    Forrest Gump's mother said: "life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get." Sometimes you don't even get what the box says is in it.

    Great Gifts in Unexpected Boxes A Christmas Meditation I like to buy my wife extravagant gifts for Christmas…like socks. You might laugh, but I’m not talking just any socks.

    The message addresses the oldest question in the world, "Did God really say that?"

    If I were to ask one of our teenagers this morning what the most important question of their life is, in all probability I would get something like, “What will I become?” “Where will I go to college?” If I were to ask the same question to someone who was already out of college, they would likely ...read more

    Today we dedicate a child to God. What does that mean for his parents and the community of faith in which he will grow?

    This morning, for the second time in three weeks, we welcome into the community of faith a new child, Lars Hickey. Two weeks ago it was through infant baptism, today through dedication. It’s not my intent this morning to debate the issues of infant baptism vs believer baptism. Rather, let me ...read more

    I can stand anywhere in my back yard and see my church. It sits rather majestically at the apex of our little town. Its stained glass windows chronicle its founders. Inside, a huge chandelier hovers over our pew. I don’t know who appointed us to sit in that particular pew, but it must have been ...read more

    How does one find a faith that is relevant for the 21st century?

    Several months ago I caught John Larroquette, the actor, on the “Tonight Show.” Somehow the conversation turned to religion. I don’t remember much about the conversation, but I do remember Mr. Larroquette making a comment about television evangelists that has stuck with me. He said, “Seeing ...read more
