If I look to the west when the sun is rising I miss the beauty of a new day. If I look to the east at sunset I will miss the grandeur that is often there as the sun is setting. So often how I see life depends on where I am looking. We haveContinue reading “It Depends on Where You Look”
Am sitting here watching a tennis match at the French Open, but it was played hours earlier and I already know the results. It’s a mixed bag of emotions. I know that Madison Keys (the American) loses the match so I am disappointed. On the other hand there is no stress as I watch. IContinue reading “Knowing the End Results”
Remembering is an acquired skill, or I should say remembering the right things is an acquired skill. All too often we fail in the trap of remembering the wrong things. Tomorrow our nation will remember those who gave the last full measure of their devotion to their country. These are men and women who gaveContinue reading “Remembering”
I am not sure of who the readers of this blog are, but if you attend the Wednesday night service at Gainesville UMC you will get something similar to what you are reading here. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say there there is too much stone throwing in our society today. I amContinue reading “Too Much Stone Throwing”
You ever get tired? I do, and often it’s my own fault for not getting enough sleep. Sometimes it’s because I stay up too late, other times it’s because I allow the worries of the day to take over and rob me of sleep. Jesus told His disciples in the “Sermon on the Mount;” 25Continue reading “It’s Not Worth It”
It’s been a long time since I last posted a blog. An easy excuse would be that I got busy, but the reality is something different. I lost sight of the essentials. My calling (job) is to communicate the gospel. I do that through sermons on Sundays and now Wednesdays again. I do that byContinue reading “Losing Sight of the Essentials”
As we approach a second Easter that will be different from the ones that we had become accustomed to here at Gainesville Church. Last year we were totally virtual. We used music that was pre-recorded and a sermon that was pre-recorded. Again we will have a Good Friday service that is on-line but this yearContinue reading
I read a lot of news articles. And as you might imagine, during this pandemic year, a lot of them have been about the virus and the vaccines that have been developed. Today it brought me back to the (although I never really left) squared circle (boxing ring) of the never ending fight between scienceContinue reading “Science vs Christianity and God”
Every day in the news I read another article, that in one way or another, asks this question. What will life look like when we return to the the “new normal?” I can assure you that we here at Gainesville Church are asking the same question. What will things be like when we return toContinue reading “What Will It Look Like?”
I took some time off last week, and I forced myself not to do any work. Did answer one text from one of the Church staff. This person had three question and I answered them; yes, no, yes. I really was trying not to engage in work. We all need time away and in today’sContinue reading “On Vaca”
