The Christmas season can be difficult to navigate. What is the priority for a Christian during this season? Perhaps we can start with a celebration of hope, by celebrating the Child, Jesus!
Thanksgiving and generosity are linked. It begins with a thankful heart, which leads to a generous spirit, which builds even more thankfulness; at least it is supposed to work that way!
We were privileged to have Rev. Bill Reynolds in our service yesterday, hear an update on the ministry in Rhode Island, and hear a wonderful message on the need for Christians to love people…even those who hate us.
How can we give thanks, always, and for everything? That’s what we’re told we’re supposed to do…
Giving thanks takes effort; effort that is needed to replace our natural tendency to complain with the spiritual tendency to give thanks.
You will play like you practice. It is a statement that almost every coach in the world has said, at one time or another. It is common, because it is so true. This truth applies not just in sports, but also in our spiritual lives. We need to practice being thankful.
One way of looking at life is that it is a series of lessons that we must learn. We know that the Lord teaches us lessons. The question is, have we learned the lessons that God has tried to teach us?
Anger is such a destructive emotion, especially when that anger is directed toward God.
The Gospel is the mission of the church. The question is whether or not we are sharing the Gospel message. Are we convinced? Are we consumed by the Holy Spirit? Are we aware that we are commanded to share? These are the questions that are brought before us by Chris Davenport, pastor of The Bridge Church in Fredericksburg, VA.
