Good morning: Do you ever listen to the news or read a report online and end up more confused than before? One expert says the coronavirus is not nearly as bad as predicted. Someone else warns that it’s far worse than people think. One says that our lives will be forever changed. Others optimistically state…

Good morning: These are great times! I haven’t heard anyone say that. To even suggest it would no doubt bring incredulous, disbelieving looks from others. Far from calling them great, we would be far more likely to describe these past weeks as stressful, worrisome, even life-threatening. The strain is becoming more obvious with reports of…

Good morning: We continue to pray for those infected with the coronavirus worldwide and ask that the Lord would soon provide relief according to His good will and the means He might choose. Of course, it becomes much more personal when it involves people who are close to us. This past week our fellow believer…

Looking down distracts you from the job at hand and magnifies the fear of falling. “Don’t look down” would have been good advice for Peter during a violent storm on the Sea…

Good morning: Not being able to attend church does not mean we stop being church. What Peter writes still holds true: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out darkness into his wonderful light”…

Good morning: If we were going to choose one word to describe the past several weeks it might be “uncertainty.” The uncertainty is evident in hand sanitizer flying off store shelves, sporting events being canceled and the implementation of travel restrictions and quarantines. New terms like “social distancing” are heard every day. An economy which…

Good morning: One day every summer the local A&W restaurant offers free root beer floats. It sounds great. Who wouldn’t take them up on the offer? But I discovered it wasn’t quite as wonderful as advertised. There were restrictions. The free float was only a modest size and was only offered certain hours for as…
