Successful Losers

Mark 8:27-38 ———– Proverbs 1:20-33 —-16th Sunday after Pentecost September 12, 2021 (Holding up Romex): Do you see this wire?  Anyone who has helped build a house or has done any wiring project will recognize it.  Everybody I know calls it “Romex,” and it makes life as we know it possible!  Without wire like this running through our homes and businesses and even here at church, life would be very different.  Because electricity flows through the wire, amazing things happen. …

Dogs, Demons, and Discrimination

James 2: 1-17———Mark 7: 24-37—-15th Sunday after Pentecost September 5, 2021 One of my favorite authors is Dr. Seuss! At our house, How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a favorite every December. The old animated version seen on TV brings to life a story about how celebrating the True Meaning of Christmas is more important than all the presents and decorations and feasting. It is a story of redemption in which the hardhearted Grinch is drawn into the celebration instead…

Body Armor

August 22                   “Body Armor”           Rev. Patrick Mecham           Ephesians 6:10-20             John 6:56-69 13th Sunday after Pentecost We all understand that, when a new recruit joins the military, he or she goes through extensive training and physical fitness preparation before they are sent into action. But we wouldn’t think of deploying them without a helmet or body armor—that would be just plain foolish! In Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, he’s saying something similar: Christians need to put on body armor…

The Pastor’s Perspective

The Pastor’s Perspective An Occasional Note Regarding Activities, News, Rumors, and Juicy Tidbits from Pastor Pat December 23, 2020 It’s a Boy! You may remember that, in a previous issue, we informed you that we are going to be grandparents again.  Our daughter and son-in-law are expecting their first child in May (on or around Mothers’ Day), and the latest ultrasound revealed that it is a boy!  While we would be happy with either gender, we are delighted that we…

The Pastor’s Perspective An Occasional Note Regarding Activities, News, Rumors, and Juicy Tidbits from Pastor Pat December 9, 2020 Good News!
