Good Afternoon, I’m sure this is a bit unexpected to receive the Saturday note from me instead of Pastor Eichstadt.  The Board of Elders have been in touch with Sue this morning as Pastor suffered an issue with his heart yesterday evening.  Sue found him unresponsive on the floor as they were getting ready for…

Good morning: You know the joy of a good book. It’s the one that draws you into its world from page one and becomes more engrossing with each chapter. It’s the book that makes you put off chores and other activities so that you can keep reading. Even though you know you’re going to be…

Good morning: Before bedtime I usually grab my phone and check the weather forecast. One of the first things I do most mornings is to again look at the forecast. A lot depends on the weather. This past week of wall-to-wall sunshine and unseasonably warm temps has been ideal for raking and other yardwork. On…

Good morning: What was your first prayer this morning? Did you use Luther’s morning prayer to thank God for His protection overnight and ask Him to keep you “from sin and every evil” in the day ahead? Or maybe you offered a unique prayer from your own heart praising the Lord for His many blessings…

Good evening: Have faith! How often have you heard that? Will your team win the championship? Have faith! Will I get the job? Will the weather be nice this weekend? Have faith! The question is, faith in what or in whom? “Believe in yourself!” some would say. But we know all too well that we…

Good morning: “You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing” (Ps. 145:16). Again today we will experience firsthand the truth of David’s words in the Psalm.

Good morning: We’ve all had them, those calls that come to your cell phone with no identifying name. Most of us probably ignore them or block them from calling again. Suppose this morning you are curious enough to take the call. Suppose the voice on the line asks, “What is your address? What is your…

Good morning: Have you ever dreamed of playing in the NFL or being chosen for the cast of a major motion picture? Why weren’t you drafted by your favorite team or chosen for an audition in Hollywood? Why were others chosen and not you? It’s not a mystery. Gifts and talents were seen in others…

Good morning: Always tell the truth. Not only believers, but people in general would agree it’s an important principle to live by. Being honest and forthright builds trust in relationships and prevents misunderstandings. “The LORD detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful” (Prov. 12:22). But there is more to godly truthfulness…

Good morning: Every day for months, dump trucks and construction vehicles have rumbled down the street past church heading for a major building project nearby. At times those trucks have been going far above the 25 mph speed limit. It’s dangerous to runners, bikers, and children walking to school. However, I’ve hesitated in contacting the…
