Good Thinking: Samuel and a Journey of Prayer

by Dr. Don Kuehle 

Samuel was an Old Testament prophet, priest, and judge. Samuel’s life from birth to death was a “journey-of-prayer.” Before he was born, his mother Hannah prayed for a son. God heard and answered her prayer. Samuel came into this world; his name meant “name of God.” In her joy, Hannah dedicated her son to God; and gave him into the hands of Eli, the high priest,

What on Earth Are You Here For?

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Man has long struggled in his quest to know a reason for his existence. Philosophers and theologians alike have spent their lives trying to solve this mystery.

Some Christians believe that God does not take a person immediately to heaven upon placing faith in Christ because He has a mission or job for the believer here on earth. While that may be true, I do not

Christian Disagreement

by Pastor Steve Ellison

A very long time ago, someone gave me very good advice, “Make your words soft so that when you have to eat them, they will not taste so bad.”

It seems to me that the Bible does not expect Christians to live in total agreement. Rather it seems that the Bible expects that Christians will disagree with each regularly. The sign to the rest of the

Good Thinking: Abraham, Journey of Faith

by Dr. Don Kuehle

“O Lord, I’m on my journey; O Lord, I’m on my journey;

O Lord, I’m on my journey; On my journey home!”

Life is one looong journey from Birth to Death. Life, for our sakes, is made up of shorter “journeys”; Lent is one of those shorter “journeys” that we take each year to deepen our spiritual life and to bring us closer to where God

Preach the Word

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Second Timothy is a very personal letter from Paul, who at the end of his life, wrote to his young disciple Timothy. Paul gave one last bit of advice and encouragement to Timothy (and all pastors) before he passed from this life.

Paul was a prisoner of Rome at the time, which makes this letter all the more poignant. Paul closed the letter with some personal
