    Oops! That was wrong!

        The September 2014 issue of Sports Illustrated featured some of the articles from the last 60 years of the magazine. The editors boldly revealed some of their horribly incorrect predictions. For example, in a 1965 magazine article, they predicted that Arnold Palmer was finished. Oops! Over the next six years, Palmer won 16 times.

  • Our Brother Jesus

        Saint Augustine refers, in one of his sermons, to Jesus as “our brother” and reminds us that Jesus became our brother out of merciful goodness. If
        Jesus is the son of God and we call God our father then it follows logically that Jesus is our brother. God is both our spiritual and metaphysical father because he is the source of our existence. God’s choosing to come to earth and put on human flesh in the person of Jesus makes him our brother in the metaphysical sense that we share the same physical constitution, and the

  • A Pastor’s Notes

        Joshua was clear. God was clear. You have to choose. The decision is yours and yours alone.
        God has already chosen. He has already committed Himself to you as His beloved child. His arms are open now to receive you home, to welcome you in. But He will not force you to return to the place you long to be. Instead the Lord waits for you to choose love over apathy, grace over doubt, surrender over control. So choose. Choose now. Choose whom and what you will serve.

  • A Pastor’s Notes

        The fullness of God can’t be captured by just one image, just one picture. It takes all of the images and pictures we can imagine to help us begin to understand the fullness, the majesty, the love of God. We may see the Lord as the first flower of spring or a rushing stream or comforting arms in the middle of the night.
        When we read the Bible, we see the Lord as a rock that never changes; a fire that burns brightly in the night and guides our way; the wind that blows where it wills; a still, quiet voice in the midst of the storm.

    Running from God

        A woman was driving home one evening when she noticed that a huge truck was right behind her. She thought the truck was too close, so she stepped on the gas and tried to put some distance between her car and the truck.
        However, the faster she went, the faster the truck went as well. Soon her car and the truck were racing down the highway with the truck right on her back bumper. The woman became extremely frightened and pulled over the expressway, but the truck followed her.
