  • Sin separates us from God; the Gospel brings ‘good news’

    Vince Lombardi famously said, “Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.” Striking comment. But I wish to take Mr. Lombardi’s comment in a different direction; the gospel isn’t everything; it’s the only thing. What do I mean by that? Everything begins and ends with the gospel of Jesus Christ. So what is the “gospel?” The gospel is translated “good news.”

  • Keep gardeners in mind this Christmas

    Well, we turned back time. I don’t mind being one hour younger. I just don’t like to drive home in the dark, right after work.

    The sunrises are nice though, as long as it doesn’t blind you. There is a good side to everything, if we look hard enough. Remember, whenever there is darkness, we just have to wait for the light. Let’s talk Christmas.
