Matthew 13: 44 – 46  “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field ― and to get the treasure, too! “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a pearl merchant on the …

Hebrews 11: 1 –3, 8 – 16 ** If you have a few minutes later today, turn to Hebrews 11 and read the entire chapter.  One theme runs throughout the 40 verses of this chapter, and today’s reading is just a sampling from it.

Easter People

Isaiah 65:17-25 For over ten years I led a backpacking trip for High School kids to the Shenandoah National Park every summer, through our Conference Camping Program at Mt. Misery.  During those trips I got to work with many other leaders. We would typically go down with two groups (of up to ten) at a time, with two adult leaders …

The Doubters

John 20: 19 – 31 Sometimes nicknames can be fun.  In the music world, they can become someone’s only name – ‘the Edge’, or, ‘Future Man’ (or for a different generation, “Old Blue Eyes”). There are some great sports nick names too, especially in basketball:  the “Ice Man”, the “Mail Man”, “Dr. J” and many more (and these are all …

The Kingdom Surprise

There was an interesting article in the Courier Post, “Living” Section a couple years ago just before Easter.  It was actually a wire service story by Cathy Lynn Grossmann, a USA Today writer, entitled, “The Meaning of Easter”.  She apparently was reporting the results of some sort of survey she took among “believers, seekers, and skeptics.” I was kind of …

It is Finished

John 19: 28 – 30 Jesus knew that everything was now finished, and to fulfill the Scriptures he said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of sour wine was sitting there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put it on a hyssop branch, and held it up to his lips. When Jesus had tasted it, he said, “It is finished!” …

How Soon We Forget

MATTHEW 26:6-13 MARK 14:3-9 LUKE 7:36-50 JOHN 12:1-8 On first reading it, this account of the anointing of Jesus’ feet in John 12, you can almost feel sympathetic for Judas, don’t you think? ** Here’s a woman who takes something very expensive, probably the most (and only) expensive thing that she owned, and she wastes it – from a monetary …

All Eyes On Jesus

Mathew 21: 1 – 11 ** I am not a fisherman, by any stretch of the imagination.  But, maybe you can explain this for me. No matter how big a lake is, or no matter how much open space there is along a river bank, or the shoreline, why is it that sooner or later, everybody within a five mile …

When All Else Fails, You Still Are God

Habakkuk 1: 1 – 4; 2: 1 – 4 In August of 2005 many people around the world were made aware of one more sad example of the violence and evil that exists in our world. So typical an example, in fact, that it didn’t merit even a mention in many local newspapers.  It was, after all ‘just’ the death …

Something to Live For

Ecclesiastes 1: 1-2, 8- 14, 2: 17 – 23;  Luke 12: 13 – 21 We’ve all been in situations where someone has said to us: “I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news…which one do you want first?”  And we usually say – “Give me the bad news!”, because we generally want the last word to be something positive.  …
