  • This summer my church is doing a sermon series on the beatitudes, the “blessed ares” that Jesus taught his disciples.

    He said things like, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” and “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”

    “Blessed” means happy, and so to say happy are the poor, happy are the meek, happy are those who are persecuted because of righteousness – well, it doesn’t make sense.

    Or does it?

  • Many of us enjoy the wonderful taste of food cooked on a grill, but cleaning the grill—not so much. Regular grill cleaning is important to help extend the life of your grill and for food safety purposes. Plus, it makes your food taste better.

    The easiest way to remember to clean your grill is to do so immediately after using it. This way, you don’t forget about it, and you are not faced with a greasy, caked-on mess the next time you go to grill.

  • Several weeks ago, my pastor told a story that had people whispering, “Whoa.”

    It happened years ago when a young, pregnant woman came to our church and gave her life to Jesus.

    The baby had problems developing and had to undergo an extensive delicate surgery while still in the womb.

    Our whole church was praying and praying as this miracle unfolded in front of us.

    The baby girl was born prematurely with all kinds of physical problems and went through several more surgeries and was in the hospital for months.

  • Most people have a funny story or two about their blunders. These events are entertaining yet far between. They were humorous anecdotes to share with friends or family gatherings.

    Now imagine if you will a life plagued by unintentional physical comedy, pratfalls, verbal mishaps and the like. This is my life. It’s fortunate that I have a sense of humor. If I didn’t I would be dead of embarrassment.
