Seeking a Sign

sign preparation

If you drive by the church and see a blank sign over the next couple of days, fear not! We haven’t planned a surprise change of our church’s name or anything like that! We’re just updating the service time to 10 a.m., and while we’re at it, putting up the revised church logo (just like the one at the top of this webpage). The sign should be finished by either this weekend or next depending on weather and other factors.

You could just say we needed to RE:NEW the sign. ;)

P.S. Thanks to Facilities staffers Howard Anderson and Dan Preston (pictured) and John York (not pictured) for getting things ready for the new look.

Chicken Run

August 15 2009 at 2:50 pm 1 Comments

Here’s a picture of our chickens. True to form, Calamity isn’t in
the picture because she ran away when I got close.

I think I get more e-mails from members about our chickens than any other subject. Here are two I got after I talked about my chicken Calamity in last Sunday’s message. By the way, I named her after a chicken in one of our family’s favorite books, Chancy and the Grand Rascal.

Dear Josh,

In your message today you mentioned the issues you are having with your chicken, Calamity. The answer is so obvious ... you have given her a name that alienates her! I don’t think she feels the love ... naming her Calamity just was a set up for a bad relationship. Really, if you were her, would you want to run to someone who thought you were a calamity? Clearly you need to rename her ... how about, Charity? 

Hope this helps.


Dear Josh,

I’ve been studying Psalm 23 this week—have avoided this for a long time because it was so “popular.” And I’ve found it to be so rich!! Definitely worth its reputation!!

However, in writing it out for a friend, I noticed that just a small slip of a finger could render it even more meaningful for your family!
Psalm 23:5
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil; my coop overflows.
Praying for you today. May your coop overflow!

(Perhaps church goers could have coffee and scrambled eggs between services next Sunday? :-)

Back From Vacation

We just returned from vacation last weekend, and I’m diving into working on a new sermon series which I’ll tell you about on Sunday. My kids are living in their Summer Celebration t-shirts this week. We missed you guys.

Happy Thanksgiving

November 25 2008 at 5:13 pm 0 Comments

If two months studying Ephesians 1-3 isn’t good preparation for Thanksgiving, I don’t know what is. God has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. He has redeemed us. We were dead and he made us alive. He’s joined us to himself and to his family. He’s given us spiritual gifts.

Whether or not the turkey is cooked right or your holiday goes according to plan, we have so much to thank God for.

I hope you and your loved ones have a great Thanksgiving this week. Our family is driving to Dayton, Ohio, to celebrate with my Grandmother. It won’t be long before Grandma Harris will be with the Lord. She’s been walking with him since she was 8 years old.
