Honest to God! When Words Fail (Romans 8:22-28, Luke 18:9-14)

We are starting a four-week focus on prayer.

OK, I’m hearing out there some pleased murmurs, but also some sighing and guilty groans. So many of us feel that we don’t pray as we should — as often as we should or in the way that we should — like there was some standard or ideal to reach as a real Christian. Truth is, I’ve never met a Christian who was satisfied with their prayer life. They may have even earnestly tried different techniques or spurts of honest effort, only to feel later that they’ve somehow… failed.

Even the great Apostle Paul admits we often don’t know how to pray. (See the whole text Romans 8:22-28.) We may not know what to pray because we think there are certain phrases or words or attitudes that God expects from us, and when we don’t use them, the prayer just doesn’t have the same oomph. (Check out what Jesus had to say about rolling out a long string of flowery words in Luke 18:9-14.)more...

Heal this Land: The Ultimate ‘If-Then’ Statement (2 Chronicles 7:11-16)

Then the LORD said to Solomon, " ... IF My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, THEN I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. [emphasis added by Eric] 2 Chronicles 7:14

Throughout the Bible, there are DOZENS of verses about God’s never-ending, unavoidable “love” for ALL people, for we are His creation – His CHILDREN. After all ...

What is there NOT to love about us?
[Embrace a full dose of sarcasm as we chew on that question]

God’s LOVE for us ... according to scripture ... is UNconditional.  
HOWEVER ...
God’s FORGIVENESS ... according to scripture ... is CONditional.more...

Heal the Land: A Christian & A Citizen (Romans 13:1-7, Mark 12:13-17)

Over time we have come up with various forms of government that have been used and abused to fulfill the responsibly God has given us. In this scripture Paul does not attempt to justify any particular form of government or even condemn what may be bad about government.

His ultimate message is that God is in control and will be with us in all we face. He created us and, in our nation, our forefathers chose our mode of government. Paul would say that God has been instrumental in setting it in place and, as Christians, we must honor it.more...

Heal this Land: An Opinion about Dominion (Genesis 1:24-31)

Then God said, "Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." Genesis 1:26 [New Revised Standard Version]

I was the younger of two children.  My brother, only two years older than me, was ALWAYS a foot taller.  My mom would dress us alike, and so believing we were twins, people would ask, “what happened to him?”more...

Jesus' Incarnational Ministry is Alive & Well in Our Youth

Last week I sat down on a mountain in Tennessee listening to four students talk about how this church, my home church, had changed their lives and I was reminded, again, why I do this job. The last four weeks of my life have revolved around trips. Planning, prepping, traveling, troubleshooting, rinse and repeat. It was tiring. It involved working as a team and communicating. It involved things that were out of my gift set and comfort zone. I would be lying if I told you that I didn’t outwardly celebrate when we turned in our rental van keys today, completing a month full of trips with a combined ninety people participating in both trips. As I sit on my couch reflecting on this month, all I can say is that it was worth it in spades.more...

Food for Thought: What Does It Mean To Serve?

What does it mean to serve? Consider Christ’s example. He gave up everything in heaven to live among us, subjecting Himself to dishonor and human frailty. He loved even those who rejected Him. He humbled himself and washed the disciples’ feet at Passover. This was far from anything a king should do. He even knew these men were about to abandon Him but served them anyway.more...

Ordinary to Extraordinary: Despite Everything (2 Corinthians 6:3-10, Mark 4:35-41)

You’ve heard it said by others when you were trying to recruit them to do something (and maybe you have said it yourself to others):

“I would love to do that for you (or for the church or for God), but I’ve got this other thing that keeps me too busy. If you knew about it, you would understand that I’m doing the best that I can. Maybe I can get to it later, though.”

As a pastor, I do understand the many burdens that people face, many of which are hidden. It could be that the person sitting right beside you is broken-hearted or in panic over a doctor’s report or in grief over a loss or is desperate to break free of an addiction — all of which is camouflaged by a pasted-on smile. I also understand that there are seasons when some aspects of our life insist on dominance while other aspects are forced to take a back seat. A spouse is ill. We have to study for the final exam. Someone dear is going through something awful and we need to be there for them.more...

From Ordinary to Extraordinary: Below "See" Level (1 Samuel 16:1-7)

“God looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

A majority vote among God’s followers doesn’t necessarily mean that God is in favor of something.

A few thousand years ago, Israel was seen as a Kingdom with no actual “king.” Samuel was the town prophet and primary messenger for God’s will, but he was getting too old for this kinda work.  The leaders gathered and demanded for Samuel to appoint a king, so they could be “just like all the other nations.” [1 Samuel 8]more...

Ordinary to Extraordinary: Appearances Lie (1 Samuel 16:4-7, Mark 4:30-32)

The first king of Israel was Saul, a tall man who looked every bit the king. (Did you know that most presidential elections has gone to the candidate who is the taller one?) But the Lord has now moved on and has called on Samuel to anoint a new king-in-waiting — in secret — until his time has come. When the politically and spiritually well-placed prophet Samuel comes to town, everyone is a little freaked out. Has he come in peace? (1 Samuel 16:4-7)more...

Dear Trinity United Methodist Family: Thank You

Dear Trinity United Methodist Family,
 
Thank you for being a leader in our community.
 
More specifically, I would like to thank you for the excellent work that you all do with our students through the TeamREAD ministry. TeamREAD has been a blessing for a variety of reasons. First, it has provided many of our kindergarten through second grade students with a person that he/she can consistently count on each week to spend time with and genuinely value their thoughts and dreams. Second, TeamRead has provided our students with explicit support and encouragement to develop their literacy skills. For example, following the training led by Vic and Eva Thompson, the TeamRead volunteers are able to do more than simply read with a child. Third, this fantastic effort also helps to establish and sustain a positive learning environment for all students. Simply stated, our students look forward to your visits, and it is easy to notice the love you all have for others.more...
