Greetings from the Kaysers

by Ian Kayser "Friendship is the greatest of worldly goods. Certainly to me it is the chief happiness of life."-CS Lewis I can't believe that it has been just about a year since we began our ministry in Clinton. In some ways it feels more like 2 weeks and then in other ways it feels like it has been 2 years. Through it all, we do miss our friends at Westminster and I a...

Two Things...

by Watson M. Pillow Two things that have been on my mind this week: How do I view my prayer life? This quote comes from Oswald Chambers. He says to think of the last thing you prayed about. Were you devoted to your desire or to God? Was your determination to get some gift of His Spirit for yourself or to get God?Matthew 6-8 says God knows the things you need before you...

Happiness

by Mischa McCray When you think of what you want for your life, what comes to mind? Or, if you think of what you want for your children, what things do you desire? I think that one of the most common things that people would say is that they want to be happy, or that they long for those that they love to be happy. Think about how often you hear someone say, "I just want t...

What Defines You?

by Shelby Gorman He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. (1 Peter 2:24) In my last post I shared how I like to write down my prayers and even shared a few with you. With this one I thought I would let you in on why: I am a sinner. If you know the Bible then you know that...

The Language of Lament

by Lee Coleman On October 27, 2014, Taylor Swift released her fifth studio album entitled 1989. It was notable for all the usual reasons: it debuted at #1 on the Billboard chart, sold 1.2 million copies in the first week, and was a huge hit with fans and critics. But it was also significant in that it was Swift's first purely pop album as she sought to distance herself fr...

Circumstances in Light of God’s Character

by Gray Blocker Over the last few years, I have realized that my trust in the Lord can stem from my circumstances and not from His character. When life is easy or I feel in control, I believe He is a good God. But do I have this same viewpoint when things don't go according to my plan or when I don't feel His presence? In order to truly trust the Lord, we must remind ours...

The Architect

by Gary Dyksterhouse Not too long ago I was sent a link by Stephen Pillow to take a personality test. He and his wife Kim had taken it recently, and they wanted to send it out to some of their friends. I rarely participate in these sorts of actions, but I had 5 free minutes of time, and decided to indulge. The last time I can remember taking one of these tests it was the ...

A Sure and Certain Hope

by Gene Stansel Putting all clichs aside, without a doubt we live in troubling times. The entire world is filled with troubles, and we have troubles on our plate as well. How do we face them? Do we resist? Are we critical? Do we grumble? Or do we face trouble with a stoic false joy? What we really need is a certain hope that there is something better for us in the future....
