How to Stay in the Running

Series: Preacher: Date: April 10, 2016 Scripture Reference: Hebrews 12

As most of you know I’m a runner and have been one for about 20 years. I don’t run as fast or as far as I used to but when my schedule permits I still get in about 20 miles a week. Over the years I have run in half a dozen races. I’ve never […]

Faith Is….

Pilgrims Should Make Progress

Series: Preacher: Date: March 13, 2016 Scripture Reference: Hebrews 5:11 - 6:20

One of the most popular brands of TV commercials out there these days advertises Geico insurance—and in my opinion their commercials are usually very entertaining.

A Rested Development

Series: Preacher: Date: February 28, 2016 Scripture Reference: Hebrews 4:1-16

This week I discovered a very “tiring” fact.  I learned that people sleep much less in 2016 than they did in 1966—which you should know is the year Redland was founded.  In fact, every night we sleep an hour and a half less than people did back then. To put it more clearly: In the […]
