And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”  ~Luke 22:19No one watches a movie to see ordinary people doing ordinary things. Every compelling story includes extraordinary actions by extraordinary people. What makes the story and message of Jesus so compelling after over 2,000 year...  Read More

We all want to be part of something special...something unique and extraordinary. But for something unique to happen, we can’t simply go with the flow. By definition, there is nothing extraordinary about the mundane and ordinary. As people being restored to our original image in Christ, we should aspire to be off-the-charts EXTRA-ordinary. The great news: In Christ we CAN be!In preparation for Sun...  Read More

It is common to hear a Christian say, “I’m putting God first” or to counsel others to “make sure God has first place in your life.” Such expressions are used so often they run the risk of becoming a Christian cliché, better yet, making God secondary which could lead to all types of issues. While this is nothing new under the sun putting God first is thoroughly biblical from Genesis to Revelation.E...  Read More

"If you're gonna be dumb, you'd better be tough!"  Have you ever heard that phrase??  Its a stark reminder that our decisions have "tough" consequences.  The world gives us enough on its own, but our own decisions can either add, or subtract, from the harshness of this world.  I've lived the life where my decisions were making life very tough.  I've also lived  the life where my decisions were pro...  Read More

I saved my favorite parable for last. This Sunday we will explore a story from Jesus that gives us a glimpse into the heart of our Heavenly Father and gives us insight for how to be a great father.While questions swirl around “Who is GOD?” and “What is GOD like?”, Jesus Himself and many of the scriptures refer to Him as a Father. This was risky on God’s part, because the idea of “father” has come ...  Read More

The parables of Jesus were so simple they can be used in a child’s Sunday School class to teach important life lessons, yet profound enough to challenge the most educated theologian in the deep spiritual nuances of God’s Kingdom.This week we will look at one such story. Jesus was approached by an expert in the law (a most educated theologian) with a question designed to trap Him and undermine the ...  Read More

That’s not fair!! This favorite phrase from our childhood shows that all of us are driven by this innate sense of fairness. Yet, if there is anything we know about life, it’s simply that life is not fair. And we have no indication that it ever will be. So if we all know this, why are we still so insistent on achieving some level of fairness in all kinds of arenas? It’s like an itch we can never qu...  Read More

You just gotta love this cancel culture. One screw up and it’s, “Off with their head!” The good thing is, it has been so helpful for cleaning up society and making this world a better place...right? Well, maybe not so much.  You ever wonder if Jesus were here in the flesh now, who He would be slicing and dicing on Facebook or Twitter? The disciples were wondering one day about how to treat those w...  Read More

The stories Jesus told were simple, yet profound. He had this amazing way of packing a tree of insight into a seed of truth.Many of His stories started with the phrase, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like…”. If I had a friend planning a trip to South Haven and I wanted to prepare them for their trip, I might say, “South Haven is like…” and then describe something unique and exciting about this town I l...  Read More
