Pastor's column: Exactly what is needed in our time
Two church ladies were having a fight. Their fight was dividing their church. Their fight was so big their founding pastor decided to write the church a letter, inspired to call the church to be what Christ called us to be. His letter was so full of wisdom the early church recognized...

Pastor Viewpoint: Seeking spiritual solitude
Recently, I've been thinking more about the importance of solitude and down-time. I'm an introvert so I already have a great appreciation for having some free minutes carved into the day in order to recharge.

Pastor viewpoint: A promise that there is always more
Easter is a big deal! As it should be! We Christians think so highly of our founder we visit his grave to see what is not there. No other group of people in the world does this. We rejoice because he was there and now his grave is empty. This means the message of God's mercy and forgiveness...

Pastor Viewpoint: Must our opponents be seen as enemies?
Have you noticed the world around us is narrowing in a troubling way? Once upon a time, it seemed possible to disagree with someone holding different opinions, or even different world views, yet to still respect them and even call them a friend. I remember the day when politicians...

Pastor viewpoint: How can we bridge the divide?
One of my favorite Bible stories is the conversion of the Apostle Paul in Acts 9. In this story Paul still goes by the name Saul, and Saul is on his way to the town of Damascus to round up any and all supporters of Jesus and throw them in jail. Saul is a persecutor of Christians...

Hudson pastor column: A life of shameless jubilation
I remember it like it was yesterday. The year is 2011, and the day is Feb. 6. My family and I have been watching together as our beloved Green Bay Packers played the Pittsburgh Steelers in a game you might have heard of called the Super Bowl. It had started off well for us, the Packers...

Sarah Nigbor column: Finding my roots, and Finnish ones at that
I've been told multiple times that I should write a book about my life. Some of my friends have equated some of it to a talk show episode. I'm inclined to agree.

Pastor Viewpoint: 'Ambassadors'
I have been reading the book of Daniel lately, and I believe that just like Daniel did in his day, Christians today can live distinctively and authentically Christian lives under any form of earthly government. In the United States, we are privileged to be living in a context of religious...

Pastor viewpoint: A devotional for parenting
As I was sitting down to write this pastor's viewpoint during this Lenten season, I began to reflect on the Lenten disciplines of repentance, prayer, fasting, and works of love. All of these help us to grow closer to Christ. As I reflected on repentance and our need to seek forgiveness...

Pastor column: Hope has a name
As Easter approaches, I never cease to be amazed at the difference that the hope of the resurrection makes in our daily lives. The way we live today, is directly related to what we believe about our future. I recently read a true story about two soldiers who were captured as prisoners...

Pastor Viewpoint: Keeping the faith

Pastor's column: Won't you be my neighbor?
"It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor." (Theme song from Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, PBS) Last week Tom Hanks was cast to play Fred Rogers in a biopic about Rogers life, "You Are My Friend." Personally, I am thankful that they are bringing Mr. Rogers'...
