Church At Home

In many ways, we find ourselves in unchartered territory. Few of us could have ever imagined that so much would happen in such a short time in relation to the Coronavirus, but it has, and more change and disruption will no doubt continue in the coming weeks and months. One of the big questions that […]

What You Gain in Salvation

Three and a half years ago my wife and I bought our first house. This was a big step for us, but after watching countless episodes of HGTV, we thought we were well prepared. However, there were a few surprises, one of them being all the “extras” that we didn’t plan on acquiring. Let me […]

Knowing the Christ of Christmas

Hard to believe, but in just a few short days, we will be celebrating Christmas! Now that I am a little older (those of you over 50, please don’t take offense to that statement), I am amazed at how quickly Christmas comes and goes. Sometimes in the midst of all the chaos, I struggle to […]

Forward Ever, Backward Never

When I was in Africa last month, I learned a lot about the history of Ghana. One of the most fascinating aspects was learning about Ghana’s first President Kwame Nkrumah. His presidency ended suddenly in 1966 when he was overthrown by a military coup when he was out of the country. It has even been […]
