Running For JesusRunning For Jesus

Why is faith so difficult? Is it because it does not always lead to a comfortable life? In fact it often leads to challenges that cause pain and suffering.

Jesus teaches us how to run the race of life and we have witnesses who love, care, and often join us in our journey of faith. Join us in our journey of faith. Join us Sunday and prayerfully let us examine how we might celebrate our life race!

Beach FunBeach Fun

  What a beautiful day!  A cool wind blowing in from the north flattened the waves and made their meeting with the shore a subdued union.  Despite the cool breeze (I in my jacket, naturally), I watched people in shorts and bathing suits enjoying the sun and the sand, throwing Frisbees, jumping in the wet sand, and fishing at the ocean’s edge.  I love to watch families or individuals at play it lets me witness something simultaneously private and public.  Surely our laughter is part of the godliness that resides in us, a gift Adam and Eve took with them even as they left the Garden. I believe we share God’s delight in His world when we laugh with one another over something as wholesome as the water and the shore.  I can’t help but smile just watching His children celebrating.  I think you, Dear Father, for reminding me that sun, wind, sand and ocean are reason enough to laugh, even when small ills trouble me.  Thank you for the wonderful gift of laughter to celebrate!

A Balm That HealsA Balm That Heals

The prophet Jeremiah is suffering from the unfaithfulness of God’s people. His heart is breaking as he visions war and disruption. He asks “Is there no balm in Gilead?” He is referring to a famous resin (ointment) harvested from the trunks of balsam pine trees that grow in the region of Gilead. Come and worship with us this Sunday and share the gospel that the Lord indeed provides grace, love, and spread Holy Spirit Balm.
