  • A View From The Wheel

    Contributed by Thomas Bowen on Mar 5, 2011
    based on 1 rating

    A view form the potters wheel makes human clay feel dizzy and pushed around. We think we see the truth but the best view is form the potter's perspective and the shaping that happens with His firm and creative hands.

    A view from the wheel Jeremiah 18-1-6 So, this week I had that dizzy feeling that clay might have as it is centered on the potter’s wheel. The potter starts to spin the wheel and shaping the clay. I started to consider how much of my life is remembered as a blur. Christmas’ and more

  • Who To Invite?

    Contributed by Thomas Bowen on Feb 13, 2011
    based on 2 ratings

    We want to control the cost of inviting people to an event. We don't know why people need an invitation to our church, so we don't accept the cost of inviting outsiders into the church.

    Who to invite? It is pretty amazing how many special occasions all of us are involved in. There are birthday parties and graduation parties, block parties , retirement parties, 4th of july, labor day. I have been blessed as a pastor to be involved in lots of special occasions for families. more

  • Just A Little More, God. Series

    Contributed by Thomas Bowen on Feb 13, 2011

    We always think just a little more money or time or friends would make things better. Very few of us long for a little more God to help us to live better.

  • Offensive Nature Series

    Contributed by Thomas Bowen on Feb 13, 2011

    The culture has problems with all kinds of authority. They question when anyone finds authority in the Bible and are offended when anyone else does.

    Offensive Nature Today we are going to examine another of the many problems our culture has with Christianity. There are a lot of intelligent and well educated people that have firm opinions about people/Christians that claim the Bible as the central truth of faith. Perhaps I need to be more

  • Nonsense!

    Contributed by Thomas Bowen on Jan 15, 2011

    Stories of life seem to be nonsince. The Easter message isses like it could be too. How does the story seem to us today?

    Dealing with sin during the season of Lint. Jesus demonstrated how to deal with temptation.

    Last week I pointed out that we were in the Christians season of Lent. The message last week was an encouragement for all of us to deal with the sins in our life. That is sort of the message of the sermon every week. But last week the point was not related to the big sins but to the smaller sins more

    Are we really open to God, cna we hear his voice.

  • New Signs Of An Old Story

    Contributed by Thomas Bowen on Mar 4, 2010

    Our world is filled with all kinds of signs...the Bible tells of other signs.

    New Signs of an old Story I guess I will share with you that I can sometimes be directionally challenged. I don’t really get worried about being lost…I am not sure that most to the times I take an original route to some place that I would ever say I was really lost. I have told more

    What should Christians be afraid of.

    What are you afraid of? Matthew 8:23-27 Being a man I hate to admit that I might be afraid of any thing. So my first reaction to talking about fear is to tap into my childhood. My physical childhood, I still am mentally child like. I was probably afraid of the dark, and lots of other more
