Now What?

When I was a kid, the ‘day after Christmas’ was just about the worst day of the year. All the months of anticipation…the looking through catalogs, making my ‘wish lists’, presenting it to Santa and my Parents, then waiting…and anticipating that Christmas morning celebration…now was over. All that was left to do was to clean […]

I Wonder…

I wonder what will happen tomorrow…or the day after tomorrow. Will the ’causes’ that I agreed with have passed? Will those I disagreed with have failed? Will the candidates I voted for have won, or been defeated? Obviously, I don’t know that, and no one does-despite what all the conspiracy theorists out there say! One […]

Pots and Kettles

If you are…ahem…at least ‘middle aged’, like I am, you have heard the phrase, ‘That’s like the Pot calling the Kettle black’.

One thing we can all agree on, however, is that ‘just because […]

No Rest for YOU!

One of my favorite ‘Seinfeld’ episodes from years ago was called ‘Soup Nazi’.

What Are YOU Here For?

Keys to Faith and Boldness

Last weekend, we had a group of young adults over at our house for a time of fun, food, and fellowship. Our ‘New Generation’ group has been a great addition to our church. Those young people who’ve graduated from High School and are moving on to college and careers need ‘a place to belong’…as we […]
