“All?” Matthew 22:37-39 Every time I read our scripture lesson for today, it’s every bit as powerful and striking as it was the first time I ever read it! Do you & I love God with our whole heart? And with all our soul and mind (of course, the other Gospels add the word “strength”)? AND on top of that... do we love our neighbor in the same way? These are the tough questions raised in our Lesson today. Our love for God can’t be measured simply by being baptized, going to church, praying regularly, or even by professing to be a Follower of Christ. Loving God completely, wholly, is born out of loving God through our love of others. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all yo

I Am The Door

“I Am The Door” John 10:9-10 (NKJV) “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” This is the Word of God for the people of God... Thanks be to God. Amen. What’s the most important part of our church? Aside from the people... what’s the most important physical part of our church? Have you ever considered such a question? Is it the choir loft? The nursery? The windows? Maybe the communion table or the baptismal font! Maybe the pulpit! Some may say the Davis Hall (the Fellowship Hall). If

Extra-Ordinary Encounters

Extra-Ordinary Encounters Psalm 105:1-6;26-45 Exodus 3:1-12 Just mention the name “Moses” and the first thing that quite often comes to mind... for a lot of people... is... Charlton Heston... and his portrayal of Moses in the Hollywood epic, “The Ten Commandments.” Images of Moses holding the stone tables... or parting the Red Sea are kinda ingrained into our collective memory as a people of faith. Of course, if we don’t remember that... maybe we remember the stories from Sunday school, when we were children... of the baby Moses being placed in a basket and floated down the Nile River to safety. Still others may think of our lesson for today... and Moses’ encounter with God at the burning

You Are What You Eat!

You Are What You Eat John 6:35-51 John 6:52-60 Bread. Simple bread. I consider the very first person who ever mixed flour and yeast and baked it off to golden perfection to be among the greatest minds of the human race! Is there anything better than a loaf of fresh baked, warm bread? Biscuits, rolls... a little butter (and maybe a little Golden Eagle syrup)... it’s so good! Of course, bread’s not only good... it not only tastes good... it’s life giving. It’s foundational sustenance. In the not too distant past, bread was the most important staple of practically everyone’s diet. And in parts of our world, it still is... Without bread, you’d die... So when Jesus said, “I am the bread of

Things Hoped For

“Things Hoped For” Hebrews 11:1-6 Hebrews 11:29-12:3 Let me ask you all to think about something this morning... What is faith? How would you define your faith? I bet it’s harder to define than you initially imagine! And I say that, because faith is more... much more... than an attitude, or state of mind. Faith is actually a spiritual gift that compels us (as people of faith), to action; to do something; to step out in faith. “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen...” (Hebrews 11:1-2) I love that definition of faith... because we all have hopes, don’t we? *An expectant mother hopes that her child is born healthy... with 10 fingers, and 10 toes! *Fat
