Does the Whole Bible Matter?

Matthew 5.17-20 I want to start out with a quiz.  I want you to write down your three favorite books of the Bible.  Where does your favorite passage come from?  Or if you know a story, but don’t know where it comes from, write that down.  Or just put them in your mind if you […]

A Valued Collection

Matthew 13.44-46 When I was in middle school, I got into a collecting phase.  I loved collecting stuff.  I had a pennant collection on my wall, with pennants from different sports teams and places I had been.  I had a little toy cannon collection, which I collected every time we visited a historic battlefield.  I […]

Getting Lost in the Weeds

I should have left well enough alone. I read through the whole article, but that’s where I made my mistake…I opened the Comments section.  Usually a mistake. You know what I am talking about, right?  Online articles often include space to comment about the article afterwards.  It is often anonymous, and can get pretty harsh.  […]

Right Where God Wants You

Rev. Cheryl Harader — Romans 6:1-11 6 What then are we to say? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound? 2 By no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it? 3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized […]

Laughing at God

Genesis 18.1-15 David and Lisa looked down at the pregnancy test.  A minus sign.  Again. David’s eyes filled with tears.  Lisa didn’t have any tears left. He went down in the basement, and she went to go sit on the porch swing by herself to collect her thoughts.  They had tried for so long.  They […]

The Great Promise

Matthew 28.16-20 “It’s Trinity Sunday, but people who have cancer probably do not care.”  That quote by Dr. Steven P. Eason I read this week jolted me into reality. He continues… “This is Trinity Sunday, but those young couples who cannot get pregnant probably do not care either…the family dealing with the wayward teenager, the […]
