Words of Worship

Son of God and Son of Man

People spend a lot of time, money and effort to get a title after their name. Masters, doctorates and other post-graduate programs are in high demand. The appeal is understandable. Titles such as Doctor, Professor and a host of others provide opportunities to better ourselves and our circumstances. They also demonstrate to others that the person has some extra knowledge and training that can benefit them or their child. There was one who had the highest of all titles already at his birth. The Bible describes it this way: “The holy one to be born will be called the Son …continue reading

On Veterans Day we remember the sacrifices and service of all our men and women who have ever served in the military.

Summer Slipping By

It’s August.  How did that happen? Driving home from church with my wife on Sunday morning, I made the observation that it was August 4, and then I said, “When did that happen?” Has the summer flown by for you too?  I know I did a lot of stuff in July, but somehow it doesn’t even seem like the 4th has passed yet!  But it has.  It most certainly has. The Gospel reading at many churches this past Sunday was Luke 12:13-21, the parable of the rich fool.  He had a fortunate harvest, and decided to horde it all for …continue reading

This …continue reading
