Congregation works to keep kids warm

The members of St. Phillip's Episcopal Church believe year round in the spirit of giving, whether that means providing a meal to a homeless person or putting a shivering child in a jacket.

Putting disappointment in perspective

At this time of year a person gets used to traveling down certain roads and looking for Christmas lights. Some people consistently light up their homes or lawns with these beautiful displays. This year I have noticed that some such displays are missing – my guess is that it could be because of the economy.

What God has given

When we stop to think of all the things God has given, it really is unbelievable. His generosity toward man is immeasurable.

What will you do with Jesus this season?

Last week I asked you to take a Christmas quiz with me. I would not do that to you two weeks in a row. But I will ask you again, how much do you know about this season? And even more, how much do you need to know?

What kind of God is this?

I think about the love I have for my wife all the time, especially the feeling I have when I see her smile. The joy that comes over me when I am the source of that smile is overwhelming. Sometimes the hair on the back of my neck stands up when she walks into a room. It is easy to love someone this way, especially when you know that the love is reciprocal. I am sure there are some husbands who can identify with what I am saying.

Only one way leads to Heaven

We all have ways of doing things. As human beings, created in the image of God and given the ability to make choices, sometimes we disagree. God gives us this license when it comes to earthly things.

You don't have to spend money to give

The scripture tells us that "it is more blessed to give than to receive."

Remember to stay focused on Jesus

It is very easy during this time of the year to lose focus on what is important. With the pressure of society, family and friends, sometimes we find ourselves caught in a whirlwind of wants, requests and desires that blur the vision that was so clearly mapped out for us just a few months earlier.

Who is it you're giving thanks to?

At this time of year, we hear a lot about the things we should be thankful for, such as family, good health, financial resources and the things we need that they buy. It is important to give thanks for the blessings of life that we receive. But there is another question that needs to be answered: Who is the recipient of our thanks?

Live by the message from Heaven

The God of creation did not just create man and leave him to his own devices. God speaks to man so man can know what God desires of him. The way God speaks to man has changed thorough the centuries of time.

Do you listen to what God says?

Many years ago, my wife and I moved away to New Orleans to go to school. We were both in our early 20s, having been married only a year and a half. We were scared and excited, all at the same time. I imagine that our parents (both sets) were more frightened than excited.

Wait on the Lord in the race of life

I have mentioned this before in this space, but I have a deep desire to "finish well" in whatever I do. Last month, I attended a "pre-retirement" seminar sponsored by our state Baptist convention. My retirement is not just around the corner, but this was advertised as an important event for all pastors "over the age of 50."
