Have you ever made a promise to someone your spouse, your child, your best friend, a co-worker and then, without even thinking about it broke it? Perhaps you had forgotten you made this promise. Maybe you didn't remember the promise until after it was broken. Possibly you had to be reminded that you had made this promise. And it was made worse because the reminder came ...

It's hard to believe that we're 5 months into the pandemic and that we've been back at in-person worship for 10 weeks. It has felt like both a blur and an eternity. Through it all, the Lord has consistently shown Himself to be faithful to us. Praise God for the many ways we've had to rely on Him and for the many ways that we've seen Him be present in the midst of hard time...

Mark 14:27-42 Have you ever marveled at the unwise choices someone else has made? Have you ever found yourself wondering, "What in the world were they thinking? I would have never done that?"

It's been a crazy time lately, hasn't it? There's been significant losses for some families in our church, the covid crisis dominates the newsfeed, protests over economic disruption, gender identity, and racial equality have filled our streets. Do you ever have days when you wish Lester Holt would open his newscast by saying, "Nothing strange happened today. It's all been ...

After two weeks (thanks to Frank Wang and Frank Pugh for ably filling the pulpit in my absence), we're once again plumbing the depths of The Gospel of Mark this week. We've come to three seemingly unrelated incidents in our passage this week, Mark 12:35-44. In these verses, Jesus takes on three challenges. There's a theological challenge, a moral challenge, and a spiritual...

Entertainment businesses have taken a real hit during Covid-19 shutdowns. Movie theaters and sports have been shut down, and many of us have had to resort to watching re-runs. While we like to re-watch our favorite movies or re-live our favorite team's victories, the excitement of the unexpected is not there. We know what's going to happen, even if we can't remember all of...
