Dream Big but Act Small

Years ago, I agreed to visit and preach at the smallest church on our district. On a good Sunday there would be ten people, on a bad Sunday, none. The new pastor was an enthusiastic, lay speaker and pastor want-to-be, who was full of energy, asked lots of questions, was a little brash, at times and often a little annoying. I was not thrilled to be there.

Conference Call Worship

The Coronavirus Crisis forced Churches to close their buildings for the safety of their members and greater community, but COVED-19 did not dampen our resolve to be the church. Leaders quickly began exchanging emails suggesting ideas on how our churches could support each other and our neighbors during the crisis. The immediate question? How would we worship together on Sunday morning?

Easter Faith

If Easter signifies more than bunnies, brightly colored eggs and new clothes then hard questions must be answered. Jesus resurrection has to be more than an interesting story celebrated annually? The Corona-virus Crisis has dramatically illustrated the need for answers to significant concerns. Where is God when the world is suffering? How does Easter Sunday help us find needed answers and hope when facing significant Monday problems?
