Thoughtful Thursday: Listen to Me

Sunday’s sermon verses are Proverbs 1:20-33, but the NLT version of verse 33 is what jumped out at me while I was reading it today.  “But all who listen to me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm.” I don’t believe that verse means that nothing will go...

Thoughtful Thursday – Forgiveness is Hard!

This week two of my daughter’s best friends played a practical joke on her and it was NOT funny. The hurt, anger, and betrayal she felt when she figured out who played the “joke” won’t be forgotten anytime soon, but now that the truth is revealed and the tears and...

Thoughtful Thursday: Fruit of the Spirit

You probably saw that Pastor Glen will be beginning a new sermon series, “Fruit of the Spirit” this Sunday. It’s a topic we are familiar with, but one that I personally need to be reminded of…frequently. Galatians 5:22-23 tells us that “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,...
