Working the Fields
Working the Fields Matthew 9:35-10:7 [1] I’ve never worked in a field of corn or beans. I grew up in sorghum  and cotton country. So I don’t know what it’s
like to work at de-tasseling a corn field or weeding a bean field. I have,
however, had my share of m...

Surrounded by Love
Surrounded by Love Psalm 8; Matthew 28:20 [1] One of the blessings of information technology is that the world has
become a much smaller place. We can learn about what is going on in around the

One and the Same Spirit
One and the Same Spirit 1 Corinthians 12:3-13 [1] When you take a good look at the many different ways in which Christians

culture of ours, some people pray as a form of sanctified
wish-fulfillment.  They think they can

Knowing His Voice
Knowing His Voice John 10:1-10 [1] It shouldn’t come as a surprise to you for me to say that prayer is a
vital part of the Christian life. A brief glance at any one of our worship
bulletins reveals the importance of prayer. I teach our confirmation students...

Burning Hearts
Burning Hearts Luke 24:13-35 [1] We Presbyterians love to do things “decently and in order.” He have
policies for doing things “rightly” and some of us even believe that our
churches will thrive if we just follow the right procedures. And so we set
about pl...

We are Witnesses
We are Witnesses Acts 2:22-32 [1] We Presbyterians get pretty nervous around words like “witness.” It
reminds us of people who go door-to-door, rather too confidently professing
their own faith and assuming those they are “visiting” are spiritually “lost.”

I Have Seen The Lord
I Have Seen the Lord John 20:1-18 [1] One
of the key principles of our faith is that we “live by faith and not by sight.”
None of us has ever seen Jesus in person. None of us has seen anyone who has
