  Busy, So what! - Newsletter Article for April 2009

I know as you read this, you are a busy, busy person, with many places to go and things to do.

But just for a moment, think about these words, one at a time, and give each of them time to sink in;

Peace..., Joy....., Love... Jesus...., Salvation...., Heaven....

Ok, now that you read them in 1 second, really go back and read them again, but one at a time. Close your eyes and give each word time to sink in.

What images do these words bring to your mind as you just stop for a moment and experience them?

Now, that you see the truth, that it only takes a moment to refocus on eternal life, doesn't the present seem less pressing, less urgent than it did just a few moments ago?

So, as you go about your day, racing from one activity to another, remember to pause; The peace of Christ is only a moment away!

  Anger Does! - UCOA message for March 18th, 2009

I have seen what anger does. I have felt what anger does. Sometimes anger is justified, and sometimes it is not. What you do with anger, and what I do with anger is at least as important as whether it is justified. I know I have made some of you here angry in the past, either by my actions or my words. You might not admit it now, but I know it is true. I also know that you kept your anger under control, either because you understood that my error was unintentional, or perhaps because you have a soft spot for this foolish old man I sometimes am. Whatever the reason, I appreciate it. I was never good at fighting, I once picked a fight with a boxer, that did not end well. So why do I tell you this tale, well, only because I want to remind you that while it might be true that no one in this world can understand you, or the anger you have bound up inside you, there is someone who does understand you and every detail of your being. He wants only to be your friend, to encourage you and to give you His peace. I know many of you know who I am talking about, but if you want to know more, come talk to me when you are ready.

Some of the details of my life, as I allow Christ to live out His life through me.
