Listening to the Silence

I haven't updated my blog on here for awhile. Did anyone notice? It's not that I've been lazy or that I had nothing to say.  I was being still and trying to listen for God in the silence.

I've been struggling with working a fulltime job and then trying to find or sometimes - make the time for handling what i need to do as your Pastor.  I work fulltime as the Sales and Marketing Manager for an assisted living community in Findlay.

Are You Running From The Lord?

When I was younger I played just about every sport there was. I enjoyed football, basketball and baseball and even hit the tennis ball around and later got hooked on golf.  I was active and running was a big part of my athletic years.

However; as I got older I lost the interest to run and be as active as I was in my younger days. Now, the only running you'll see me do is from the living room to the refrigerator during TV Timeouts to get something to eat o...

Why Does God Take The Good One's?

I had a friend ask me recently, "Why does God take the good ones?" in reference to the death of a very good friend who was not only a very good person but an excellent Christian.

This is a question that we have been asking for a very long time. It doesn’t seem “fair” that good people suffer illnesses and sometimes an early death while those that live for themselves & have no desire to know Christ appear to live lives to be jealous o...

This weekend we will be discussing David who is one of the best known figures in the bible. He was chosen by God to lead his people and he was very much a follower of God!

Of course, we all know the story of David and Goliath and how the small teenage shepherd boy took down the larger-than-life Philistine giant. In fact; the bible calls David "a man after God's own heart and he chronicled much of the book of Psalms.

Because of his victory over Goliath, Davi...

We are COMMUNITY Bible Church

I love the idea of community.

We once had a discussion about the word "Community" at one of our Life Group meetings at my old church. We talked about how the church itself is a community and yet the church needs to reach to other communities - and lots of them!

Every time we discussed it, we would talk about something different. It also applied to everything that we did. When we played games together, we were building community. When we ate together, we were...

My Loan is Forgiven - For now

I was having a discussion on the phone with a couple of my kids this past week and they were excited because the federal government has made the decision that impacts a lot of young people. They were both thrilled that the federal government has given them some temporary forgiveness on their student loans because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

My son also said that he received word from his mortgage provider that they too were giving them a couple of "free months" bec...

Post-Easter Thoughts

Now that we have completed the Easter Holiday we're probably reflecting on how quiet things were this year. Many of us are used to gathering with our families and enjoying some time together that we don't get at any other time of the year.

Instead; it was an Easter of isolation and a lot of silence and time to look inside ourselves. Maybe you are like me and you actually enjoyed this quiet time? It was a chance to spend some time in silence, willing to listen t...

Come To Me

Perhaps today you are feeling tired and worn out. You’ve juggled housework, office work, home-schooled kids, business, or just all that is happening around the world. Each day brings a load of demands in our lives. When we try to carry everything on our own, we become fatigued and stressed out.

In Matthew 11:29 (NLT), Jesus invites us to come to Him with all of our cares and concerns, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry hea...

Covid-19 and Resurrection Sunday

While none of us are happy about becoming a prisoner in our own home, this Covid-19 pandemic has definitely given a lot of us a new perspective on life hasn't it? Just 3 weeks ago we were all cruising through life as usual with no real fear of what was happening over in China, Italy and other far corners of the world.

Then, in what seemed like a matter of minutes, Americans were left scrambling for bottled water, Kleenex and toilet paper! Stores have closed and s...
