Let's Go!

Plek History While I was in the military, I was stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC and attended Village Baptist Church. It was there that something changed in me; I started to really look at my walk with God. The people there were different, they were serious about sharing their faith and it had such an impact on me. Within the first week of attending the church, I had someone kn...

Christian Growth

Frustrated? As a pastor, I often hear these words from people at my church or people in between churches. "I'm just not getting fed anymore." Now there is something in me that gets defensive when I hear that. Partly because I spend a bunch of hours pouring into a sermon that I present on Sundays that are highly labor intensive. It's probably the same feeling a parent has...

Why We Group

High School Life When I was in high school, the basketball team was my everything. It was my accountability. It was my inspiration. It was everything. I wasn't thrilled that I was riding the pine. But the reality was that was probably the best place for me. At the time I was 5'9" and probably around 160 lbs. Not exactly on any college's recruiting roster. However, I pract...

The Gathering

Public Worship The public worship gathering for Christians is a controversial topic. If you have been living in a closed country such as North Korea, Afghanistan or Somalia, gathering as a Christian today is just as dangerous as gathering as a Christian last year. The only difference is the police will knock at your door in North Korea, and today it might be a Virus. With...

Reconcile 2

reconciled

Quiet Time In my quiet time this week I came across Acts 10 and 11. Luke wrote about Peter receiving the vision from God that all animals were now considered clean. Peter in the trance said, "My lips have never touched anything unclean." But three times that vision came to him followed by a knock on the door. An Italian man had sent messengers to bring Peter to his house ...

Reconciled to God

This week I posted on my personal facebook the question: How sure are you that you would go to heaven when you die on a scale of 1-10. If I'm honest, I thought a few faithful Christians would respond with the standard standard Evangelical Christian answer: I am a 10 because I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Which is good solid ortho...

Peace in the Year of Conflict

Seeking Peace Friction in relationships has been a hallmark of 2020. We are enduring a global pandemic, social unrest, homeschooling the new reality, and everything fun being canceled. This has led to stress being heightened not only in the public square but within our homes. If we are honest, strife hits us in three places. Our relationships. Our circumstances. Our think...

Our primary focus as the church should always be reconciling hearts to God, which must ultimately lead also to reconciling with one another. As representatives of Christ, when we ar...

Daniel 1:8serves as the key verse for everything that happens in the book of Daniel and what I hope will happen with our 2017. Daniel had resolve. He made up his mind and stuck with it despite all c...

The Reckless Samaritan

The Parable of the Reckless Samaritan Who Is My Neighbor? Mercy and generosity are terribly difficult for me. It turns out, I'm not alone. I remember back to my college days when a good friend of mine, Scotty, who was a member of the freshman Bible study I led came up to me after a meeting flustered and upset. We had talked earlier that night about giving to the poor. ...
