They Are New Every Morning…Part II

Continuing the thought from Lamentations, we’ll look again at Jeremiah the prophet as he spoke about God’s mercies, “…they are new every morning.” When times are difficult and we can’t seem to see any hope, what is our response? Do we fall into despair or do we reach for higher, brighter days? We have a …

Reading Your Own Future…Oct. 26th

What if you could tell the future? To know what’s coming up, would that be a good thing or would you be uncomfortable knowing there might be something not so pleasant just ahead of you? We take each day in stride because we trust in God’s providential power. But what if God Himself were to …

The Sign of the Covenant…Sept. 28th

A verbal commitment is binding, and yet an agreement that is documented (written) is stronger still. But what about an agreement between two individuals that has physical implications? A physical sign of what we have agreed upon. A handshake is physical, but is there more to it when it comes to our agreement, our covenant, …

A recent email from one of our ministers at Waterview church of Christ caught my eye and I felt it appropriate to share it with you. Consider your ‘faith in Christ,’ what exactly does that mean? Is your faith something you can hold on to? By definition, the word faith means; “Belief that does not …

Who’s In Control?…April 27th

What does it mean to be ‘in control?’ Do you have to have authority and power to maintain control over someone or something? Many will assume you have to be stronger, more talented, or meaner, or smarter to be in control. And though those traits might prove beneficial, is that all it takes? Perhaps it’s …

The Beautiful Bride of Christ…Feb. 9th

This past weekend we enjoyed a time with Wayne & Tami Roberts as they presented their Marriage Seminar, “His Shoes/Her Shoes”. Sunday mornings lesson was focused, appropriately, on Christ’s bride. As a young boy it was difficult for me to see Christ with a bride.  And to be honest, Revelation didn’t offer much clarification. But …

Auld Lang Syne

“Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind.  Should old acquaintance be forgot, and days of auld lang syne.  For auld lang syne, my dear…for auld lang syne.  We’ll drink a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne.” A haunting melody that is often heard during the early hours of the new …
