Letter From the Pastor – February 4, 2018

Do you remember, from your childhood days, the neighborhood football game when everyone wanted to play quarterback?  Sometimes you’d stand around and argue and take forever getting started.  Usually the way it was resolved was that the one who owned the ball got to call the plays.  But finally, everyone had to agree to play a different position, otherwise you could not even have a game! Then, if you stayed with the sport and gave yourself a little time to grow up, you discovered that it can be just as much fun to throw a good block as it is […]

Letter From the Pastor – January 28, 2018

                  During His earthly ministry, Jesus repeatedly confronted people with a challenge to come follow Him.  And some of His first disciples did that in a very literal sense.  They quit their jobs, they left their homes, and they followed Jesus where He went.  Peter, Andrew, James and John were fishermen.  They left their boats and nets and went after Jesus.  Matthew was a tax collector.  He walked out of his office, closed the door behind him, and went after Jesus.                  But what about you and me?  Does the call to […]

Letter From the Pastor – January 21, 2018

                A little boy once asked if God made the alligators.  The standard and predictable answer was given, “Yes, son, God made everything.”  Then the little boy responded with one more question.  “Why did He make them so mean?”                 Life is fraught with mystery.  Everywhere the question, “Why?” raises its head.  Why war?  Why poverty? Why disease? Why earthquakes? Why floods? Why human suffering and heartbreak manifested in a thousand ways?  All of these are questions to which we do not have an answer.                 We seem to live by the clock.  […]

As we know, modern technology has enabled us to take wonderful photos of the  human fetus living within his or her mother’s womb.  This is a great help to doctors in their care for the pre-born child.  However, it can also provide some with efficient means to invade this most sacred place – the very womb of a mother – and kill its helpless human    inhabitant.  As you may know, every hour about two hundred babies will be aborted in this country alone.  Just take a moment to think about this fact.  That means that about 120,000 babies per month […]

Letter From the Pastor – January 7, 2018

                I remember reading a story about a businessman in San Antonio, Texas, who parked his shiny new automobile outside a downtown bank and went inside.  When he returned he found a little shoeshine boy examining the car in wide-eyed amazement.  As he opened the door to get in, the little boy said, “Is this your car Mister?”  “Yes, Son, it’s my car.”  “Where did you get it?”  the little boy wanted to know.  So the man explained that the car had been given to him as a birthday present from his brother.  […]
