The Minimum Requirement

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 There are many now and in all past ages who think that they are followers of Jesus who actually have no idea what that might mean. Jesus addressed this issue in Matthew 7:20-23, “You will know them by their fruits. Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in

The Shepherd Calls: Election — Time to pray and sing

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

Election times are difficult for me, all of them, even the minor local elections. If I am one who should cast a ballot, I agonize over it. National presidential politics are the worst. Elections are very much like domestic squabbles. Since you know your opponent well, you know how to really hurt them. Often words are spoken that destroy or at least will never heal.

Good Thinking: Discrimination vs Freedom of Speech

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“Discrimination” is one of the most misused and abused words in our language today. The original meaning of the word has been drastically changed, but the truth behind the original meaning has not changed. Mr. Webster defines “Discrimination” as (a) making a distinction on the basis of prejudice or lack of information; or (b) to note a difference between persons or things.

“Freedom of Speech” is

Chronicle of the King

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The gospels are not designed to be exhaustive, chronological descriptions Jesus. Each gospel is written in order to present a particular side of the magnificent Messiah. Our Savior is far too altogether lovely to be illustrated in one painting. Therefore, in addition to all of the Old Testament passages, we have been given four gospels, each of which paints related but different paintings of His majesty.

The Shepherd Calls: When to speak

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

The City of Worcester, Mass. is in an upheaval about the placement of a new cemetery. Apparently disgusted with the behavior of his neighbors, Paul Joseph (a local citizen) noted, “This is America. Anybody that wants to can make any accusation they want to, and that has happened consistently in this situation.”

Mr. Joseph is correct; free speech is guaranteed by our constitution. Unlike Socrates,

Discipleship model for the New Testament Church

by Pastor Steve Ellison

When Paul found it necessary to leave the island of Crete, he left Titus in his place of leadership. Paul tasked Titus with finding and developing leadership for the various churches on the island.

The first chapter of Titus makes it very clear that it is more important to look for character than skill in establishing church leadership. Paul went on to say tell Titus that

The Shepherd Calls: Labor for the Kingdom

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

The first Labor Day holiday in the United States was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City.  Originally, it was a day to celebrate our workers and seek ways to improve their working conditions.   Over time it was designated as a national holiday to be celebrated on the first Monday of September.  The designation of that date has come to mark the
