    Where do we start our journey?  The only place we can—“In the beginning…God.”

    Forgive – easy word to say – not so easy to do. The word means literally to – let it go. Too often when we do – we pick it up again. Triggers – reminders of why we needed to forgive in the first place.

    We've just come through Halloween season – a shared experience of delighting in costuming and generous gift giving (how cool is it that for this one night we all support the door to door traveling circus of young people and delight in welcoming them with a sweet treat!?).

  • When Words Become Action

    I love history! I love reading about people, and places, trying to imagine what life would have been like, felt like, to live during those times. Recently, my wife and I watched a PBS series on the wives of Henry the VIII. What a vastly different world we live in today. In that time what the King wanted trumped all other principles. Henry, it seems wanted a son, and since his wife was unable to bear him one, he wanted a new wife. By today’s standards, we wouldn’t give that much thought, but there was a bigger issue. Henry belonged to the Catholic Church, and they weren’t big on divorce. So Henry did the unthinkable, he broke from the church, and created his own.

    On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther, a German monk of the Augustinian Order posted 95 topics for debate about religious issues of the day, particularly the sale of indulgences in the nearby communities.

    They say you can take the boy out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy; I would say “they” are right. Having grown up in rural south-central Kansas, this country boy spent the last twenty years in Seattle, Washington. Who the heck am I? Well, let me properly introduce myself. My name is Dr. Howard Law, and I am the new pastor for Zion Countryside Gladstone an

    To the great frustration of the religious leaders of the day, Jesus “welcomed sinners” (Lk. 15:2). Of course, today we don’t use language like that because it smacks of judgment. “Sinners? Gasp! How dare you utter such a condemning word!” But we sure do like the idea of welcome.
    So what does welcome convey–not in the sense we may use it today, but in the way it describes Jesus in Luke 15?

    With the political climate such as it is these days, I often hear folks talking about the separation of church and state.

    Once again Fairbury is in the news in an unfavorable light, and it involves the young people of the community. The finger pointing, the blame, and also the avoiding our own responsibilities in this matter have begun and will continue.  As Jesus makes a clear distinction in the rolls of the government in regard to bad deeds (see Matthew 22:21 and Paul’s instruction in Romans 13:5-7) and the role of the church and it’s pastors, my response in this article is not to go into what should or should not be done, although every person should support, correct, offer advice in the matter as your civic responsibility. My task as a pastor in this community is to speak to what God says about such problems.

    The plan of redemption provides for the entire man, soul and body, but that while our souls are now delivered from the power of all sin—restored to the “image of God”—our bodies will not be immortalized until the end of time, when this “for the perishable must itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality” (I Corinthians 15:53).
