    “Called to Liberty”

    Year C – Third Sunday after Pentecost, Proper 8 (13)

    Freedom – let it ring out to all people.  Freedom is a precious word, one that I cherish so very much.  All people do not know the freedom that we have in America.  America was founded on the very premise of liberty.  Our forefathers struggled and fought against oppression, tyranny, and the harsh hand of […]

    “Painful Moments”

    Year C: Second Sunday after Pentecost.

    Is there something in your life that you are running away from or would like to escape?  Is there something in your past that is troubling you and you’d do anything to get away from it?  Perhaps there’s something that has happened to you recently which makes you want to just disappear. During my Junior […]

    “Faith Leads to Hope”

    Year C - Trinity Sunday - First Sunday after Pentecost

    I was very blessed to have been raised in a family that believed in Jesus Christ and practiced that faith and attended church regularly.  My grandfather was a Baptist minister and I recall sitting in his home office and making my profession of faith in Christ.  At the age of seven he baptized me in […]

    "Something New"

    Year C - Day of Pentecost

    Do you remember as a kid getting a new pair of sneakers?  Every year in late summer, my mother would take my brothers and me to the department store to fit us for new school clothes and sneakers.  I especially loved getting new red Converse sneakers!  I promise you, when I put them on and […]

    “A Story of Freedom”

    Year C - Seventh Sunday of Easter

    I. Introduction Freedom is a precious word.  How we treasure freedom.  Freedom can be defined as the right to act, speak, or think as one chooses without restraint.  Freedom can also be defined as the state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.  We find both definitions of freedom in this passage of Scripture. Acts 16:16-40 tells […]

    “Poor in Spirit”

    Year A - Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany

    How wonderful it would be to sit at the feet of Jesus – to hear him teach the truths of God with authority and wisdom!  As disciples, we’re to go forth and teach others to obey everything Jesus has taught and commanded us in his word (Matthew 28:20). I’ve heard it said that preaching helps […]

    “A Spiritual Epiphany”

    Year A - Third Sunday after the Epiphany

    An epiphany is a moment in time when you suddenly understand or become aware of something that is very important to you.  Can you recall your very first epiphany?  As a second grader, I was the youngest student in the classroom.  Due to my cognitive immaturity, I sometimes struggled with newly introduced concepts.  Mrs. Chandler, […]

    “Gully Theology”

    Year A - Second Sunday after the Epiphany

    I imagine David the psalmist recalled his shepherding days when he had to pull a few stray sheep out of the gullies.  Just perhaps those memories inspired him to write this beautiful psalm oozing like a filled pastry, full of the wondrous truths of God.  If your current life situation makes you feel like a […]

    “New Things I Declare”

    Year A - First Sunday after Epiphany

    Do you like new things?  New things can be exciting as well as frightening.  With new things come change and responsibility.  In the past year, my wife and I have gone from having no grandchildren to have two healthy grandsons, born just four months apart.  During the pregnancies of our son’s wife and our daughter, […]

    “Mountains and Valleys”

    Year B – First Sunday in Lent

    God is Always Working As Mark begins his Gospel, he states, “The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God” (1:1). Then he speaks of God working in the lives of His people, as He prepares for the coming of the Christ, the Messiah, the Holy One of God. God is working […]
