Hitting the Pause Button - Hurricane Irene

Well, Hurricane Irene is making her way up the coast to our neck of the woods. And, as she appears to be in no hurry, she will likely stay around for a while. In anticipation of power difficulties and communication interruptions, we are going to hold off on any new posts at this point until Thursday, 9/1. Don’t forget, in the meantime, that we have a Members Meeting on Tuesday, 8/30 at 7 ...

We have had the wonderful experience of discovering Christ, grace, and the gospel within its pages week in and week out. It brings to glorious light some of what Christ must have meant when he said, “everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the ...

The Cup of God's Wrath: Mark 14:32-41

Editor’s Note: This year in Invest, the men were required to teach through a passage of Scripture and lead a Men’s devotion from Godly Man’s Picture. I will be posting some of the notes from these times. They will vary in formatting, purpose, and depth. But they all should bring encouragement toward our walks with the Lord.

I Shall Not Be Shaken

I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. - Psalm 16:8 I’ve often thought of stability as solid ground under my feet and a roof over my head held up by four well-constructed walls. After all, structures such as our houses and our work places have kept us safe from rain, hail, snow, cold, and heat. We even lock ourselves inside these ...

The Best Story of All

During the summer I finished reading a compilation of great American short stories that I picked up at Barnes & Noble. I’d started reading it last summer, to quell any envy you might feel about my endless free time. It is quite an adventure to dive so rapidly into the pools of thought of all these different writers who are attempting to develop one idea in a few pages of narrative. ...

Captain Destiny Lives

  When I was a child I had an active imagination. I used to run from the dining room to the game room at full speed and dive into the air to land in a well-loved couch. I would yell, “It’s Patric Pittsburgh in living color!” as I would soar through the air. I spent many hours on Saturday mornings watching cartoons on that sofa. I suppose the cartoon that most inspired ...

The All-Important Perimeter

“A center without a circumference is just a dot, nothing more. It is the circumference that marks the boundary of the circle. To eliminate the boundary is to eliminate the circle itself. The circle of faith cannot identify its center without recognizing its perimeter.” - Thomas C. Oden, The Rebirth of Orthodoxy: Signs of New Life in Christianity (HarperOne, 2002), p. 131 It is ...

Living With Question Marks

There are many kinds of questions we deal with in the day to day stuff of our lives: questions about the future, questions about trials, questions about what God is doing in our lives. Sometimes we can find ourselves straining under the weight of these questions. If you sometimes find yourself there, I can relate. Check out these verses from Psalm 139: 16-18: “Your eyes saw my unformed ...
