• Faith Column

    As I get older and as I read the Bible, I find myself growing more and more old fashioned - really, really old fashioned. For instance, I try to conduct myself in my marriage the way God intended it in the beginning.

    Now let me mention right up front that there is so much for me to do within the marriage that I don't have much time at all to critique my wife. Suffice it to say, she's better at being a wife than I am at being a husband.

  • Parson's ponderings

    We are in a season of transition at our congregation; but then, any growing congregation is always in a season of transition. In fact, the world in which we live is in constant transition.

    It's easy to get discouraged when there's so much transition and change. "Why can't we just do it the way we've always done?" "I just can't find the time." "I have too much to do; I'm too busy." We've all said these words.

  • Why does God allow bad things to happen?

    Why does God let harm come to innocent people? Why does he allow drunk drivers to kill entire families? Why does he sit on his hands while men beat their wives? Why does he look the other way when mothers drown or burn their own children? Or why does he seem preoccupied as pedophiles harm one child after another? Why?
