What have children taught you?   

By: Haley Wilson Children are constant reminders of how we should be caring and loving to everyone. Small children do not judge each other on physical features or where they are from. They are friends to everyone. Children truly exemplify “for whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them.” Children…

God is For Us

“If God is for us Who can be against us?” Romans 8:31 There are a lot of things in life that are thrown our way. It is very easy to feel overwhelmed and overcome with problems of the world. A lot of times, we forget with whom we should be talking too and asking for…

  Are You Partnering With Satan?

Isn’t it curious when and how God’s word touches us?  I came across a verse the other day that really caught my attention and it’s a verse that is so common. Do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility towards God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes…

Thoughts On Palm Sunday

  By: Carren Marvin You may or may not celebrate the Lenten season, Palm Sunday, or Easter. I have mixed feelings about American holiday traditions, but the week before Easter seems a welcome opportunity to reflect on a significant day in Christian history.   On the day that has become known to us as Palm…

What Is My Purpose?

Retirement is that day in the far future that everyone looks forward to. No alarm clocks, no rush hour traffic, no meetings. But I loved my work in education. I loved learning myself and felt it was meaningful and gave me a sense of purpose. When the day for me to retire came in December,…

Living by Faith

By: Craig Collier Many people have a favorite book of the Bible—one that they turn to regularly to help them cope with troubles, to remind them of important truths, or to rejuvenate their faith.  For me, that book is Habakkuk.  That is probably not near the top of the list for most people, but I have come…

I Can Be Your Friend

By: Amy Cavataio God truly blessed us to have been part of such a loving congregation during Bill’s battle with cancer. The outpouring of physical, emotional and spiritual support means more than you’ll ever know. We are told in Prov. 17:17, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” I praise God…

Practice Makes Permanent

 by Carren Marvin As a high school English teacher, I try to inspire teenagers to adopt the lifetime habit of reading. To help them, I use the analogy of an athlete in training. “You can’t get better at your three-point shot or have the stamina to run a marathon without a lot of practice,” I…

Because I’m Happy…

By: Paulette Bush “Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice”,Philippians 4:4. Rejoice:  to be joyful, to be happy. “He who trusts in the Lord, happy is he”, Proverbs 20:16. Happy, like: “sing and be happy”; breathe happy (Febreeze); “sleep happy” (Mattress-firm)? No. Rejoice and be happy in the Lord! “Happy are the people…
