Good Stories

Good Stories Mark 2:1-12 Everyone loves a good story... We have some very talented “story tellers” in our church. Just last Sunday, during our Fellowship Time in Davis Hall, several of you shared stories... Stories as to why you’re a member here at West Point Prez... and how much the church, OUR church, means to you. Of course, the Bible is filled with good stories, too! Old Testament stories like... Noah’s Ark... to Jonah and the Whale, Moses parting the Red Sea... of course, we can’t leave out the New Testament! Like the accounts of Jesus’ Birth, Peter walking on the water... Jesus calming the storm... to the stories of the crucifixion and the Resurrection (which the greatest stories eve

Baptism of Repentance?

Baptism of Repentance? 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 Mark 1:1-4;9-11 One Sunday morning, the young son of a Baptist minister witnessed his very first baptism by immersion. The boy was fascinated by the baptism... and the next morning proceeded to baptize… you guessed it… his three cats... in the bathtub! The youngest kitten took it pretty well, and so did the younger cat... but the old family Tom Cat was a different story. The old feline struggled, flipping and flopping and clawing... and finally got away. With considerable effort the boy caught the old Tom again and proceeded with the “ceremony.” But the cat acted worse than ever, clawing and hissing, and scratching at the boy’s face. Finally, af
