One of the iconic architectural features of any stereotypical church is stained glass windows. Not all of them have them, of course, but churches and stained glass are inextricably linked in our collective consciousness. The two just go together. At RSCC, our windows p...

Sometimes we just need to return to the fundamentals, get back to the basics. Today that's all I want to do. One of the earliest confessions of faith in church history is the Apostles' Creed, which summarizes the basics as follows:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,...

The title of today's post has nothing to do with what's moral or permissible. Instead it's the offer of the volunteer. This is the person who sees something that needs done and either immediately handles it or asks, "Can I do that? If it needs done, could I handle it?"...

Sunday will be our Homecoming service and our second annual car show. Homecoming is always a great day. It's a day of worship and celebration, of fun and food, of family and music. This is a day for all of us to come together, reunite with those who were pulled in diff...

Naturally, this h...

The motto of my generation (and those who have followed it) seems to be rather Shakespearean: "This above all: to thine own self be true." It's a quote from Hamlet, which no one would read if our high school English teachers didn't make us (sorry, Bill), so I supp...

While I was in seminary, I spent some time volunteering with the youth group of a local church. A friend was the youth minister there, and he brought me in to help with events and other special goings-on. The first time my services were required was for the One Way Wee...
