Statement from William Henley

I am sorry I have chosen not to have a conversation on this topic. I do, in fact, have some strong thoughts on these recent events. I have not, however, been following the news closely and do not feel that I can offer deep insights, and anything I might say at this time would be…

The Faith and Witness of George Floyd

This past week was a very hard time to digest here in America. I have been keeping up with the news concerning the sickening massacre of George Floyd by an equally sick so called “officer of the law”. First off, the video itself of the incident is extremely disturbing to watch, and honestly I have…

PEACE IN THE PAITENCE

To quote a famous 80’s rock song, “All we need is just a little patience.” Especially now in 2020, during this uncertain time of this worldwide health crisis, patience is now just not just a luxury in all of our eyes and lives, but unfortunately now, a viable commodity that everybody needs to survive in…

Time To Reprioritize

Today was the first day of shelter-in-place for my county. I actually had to go to the office today to help a co-worker get setup to work from home. We will come back to that. Here is my thing – I did go last night to visit a friend before shelter-in-place went into effect at…

Knowing Our Bibles

We have now come into a new year (2020) and with that, a new decade to live in.  Like many others out there (believers and non-believers alike) that means one thing…. new year’s resolutions.   An obvious example people will use as a resolution is to lose weight.  For me, not this year since last year…

It’s Okay To Say No

Usually when I blog, it is heavy theology. I am going to bypass a lot of that today, and just be real with you guys. This should be something that everyone of us, at least in western cultures, can relate to – just being too busy. And here is the thing – I have heard…

Let her Lead, Let her Preach, let her Minister!

  Women who preach. Women Pastors. Women in high profile ministry. This can be a very big, taboo topic in many churches today.  Where do we draw the line, is it biblical, should they, or should they not preach to the masses. This subject for the past few days has been a very hot button…
