    “The Windshield or the Rearview Mirror”

    Year C: Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany

    People who know me know that I went to Wake Forest University.  They know that I bleed Black and Gold, pull for them win or lose (more time than not, lose, especially this basketball season!)  Stories are told how I have been known to roll my own yard after a big victory.  I am a […]

    “Learning What’s Important”

    Year C: Sixth Sunday after The Epiphany

    It is an expression that every parent hears.  It is usually during homework time, or right before a test.  You hear this gigantic sigh, and then the words of absolute frustration.  “I don’t know why I have to learn this.  I am never going to need to know this.” What “this” is depends on the […]

    “A Lesson in Evangelism”

    Year C – Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany

    February 10, 2018 It was another spring day in my home town.  Spring was the time of the year when the baseball team began to practice with great hopes.  Cherryville, North Carolina is and always has been a baseball town.  In a town that has seen cotton mills and trucking companies move away baseball is […]

    Why Do You Do What You Do?

    Year B - Fourth Sunday of Easter

    It happens to me all the time, and I hate it! I am sitting at home surfing through the channels, and there is that movie that I have wanted to see! It is on! There’s just one problem. It started 20 minutes ago! I have no idea who these people are—I mean in the movie. […]

    “Hands, Feet and Faith”

    Year B - Third Sunday of Easter

    Imagine for a moment that someone was going to write your biography. This is going to be the comprehensive authoritative story of your life. What stories are they going to tell? I got to thinking about that question this past week. There are some details that someone would have to include in my life story—if […]

    “The Goodness of Doubt”

    Year B - Second Sunday of Easter

    I have to confess, I miss it! (I’m not sure Anita does, but I do!) I miss the good old days of grocery store news! There, while you are waiting for the lady that has 58 items to find that coupon for $.25 off the price of detergent, trying to keep your calm, you secretly […]

    “The First Word”

    Year B – Easter – Resurrection of the Lord

    That is what we came for, isn’t it? Hallelujah! We came to hear and to sing “Christ the Lord is Risen Today, Alleluia!” This is the day of the church year when we really celebrate, when we just let go and make a joyful noise unto the Lord! Hallelujah! Lent is over! We don’t have […]
