15 – The Son is the image of the invisible God, the Firstborn over all creation.  16 – For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him.  17 – He is before all things, and in Him all things […]

Fathers and Other Men of Character

Series: -- Preacher: Date: June 18, 2017, Father's Day Scripture Reference: 1 Timothy 6:11-12

See the slides I received a Christmas gift last year that I enthusiastically use just about every day.  It’s the Show Me How page-a-day calendar.  It uses little graphics to teach me how to do just about anything.  For example, just over a month ago I learned how to fend off a mountain lion.  See […]

You Have to be Meek

Series: Preacher: Date: May 21, 2017 Scripture Reference: Matthew 5:5

As I inferred a couple sermons ago, my favorite comic book superhero is SUPERMAN. I wore my SUPERMAN tie today to prove it.  The reason I pick Superman as my favorite is not his super-strength or his invulnerability or his heat vision—but rather because he can fly! In fact, my favorite dreams are those in […]

Mothers and Other Women of Character

About six weeks ago several headlines featured mothers and their role in society.  The content of the articles focused on stay-at-home moms after a report in Australia labeled stay-at-home mothers as the “greatest untapped potential” for the workforce, which in turn caused large economic loss to the country.[i]  If you feel the way I do, […]

You should also know that I have challenged you to MEMORIZE these verses.  And to show you that it is […]
