February 1, 2022 – The Lord’s Supper

That morning when we observed the Lord’s Supper, I looked around and saw that Christ not only died for me, but for these — my brothers and sisters there gathered with me. At the Lord’s Table we are all on a level plane. We all come humbly before Him in need of His grace and love that He extends freely toward us. The Lord’s Supper brings us together like nothing else.

October 26, 2021 – Perspective

How we view life is called our perspective. It shapes our outlook, our decisions, and our actions. Whether we’re on the job, shopping, working in the yard, leading a Bible study, or watching a football game, our perspective interprets what we see and experience. Like a pair of glasses, our perspective can either distort or finely tune reality.

The Creator of the universe who made all things has also left His signs for us to follow. The Apostle Paul pointed out that the evidences of God’s presence are so numerous and obvious that everyone knows something about Him.

I thoroughly enjoyed all my fishing and hunting adventures with my good friend, Jeff Klippenes. Born and raised in the backwoods of Northern Minnesota, he has a wealth of outdoor experience that adds to the excitement of every outing. One of my favorite memories of Jeff begins with his decision to purchase a consignment boat from me.

We purchased eight Barbados Black Belly sheep that eventually grew to adult size. I learned a lot about life — and God — from the upkeep of these critters. You would think, in view of all the energy expended on their behalf, that these sheep would be grateful. Not so.

August 4, 2020 – Jesus, the Storm Calmer

That day when evening came, He said to His disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” Leaving the crowd behind, they took Him along, just as He was, in the boat. There were also other boats with Him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, don’t You care if we drown?”

July 28, 2020 – A Place of Rest

There’s something about strolling along a quiet beach that brings calm — an escape from the struggles and challenges of life. With a passion for excellence in any career comes the need to keep balanced as well. Christ regularly took time for solitude with His Heavenly Father. Throughout Scripture we see how God meets man in the “quiet places” of His creation.

Sadie is our current Labrador. As her trainer told us, “She is very self-assured and independent.” Basically, Sadie was bred to be a very highly-skilled, pheasant-hunting dog who points first before she flushes a bird. While being a good dog for hunting she thinks she should rule the house. She listens when she wants to listen.
