Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray you had a blessed week.

I am deeply saddened by the latest conflicts in Israel and Gaza. In the very lands that our Lord and Savior walked and brought the Good News of Peace, conflict, violence, hatred and killing persists. So what caused this latest conflict? Why do both sides keep bombing and killing? Well, that depends on which…

The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us. Amen

On our drive home last Sunday, we stopped in Hannibal, MO. Now for those of who might not know, Hannibal is the childhood hometown of Mark Twain and the hometown of the Unsinkable Molly Brown. So, we stopped there for two reasons, one, I was hungry and…

There is an old joke about a man who owned a parrot. Every day at 5 p.m., the man took the parrot and walked down the street to the corner bar where he had a few drinks and talked with his friends. He had taught the parrot to order for him yelling out, “Gimme a beer! Gimme a beer!” every time he came in…

This Makes No Sense!

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us. Amen

I hope you all had a fun and safe Fourth of July. So, did you go to, or host a BBQ? Did you go buy some fireworks and set them off? If you did, hopefully you were careful as to where you shot them off. I love fireworks! In the city of De Soto where…

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray you had a blessed and safe 4th of July.

For most of us, we celebrate on the 4th of July with fireworks, parades, and barbeques. As a national holiday, it marks that date in U.S. history, July 4, 1776, on which the Declaration of Independence was adopted.

So, I got to wondering this week, did they have huge celebration on July…

Come, And Be Well!

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us. Amen

If something is repeated it must be important. In our Gospel text this morning, the word “welcome” appears six times. In just three verses, Jesus says the word “welcome” six times. If something is repeated, it must be important.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you’ve had a blessed week.

As I was reading through some articles online this week, one, in particular, caught my attention that I just had to read. The headline read, “Should We Love Conditionally or Unconditionally?” It was actually a May 3, 2014 article from the New York Times that was an excerpt from a book entitled…

​Encounter God, Grow in Faith, Serve the World

Shared by Meghan Harmison

Matthew 10: 24-39

Every time we encounter God we change

When we change, we grow

As we grow we desire to serve.

We have to be uncomfortable in order to change

It requires vulnerability to encounter God. When we are in our most vulnerable states we encounter God and all He has to offer. When we are vulnerable…

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you’ve had a blessed week.

Back in March, several of us from Salem attended a leadership seminar. It was a great learning experience and, as part of the learning process, those of us that attended now get to meet with our leadership coach several times through the year to help us learn and adopt new, more effective styles of leadership.…

We Are A Trinitarian Congregation!

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us. Amen

Today is the one day in the church calendar that we focus on a doctrine of the church. Today is Holy Trinity Sunday! Now if you try to look for the word trinity in scripture, or for an explanation of what the Trinity is in scripture you won't find it.…
