Words & Actions Galatians 5:16-26 Galatians 6:7-10 A man was stopped at a traffic light, waiting for the light to turn green. When the light finally changed, he was distracted in thought and didn’t budge. But the woman in the car behind him obviously had places to go and people to see... so she honked her horn. When he didn’t move... she honked again, and again... and within seconds she was pounding on the steering wheel and blowing her horn non-stop. Finally, just as the light turned yellow, the man woke up and drove through the light... leaving the women to sit through another red light... and she was livid! Still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her car window. She looked up to see the f

Follow My Example?

Follow My Example? Father's Day 2018 Matthew 10:40-42 A successful man was driving his new car through a poor part of town... when a pre-teen boy tried to flag him down. The man didn’t want to get involved, so he pretended he didn’t see the boy. But as he slowed down for a stop sign, he heard (and felt) a loud crash behind him.

Our phone’s cut off and I’ve been trying and tr

And if you’re anything like me, you can probably relate to what’s taking place here in Gospel lesson today. It all happened early-on in Jesus’ ministry... when word of his teaching and preaching and miracles was starting to spread: crowds of people were flocking to him, hoping to be healed or blessed or touched in some way. Jesus’ own family became concerned to the point that they “went to take charge of Jesus.” They didn’t understand what was going on - they knew he wasn’t eating right - and they thought he

The Question We All Ask

The Question We All Ask Job 38:1-11,16-18; Mark 4:35-41 It’s a question as old as faith itself: “How can a loving God, who is all good... and all powerful... allow bad things to happen to good people?” Of course, we usually condense this question down to just three letters... which are no less dramatic: W.H.Y. “Why?” It’s the question we all ask, isn’t it? “Why?” It’s the very same question, pondered by Job... as in the Old Testament story of Job. Despite Job’s trust in God, and his faithfulness, his life was in shambles! It was a mess! Job had lost his family... and his wealth... and his health. Why had all these bad things happened to him? His friends tried to convince Job that he ha
