Matthew 18

If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three...

Sabbath Rest

God Himself took a day to rest after creating the world. We know this from the very first book of the Bible. Six days were spent in the business of creation, from the rhythms of the solar system to the intricate details of the tiniest insect, and then after everything was done...

Mental Illness and the Church

Ordinary Time

We are now in the “green” season of the church year. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Well, in our church (and most other liturgical churches throughout the world), the church year is marked by the colors on the altar and that the pastor wears. We even...
