Celebration of Life for Jesus of Nazareth

It may be Friday, but Sunday is Coming

Easter Sunday will be here in a few short days. Christians all over the world will celebrate our Savior’s victory over sin and death. The entire Christian faith is centered on Jesus’ raising from the dead. However, we rarely think of Easter without first being reminded of Good Friday. Of course, there is nothing “good” about it since that’s the day we remember Jesus nailed to the Jewish cross and crucified. There seems to be a theme that emerges from these two events – How COVID has affected us

Let’s Move

I can’t get out of my head the whole idea of constant improvement.  Some may refer to it as being a lifelong learner.  I have a friend whose next-door neighbor was at a point in his life where he had all the money he needed and decided to start doing jobs he thought would be interesting.  He got a job at a fast food restaurant because he always thought he would be good with customers.  He left that job and How COVID has affected us

Reflecting on the Goodness of God

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” – Psalm 34:8  In the rhythm of life, we encounter moments of joy and moments of sorrow, peaks of triumph and valleys of despair. But, in the ebb and flow, one constant remains unwavering—the goodness of God. His goodness isn’t merely a concept to comprehend but a reality to experience. The song “Goodness of God” resonates with my heart as it echoes the How COVID has affected us

Devoted

I remember a story one of my professors told us during my college days. A missionary went to a remote village that had never heard the gospel message of Jesus before. They didn’t know what to expect but to their joy, the village welcomed them with open arms and were eager to hear what they had to say.  The missionary started in Genesis, and day by day, story by story, shared the entire Bible with the people. At one point How COVID has affected us

Your Teen and Social Media

It can be very daunting for some parents when their children know more than they do about the Social media platforms available on the Internet and Smartphones.

Happy Greatest Commandment Day!

It’s Valentine’s Day, so of course I need to write my article about love. In 1 John 4:8, it says that “God is love.” It says that if you don’t love you don’t know God. That seems pretty straightforward. Jesus said that people will know we are his disciples by how we love one another (John 13:35). Jesus also said, “Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friend” (John 15:13). When asked about what the greatest commandment was, Jesus answered, “Love How COVID has affected us

Death was Arrested

This year I am challenging myself to get to know the songs we sing on a little deeper level. I love the way music can help us approach the throne of God, each of us in a different way.   As I was listening through some of Sunday’s set list I came across a YouTube video that talked about the writing of Death was Arrested. The song is full of Biblical truths, so relating to the content has not been a How COVID has affected us

LOVING YOUR SPOUSE 

LOVING YOUR SPOUSE LIKE JESUS LOVES US I will never pretend to be an expert in anything. I wanted to write today about marriage. I have been married for 23.5 years. That may seem like a drop in the bucket to some of my older friends. And it may seem like an eternity to younger people. The truth is, it’s both! Depending on your perspective. Honestly, sometimes it feels like both to me! On our good days, I can fondly think, I How COVID has affected us
Ten Commandments Background

The Big 10

When thinking about the Ten Commandments, many view them as a bunch of outdated rules that we must follow to make God happy. Others, feel as though they are an impossible list to keep, so they don’t even try. Some even view them as God’s attempt to keep us from having fun. Many people misunderstand what the Ten Commandments are, but if we understood the context in which they were given they would truly come alive in a way we’ve How COVID has affected us

How to Have a Digital Faith

A digital faith? What does that even mean? Well, if you think of a computer or more specifically, a computer language, you can get some insight. When you dumb down a computer language whether it be Perl, C++, Python, Cobol, or whatever, it boils down to bits and bytes. Those bits are are made up of 0’s and 1’s. Like a light switch, they are either on or off, yes or no, true or false. It’s pretty simple.  What does that have How COVID has affected us
