Since the beginning of the year we have been praying daily,    "Lord, use me and change me.  Lord, use Union Church and change Union Church."     It has been inspiring to hear the testimonies of how the Lord is working in the lives of individuals.  Prayer is...

This week, I have been reading and meditating on Colossians chapter one. A wonderful chapter whereby Paul affirms the supremacy of the Son of God and affirms the Church. Paul ends this chapter by saying,     “He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone...

The Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 12:12 reminds us that 'the body is not made up of one part but of many." He also reminds us that there are many different spiritual gifts, all given by the same spirit for the common good. What is your spiritual gift and are you using it? We have many different...

Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz clicked her heels and stated, “there is no place like home.” It’s true, and the sentiment of home seems to be a theme this week. Steven Kim was sent home from the hospital. Theresa Cheung and a group of 15 went to minister at a seniors' home...

In June, I traveled to Florida to train to become a Stephen Leader. It was a positive and encouraging experience. Since 1975, over 600,000 people from all walks of life have been trained as Stephen Ministers –that is, lay caregivers who, in turn, have brought God’s healing love to...

Since my sermon on Psalms 23 a number of people have shared what “the Lord is my shepherd” means to them. Others thanked me for the illustration about my deaf and blind dog Minnie. It is clear we have a dog-loving congregation, so my sermon was about our God and my dog. That...

Are you being pursued by God’s love?This Sunday we focus our attention on Psalm 23.  I encourage you to read it once again this week and reflect on what is the most popular Psalm of them all.  A new insight for me was a new translation of verse 6.  Instead of...

In Wednesday’s Summer Psalms class someone shared a word: ”Magnificant.” He said a friend put together two words: “magnificent” and “significant.” It calls to mind, Mary’s Magnificat (Latin for magnifies), as in “My soul magnifies” the...

My new word for the week is “God-incidence.” Too many “coincidences” have happened to me in too short a time span. Maybe this happens often but I am too self-other-than-God consumed to notice. A recent preacher mentioned Brother Lawrence and his spiritual classic...
