Doctrine matters. Truth matters. As Christians, we don't need to know a lot of things to make our lives count for Christ, but we do need to know some key, foundational truths that are simply breathtaking in their reality and overwhelming in their impact. This means going deep, deep into the Bible where we can swim for a lifetime and yet never reach the end of that ocean of...

Resurrected Spring

This frenzy of seasonal renewal also signals another yearly celebration, the event called, Easter. T

Spring is in the air, so the saying goes. Somehow the subfreezing temperature doesn't match the clich during this first week of spring 2018. Yet I heard spring birds chirping early this morning and saw the perennials thrusting green through the crusted soil in the garden. This frenzy of seasonal renewal also signals another yearly celebration, the event called, Easter. The...

I hope you are as exicted as I am for our semi-annual congregational meeting this Sunday! I'm so grateful for these opportunities to welcome new members and hear about what God is doing in and through so many of you. I love taking a step back during these meetings to be reminded of how good, gracious, and continually faithful He has been to us, even us. Yes, even us, a pe...

The Last Commandment of Christ

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and ...

Manny's Blog Post Graphic

A single sentence once changed my life. Words have power. Words formed into sentences are the building blocks of communication. Concise, clear captivating words combine to form ideas that change history. Personal and global direction pivots on words well composed. Jesus described as the "Word became flesh" opens multiple dimensions of meaning and possibility. God speaks a...

The First Christmas Song

Music fills the air at Christmas. Concert venues swell to capacity every December. Songs express the emotion of the heart. There was a special number that made it's debut on the first Christmas night. I'd like to consider the audience, the singers, the song and the response as a yuletide thought. The Audience Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in t...
