The year is almost over, and 2018 will be here on Monday! It's hard to believe another year has flown by -- but, as they say, time flies when you're having fun. We've certainly been busy this year at RSCC, and today I want to offer a recap of some of what we've accompl...

Christmas is over, and the year swiftly draws to a close. Many of you are still recovering from -- or celebrating -- the holiday, but I think we can all agree we have been blessed beyond all imagination this week. Even if we didn't receive a single gift from under the...

As a final blog post before Christmas, I present a few things to keep in mind this holiday.

Don'ts:

  • don't forget what Christmas is all about

  • don't fling your mashed potatoes at Uncle Bob at dinner

  • don't tell your family's token member of the opposite politi...

On Sunday morning, predictably I'll be preaching from Luke 2 -- the Christmas story. I know, I know; you've all heard it read at least once every year of your life. I have, too, but ever since I first saw the Charlie Brown Christmas special years ago, it's always read...

Christmas is one week from today. You'll probably have one of three reactions to that news: panic ("I haven't finished my shopping yet!"), relief ("It's almost over!"), or genuine joy ("It's the most wonderful time of the year!"). Different people fall into different c...

Tonight is our church Christmas caroling excursion, and I'm excited. Even if you can't carry a tune in a bucket, it's fun to go around in our community singing Christmas songs. The songs themselves often go unnoticed, so I wanted to give a few of them time to shine tod...

The theme for the second week of Advent is peace, and peace is a wonderful thing. It might be argued we have more peace this week at RSCC than last week -- after all, now the hanging of the greens and the Christmas play are finished, and we can relax a bit. Both events...

Since this is one of the few times Protestants will actively discuss Mary, I'm going to take full advantage of it and post about her again today. After all, as a Roman Catholic priest once told me, every statement about Mary is a statement about Christ. Today, then, le...

One of the hardest things for the nonbeliever to accept about Christmas is the virgin birth, that Mary was a virgin when she gave birth to the Christ Child. To be fair, many liberal theologians abandoned that belief long ago, too, to the point it became a dividing line...

With December finally here and Christmas now mere weeks away, I want to talk about some the trappings surrounding our celebration of Nativity. Perhaps the most obvious is the "giving" aspect. Yes, we give Christmas presents to one another, but this is also the time of...
