Don’t play church– Live for Jesus!


=“One of the greatest needs in the church today is to come back to the Scriptures as the basis of authority, and to study them prayerfully with dependence on the Holy Spirit for interpretation. It is when we fill our hearts with His Word that we overflow into the lives of others,” (Billy Graham, November 8, 1959).

Some thoughts on the total solar eclipse

A different kind of trip to Danville, Ohio


I stood with Daniel’s cousins as we sang song after song. It was one of those priceless moments — too precious for words, yet not something any of us would have chosen. Daniel’s aunt by marriage, who was 66 years old had passed on into heaven. Yes, we grieved together, yet there was a pronounced joy in my heart as we sang yet another song of heaven. It was one which we as a family sung years ago after my baby sisters had passed, “Would we truly long for heaven, if this life were perfect here…?”

Jesus is risen and death does not have the final word


Most of us were captivated by the shocking news of the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore. Due to the quick action of authorities the loss of life was minimized as traffic was halted just before the ship hit the support structure bringing it down instantly. I am still feeling grief for the highway maintenance workers that were unaware of the eminent danger and they unfortunately perished. Without warning they were swept into the inescapable waters of the Patapsco River. This is yet another reminder of the brevity of life.

Remember the first Palm Sunday


This coming Sunday (March 24) is a day commonly known to Christians as Palm Sunday. It is a day set aside in remembrance of Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem as the people greeted him waving branches of palm trees. They saw Jesus and because they had seen and heard of His teachings, healings, and miracles they knew in their hearts that He was indeed the one spoken of by the prophet Zechariah who had proclaimed, “Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” (Zech. 9:9)
