Am I a Good Samaritan?

Tammy Hise shares one of her "Good Samaritan" moments and the opportunities she's missed: Recently my daughter was visiting from Tulsa, and she and my mother and I were having lunch. My mom had been looking so forward to spending the day with us and having us all to herself. As we were talking, I noticed this elderly gentleman walk into the restaurant with a cane.

United Through Differences

Rev. Daniel Humbert expresses the joy of being in relationship with those who are different from him: We siblings are strange creatures, aren't we? In many ways we have a love/hate relationship going on all the time. We love each other because we're related and we grew up together, and yet we often can't stand each other because we're related and we grew up together….siblings!  I have two brothers. I'm the youngest, so of course...

Dear Trietsch...

Healing God's Way

Catherine Weiskopf shares how God pushed her outside of her comfort zone for healing: When we cry out to Jesus for healing, he rarely delivers on our timeline and in the way we wish. Jesus healed the bleeding woman when her fingers grazed his muslin tunic. (Luke 8:43) Jesus healed the blind man with a mud patty formed with spit. (John 9:6) For years I wanted to be healed by a minister putting his hand on my forehead, me collapsing on the ground, and all my problems would be gone. For this... Read More

Going Beyond Hello

Denise Robinson shares how she hopes the "Beyond Hello" worship series will help her pay more attention. Join us this Sunday! We lived for a short time in New Mexico. Our neighborhood was on a mesa (elevated area of land with a flat top.) At the end of our street was a view that took my breath away. You could see the rugged and beautiful terrain of this most interesting area.  Every time I left my house, whether by foot or in the car, I would pause at this...

My Struggle With Forgiveness

Ashley Whitehead-Pearce likes the concept of forgiveness, but admits it's easier said than done: I recently read a quote on Facebook that got me thinking about forgiveness. I can’t for the life of me remember the quote, but I know that it made me ask myself, "If God forgave me, why is it so hard for me to forgive others?"  The truth is… I’m a grudge-holder. A really good one. I pride myself in having a lot of faith in people, but... Read More

Call on the Church

Rev. Clay Horton knows many ways the church can support community members through unexpected changes: Most of the events on my calendar are tentative. I’m a planner. I like to know two weeks in advance what I’m going to be doing, but never-the-less, nearly everything is subject to change.  As a pastor, I continually live in the world of unexpected change. I am free to meet with you at 3 pm on Tuesday, unless there is a car wreck and I’m visiting...
