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
The morning after the Minnesota Vikings lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game, my sports crazy oldest son texted me. In addition to a bad cold and several, unappealing approaching tests, he said he felt "dead inside." He had lost his zest for everything he was...

Pastor's column: Won't you be my neighbor?

Pastor viewpoint: Searching takes time, but is worth it
Have you ever looked for something and felt so frustrated about not finding it that you just gave up your search? A few days ago my oldest son Ethan was looking for a Lego so that He could finish building his Star Wars creation. As I sat there helping him look for the Lego, he said...

When, if ever, do we love Him enough?
My brother once referred to pop as "trinkle" for almost an entire year of his life just because he thought it would be funny. That alone should tell you all you need to know about him, but I'll continue. He once drank an entire container of boysenberry syrup at a Perkins at midnight...
