After a really busy couple of months, it's always good to get away after the holidays, and whenever I have the opportunity, I'll usually go for it. This year, a couple of friends came up with the idea of going on a cruise over the New Year's holiday - the rationale being that none of...

There's something about a brand new year that causes us to want to start over with a clean slate. We review the past year, and we consider which areas of our lives need a fresh start. We call them "New Year's Resolutions." And if you're anything like me, you've made a million of them ov...

I think we all remember the camel in the snow several weeks back. His name was Einstein, and he was riding in a trailer that got stuck in the snow on Rt. 309 in that freak November snowstorm. He became a sensation overnight! Today I listened to a song written about him on YouTu...

I have a couple of friends with whom I usually plan some sort of pre-Christmas get-together. Sometimes it's been the Philly Pops Christmas concert, sometimes it's been Peddler's Village and the Cock 'n Bull Restaurant, other times it's been something else. This year, we started...

Last month, I mentioned the fact that a conversation had sparked my interest in renewing my lapsed subscription to Ancestry.com after a hiatus of a couple of years. I also mentiomed that I discovered I had received a message from a cousin I knew nothing about. After many phone...

I didn't mean to do it. I didn't intend to get another dog - at least not until Obie (my 13-year-old sheltie) goes to doggie heaven. But, of course, it isn't every day that you hear the sad story of five rescued little sheltie puppies who were living in a barn. And so on Monday even...

Election day is a crazy day at church, so last week I decided I would stay home and do one of my least favorite jobs - clean out closets & drawers. I usually try to reserve a day every year or two to purge myself of all the various and sundry items I've somehow accumulated...

Safety and prevention are always good things. Most of us try, as best we can, to protect ourselves and our loved ones against accidents, illness & other things that could potentially cause us harm. In fact, after much research, I recently decided to splurge and buy mys...

Pastor's State of the Church Report 2018 Brothers and Sisters in Christ, It never ceases to amaze me how quickly a year can go by. It's been a busy year and a fruitful year. It's been a year when God has indeed been active in our midst. So I'd like to take a few mom...

Life is interesting. And more often than not, it seems that we live it, whether by design or by accident, in "segments". Let me explain ... For several months now, Monday morning staff meetings have been peppered with the statement, "We'll get to that as soon as R.I.S.E. S...
