Out of This World

Out of This World (John 17: 6-19)   It’s a phenomenon I’ve observed, and I am sure there is no scientific basis to support it, but I’ve noticed that many of my friends in law enforcement pulling the pin and retiring to the country as far away as possible from where they put their time [...]

This is How we Know

This is How We Know (1 John 5: 1-6)   Because I hadn’t been practicing law very long and was trying to build up my practice, I used to hang around the courtroom during court even when I didn’t have any cases on the docket, hoping to pick up a case or two so I’d [...]

Learning to Love

Learning to Love (1 John 4: 7-21)   In case you haven’t noticed, I enjoy having baby Kai in our congregation on Sunday mornings and I really appreciate her mother for bringing her to worship with us, and worship she does.  I really do think Kai gets a lot out of our services.  Although she [...]

Action Heros

Action Heroes (1 John 3: 16-24)   Faster than a speeding bullet.  More powerful than a locomotive.  Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.  Yeah, I remember as a kid in the 50s and 60s being glued to our black and white television, being totally engrossed in the adventures of Superman.  Mild mannered [...]

To Protect & Serve

CSI Jerusalem

  CSI Jerusalem   Our earthly death is not the end, there is a future life, a future no one can logically dispute.   CSI Jerusalem (John 20: 1-18)   The followers of Jesus Christ, the self-professed Messiah, had just witnessed his death.  It was not a peaceful death where Jesus passed quietly in his [...]

A Name Above All Names

A Name Above All Names (Philippians 2: 5-11)   By this time in the Apostle Paul’s ministry, he finds himself imprisoned in Rome but that doesn’t get him down.  In fact, he’s very upbeat as he writes his friends and supporters in Philippi thanking them for their aid and support.  He summons them to rejoice [...]

Your Order Has Shipped

(Jeremiah 31: 31-34) Your Order Has Shipped   I love ordering from Amazon.  It’s so easy.  You go online, find what you want, and place your order.  Then you wait for the confirmation message and soon after that you get the message that says: ‘Your Order Has Shipped” along with the estimated date of delivery.  [...]
