The Church

I’m beginning to understand once again why so many people want nothing to do with the church.  It’s supposed to be a family, yet it doesn’t know how to function like a family.   Jesus called us “friends.”  I would think that would mean that we should also be friends...

I’ve found a new outlet for my rants!

I want to invite everyone to visit my new Squidoo Lenses. Click here – you’ll find links to several “e-book” type articles I’ve started!  I’ll try to come back and list them here as I get them built!  Stop in and tell me what you think!...

You See ME

Too short, too tall, just baby fat Where did she find that crazy hat, I’m sure he’ll grow into those ears. These things our friends and family say They mold us, form us day by day We start to believe all that we hear. But from somewhere a voice...

Things I’ve Learned about My Father

Yesterday I preached for Steve when he was out of town.  Go to http://blog.sycamoretreechurch.com to read the jist of it.  (the one dated 3/22)  In the midst I tried to explain what it means to be a “child of God.”  We don’t act like our Father is the Creator...

A word of encouragement to Moms!

From a student teacher to her mother .  . . ————————————————————————– I wanted to call you earlier, but after work, dinner, homework, shower . . . will, it just didn’t happen.  So, I decided that I could e-mail you just as well, and that this might be a nice...

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I was looking for graphics the other day for March.  I usually stay away from the whole Leprechaun and pot of gold stuff and stay in the spring/shamrock zone.   However, when I did a search for shamrock, it was mostly 4 leaf clovers.   Seems harmless, huh?   However, it appears...

America’s Future

I’m still thinking about what Jeremiah has to say about Israel and how relevant it is to America today.  Again, I encourage you to read Isaiah and Jeremiah inserting America for Israel and Washington for Jerusalem.  Today I ready Jeremiah 3 and 4.  If you don’t have time or...

Israel/America

I’ve made it into Jeremiah.  The prophet of gloom he is often called.  And it’s no wonder.  I read chapters 1 & 2 today.  Chapter 2 is pretty clear regarding God’s opinion of Israel during the reign of Josiah.  But read it again.  Similar to Isaiah, substitute America for...
