  • Your Easter Story

    Contributed by Scott Nichols on Jul 18, 2014
     | 3,004 views

    The original ending of Mark's Gospel a first glance seems to inspire little hope; but a closer look reveals how the Risen Lord meets us in the ordinary circumstances of life and invites us to finish the story of His resurrection.

    The little boy was not exactly happy about going to church on Easter Sunday morning. His new shoes were to tight, his tie pinched his neck and the weather outside was just too beautiful to be cooped up inside...so as he sulked in the pew his parents heard him mutter to no one in particular. "I ...read more

    What do Psalm 118, the patriarch Abraham and palm branches have to do with God's plan to provide His Passover Lamb - Jesus? This message looks at how God brings it all together on Palm Sunday.

    Hear the word of God from Psalm 118. "Open for me the gates of righteousness. I will enter and give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteousness may enter. I will give you thanks for you answered me. You have become my salvation. The stone the builders has ...read more

  • The Nativity Set:: The Shepherds Series

    Contributed by Scott Nichols on Dec 13, 2011
    based on 2 ratings

    The story of the Shepherds reminds us that to find the heart of Christmas we must look beneath the wrapping paper.

    The last few embers of the fire are dying out. The air hangs heavy with a silence broken only by the occasional bleat of a lamb. Huddled together for warmth, the shepherds are alone with their thoughts. Each one scanning the horizon. Looking. Perhaps casting a longing eye to the distant lights of ...read more

    Is has always been hard to get to Bethlehem for Christmas.

    A Charlie Brown Christmas opens with Charlie Brown talking to his best friend Linus. "I think there must be something wrong with me, Linus. Christmas is coming, but I'm not happy. I don't feel the way I'm supposed to feel. I just don't understand Christmas. I guess I like getting presents, sending ...read more

  • Oil In Your Lamp?

    In Matthew 25:1-13, Jesus tells the Parable of the Ten Virgins, this message from the text asks the crucial question are we ready for Christ's return?

    The hymn we have just sung asks a pointed question. A question that I fear too often we dismiss in our daily lives. With all the concerns of living in the present moment - with all of the accompanying joys or frustrations - we fail to give much thought to the final moment. That moment when time, as ...read more

  • Return To Gilgal

    Contributed by Scott Nichols on Feb 27, 2011

    In Joshua, the children of Israel set up 12 stones at Gilgal to remind them of what God had done. How do we remember the blessings of God?

    It is a time of transition. Of uncertainty. Moses is dead. Joshua has stepped into the leadership void; just as a new generation of Israelites are ready to cross over the Jordan to take possession of the land promised to Abraham. God understands the feelings of his people. The anticipation, the ...read more

  • "What Did You Expect?"

    Contributed by Scott Nichols on Feb 19, 2011
     | 1,756 views

    The story of Naaman in 2 Kings 5 is a powerful reminder that God is not limited by our expectations.

    Naaman was past upset; past mad; past even furious - he was working on a complete emotional meltdown. Like a cartoon character - the steam seems to literally be pouring out of his ears. He stomps - he stammers - he shouts: "I thought that he would surely come out to me and stand and call on the ...read more

  • The Rumor Of Hope

    Contributed by Scott Nichols on Apr 17, 2009
    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,751 views

    The original and abrupt ending of the Gospel of Mark allows us to finish the story of Christ’s resurrection in our own lives. What will it mean to us to meet Jesus in our own "Galilees?"

    The little boy was not exactly happy about going to church on Easter Sunday morning. His new shoes were to tight, his tie pinched his neck and the weather outside was just too beautiful to be cooped up inside...so as he sulked in the pew his parents heard him mutter to no one in particular.
