It's not every year that both Ash Wednesday and Valentine's Day fall on the same day! We hope you will join us tonight for worship as we begin the season of Lent. We also wish you a very happy Valentine's Day. I'd like to share a short poem I found online - may it remind us of what tru...

There is a lesson I wish I would learn, and it has to do with not getting bogged down in details. Even though I should have learned this lesson long ago, I still tend to erroneously believe that if I can just plan ahead, get everything organized, and, of course, think of every possible "kink" that...

I had to laugh (and I hope you enjoyed it too!) when I received the Conference e-news this week. As I scrolled through the articles, the current sign being displayed at First United Methodist Church in Collingswood, NJ popped up! Most of you already know that I'm not exactly a fo...

When I was young, I used to roll my eyes and chuckle whenever my parents, my grandparents, or other adults would start reminiscing about life in "the good ole days." They'd start talking the fact that a loaf of bread used to cost 5 cents, or that the right way to make coffee is with a pe...

I was so surprised a couple of weeks ago. I was watching Good Morning America and their special guest for the morning was a young Christian gospel artist named Tasha Cobbs. She was preparing to sing one of her newer songs, it was called "Getting Ready." The amazing and surprising thin...

It was a rather strange ending of 2017 and beginning of 2018 this year. I had planned to be basking in the sun and the 80+ degree WARMTH on a Caribbean cruise with two of my friends over the New Year's holiday. However, at the very last minute, despite the fact that I had already checke...

When I'm on vacation, I'll often search to see which church I might want to visit for worship. Many of you know that I normally go to a friend's timeshare every year in Las Vegas - and I know that sounds strange, but the resort has the best lazy river in the world - it just so happens to...

Thanks to the Bible study lesson I've been preparing this week, I've been thinking a lot about the difference between joy and happiness. We talk about the Christmas season being a season of JOY, but what does that mean? Does it mean we should be spending the next several weeks smili...

In case you aren't aware of it, I am one of the least crafty persons on the face of the earth. It's embarrassing to admit that, but it's true. So when I was faced with helping my granddaughter, Lailah, make a gingerbread house a couple of weeks ago, it sounded like a dauntin...

I watched with great interest the movie "Wonder" over this past weekend. Actually, we went at the suggestion of my 12-year-old grandson, Jalen, who said, "Oh! We're reading that book in school, Mom-mom - let's go see the movie'!" I asked, "Well, what's it about?" "It's about a boy wit...
