How big is the universe? Two Harvard astronomers have discovered a “great wall” of galaxies that they estimated to be 500 million light-years long, 200 million light-years wide, and 15 million light-years thick (One light year is 5.88 trillion miles).  If you think that’s amazing, consider this – the Lord Jesus not only created all those galaxies, but He also sustains (holds together) everything He has created (Col 1:16-17). But do you know what’s even more amazing? It’s the fact that this mighty and awesome God cares enough to...

To get his goodnight kiss he stood beside my chair one night; and raised an eager face to me; a face with love alight. And as I gathered in my arms the son God gave to me; I thanked the lad for being good, and hoped he’d always be. His little arms crept round my neck, and I heard him say four simple words I can’t forget, four words that made me pray. They turned a mirror in my soul on secrets no one knew. They startled me; I hear them yet; He said, “I’ll be like you.” Many years ago I received a Father’s Day present from Brent that...

The United States Declaration of Independence does not conclude with the words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident,” but rather with the list of names at the end of the document; men who were willing to stake their fortunes, sacred honor, and their lives on a few convictions that literally changed the world. After those men signed that historic document, there have been millions of our country’s brave military personnel who have either died or have been in harm’s way to preserve our cherished freedoms and to free other nations...

The following Mother’s Day devotional came from the heart and pen of Chuck Swindoll:   If there’s one attitude families are guilty of more than any other when it comes to mothers, it’s presumption . . . taking them for granted . . . being nearly blind on occasion to the load moms carry. This was reinforced in my mind last week as I was thumbing through a row of crazy greeting cards at a local drugstore. Time and again the joke in the card drew its humor from this obvious attitude that pervades a household: Forget the...

While Brent and family were in town this weekend, we all went to see the movie, The Case for Christ. It is a true story of the life-journey of Lee Strobel who went from being an atheist to being a believer; from being a legal journalist to being a Christian apologist, staff pastor, and college professor at a Baptist University.  I want to strongly encourage you to take your family or friend(s), along with a skeptic you have befriended and go see this powerful and convincing life-story.   Mike Romero and Kathy Lee Hatchett from the...

As I reflect upon Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, my heart is filled with joy and thanksgiving! The amazing music was superseded only by the awesome presence of God by His Spirit.  Blessings to our Majestic Voices, Praise Team, soloists, instrumentalists, and the sound/AV team.  It goes without saying that we all were blessed by the wonderful attendance on Easter Sunday. Last, but not least, thank you, Dr. Bill Green, for your dedication and hard work. He is risen! He is risen indeed!   ************************************ Recently, the...

This past Wednesday night I presented a recommendation to the church that Dr. Bill Green be approved to serve as our next Interim Minister of Music. While his calling to serve our church was not yet official at the time of writing, I feel very confident that our church family will excitedly affirm this godly and gifted man. I really got to know Bro. Bill during the Singing Churchmen of Oklahoma’s mission to Australia in 2003. It was my privilege to be one of five Oklahoma pastors who joined about 300 current and former ministers of music and...

I once read about a chain of adult education schools called The Learning Annex. These schools have supposedly “graduated” over 200,000 people who completed the popular classes on controlling household clutter. Who took the classes? People who keep empty jelly jars, manuals for appliances they no longer have, out-of-date phone books, and keys to houses they lived in many years ago. Household “junk” occupies space, saps us of energy, and creates a lot of frustration. Most every home needs to have an annual spring cleaning and the Tignor...
