Why Do I Need Jesus

I had the honor of facilitating the sermon discussion last Wednesday night. It was altogether frightening and encouraging. The Big Question of the sermon was: Why should you want Christianity? In our pluralistic society, it's no longer a social taboo to not be a Christian. We are all faced with this question, eventually. Can't I just live another life in the secular world?...

Valuable in Christ’s Eyes

I had the privilege last week of leading our Wednesday night discussion of Brian Sorgenfrei's sermon Investigating Jesus' Pursuit (Jesus' attitude towards the lost). The sermon was based on the three parables found in Luke 15. For lack of space I will not print the chapter but I encourage you to prayerfully read it. The three parables actually go together as they are pres...

The Soundtrack to Your Faith

Hillsong brings their music and the Gospel to theaters across the world As a high-school English teacher, I spend a lot of time reading and scoring student essays. It's the price I pay to have summers off. This task gets old rather quickly. Reading what a high school student thinks about Poe's use of symbolism in "The Masque of the Red Death" can only hold your interest f...

How Music Taught Me To Worship

Music has always been a constant presence in my life. My earliest memories are singing in the car with my Mama, or sitting with Daddy going through his records. I loved and absorbed everything I heard. Around the time I learned to read, which was about the age of five, I could stand in the chairs at the old hospital building and follow along with the hymnal. Memorization ...

Sabbatical

Three years ago, our Session put forward Richard Owens to the congregation of WPC to be our Senior Pastor. In hindsight, this was a great decision. But in the moment, we thought that we were signing up a young guy with a learning curve ahead of him. This was his first pulpit. Being the head guy in charge is not an easy job. On top of that, he had a 6 month old baby. We we...
