One Bread

Scripture:1 Corinthians 10:17Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. I am finding this verse especially meaningful this week. I am baking a lot of bread, par for the course a few days before Thanksgiving, but I won't be partaking of it around a table filled with friends and family. I am baking bread for my mom, my in-...

A Time to Be Silent

Scripture: Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7bThere is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under the heavens:A time to be silent and a time to speak. I've heard it said that a good friend is someone you can spend hours with and barely say a word, and yet you still feel like you really connected. This is a profound insight and is equally true in a spiritual sense. I be...

In God’s Image

Scripture: Genesis 1:27 CEBGod created humanity in God's own image, in the divine image God created them, male and female God created them. Long after the final lingering ballots are counted, the court cases and recounts are settled, sadly this close presidential election has shown us, there will still be great division. How long will the divide continue? How do we as fol...

Sacrifice

Scripture: John 15:12-13 (CEB)This is my commandment: love each other just as I have loved you.No one has greater love than to give up one's life for one's friends. This past Wednesday our nation celebrated Veterans Day. To most of us, this is a day that comes and goes with little fanfare. With social media, we see lots of people post photos of their family members and fr...

Being Grateful

My parents paid my way through a private college and three years of seminary. My father was stunned at the meagerness of my first annual salary of $4000. Three months into my first year as a pastor my parents visited me. My dad handed me an envelope and said, "You'll need this." The envelope contained money. I handed it back to him. He said, "You're going to need it." I re...

Scripture:Philippians 4:4-9 (CEB)Be glad in the Lord always! Again I say, be glad! Let your gentleness show in your treatment of all people. The Lord is near. Don't be anxious about anything; rather, bring up all of your requests to God in your prayers and petitions, along with giving thanks. Then the peace of God that exceeds all understanding will keep your hearts and mi...

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

Scripture:Psalm 40:1"I waited patiently for the Lord, He turned to me and heard my cry." Do you ever struggle with patience? Well? Do you? I need answers people! I don't have all day to wait around. . . oops. I guess I struggle with this a bit myself. We certainly live in an instant gratification society.If we want a product, we can get it delivered tomorrow. If we want ...

Saints who Have Gone Before

Scripture: Revelation 14:12-13This calls for the endurance of the saints, who keep God's commandments and keep faith with Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven say, "Write this: Favored are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.""Yes," says the Spirit, "so they can rest from their labors, because their deeds follow them." I have many favorite hymns. I grew up going to...

Living Generously

Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."Then he told them this story: "The farm of a certain rich man produced a terrific crop. He talked to himself: 'What can I do? My barn isn't big enough for this harvest.' Then he said, '...

The Influence of the Gospel

I am writing this in hopes that some small part of it is helpful to you in your christian walk. I read daily devotions, too. Sometimes they are about stuff I already know. They help me because they remind me of important information that I have allowed to slip away. Then sometimes, to my delight, I learn a new insight. A few days ago, in my devotion time, I was reading in...
