The Holidays – A Time For Hope, Not Despair. part 2


“You came to set the captive free.  You came to give us liberty.  My son and my rejection, Your blood and my acceptance, Now I’m alive to bring You praise…” (Freedom, copyright 2012, by Bethel Music). This is what Jesus, the Son of God, the Gift of the Father, came to do – give us freedom! If you’re like me, […]

The Holidays – A Time For Hope, Not Despair


I am, admittedly, a hopeful romantic – not hopeless!  I like to see the good in people; in life, in the way circumstances should resolve to be.  That said, I have lived enough years to know things don’t always turn out the way I want them, but it doesn’t mean I can’t hope for the best. I still enjoy sitting […]

Something New Is Happening At Grace Church!


“Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them” (Isaiah 42:9, NKJV). “New things I declare…” For the past couple of years, I have been sensing change coming. I wasn’t sure what the change would be, but quite honestly, Faith Harbor Church has endured a great deal […]

What does it look like when 1,000 people, 10 churches and a dozen or so community organizations gather at Grape Day Park? You’d know had you been there October 14.

Servanthood: A Setup, Or A Setback? Part 2


“Elijah went up to him and threw his cloak over him.  Elisha deserted the oxen, ran after Elijah, and said, “Please! Let me kiss my father and mother good-bye—then I’ll follow you.”  “Go ahead,” said Elijah, “but, mind you, don’t forget what I’ve just done to you.” So Elisha left; he took his yoke of oxen and butchered them. He […]

Servanthood: A Setup or Setback?


“And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all” (Mark 9:35, NKJV). We live in a very self-centered society.  Sadly, it seems, often tragedy must strike before people realize what is truly important, or of value.  In a society like ours, faith […]

The True Nature of God, Pt.1


A recent Gallup poll shows that 89% of Americans say they believe in God.  Another poll indicates that 79% Americans believe in God.  What is striking is that the number of believers is down by approximately 25% since WWII (gallup.com).
