Church

*/ Wow, what an interesting few weeks it has been! On Good Friday Morning, just after my morning shower, everything started spinning! I thought oh no, another bout of vertigo, as I had probably experienced minor vertigo in the past. But this was the worst yet. I lay down in bed and the spinning...
The other day a faithful member of the church had a question about Easter, “How did the Easter bunny become a part of the celebration of Christ’s resurrection, there does not seem to be any connection? This of course raised my curiosity about a question to which I had no idea how to answer. My only...
As a kid, I took delight in making May Day baskets out of recycled strawberry containers or cut up egg cartons. In these precious gifts I placed candy, stickers and beautiful flowers otherwise known as dandelions. It was a thrill to place these May Day baskets on the porch of unsuspecting neighbors...

He became human to rid our lives of the eternal consequences of sin, whereby we could experience His life and be with Him forever. If not for this spectacular event, no one could be saved. I...
The month of February stands our as the warmest of the winter months. Oh, not in the actual temperature of the weather, but in the warmth of human affection.  February, it has been reported is the most popular month for couples to become engaged. With Valentine's day just around the corner many...
Thank you.  That was good.  I really enjoyed that.  Aren’t those kind of statements fun to hear? Encouragement is the sunshine to one’s soul.  It is the vitamins and minerals for your body.  It puts the joy in your step and the desire to keeping going. Many, many years ago when I was in elementary...
