Good Friday – Sermon Preached on 4/3/2015

John 18:1-6 When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was a garden, and he and his disciples went into it. 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with...

“Good” Friday

Somewhere in the midst of the dinner, prayer and the garden, Thursday turned into Friday. Whether you count days like the Jews, as if the day began at sunset, or you account for time like we do today, marking the beginning of Friday at midnight, either way the change...

Maundy Thursday

It’s Thursday . . . the first day of a happy celebration on the Jewish calendar. Jesus and his disciples will eat the Passover on the opening day of the festival. The day probably consisted of preparations. Someone had to get the Lamb ready, others prepared the room. At...

The Day of Silence

WEDNESDAY OF HOLY WEEK This is the day that the theologians call the day of silence, but somehow with Jesus, I picture it more as the unrecorded day. We can only speculate what really went on during this ominous Wednesday. We know that just before bed last night Jesus...

Tuesday of Holy Week

I read this scripture early this morning, but circumstances have prohibited me writing any thing until tonight. On the way have from Praise Team practice, I reflected on my day compared to Jesus’ Holy Week Tuesday. My day was pretty routine. I had to get some groceries, and a...

Whose God is it? – Ponderings on March 14, 2015

Today I was reading 2 Kings 19 and as I stumbled on verse 4 (2 Kings 19:4), I noticed that Hezekiah’s men called God “the Lord YOUR God” (my emphasis) when they were talking to Isaiah. It sounded like they were quoting Hezekiah. It made me pretty sad. Seriously...

It Hurts – March 12, 2015

I’m obviously a people pleaser. I want folks to think well of me, and it hurts when I’m misunderstood. The worst part is, most of time I don’t really care. But there are a few people (most of them related) that I value their opinion. So when I’m misunderstood...

Life Changes – March 11, 2015

Today my mother-in-law moved in with me. I feel so bad for her. She has dementia or alzheimers or something. Whatever it is, she really wants to live at her house on her own, and she just can’t anymore, and that makes her mad and sad. She had been...
