In the Presence

In the Presence 2nd Sunday in Lent 2 Kings 2: 1-12 February 28, 2021 Mark 9: 2-9 Once upon a time, there was a young boy who walked to Sunday School every single Sunday.  An old sinner who lived near the boy’s path decided he would intercept the young fellow and “throw a wet blanket” on his faith.  So, one Sunday morning, he stepped in front of the boy and said, “Son, I’ll give you a nickel if you can…

Lead Me in Your Truth

Lead Me in Your Truth              1st Lent Feb. 21, 2021  Psalm 25:1-10   1 Peter 3:18-22   Mark 1:9-15 I have been thinking this week about TRUTH, and (as always) it has reminded me of a movie—one that focuses on how important it is to tell the truth.  It’s called “Liar, Liar” and it stars Jim Carrey as a lawyer who uses lies in every aspect of his life, both his professional life and his personal life.  He is suddenly no longer…
Ash Wednesday

“Family Under Your Nose”

“Family Under Your Nose” Ash Wednesday Luke 16: 19-31 February 17, 2021 Back in 2008, a movie came out that had an impact on my life.  It is called, “Slumdog Millionaire.”  Have any of you seen it?  I had been vaguely aware of life in the slums of India, but this movie “put a face” on the children.  They were destitute, yes, but also full of hope and promise, and they were eager for education.  The main character managed to…

The Cure

The Cure 2 Kings 5:1-14    February 14, 2021   Mark 1:40-45 Many of you know that I spent five days in the hospital in the middle of January, recovering from COVID-19.  From my room, I could hear the coughs and cries of other patients in the “COVID ward,” and I marveled at all the nurses and therapists who never seemed to be discouraged by the whole ordeal.  As the “brain fog” cleared, I found myself thinking a lot about healing,…

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

The Pastor’s Perspective An Occasional Note Regarding Activities, News, Rumors, and Juicy Tidbits from Pastor Pat December 9, 2020 Good News! When we obtained a copy of Directive 035 (REVISED), we read “Houses of worship with a listed fire code capacity of fewer than 200 persons may conduct indoor services for up to 50 persons if they are able to do so in a manner consistent with social distancing guidelines promulgated by the Nevada Department of Business and Industry.”  In…
