Stop stealing

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Many of you remember days when you did not lock your house or your car. For most of us that time has long since passed.

It seems that the new morality is that if you don’t get caught then you are not guilty and there is nothing wrong with what you did. However, I must remind you that thievery is not a new issue.

The Shepherd Calls: What About Those Blessings

by Dr. H. Wade Paris

Matt was buying his groceries at the “rich people’s” store in Memphis, Tennessee. A hungry teen approached his cart and asked if he could carry out the groceries when he finished in exchange for the box of donuts in the cart. Overcome with the disparity between his (Matt’s) overflowing cupboard and the teenager’s empty refrigerator, the two guys got to know each other. Matt spent

Declaring Independence

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Without question, the signers of the Declaration of Independence understood the gravity of their action. Surely they understood enough of the possible consequences that they must have agonized over the decision. Certainly they must have envisioned that most of them would lose their money and property. They must have also realized that many of them would give their very lives and that the lives of their

Good Thinking: Tragedy in Orlando

by Dr. Don Kuehle

We mourn the tragic shooting of 49 people in Orlando, Fla. As Christians, we hold that all life is sacred because every life was created by a holy God. Every life has value, regardless of a person’s beliefs or lifestyle.

The tragedy is that the lives of these 49 people was cut short by an act of violence. The killer believed in a god-of-death; his religious

The importance of words

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The first 11 verses of James chapter 3 tell of the power of the tongue. Mostly they describe the wickedness and destructive power of our speech. Sadly, these verses point out our inability to keep our tongues in check and the wretched consequences of our words. These ideas were not original with James. He was only reiterating what he had certainly heard from Jesus.

Fathers, the hour has come

by Pastor Steve Ellison

For centuries Christians and non-Christians alike were in perfect agreement about the importance of fathers to the well-being of families, neighborhoods, communities, cities, states, and countries. In recent times, that truth has been conveniently ignored in order to keep from casting aspersions on “alternate lifestyles.”

As the Church, we need to hold high the mantle of fatherhood. We need to raise our expectations of fathers. We

Christian Fellowship

by Pastor Steve Ellison

 Church members have a lot of misconceptions about Christian fellowship and Christian unity. The New Testament speaks much of being of one accord and being in unity. Agreement is not unity. Agreement can be simply a matter of behavior. Unity will involve attitude and heart. Unity will involve the spirit as well as the letter. The Bible is clear that unity is a gift from God,

The Shepherd Calls: Word Pictures

ShepherdCalls_WP

The wall in my home office is covered with pictures. In the center of those pictures, there is a family portrait. Many of the pictures around it are family, too. Some of the pictures predate me, like the one of my wife’s grandfather’s family and the picture of my maternal grandmother. Then there are graduation pictures of my wife and me. There are pictures of our children when they were
