Why A Series On Our Origin, Life, and Death?

By | 2014-09-24T14:03:24+00:00 September 24th, 2014|Categories: Features, Pastor Blog|

I recently became intrigued by painter Paul Gauguin’s Tahitian painting which he titled in the upper corner in French: Where Do We Come From?  What Are We?  Where Are We Going?  (D'où Venons Nous / Que Sommes Nous / Où Allons Nous). He intended it to be his last painting.  Much has been written about the [...]

What Does the World See?

By | 2013-06-24T13:15:41+00:00 June 24th, 2013|Categories: Pastor Blog|

Ask yourself, "what are the things in life that are most important to me?"  Or, if you really want to get serious, ask "what am I willing to die for?"  What is it that the world sees in us as Christians that they would find appealing for their own lives? If the world could take a [...]

City of God

By | 2013-06-17T14:04:26+00:00 June 17th, 2013|Categories: Pastor Blog|

Malcolm Muggeridge said in an address in 1985 that if you turn your imagination to Carthage in 410AD, you’ll hear Augustine receiving the news that Rome has been sacked, and the barbarians have taken over.  Augustine's first thought is to reassure his flock with these words: "If this catastrophe is indeed true it must be God’s [...]

Which Book?

By | 2013-06-10T06:55:55+00:00 June 10th, 2013|Categories: Pastor Blog|

I love islands, I think I always have, but I wouldn’t want to be stranded on one... Oh, maybe for a few weeks perhaps.  I'd want to find a way off because there’s something in the human spirit that seeks companionship.  In the Christian — the passionate Christian — there is yet one more instinct, and [...]

Greater Than Our Hearts

By | 2013-06-03T11:07:40+00:00 June 3rd, 2013|Categories: Pastor Blog|

The world wants to present you with all manner of counterfeits.  But only in God can we bring our longings, our fears, and our probing questions before his throne of grace and let the light of Jesus’s presence shine into every dark and confusing place in our lives.  ...And that is a message of hope meant [...]

Doubting Thomas?

By | 2013-05-15T08:41:54+00:00 May 15th, 2013|Categories: Pastor Blog|Tags: , |

Don’t you find it curious that the apostle Thomas — of all the places in the world God would send him — God sent him to India?...  Thomas, the only disciple to utter the truth concerning who Jesus was upon His resurrection — "my Lord and my God" (the ONLY true God).  Isn’t it curious that [...]

Unpopular Worship

By | 2013-05-06T09:03:13+00:00 May 6th, 2013|Categories: Pastor Blog|

True worship of God is unpopular in many paradigms of our society.  In the book of Hosea God says: Do not rejoice, O Israel; do not be jubilant like the other nations.  And the reason God said that was because rejoicing was to be reserved for those who truly worshiped God.  Rejoicing is a key mark of [...]

Is God Dead?

By | 2013-04-29T14:32:12+00:00 April 29th, 2013|Categories: Pastor Blog|

When God is removed, either by spiritualizing on the one hand or atheism on the other, what is left is what Steve Turner the English journalist writes about in his satirical poem Creed – which reads in part: We believe that there is no absolute truth excepting the truth that there is no absolute truth. We [...]

A Perspective On Evil

By | 2013-04-23T07:50:08+00:00 April 23rd, 2013|Categories: Pastor Blog|Tags: , , |

Evil hit close to home this past week with the bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Once again we are forced to rehearse in our minds how to make sense of the senseless. I’m reminded of what the late Brennan Manning, American author and priest said: “Suffering, failure, loneliness, sorrow, discouragement, and death [...]

Living In a Postmodern Age

By | 2013-04-15T09:44:20+00:00 April 15th, 2013|Categories: Pastor Blog|Tags: , , , |

Living in a postmodern church-age is not easy when it comes to challenging the charge that “God is dead.” Based upon recent Barna research nearly two-fifths of the nation’s adult population (37%) qualifies as post-Christian. It’s interesting to observe the same old struggles of doubt and faith resurfacing within a new generation. We lay Christianity aside [...]
