• Sipping Coffee with the Pastor

    19 June, 2018

    I recall the water's edge in a sheltered cove, a quiet backwater to a much larger basin that spilled into the ocean. We would take our young family there with a joy-filled regularity. This paradise secreted away from the maddening winds of life became the perfect water playground for our…...[read more]

  • The Testing of Faith

    23 May, 2018

    Suffering confronts the benevolence of God. It is in our appalling darknesses that we mistrust the love He has shown us in our easy light. Yet, it is faith that raises its threatening fists against the strongest of enemies. Then the divinely implanted good truths will overthrow all outward contrary…...[read more]

  • Let Me feel Hope - Please?

    19 April, 2018

    Too many, too long have lived at hell's doors. Visiting the vestibule of hell is surely a metaphor to living without hope. For, hell holds no hope. Torment is present while hope is absent.

  • How to Hold the Upper Hand

    15 February, 2018

    With a frank pen Arthur W. Pink (1886-1952) rolled back a curtain on his fertile faith and shared: O what a God is ours! No mere fair-weather friend is the One who shed his blood to redeem us, but a "brother born of adversity". He has solemnly sworn: I will never leave thee nor…...[read more]

  • Life as a Certifiable Nut

    11 February, 2018

    Kindly many have advised me that I may well be a certifiable nut. Should they be correct, who am I to disagree? A dedicated and certifiable motorcycle loving nut (such as I am) never gives up on their hobby, even if the garage is as bare of bikes as their wallet is empty of cash. I may have sold my…...[read more]
