Pastor's Reflection - 4/20/17

I hope you had a wonderful Easter celebration this year! As usual, I went after church to my sister Carol's home in Hockessin, Delaware. It's always good to get together with family and friends to celebrate holidays, isn't it? And family traditions, as simple as they are, are also a ble...

We all seem to be a bit suspicious about a particular word. The word is "evangelism." We automatically think of pushy Christians making a nuisance of themselves. It's even happened to me a couple of times - once on the Boardwalk in Ocean City NJ, and once when I was staying overnight in M...

I have a wonderful person who cleans the parsonage every four weeks. She's very meticulous, very trustworthy, and besides that, she's very personable! And us - of course I'm perfectly capable of vacuuming, sweeping, and cleaning the floors and bathrooms, but in addition to the fact that s...

Sometimes you get forced to make decisions on the spur of the moment, and so suppose it helps to have a quick and definitive way to do that because often, when a problem presents itself, it's hard to have a clear head. My daughter had to make a trip to New York t...

If you're like me, there are probably a number of things you hope and pray for every day - things that you really want for someone else. Maybe you've prayed and prayed for years for a family member to finally overcome an addiction. Maybe you've hoped and prayed for a child to become motiv...

Pastor's Reflection - 3/9/17

In last Sunday's children's sermon, I mentioned how much I depend on my watch. I wear it every single day and if I ever forget to put it on in the morning (or, heaven forbid, misplace it), I know it immediately and I have to stop everything and go find it. Somehow or another...

We sang a song in worship at 8 am & 10:30 last Sunday and it's one of my favorites. "My life flows on in endless song above earth's lamentation … Since love is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?" Because of the cyclical nature of the chu...

This past weekend was so nice - a warm, sunny respite well before the end of winter. Even those of us who love the snow and cold weather (and I suppose there must be one or two of us …) welcome the news of an entire weekend filled with sun and temperatures in the upper 60's...

There are a couple of things I absolutely hate to buy. One of them is cars and the other one is mattresses. Granted, I've had a couple of awful experiences with salespeople of both of those items in the past, but the sad thing is that I had developed the very thing I tend to ...

By the time you're reading this, it is at least Thursday afternoon and I'm hoping that by now I'm on my way home from the hospital or at least preparing to be discharged following same-day spinal surgery for herniated discs and a decompression of a couple of lumber vertebr...
