I usually speed read through this part of Luke, trying to get to the rest of Jesus' story. But, this time, I'm fixated on a particular phrase, "the consolation of Israel". Luke 2:25 " Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was S...

by Kathryn Dyksterhouse In this year's Advent Sermon Series "When Heaven Comes Down," Richard is teaching us to see the different people that were confronted with the news of Jesus' arrival on this earth and how they responded. Last Sunday, we heard about the shepherds who were approached by an angel of the Lord with this news in Luke 2:8-21. I don't know about you, but ...

She has a head full of dark hair, and her smile could melt the heart of The Grinch. Her eyelashes get longer every day, and she makes the cutest sounds when she "talks" to us.

Are You Talking to Me?

by Matthew Waldrop Have you ever been sitting in church during a sermon or Sunday school and just felt like the preacher was speaking directly to you? It almost feels like the sermon was just for you and you kind of get that nervous feeling that people are staring at you. That happened to me not too long ago during a Sunday school class that I was leading. (They must hav...

In the time we've been gone, I've had this nagging feeling that we are out on a mission trip and we will so...

And really, what better time of the year to get us focused on helping others and spreading the Gospel than autumn and the season of giving thanks?...
