Is God Calling You?

Has God called you? Maybe you think, “No, God hasn’t called me. God hasn’t called me to become a missionary. Or to give away all my money. Or to move across the country and start a new church.” Does God always call us to do “big” things? Or does he sometimes call us to simple, mundane acts of service? Like visiting a lonely shut-in. Or inviting someone over for dinner? Or attending church every Sunday?  There are several examples in How COVID has affected us
Michelangelo's Creation of Adam

Confusion Illusion

As I write this, a group of 30 or so youth are heading to Cincinnati to visit the Ark and the Creation Museum. My initial prayer was that each of the youth attending (and adults) would have an appreciation for who God is and an even more firm belief that He created everything. There is a lot of confusion in our world about who God is, and whether one being created everything. Not all schools are able to even teach the idea How COVID has affected us

“C’mon Everybody! Let’s NOT do the Twist”

C’mon everybody! Let’s do the Twist! If you are like me, when you hear the beginning of this song, you run for the dance floor. I was listening to this song today and thinking about the lyrics. There aren’t many. “You’re Daddy’s sleeping, and your Momma ain’t around.” “we’re gonna twist and twist and twist till we tear the house down.” It made me start thinking about how people “twist” the Word of God. They twist and twist and twist How COVID has affected us

“It Came to Pass”

Summer is here!! Or is it? Several weeks ago, we had a few days in the 90’s and it felt like summer was FINALLY here. Then, the temperature dropped ,and we had to turn our heat back on. We’ve just come off another spell of 90-degree weather, summer seemingly here once again. But alas, the weather is dipping again! I’m sure we all can agree that summer needs to make up its mind. Let’s be honest, we all want Summer to come and stay! How COVID has affected us

What’s Next?

Do you ever sit around and think about what’s next? I have a list in my head of everything that is next. I have things that I’m preparing for work, Things that need to be done for my family, things that I’m looking forward to with friends, and upcoming obligations. They are all swirling around inside of my head. Sometimes it helps to write them out, sometimes it helps to put them on a physical calendar…but they are still up How COVID has affected us

A Real Page Turner

It is that time of year once again. Later this month our high school seniors will be walking across the stage and receiving their diplomas and heading off into the world. Some will go to work, some will go to college, some will go to the military, and some will go to trade school. Some, I hope not many or any will choose to do nothing. Next chapters are exciting. Sometimes next chapters are stressful and we get a little anxious about the unknown. However, How COVID has affected us

Update from H.O.P.E. Missions

I’m packed and ready to fly to Haiti. Lord willing, I’ll leave Michigan on Tuesday and arrive Wednesday, May 11 around noon. I’ve been planning and watching and listening and praying, looking for the right time to make a trip.  There will never be a perfect time, we just pray.  It’s in God’s time. I plan to go to Cap Haitian, no other in-country travel on this trip. I have invited several leaders in the churches we serve to come How COVID has affected us
May the Spirit be with You

May The Spirit Be With You

Today is May 4th, also known as Star Wars Day!! If you know me, it didn’t take you long to find out I’m a Star Wars nerd. So needless today say, today will be all about Star Wars. A common phrase spoken in almost every Star Wars movie is “May the force be with you”. It was a phrase individuals would say to one another to wish good luck or goodwill. It was often said as they parted ways or in the face of an impending challenge. This force is a key How COVID has affected us
The Bible App from Lifechurch.tv

Apps for Spiritual Growth

Bible app – Without a doubt, my go-to Bible app is the Bible by Life.Church.

Today the app features 2,062 Bible versions in 1,372 languages including audio Bibles and over 800 Bible plans to encourage daily Bible reading. The Kalkaska Church of Christ uses Events in the Bible app each week to share sermon notes, announcements, and much more. Get How COVID has affected us

Blessing of the Trout Festival

Tonight, as in the past couple of years, I will be offering a prayer of blessing on the Trout Festival. I don’t exactly know what I am supposed to be blessing and maybe I should have asked, but what should I be praying over our community for these few festive days? Or, more broadly, what would or should my prayer and your prayer be for this community God has placed us in? Our prayers ought to always include that those who don’t How COVID has affected us
