By Dave Saviola, Arborbrook Financial I recently came across a great message from Andy Stanley, senior pastor of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Ga., on YouTube from a few years back. Andy was talking around Thanksgiving and he said, “This week is the hinge point in the rhythm of...

The Bear

By Sean Dietrich I’m watching the Alabama-Missouri game. I’m eating boiled peanuts. It’s the first time I’ve seen college football since the pandemic began some 300 years ago. To say I’m happy is like saying the Pope is an okay guy. I’m ecstatic. I don’t want to get all mushy about Alabama...
By Pastor Dave Holland An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever...

Homemade

By Sean Dietrich It’s late. And I wasn’t going to write this, but I have to. Not only for me, but for the good of our children, and our children’s children. No matter how hard it is to address. I’m talking, of course, about the highly controversial issue of homemade...
