Transforming Empty

(Blog Manager’s Note: this is part of a Lenten series being offered by the pastors of CFC) Words carry meaning. They carry concepts. They communicate thoughts and often capture emotion. Words matter, even when the word is “empty.” From the beginning of the Bible, the concept of empty is tied to a problem that God intends to fix. Consider Genesis 1:2:  ...

Into Your hands

(Blog Manager’s Note: this is part of a Lenten series being offered by the pastors of CFC) Confident Final Words Just before Jesus died, he called out to his Father saying, “Into your hands I commit my spirit,” (Luke 23:46).  These last words signify a confidence that upon his last breath he would be in the presence of his Father.  But what about us?  Could we ...

You know – you’re in charge of this or that (like a blog post!) and you’re worried that it’s not going to be as effective as it could be because of course, you always mess things up and this is serious because it’s God’s work and if you mess it up people will give you that look like “Here’s a trophy for ...

Impossible to Fall...

A Sesame Scare I was reminded recently of a trip our family made to Sesame Place some twenty-five years ago. Our oldest daughter was four and we were taking her and our niece for a day of fun in a theme park geared entirely toward children. As a part of our ‘experience’ I decided to take the girls to the climbing net. For those of you who have never been to Sesame Place, this is a ...

Behold Your Son

(Blog Manager’s Note: this is part of a Lenten series being offered by the pastors of CFC) A Tragic Moment Recently we have grieved with a dear family over the loss of their son.   Tragedies like this remind us that we live in a world that is not as it should be.

Helping Relationships part 2

(part 1 appeared on March 15) Week In, Week Out Ministry In any given week, people have problems and will seek out either advice that will be either good or bad. People will pass that onto others. That advice could be life-giving medicine to the body of Christ, or corrupt the body like deadly cancer. How do we ensure the multiplication of healthy life-giving advice? In addition, we are called ...

Of Beatles and Burdens

50! I’ve had two events happen recently, seemingly unrelated, that got me to thinking.  I just turned 50 (relatively important), and I rediscovered the Beatles album Abbey Road (relatively unimportant).  Well, I didn’t ‘rediscover’ it like it was lost to history, but now that I can convert my vinyl records to digital, I can listen to it for the first time in ...
