Make the right choice

Joshua, God’s servant, the leader of God’s chosen people Israel who succeeded Moses, his mentor, was growing old and knowing the character and the attitudes of his people was compelled to call them together. (Joshua 24: 14-14)

Self-Control

When I’ve asked people what is the number one fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) they struggle with, I usually am told self-control. Everyone wishes they could take back that destructive thing they said or some action that caused another pain.

Faith and practice/pride and prejudice

As young people growing up in a small town we often visited one another’s churches. While there was broad religious teaching in these mixed groups it was never doctrinaire nor used as a tool to proselytize.

So much of what we read and preach about Easter has become too practiced or rote. It is not that we don’t believe what we say, or even that we don’t have emotional attachment to what we are saying, but rather that it has become a distant truth. We have connected it to a one time event in the chronicle of Christ, and we are “preaching to the choir,” those who already agree with us.

A Great Wall of Sin

My first calling was to a congregation who were very strong in their faith — and in their opinions. One such parishioner was a retired surgeon, of great personal wealth, who had been extremely well respected, and feared, in the health care community.

Men In The Fire present concert

Men In the Fire of Indiana presented a concert during the Lenten mission program at St. Peter Catholic Church on March 15 and provided music for Mass on March 16. Members of the group include Tony Bingham, Mike Woodson and Greg Rucker along with musicians Keith Strong and Phyllis Walker. The featured speaker was Rev. Chester Smith of the Bowman-Francis Ministry Project.

Power of the Resurrection

During the season of Lent leading up to the crucifixion of our Lord and Savior, it is important to realize the magnitude of what God has done through the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.
