  • Change of heart

    You may or may not have picked up on a theme for the pastor’s column this month. Purity. What a foreign concept in our society! Nobody on TV is talking about purity. Nobody in Washington is talking about purity. Surprisingly, not many in our churches are talking about purity. The outside world doesn’t care about it, and the church is too nervous to discuss it. But here’s the reality: whether outside the church or in, we aren’t pure these days. The sin of self has led us to pursue everything but purity in our lives.

  • Heart problem

    We have a problem.  I have a problem. You have a problem.  What is it? It’s our heart. Now, I am not talking about the muscle in your body that pumps blood and is necessary for physical life. I’m talking about the inward part of our soul that is necessary for true life, spiritual life.

  • Who are the ‘church people’?

    Recently, someone passed on a bit of gossip to me.
    This person said, according to reliable sources, a certain person at a certain local church did something that, while doesn’t technically violate the letter of any of the Ten Commandments, is unseemly for, as this person put it, “church people.”

    That same week my pastor said someone came to him and informed him that a certain person who was attending the pastor’s class with the intent of joining the church was, indeed, not a very nice person, maybe even a despicable one.

  • When Jesus shows up

    When it comes to serving at my church, I have two jobs.

    As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a communion server. I’m also emcee for the monthly senior ministry events, dinners and such. With a microphone in hand I quiet them down, tell a few senior-related jokes, dismiss the people at the tables to go get their food and introduce featured guests.
    Sometimes I refill cups of iced tea or clear plates away.
    Basically, I just show up and try not to mess things up so badly that God can’t fix it.

  • Embrace your not-perfectness

    One day at the library, a book fell off a shelf and hit a boy named Milo Crinkley on the head.

    The title, “Be A Perfect Person In Just Three Days,” was just what he needed.
    Wanting more than anything to be perfect, Milo checked the book out and set to do everything the author, Dr. K. Pinkerson Silverfish prescribed.
    So begins the 1982 children’s book “Be A Perfect Person In Just Three Days” by Stephen Manes.
