Pastoral Letter for May 15, 2021

Pastoral Letter for a Faithful Church May 15, 2021 Dear friends, Exactly one year ago today I wrote my 10th Pastoral Letter of the pandemic to announce that we were going to resume in-person worship in June (of 2020). At that time, I pleaded with everyone to extend grace to each other even as we are, Philippians 1:27b, "standing firm in one spirit, with...

This Sunday I'll have the privilege of sharing God's word with you all. (Unless I break my other foot, in which case you'll get pastor Frank again). As I asked last week, please pray for my preparation and delivery, that it'd be a blessing to us as a church. As we approach the end of any book, play, or movie, it's natural for us to expect some degree of resolution. If t...

This Sunday I'll have the privilege of sharing God's word with you all. It's been a little while since I last preached, and it's going to be my first sermon at Potomac Hills as an intern. So, as you read this, please pray for my preparation and delivery, that it'd be a blessing to us as a church. As we approach the end of any book, play, or movie, it's natural for us to...

For those of you who have kids, are kids, or were kids have you ever heard this complaint? "He got more than me!" Perhaps you were handing out candy or dishing up ice cream? Well, this week, you're going to hear it again! But there will be no candy. Nor will there be ice cream. Just land. Lots and lots of land. I know you would never think that any part of the Bible was...

As we continue in our series in Joshua this week, we're going to get a serious case of dj vu. Just as we saw massive armies being completely wrecked by the Lord and Joshua in chapter 10, we're going to see much of the same this week. This week's passage, all of Joshua 11 and 12, gives us an account of the northern campaign and a summary of all the kings that were defeated ...

Are there parts of the Bible that make you uncomfortable? Irritated? Angry? Historically, our text for this week, Joshua 10:16-43, is one of those texts. We'll be looking at the Southern Campaign in the Conquest of Canaan. And, once again, we'll see that God tells the Israelites to slaughter the Canaanites. And, once again, we'll probably cringe and question and doubt. And...

How many times have we sinned against the Lord and wondered if we had finally gone too far? That's not the way the Gospel and grace work, but it's still a thought that creeps in to strike at our confidence in Christ. And it feels right and real because it's half-true. It takes a good look at sin, and it correctly judges that sin is a big deal. But it forgets that grace doe...

Have you ever been conned? Someone promised you something and then it never happened. And it cost you some money? Then you found out later that the lie was intentional, the other party had never planned on fulfilling their promise, or delivering the product. You got scammed and you probably felt angry and frustrated and wanted to get back at the other party? Well, welcom...

There's lots of common words that have taken on a negative connotation these days. These are words that used to be considered positive words, but with the changing values of our society, they're viewed more negatively now. One of those words is "obedience." Our society has placed such a high value on the concept of "individual freedom" and has given it somewhat unconstrain...

I wonder how many of you remember the opening sequence to ABC's Wide World of Sports? The show ran every Saturday afternoon from April of 1961 to January of 1998. And for those 37 years, it always began the same way, "Spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of sport the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat the human drama of athletic competition This ...
