As some of you know, I spent last week in the Orlando area, and regardless of anything else that you do when you spend a week in central Florida, you simply HAVE to visit Walt Disney World, which we did twice. I happened to have some very old Walt Disney World ...

It was an interesting holiday season this year. Somehow I managed to have a wonderful Christmas despite being somewhat under the weather for a couple of weeks. Actually, if I want to be truthful, it was a little more than just "under the weather". The week b...

As though I had nothing better to do during the last couple of weeks before Christmas! It was the middle of last week when I received a sudden pop-up notification that I was out of storage on my iPhone. What??!! Well, lo and behold - almost 3 GB's in old emails?! How is th...

I'm not sure why it took me by surprise, but it did. It happened almost as soon as Thanksgiving dinner was cleaned up. The very next evening … yes, you guessed it. Homes covered in Christmas lights. Santas and reindeer decorating lawns. Christmas music on the radio non-...

I was at a shopping mall a couple of weeks ago and it took me totally by surprise to see Christmas decorations already in the works - Santa's winter wonderland was almost complete, with snow, a few reindeer and even a huge red chair ready for Santa. Of course, I'm used to see...

I am writing this on Tuesday - it is election day. As of this moment, none of us know exactly how the election will turn out. But the reality is that, no matter how it turns out (and, of course, by the time you will be reading this, we will know), God is still in control. I think all ...

It never ends with kids, does it? The things they need you to help them with just get crazier and crazier as the years go on. Which is exactly how I found myself at a junkyard (yes, a junkyard) in South Philadelphia last week. It was a brand new experience for me. I had no idea what a j...

There WAS (emphasis on the past tense) a bee problem in the church office this past week and what we discovered was that there were two large hives near the roof in the courtyard. For whatever reason, these bees just loved to visit me and both of our administrative assistants....

Pastor's Report to Charge Conference 2016 This year, I again give thanks to God for the joy and privilege of serving as Lead Pastor at St. John's, along with our talented and devoted staff, leaders, and other very generous and committed servants who make up our church family...

Pastor's Reflection 10/6/16

It's happened a few times before, but this time was worse because there were a grand total of TWELVE eyes staring at me! It happened around 10 pm the other night. As usual, I opened the back door to let the two dogs out right before bedtime. Often, I'll go out too (in good ...
