Good morning: Happy Fourth of July! Even as our country grapples with COVID and other serious problems, we have reason to thank God for the many blessings He has given our nation, in particular, freedoms which millions of others around the world can only dream of. Imagine living in a country where your every move…

Good morning, Can you tell fact from fiction? It used to be much easier. In the pre-internet era a magazine in the grocery checkout lane might have had a sensational title such as “My next-door neighbor is a Martian!” Obviously, it was merely a sensational title to sell magazines. But now with Twitter, blogs, and…

Good morning: “You’ll thank me later.” Has anyone ever told you that? Did you believe them? When you wanted to drop chemistry in high school, did your parents refuse their permission and tell you, “You’ll thank us later”? Did an employer give you what appeared to be a terrible assignment and say, “You’ll see. This…

Good morning, The photo app on my phone regularly sends me pictures from the past, maybe family gatherings from a year ago or a vacation trip in 2015. It’s fun to remember those days and experiences. It also is a poignant reminder of how things change. Children grow up to have families of their own….

Good morning: What’s wrong with people?! Have you wondered that especially in light of all that’s been happening? Injustices, hatred, and violence keep growing. It is not a problem limited to the inner city or to other people besides us. The sin within which explodes into acts of hate and destruction lies in our hearts…

Good morning, Do you know what each of us does more than 23,000 times each day, yet we hardly ever think about it? We breathe. But just because we don’t think about it doesn’t mean it’s not important. Without our lungs taking in air we would soon die. One of the dangerous symptoms of COVID…

Good morning: It was in the middle of our last building expansion effort here at church, and we were stuck. We were faced with a building code rule that didn’t make sense for the size and layout of the church building. The inspector, however, didn’t have the authority to change the law and so we…

Good morning: After not being able to gather around Word and Sacrament for a couple of months, I think we all have greater appreciation for David’s words in Ps. 122: “I rejoiced with those who said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the LORD!’” (Ps. 122:1). Taking into account recommendations of our…

Good morning, Does it seem as though during the past couple of months there are more things that we can’t do than things we’re allowed to do? For weeks parks which normally are always open were closed. Have you thought how nice it would be to dine out only to drive by the restaurant and…

Good morning: Do you ever get the feeling that people are “just making things up as they go along”? Have you ever done it? You don’t really know what lies ahead or have a plan in mind. A new graduate might not have any idea of what they want to do next, and so they…
