  • On the Eve of Graduation Time: A Few Words of Wisdom

    This column is a rerun from when my daughter graduated from high school three years ago. Now it is my son’s turn. Between Senior Dedication (our school’s version of Baccalaureate) and graduation, I will be up to my eyeballs in speeches and others’ advice. This has led me to come up with my own list that I would tell graduates: Shut Up! I had to shush the men sitting behind me at my daughter’s graduation during the national anthem. Really?

  • Feed My Sheep

    We are in a flurry of activity here at the church! It has gotten us all a bit discombobulated. The floor installers from Dalworth are installing new flooring in the Sunday School hallway to match the new floor in the ministry center and the Fellowship Hall. They will also install this flooring in the narthex of the church. Everywhere the old carpet was, the new floor is going down. This is a project of the Capital Campaign. (Your contributions at work!) When [...] Read More »

  • Spring has Sprung

    It’s spring! The calendar says so, and so does the weather outside. As a “farm kid,” I’m accustomed to all the conventional wisdom about the weather. I take most of those old sayings “with a grain of salt” (another old saying!), but when March “comes in like a lamb” it does seem to “go out like a lion.” We entered March pretty lamb-like. The storms this week have been anything but. I have been amazed at how early spring came this [...] Read More »

  • Join us for 360 Experience — a new way of connecting with God!

    When I was little and didn’t feel well, my mother used to put a towel over my pillow. The purpose was to help catch anything that might come out of my body. But what it really did for me was to make me feel loved and cared for. So much so that I did it for my kids and even today will do it when I don’t feel well. Feeling that towel on my pillow brings back warm and fuzzy [...] Read More »
