of life’s strangeness, I just call it “life-ish” -- life is life-ish.

    Life isn’t predictable. It’s not stable or same. About the only thing you can count on is that one day you might cry and the next day you might laugh, sigh, gasp and scream all in the same 24 hours.

    That’s life-ish.

  • With faith in God, one can relax, try new things

    Life is busy. At times, it is so busy it becomes hectic. As messages, questions and opportunities confronted me during this week Philippians 4:13 came to my mind. It reads like this in the New Revised Standard Version, “I can do all things through him (Christ) who strengthens me.”
