Pastor column: God is good in all season
"So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up." Galatians 6:9 Last week, I spoke for the Senior Adult ministry conference from the church's oversight body. The topic of the conference was, "Passing the...

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...

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: Our conquering champion
Here we are at another annual holiday. We are in the middle of the week commonly known a Holy Week. As Christians, we are remembering our Savior in a number of ways. It's the time for looking back at the events of Jesus Christ almost 2,000 years ago. It's also the time for looking...

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
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?
"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'...

Pastor viewpoint: Sin is not new, but repetitive
Whether we are priests, pastors or ministers, we share a lot in common — including listening to people. Often we are called upon to listen to people's problems, among which are folks' sins. In some churches there is formal opportunity for this to happen through a rite or sacrament...

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...

This is not what I signed up for
Sometimes we interpret resistance the wrong way. We think if things don't go smoothly or the way we planned, then God is not in it. We often view tests as nothing more than an attack from the devil. These tests or trials, are opportunities to grow and advance, they may mean you are...

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...
