  • The God Who Commands

    Contributed on Oct 8, 2014
    based on 1 rating

    In Sunday school we get the condensed version of the Ten Commandments but they can be read expansively, so that you are challenged to consider how the commandment may apply to all sorts of real life situations.

    The God Who Commands Exodus 20:1-17 October 5, 2014 Rev. David J. Clark The Israelites had been wandering in the desert for a long time. They were learning what it means to really trust God but that trust was hard learned. There was a definite pattern: at the first hint of adversity they more

  • Come Forth

    Contributed on Apr 7, 2014

    A call to come out of the ways of death into the ways of life.

    Come Forth John 11:1-45 April 6, 2014 Rev. David J. Clark The story begins with a request for Jesus to hurry to the aid of his deathly-ill friend, Lazarus. But Jesus delays. He sent messengers back to Lazarus’ home, saying “the sickness is not unto death.” Jesus made a more

  • The Good Shepherd

    Contributed on Apr 4, 2014

    When scripture refers to people as sheep, it may not be a compliment. See how the good shepherd watches over us and cares for us even when our actions are senseless.

    The Good Shepherd March 30, 2014 Psalm 23 Rev. David J. Clark Late in my first year of college, I was working on a Bible research paper about the 23rd Psalm. What is all of this shepherd imagery about? I learned about how the shepherd took care of the sheep and the green pastures meant more

  • Do Whatever He Tells You To Do

    based on 4 ratings

    We cannot always do what Jesus did, but we can do what he tells us to do and experience the transformation of water into wine and despair into hope.

    Do Whatever He Tells You to Do John 2:1-11 January 20, 2013 Rev. David J. Clark Something went wrong at the wedding. It’s a common occurrence. I warn couples that something will go wrong during their wedding day. It may be something insignificant – the goldfish for the table more

  • Provoke One Another

    Contributed on Dec 11, 2012
    based on 4 ratings

    Hebrews turns the notion of provocation upside-down by imploring us to provoke one another to love and good deeds.

    Provoke One Another Hebrews 10:23-25 Rev. David J. Clark While reading the scripture lesson, I stumbled across this phrase that just seemed odd. “Beloved, let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds.” Provoke to love and good deeds? I always associated more

  • Inspiration: Ten Feet At A Time

    Contributed on Dec 11, 2012

    INSPIRATION: TEN FEET AT A TIME Being a provoker doesn’t mean you have to be a perfect person, it just means you have to be a person doing your best in the situations where you find yourself. Several years ago after a devastating California earthquake, the news camera panned a devastated more

  • Treat Each Other Like The Answer To A Prayer

    Contributed on Dec 11, 2012
    based on 8 ratings

    TREAT EACH OTHER LIKE THE ANSWER TO A PRAYER I can still see one of the great provokers in my life. I met her on a work trip to Kentucky. Our youth group was working on a woman’s house, but it wasn’t very much fun. We hated where we were. Porches and front yards littered with old cars, sofas more
