Words of the Week – Children of God Must Stand

Recently, my sermon was, “We are children of God, awesome!” This is an awesome thing about which to think. It’s an honor and a burden. It’s an honor because in the midst of chaos, we can have joy. Children of God know that we have nothing to worry about, that our deepest needs are being met and that we have answers to the world’s problems, if only the world would listen. Why do we feel this way? We feel this way because Jesus Christ said, “I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) This means, too, that we are overcomers, that

Words of the Week – Speak the Truth in Love

As people of God, we are to speak the truth in love. This is not always easy. In 2 Samuel 12: 1-7, after King David had committed adultery with Bathsheba and thought he had concealed the matter, God’s prophet, Nathan, approached King David and helped him to see that he had sinned and that God knew it. Approaching a king in those days with an accusation was a delicate matter. One could be relieved of his head! Nathan approached King David with a parable. He said to the king, “There were two men in a certain town, one rich and

Let Those Who Have Ears, Hear ‘Take the Vaccine!’

We are our ‘brothers’ keepers.’ News reports tell us that 99% of the deaths from the new strain of COVID-19, the Delta strain is among folk who have not been vaccinated. This is tragic. These deaths did not have to happen. I’ve heard some religious folk say, “God will protect me.” This is true, which is why he allowed the discovery of the vaccine in record time, near miraculous, it seems. Remember, God works, mostly, through people. The doctors, scientist and those who know such things have made it clear that the vaccine is as safe as it can possibly

Words of the Week – Unity

On Sunday, my sermon was “Our unity is our strength!”  While I was speaking to an audience of Christians, this is true even if one is not a person of faith.  Unity gives us protection, power, courage and strength.  These usually equal a certain level of success. Ideally, the concept starts in your nuclear family.  In this environment we learn that parents protect and provide for us. They encourage us to learn and do new things. As when we teach a toddler to walk.  The toddler falls, but under the watchful and encouraging eye of a parent, gets up and
