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...

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...

Sharing Habakkuk's Cry in a World with Church Shootings

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Who could possibly have imagined as we were pressing through Habakkuk 1 on Sunday morning, a precious church in Sutherland Springs, TX, was in the throes of unimaginable horror? Yet one more man of desperation was overcome by violent impulse. Yet one more tragic event and painful reminder of how...

Of Kingdoms and Cities

Posted by Tim McConnell on

I hope you were able to enjoy worship this past Sunday. We had ten different voices leading us in celebrating the five main points of the Reformation: Scripture, Grace, Faith, Christ and the Glory of God. It was so heartening to see our staff, along with interns and ministry candidates...

Reformation Sunday: 500th Anniversary of the Reformation

Posted by Tim McConnell on

This Sunday we recognize the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg to raise questions about the teaching of the church in his time and look to the Bible for the answers. He didn’t...

Las Vegas. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria damaging Houston, Miami, Puerto Rico, Barbuda, Dominican Republic and others. Wildfires in L.A. and now Santa Rosa. What am I missing? Bombings in Somalia and continued warfare and violence in Afghanistan and Iraq. Ethnic cleansing in Burma forcing a...
