Easter 2023

Today is Friday. Fridays have become a good day because I switched my role as minister to worker bee and now have a weekend to rest, play and get chores done. This Friday is extra special because it is God’s Friday around the world as we remember the work of Christ on the cross. Can…

A Pie for every state

Today is Pi Day (3.14) and we did have pie to celebrate. It is the perfect food group. Think about it. Everything from savory to sweet, from pizza to quiche to hand held and frozen. It can be created with many crusts and fillings and eaten at every meal! When my dad was a chemist…

Work Anniversary

We used to say we worked in decades. We spent 10 years in Downey, Scottsdale and Illinois. Now I have spent 10 years on staff in Fullerton. The church has changed its name and pastors more than once during that time. I have changed offices, job responsibilities, had a ridiculous number of “bosses” and said…

God is like a Mom

The Bible is clear on the idea that we understand God better through relationships and comparisons to those people we know. We know what God is like and what He is not like as we interact with the world around us. Jesus told parables of familiar things to help us understand God’s character. By example,…
