  • The drama of Holy Week, Good Friday and Easter is a love story. It is the story of God’s love. I think the parable of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32) is the love story Jesus told during his life to help prepare the disciples to understand how his death could be used by God to redeem the world.  The prodigal son is you and me. He tells his loving father (God) that he can’t wait for him to die.

  • As we come closer to Easter I want to celebrate God’s gift of grace. When we know and love Jesus Christ personally as our Lord and Savior then we can understand grace, which is God’s love and forgiveness of our sins which is not contingent on anything we do. We don’t earn grace and we don’t deserve it. It is a free gift given to us because God loves us so much.  In the Parable of the Day Laborers (Matthew 20:1-16) Jesus tells us all about the God’s out-of-control grace showered down upon us.

  • It was Aug. 1, 1997, and I had just begun a juice fast to seek guidance from God about whether it was time to move to a new church, and what kind of church God may want me to serve. What began as a three-day fast turned into the most spiritually intense 17 days of my life. God spoke to me in ways I had never experienced before, and through this He gave me a new vision for doing ministry, a leading to serve a new church development in La Grange and a beautiful daughter we adopted from China. Those are just the high points of those 17 days.

  •  In each of Paul’s letters to new Christian churches in the New Testament there is a section praying for the congregation. For example, in Colossians 1:9-14 Paul prays the people will have wisdom and understand God’s will, that they will have endurance and patience and be filled with joyful thanksgiving for the salvation, redemption and forgiveness of sins they have received through Jesus Christ. In the Christian faith we call this intercessory prayer, that is, prayer for others.
