Ups and Downs

Posted by Tim McConnell on

In 2006, Washington, D.C., pastor Mark Batterson published a book titled In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day. I thought at the time, "What a ridiculous title!" Then I learned it was straight out of the Bible. In the middle of a list describing the talents and exploits of David’s mighty...

Start Somewhere

Posted by Tim McConnell on

What will you do with 2018? It feels like a big question to me. Each year is a gift, each day an added blessing. How will I use the time God gives me? It can feel difficult finding the motivation to get going in a new year. The pressure of the opportunities before us couple with the malaise of...

Ready or Not, It's 2018!

Posted by Tom Pipkin on

It’s a new year with new opportunities, new challenges and a new number to remember to write on our correspondence and in our checkbooks. 2018. It’s here, ready … or not. I don’t know about you, but I’m still getting used to the idea of it being twenty-anything...

A Prayer for Light at Christmas

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer spent two Christmases imprisoned for his resistance to the Nazi regime. He had very little contact with his family and few resources to keep himself busy. But he did have a book of prayers and hymns from the great 17th century German hymn-writer, Paul Gerhardt. On...

Even a Scrooge Can Change

Posted by Tim McConnell on

I hardly pass a Christmas season without opening Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. It’s too bad we still talk about Ebenezer Scrooge as a miserly grump. I wish we remembered him as the man he came to be. Ebenezer is visited by three ‘spirits’ in the story...

No Brighter Hope

Posted by Tim McConnell on

It’s cold, but there is no snow. Pikes Peak is brown. That doesn’t work for me! If it is going to be cold, let’s have some snow. What we've got now beats cold with rain, but not by much. Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! I’m dreaming of a white Christmas. Jim...

Is your calendar filling up? Christmastime is here. It is so much fun. At home our lights are on the house and decorations are starting to come out of the boxes. The boys helped me set up the Nativity scene. Plans to get a tree are underway. At church our decorating elves are busy setting up...

I Will Rejoice

Posted by Jennifer Holz on

This week we finish our sermon series in Habakkuk, and this week we give thanks around our tables for God’s goodness in our lives. It’s fitting that our final word from the prophet (3:18), is “Yet I will rejoice in the LORD.” The “yet” indicates that joy may...

Synthetic Hope

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Two weeks ago we started the series on Habakkuk and I asked, “Where do you hang your hearts? Hang your hearts on something that will hold.” I laughed the other day when I got a note from a friend in the church who said, “Pastor Tim, my hearing aids weren’t working well. I...
