    “Get Ready”
    Series: Joshua
    Throughout the first 8 chapters of Joshua there are several times that God directs the people to "Get Ready" for what He is wanting to do.  God is calling us to "Get Ready" for His Spirit to work in our lives and use us to make a difference in our world this year!

    Extraordinary in the Ordinary
    All that God wants to accomplish in our lives hangs, not on our abilities and performance, but rather on our willingness to say, "Yes" to His plan which means we choose daily to live in intimate relationship with Him, run from everything that compromises that intimacy and remain in Him.

    “Gibeonites and Grace”
    Series: Sermon
    The enemy will marshal his forces against you, make up a ruse to distract you or try to intimidate you - but by listening to the Lord and not to the enemy what you will find is wisdom and guidance - and on top of it all is the reminder that grace is never far from God's mind!

The Kingdom of Heaven

There are a number of times in Matthew’s gospel account that he talks about the kingdom of heaven.  There are many things that he quoted Jesus as saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like . . .” and then He went on to relate the kingdom of heaven to different things that people could understand.  “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field;” “the kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed;” “the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field;” “the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake;” “the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants.”  Over and over Jesus spoke to the crowds, but more specifically to his disciples to help them to understand more about the kingdom of heaven.  So as we are talking about having a conversation with God during this Lenten season, and as we talked about the kingdom of heaven this past Sunday, just what does all of this have to do with us here today in 2018?  Look with me briefly as some of the things that He said and let’s talk about this a bit.

Lent 2018

It is not a tradition that we commemorate much in our denomination.  Growing up we never celebrated it or talked about it at church and when I heard the word the only thing that I knew about “Lent” was that I had some friends at school who would “give something up for Lent.”  Honestly, I had no idea what in the world it was all about.  I can barely remember that someone was “giving up chocolate for Lent” or someone else was “giving up sodas for Lent.”  I didn’t understand it, why were they giving something up?  It wasn’t until I became a pastor and began to read materials that were provided for me that I discovered this tradition of Lent and it really wasn’t until over 10 years later that I began to occasionally incorporate it into my preaching calendar.  I still do not pursue Lent every year, (perhaps I should do so more regularly), but there are times when I see a great value in doing it.  This year as you can deduce, I am celebrating Lent and we will be on a journey, beginning tonight, Ash Wednesday, through Lent.  Let me explain . . .

The Heavens Declare

Perhaps you were up early this morning, on purpose or as a regular course of habit, and saw the super blue blood moon.  We are up each morning at about 4:45 and at about 5:45 we went outside down at the bottom of our driveway to look at the moon.  A blue moon is described as the second full moon in the course of a calendar month.  A super moon is described as a full moon when the moon is the closest to the earth that it will get in its orbit.  And a blood moon or red moon is when there is a lunar eclipse, when the earth is directly in between the moon and the sun and the moon appears to be red.  For all 3 of these to occur at the same time is incredibly rare.  The last lunar eclipse occurred in 2015, but the last super blue moon blood moon able to be observed in the US occurred in 1866.  Wow, and we got to see this one!  (If you didn’t get up early and you missed it, you can go on thousands of sites on the internet and see a time lapse, photos and videos of it – not exactly the same, but at least you’ll get to see it.)
