10.13.2014. We're Not Alone. By Deacon Bruce McElrath.

Abram’s nephew was in a lot of trouble. The kings of Sodom and Gomorrah, where Lot lived, had been overtaken by a group of raiding kings. They sacked Sodom, captured Lot and his household, and then fled north.

When Abram heard that his brother’s son had been kidnapped, he rounded up 318 trained servants, chased the kidnappers and rescued Lot.

09.21.2014. The Parable of the Workers. By Reverend Andrew C. Smith, Jr.

It is not always easy to understand the ways of God. In today’s gospel we see the workers failing to understand why those who worked just one hour received the same wages as those who worked all day. It reminds us of our futile attempts to understand why some people seemingly have been dealt a better hand than others going through life. Why does God apparently give more blessings to some than to others?

Worship Service

The sign outside the church states, “Worship Service – Sunday at 8 and 11:30 a.m.” That ought to stop traffic. Passersby should take out their phones, tablets or pens and jot the time down. When a church gathers to worship astonishing things take place.

The letter to the Hebrews opens our understanding of the privilege and glory of worship. The writer declared that we have come to “the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn” (12:22-23)
