DEVOTION – ADVENT  “And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”  (Mark 13:37) “Place your order today to receive it by December 24.” Modern shipping services are pretty remarkable. Most orders we place online arrive on our doorstep three days later. If we’re in a real pinch, we can pay extra and […] Read More
In our family, there are few things we enjoy more than a freshly picked tomato out of our garden. As I write this article, the soil has been prepared and the tomato plants are in the garden and have been caged. We know that we will have to make sure the plants are watered and […] Read More
DEVOTION – NEW LIFE The year is 1753, in America. As long as you can remember, you have had to obey every whim of your master. He determines everything you do. He tells you when to get up and when to go to bed. He determines what you eat, how much you eat, and when […] Read More

DEVOTION – FATHER’S DAY FAITHFUL On the third Sunday of June, we are given the opportunity to reflect with thanksgiving on the blessings of our fathers. We buy cards, neckties, and golf balls to show our appreciation to those who worked so hard to raise us, train us, and provide for us. We are especially […] Read More
Reading through the four Gospels—particularly during the days leading up to the birth of Jesus—one often finds many of God’s people anxiously looking for ‘the Christ.’ The good news which the angels brought to the shepherds was that a Savior had been born “who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11). Simeon was promised that before […] Read More
Many blessings of the Reformation of the 1500’s still affect us today. We could mention having a Bible translation in our native tongue, having many hymns to sing praises to God, putting into practice the doctrine of the priesthood of all believers (that Christ has given every believer—not just to the pope and his priests—the […] Read More
