Let’s Take a Walk

Let’s Take a Walk

What if we take a walk? A final walk. A walk in his shadow . . . a walk in his footsteps. What do we see? We follow his walk from Jericho to Jerusalem . . . where once again he warned them what religious piety and being disconnected from ...
Holy Week Devotion

Holy Week Devotion

The week had been full of finalities. As Thursday evening drew to a close Jesus went to the garden . . . and there he sat, a young man in a sweat-soaked garment – kneeling, imploring, agonizing over what was yet to come. He figures out that ...
The True Nature of the Heart

The True Nature of the Heart

French novelist Houssaye wrote, “Tell me whom you love and I’ll tell you who you are.” The true nature of the heart is seen in its response to that which is not attractive. Max Lucado tells a story about a gentleman named John Blanchard. John ...
Credentials are not a NEW thing!

Credentials are not a NEW thing!

There’s a joke between myself and my clergy friends that I don’t have the “right” degree. It isn’t meant to be self-deprecating . . . it truly is a joke because we all know I have more “post-graduate” hours than possibly necessary. It is mainly ...
It’s Cursed!

It’s Cursed!

On Monday, Jesus and the disciples were walking back into Jerusalem after spending the night in Bethany. No doubt they were hungry as they walked and they passed a fig tree. Jesus noticed that even though it had leaves, it had no fruit. He was ...
The Road Less Traveled

The Road Less Traveled

There are pathways in our lives that we really NEED to go, we just don’t want to. It seems as we look ahead into the unknown that the cost of traveling that path is far too great. Yet, here we stand. We stand at the beginning of the week, ...
Going Viral Devotion

Going Viral Devotion

When we fear something exists in ourselves we are more likely to judge it in other people. Confession . . . "ego" is not a desirable thing in my opinion. When some of my colleagues and I sit around a table and the conversations turn to "let me ...
Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love

Sunday Rev. Amy Coles gave a powerful illustration about the love, vastness, and amazing nature of God! As people were pronouncing Stephen Hawking's "eternal destiny." For today's devotion, I'd love it if you would take a few moments to watch ...
Easier Looking OUT than WITHIN

Easier Looking OUT than WITHIN

It is always easier to look at instead of within. Have you ever watched a bully in action? They tend to find the weak spot in someone and then hit it relentlessly. Grace Rembinski is a singer/songwriter who tells her story about ...
How many things have you lost?

How many things have you lost?

It is sometimes an hourly occurrence that I lose things. I don’t mean to, it just happens. More often than not my mind is on ten different things and I do not stop to THINK about something before I do it. Then, when it is time to remember I ...
Never In It Alone

Never In It Alone

Every Sunday after the message is over, I do a self-critique and try to evaluate how it went. Was I true to the scripture, did I communicate well and engage you? Or was it disjointed and lackluster? Last Sunday I was “out of sorts” when I ...
Windows

Windows

Think of the analogy of a window. When the window is clean you can peer through it and see things with such clarity. The brilliance of colors, the vast detail of objects . . . it’s all so obvious when the window is as it should be – intact, ...
