  • A Pastor’s Notes

        Last Sunday, Jan. 6 was Epiphany, the day we celebrate the coming of light into darkness and the arrival of the wisemen after their long journey. That’s when I had my epiphany (a sudden insight). It came with one sentence about those wisemen. “They returned a different way.”

    More than adequate

        “Ye shall receive power after that the Holy Spirit comes upon you...” (Acts 1:8) The late Stephen Olford told the story of a man in South Africa who bought a new Rolls Royce. When a neighbor asked about the horsepower of the engine, he could not answer him. The owner’s manual had no information about it. So, he sent a telegram to the dealer in London: NEW ROLLS. HOW MANY HORSEPOWER? He didn’t have to wait long before receiving a response: ADEQUATE, SIR, ADEQUATE.

  • God is not an object

        We often talk about God as if He is an object to be contemplated or prayed to and that he resides in a faraway place we call Heaven. But, God is a subject and not an object.

        There is a story about a man who woke up on New Year’s Day and prayed to God saying that so far he had kept all his new year’s resolutions: “God.” he said, “So far I have stayed on my diet and I have kept my promise to exercise twice a week. I haven’t yelled at anyone, and I have loved my wife and my kids unconditionally. So far today, I’ve been perfect, but now I have to get out of bed and I’m going to need your help.”

  • Getting Our Lives in Order

        If you are unhappy with your life, or with certain aspects of it —and everyone has some area of their life that needs work — perhaps it is because you have tried to manage it by yourself.
        It might relieve you to know that God has a better plan for your life than you do, and it takes a lot of the pressure off ourselves when we decide to live by God’s plan.

        Christmas has come and gone. There was a flurry of wrapping paper, squeals of delight, and a rush of visits and hugs. All too often we are left wondering what happened to it all?
        What happened to the magic and the wonder of the carols? What happened to the glory of a new born king? What happened that we couldn’t make the love of that silent night stay among us?

        I read somewhere the story of a boy whose father and mother abandoned him. He was struggling with his schoolwork and was so shy and backward, and that caused him to have very few friends. The boy took an IQ test at school and it was discovered that he had great intelligence.
