Psalms for the Season

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
It’s Advent and the beginning of a new Christian Calendar Year.  It’s a time for preparing, expecting, and awaiting the birth of Jesus; an awesome, spine tingling, mysterious, and momentous celebration.  And yet, it is a time whose meaning is often diminished by the noise of Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and commercialism; football, shopping, and Christmas trees.   But we in the Christian Church family faithfully remember the real “reason for the season.”  Whether this is the actual date and time for Jesus’ birth or not is immaterial.  It’s the fact that we intentionally pause to remember and honor that birth—a special...

Success

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
I like the post by Dick Inns in Daily Encounter entitled "Success".  It speaks to us, especially today: "Success is the ability to discover God's goal and purpose for your life and then, with God's help, employ all of your powers to achieve that goal." I'm sure that this is the way the Apostle Paul lived his life after he committed it to Jesus Christ and became one of the most effective early Christian leaders. For you and me to succeed in God's eyes we don't have to be an Apostle Paul or anybody else. We only need to discover God's...

Do We Need Church?

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Do we need church?   I have read how people use Web MD or Medline Plus to diagnose their ailments or the ailments of loved ones before seeking the advice of a licensed doctor.  My Internist confirms the same.  When I sold pharmaceuticals for Johnson & Johnson there were no advertisements on radio or TV concerning prescription drugs, now days, every other advertisement is about prescription drugs.  Our society has become a society of information.  Many people don’t use standard medical treatments offered by doctors anymore.  There is a lack of trust, as well as an abundance of information whereby we...

'What Can You Do For Me'

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Today’s culture is all about “What can you do for me”. Many look at the church as an antiquated monstrosity of the past and totally un-needed for today.  Yet many researchers have offered proof that if we work on our relationship with our Creator  there are many health benefits, along with a peace that the world can never give us. The church offers us the place as well as the tools to develop our relationship with our creator as together we work, study, fellowship and enjoy the Holy Sacraments that remind us of God’s awesome love and forgiveness and brings us...

Christian Response to Our World

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
 The times we are living in are very serious.  We observe the rise of militant Islamist crucifying Christians and beheading innocent people in the name of their Allah.  We fear a pandemic of Ebola.  We experience our retirement income shrink and the price of everything continue to rise.   We are to be IN the world but not OF the world. Jesus said told His disciples, “If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would have loved its own. But because you do not belong to the world - on...

Living as Pentecost Christians

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
As I was driving down Interstate 35 the other day I noticed a little girl holding her hand out of the open window of a car as it was driving down the road.  She kept turning her hand as if to feel the breeze. Perhaps she was experiencing something powerful, invisible, and beautiful. Isn’t this like the power of the Holy Spirit, Spirit, God’s breath at Pentecost?  That breath is powerful yet invisible.    This breath of new life that Jesus promised his disciples was his parting gift to his disciples.  But what does that mean to us today?  Since the...

Lent Blog

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
Description: <a href=
- Sarah Parsons wrote the following in her book, “A Clearing Season: Reflections for Lent”:   “Lent serves as our annual invitation to come closer to God. It provides a time to look at our lives and ourselves, not so we may criticize ourselves more harshly but so we can identify the obstructions that keep us from God.   What keeps us from feeling the presence of the divine in our every day? How do we hide from God, and why?   Lent gives us a chance to look at such obstructions and to move them gently away so that we can...

Welcome to the First Christian Church Web Site

Posted by on in Pastor's Blog
First of all I welcome you to our new Web site.  You have logged on to this site because you are looking for something, just as everyone is looking for something, meaning to life. We are all on a journey to connect with our Creator God and to find meaning for our lives.  I can’t tell you the number of people who tell me they do not know what they are here on earth to do.  They surmise that God must have something for them to do because they are still on the green side of the grass, but they honestly...
