I’m a Christian, But…

Viral used to carry a very negative connotation (“I have a viral infection” meant this was someone you wanted to steer clear of for a while!), but today the term can mean something good from an advertising or marketing perspective.  We talk about “viral videos” or “viral marketing,” meaning something is spreading both quickly and broadly across various media sources…

Back to School Thoughts

Labor Day weekend means a lot of different things to folks.  For some it is a celebration of work and workers.  For others it is the last hurrah of summer, one final opportunity to enjoy the grill and the outdoors before the chill of fall sets in.  In Michigan, however, Labor Day has a shared meaning for parents and children alike:  back to school.  This week will herald…

The Lack of Grieving

Over the past several weeks, there has been much in the news that reveals the depravity of the human condition apart from Christ.  As I write this note, several videos have been released regarding the horrors of what Planned Parenthood (an oxymoron of the first order) has been doing in regards to its death industry.  We have seen people, on camera, discuss how they…

VBS

It’s finally that time of year again:  VBS!  Each summer our church has the great opportunity to share the Gospel with kids of all ages.  Many of us have very good memories of VBS from our childhood years.  I was blessed to have Miss Debbie as the VBS director at the church I grew up in.  Miss Debbie had a heart for children and loved seeing them grow in their knowledge…

The Travesty of Planned Parenthood

In recent days, a series of undercover videos have been released which appear to show that Planned Parenthood has been in the business of harvesting the remains of aborted babies for parts to sell to biomedical research companies, in violation of federal and state laws.  The most recent video, the fourth, was perhaps the most horrific one yet, with the VP of Planned…

Forgiveness

In the aftermath of the fatal shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, the families and friends of the victims faced many emotions:  grief, anger, disbelief, and horror, among many others.  People around the nation and the world shared in those emotions, as well.  Once the perpetrator of these horrendous acts was apprehended, we saw a person whose personality and…

Wow!

Wow!  I’m not sure that I can adequately express the gratitude and honor I feel in response to Faith Baptist Church’s call issued on Sunday, June 28 to me as the Senior Pastor.  I wanted to take this opportunity to say, “Thank you,” to each and every one of you for the confidence you have in me to lead you and this church in the days ahead.  It goes without saying that we…
