    Christmas series introduction - focusing on the role of light in the Christmas story

    When the Son of God is born as man, we’ve already seen His plan.

    A couple weeks ago, NASA landed their 8th Mars lander, InSight, on the surface of Mars and started a photoshoot. They kind of look like selfies on Mars to me.

    Jesus is the only way to be saved. The Christmas story reemphasizes that He alone is the Light of the world.

    “May I help you?” Sometimes those are the most welcomed words I could hear, in the right situation. Sometimes, I really want to hear them… It’s usually in a grocery store the size of the moon, and I’m wandering around looking for something that I’ve never had to find before. Or, I’m in Crimson ...read more

     | 1,502 views

    Message as COVID 19 lockdowns began. In answer to the question: It seems like we put an awful lot of weight on what the Bible says. What makes it different from any other religious writings? It’s so old, and there are so many different ones, how can I even be sure that it’s worth trusting?

    Question to be asked: It seems like we put an awful lot of weight on what the Bible says. What makes it different from any other religious writings? It’s so old, and there are so many different ones, how can I even be sure that it’s worth trusting? What a week this has been! We came back from a ...read more

    Intro – I’ve told the story before, but it’s real significant to me. We were living in OH. I’ll never forget the day that Brian came into my office.

    Continuing Christmas series. Looks at Mary as a proper response to what would ordinarily terrify us.

    Mary didn’t just suddenly appear on the earth. She was born, just like any other baby girl. She wasn’t from a thriving center of commerce and wealth.
