As the summer draws to a close, most of us who are engaged in the workplace will return to a world of pinging email alerts and buzzing cellphones and periodic checks of social media.

While describing in symbolic terms the great cosmic battle between God and evil, its original purpose was to encourage Christians to be faithful in difficult times. Thus it continues to have relevance to all who seek to follow Christ today — regardless […]

Like it or not, those of you with school-age children are going to have to come back to town. You may be able to sneak away for a few more weekends before summer gets away from us (let’s face it — around here summer lasts almost until December) but it’s time to get back into […]

In Texas if you are killed while riding a motorcycle (or donor cycle, as EMT’s call them) your family can have a memorial in your honor erected at the site of your crash. It will cost them $350 and will include a large cross. The cross will be part of the display, regardless of your […]

1 Timothy 4:12 says, “Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” This verse came to mind during our day of service at the Norcross Co-Op.  I had the opportunity to work in the clothes closet helping to distribute clothing to […]

This is one of the hardest monthly posts I have had to write. Mostly because this will be my last one as the interim youth minister for this congregation. I knew going into this that it more than likely would be temporary; in fact, that is implied in the job title. Throughout these past months, […]

This year I had the privilege of attending my fourth Passport Kids Camp with our Parkway Kids.  It’s hard to believe that the children who attended for the first time the same year that I did have now attended the kid’s camp for the last time.  I cherish the bonds that we formed and the […]
