Shasta’s encounter with the Lion – Aslan, the King of kings – did not so much change his circumstances as it did his perspective on them. He no longer felt sorry for himself and looked at his misfortunes in a different light. This is a beautiful picture of what happens when we encounter God through prayer. Encountering God through prayer changes us.

See the slides I received a Christmas gift last year that I enthusiastically use just about every day. It’s the Show Me How page-a-day calendar. It uses little graphics to teach me how to do just about anything. For example, just over a month ago I learned how to fend off a mountain lion. See […]

About six weeks ago several headlines featured mothers and their role in society. The content of the articles focused on stay-at-home moms after a report in Australia labeled stay-at-home mothers as the “greatest untapped potential” for the workforce, which in turn caused large economic loss to the country.[i] If you feel the way I do, […]

On May 23, 1986, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a letter to the editor, which expressed outrage that our nation’s most prestigious medical journal would “presume to roam beyond the borders of its own expertise…” The authors of the letter, Albert Vorspan and Rabbi Philip Hiat, were upset about an article entitled, […]

Introduction Who has ever walked the National Mall in Washington, D. C. to look at our national monuments?

In the Gospel of Luke we find an event so powerful that it caused some of Jesus’ followers to focus on eternal ownership rather than temporary rental. Jesus had a vision for these men, and it was much bigger than their own visions for themselves. That is true for us, too. Jesus’ vision for us points us to eternity.
|Series: What Child Is This?||Preacher: Kevin Freeman||Date: December 27, 2015||Scripture Reference: John 14:1-6|
If there was one thing the disciples had learned in their three years of training, it was that they needed Jesus and were lost without him. Two thousand years later, that fact hasn’t changed. We are lost without Jesus, because Jesus is still the source for life. As we have investigated some of Jesus’ “I am” statements in our Advent series, “What Child is this?” we come to one that is perhaps the most well-known – and nowadays even infamous – of them all.

Today we take the Lord’s Supper, and it is a celebration of the fellowship we share. As we prepare our hearts for Communion, we should remember the quality of our fellowship. What makes the fellowship of a church unique? The quality of any given fellowship is only as strong as its underlying bond…Have you given thought to the bond of fellowship that we enjoy here as Christians? After we celebrate with the Lord’s Supper, will you leave here feeling like a family member or an elevator car passenger?

Some of you may know that this past Tuesday was Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A. Unlike the other 364 days of the year, Cow Appreciation Day is the one day when you actually want to look like a cow, sort of. Dressing up as a cow from head to hoof garners a free combo meal. […]
