    Have you ever eaten all your popcorn before the movie started? I have! It’s called no self-discipline. There is something to be said about butter and salt on a fluffy kernel of no taste; Yummy.

    Happy “Encounter” Weekend, Everyone! A portion of one verse leading up to the Ten Commandments text is one of my favorite phrases in Exodus: “Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God” (Exodus 19:17a).

    Happy “Speak-Up” Weekend, Everyone! Amos, an Old Testament book that we don’t spend much time in is where we will be studying this Sunday. Amos is called one of the “lesser” books of the Bible, not because it’s less important, but because it’s smaller. Amos, like Hosea, Joel, Obadiah, Micah, ...read more

    Ezekiel was a dynamic and dramatic guy. Even though he was a great prophet/teacher/preacher, his words landed on deaf ears. I’ve been teaching Sunday school for over 30 years and there are times when I wonder if I’m even getting through to anyone.
