We had our Sunday School Christmas Program entitled “Stranger in the Manger” as well as a short message from Pastor Kirk titled “What Is the Truth About Fear?” Fear is one of those emotions that nearly everyone experiences in life.

Lord, Teach Us to Pray – Part 2

We are prone to avoid or fear activities that we lack confidence in performing.

Parable of the Forgiven Debtors: Who Is This?

Imagine the look...

Parable of the Persistent Widow

Over the course of time I have discovered that things I undertake out of a sense of guilt are things I do not do well nor find real enjoyment in accomplishing. Guilt might prove to be a capable motivator to get something going, but it cannot sustain that which it began. On the other hand,...
