Posted Posted in Pastor

Have you ever been in a classroom full of brilliant people and questioned why you were there? Or how about that dreaded scenario when teams are being selected and you realize that you are the shortest and most “pear” shaped one on the court? My favorite is when you find yourself in a job and […]

A Note from Pastor Scott “I’ll show her.” These words sounded tough as they rolled off my tongue.  Of course, I only said them loud enough for my friends to hear but certainly not loud enough for the bus driver to hear. This was the school bus strike of 1982. I was in the 5th grade at […]

A note from Pastor Scott: Have you ever had one of “those” conversations?  “Those” conversations are the conversations where you talk about things that make you cringe because you are forced to face reality.  Reality is often a cold and honest slap to the face.  In this specific instance, Tammy started the downward spiral by […]

Wednesday morning I woke up and declared to Tammy that I decided to give up deer hunting for the Lenten season. She smiled and laughed because she knew better than I that the season closed that very day. We both laughed together then launched into a conversation about the things that so often hinder our […]
