Folks, it's been a week. 

Our church family has been through the wringer these past few days. We've mourned the passing of one of our own; two members have had surgery, one major; others have had procedures or are now awaiting tests in the coming weeks. We've all run th...

Today's blog was delayed a bit because, well, life happens. Some things in life we can prepare for; others, not so much. And then there are those events that, no matter how much you prepare, you simply can't be ready for. Other things get pushed to the back burner, del...

It's one of the greatest lines in science fiction: "I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further." Few of us are as evil as Darth Vader, but we've all had times we thought it was time to alter the deal and renegotiate. Things just didn't go the way we thou...

April showers bring May flowers, and what do May flowers bring? Pilgrims, of course! I know, it's a bad joke and a tired pun, but it's still funny (or at least it is to me; then again, I have a notoriously warped sense of humor). The Pilgrims probably fit better in a b...
