By Pastor Den Slattery Den98@juno.com This Sunday we will be celebrating Veterans Day on November 10 at the Grass Lake United Methodist Church at 10:00 am. Our country has been celebrating Veterans Day since the end of WWI. Back then it was called Armistice Day. The name was changed to Veterans Day by an act of Congress in 1954. On Veterans Day we remember the sacrifices and service of all our men and women who have ever served in the military. Some people seem to think that Veterans Day and Memorial Day are the same thing, but they aren’t. On …continue reading
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
It’s 11:03 on Monday as I begin typing this message. I like to have them done by 9:00 Monday morning, so as you can tell, I’m running a bit behind today. I imagine you’ve had days that have begun similarly to mine. Maybe you’ve gotten to the office and had some voicemails that have been sitting on the machine for a couple days, and you need to respond to them. Perhaps you’ve had appointments fill up your calendar and you get lost in the busyness of the tasks at hand, your normal activities take a backseat to the pressing. This …continue reading

Quick, let’s play a game of name that verse: “God helps those who help themselves.” Well that’s easy, right? That’s in…G, J, L, um…the Old…no, wait, New…um… Well, the answer is that commonly heard phrase is nowhere to be found in the Bible. The common perception is that the Bible is a how-to book, or a book of great principles, useful sayings, truisms for helping you live life as well as you can. Perhaps we see the Bible as a self- help book. Often we look to the Bible for principles to help engage in activities as varied as starting …continue reading
