  • My Living Will: Committing to Leadership
  • My Living Will – Being Thankful

    Over the last month I have seen and heard more Christmas commercials than ever and we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving.

     Thanksgiving has become the forgotten holiday which is sadly all too common in America.  For a land blessed with such an amazing bounty we sure do have a lot of whining, moaning and complaining about the lack of stuff and that is just under my own roof.  Have you decided to give a living will of thankfulness to your family and friends?  What keeps you from being more thankful?

  • Southeast buys Crestwood center

    Southeast Christian Church will become the new landowner of the Crestwood Station Shopping Center, the church has announced. 

    The church, which opened a campus in the shopping center nearly three years ago, has an agreement in place to become the center’s landowner for $3.3 million. The agreement excludes the space currently occupied by All About Kids. 

  • How can I live life with passion?

    In a devotional recorded in A Fifth Portion of Chicken Soup for the Soul (© 1998), an encounter at the airport is shared by Michael Hargrave.  He tells of a man who is met by his family after his flight. 

    He hugs and kisses each as if he has been gone a long time, but with great passion he gives his wife the longest kiss Mr. Hargrave had ever witnessed, and then stares longingly into her eyes and then mouths the words, “I love you.”

  • Southeast Christian buys land for Oldham Campus expansion

    Southeast Christian Church will become the new landowner of the Crestwood Station Shopping Center, the church announced.  

    The church, which opened a campus in the shopping center nearly three years ago, has an agreement in place to become the center’s landowner for $3.3 million. The agreement excludes the space currently occupied by All About Kids.  

  • Living passionately has lasting effects

    We know what a will is.  A legal document that establishes how we want all our worldly possessions to be divided amongst the people we care about and the organizations we want to support in our death. 

    Today I want to write about your “Living Will.”  This is what we want to pass on to those around us by the way we live our lives.  Our legacy of beliefs, morals and attitudes that we hope are communicated by the way we live our lives. 

  • We are commanded to be joyful

    A minister was speaking to a Sunday School class about the things money can’t buy.

    “It can’t buy laughter and it can’t buy love” he told them. Driving his point home he said, “What would you do if I offered you $1,000 not to love your mother and father?”

    Stunned silence ensued. Finally a small voice queried, “How much would you give me not to love my big sister?”

    Last week we looked at the importance of laughter and joy in life.  Can we make these a part of a “living will?”

  • Sharing the signs of God in nature

    Paul writes in Romans 1:20, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” 

    Some of the examples of this also include Christian symbols found in nature that inspire people.

  • Righteousness-a never failing stream

    Over the last two weeks I have looked at the powerful words from the prophet Amos.  Speaking for God we read, “I hate, I despise your religious festivals; your assemblies are a stench to me…But let justice roll on like a river, and righteousness like a never-failing stream (Amos 5:21 & 24).
