A Common Yoke

April 15, 2018   Where there is no vision, the people will cast off restraint. Proverbs 29:18  When there is no vision, it’s every man for himself.  When common vision is cast off, when moral restraint is removed and when there is no common decency, when right or wrong becomes a matter of individual preference; […]

New Boston

April 9, 2018 In 1970-71 I was newly married and graduation from Bible College was approaching quickly.  Each Sunday my wife and I drove from our home in Lenox, Massachusetts to the rural community of Sandisfield, Massachusetts, where I served as student pastor of the New Boston Congregational Church.  The Junior and Senior classes at […]

The Sins Of The Fathers

Sins of the Fathers The Lord sent a “man of God” to old Eli (I Samuel 2) with a harsh word for the old man. He had been given a place of unique stature and opportunity among the people of Israel. As a Judge and Priest he had both the opportunity and authority to influence […]

Remembering a Friend

        November 7 will mark the passing of my pastor and mentor; my friend, Robert Parmley.  He died on November 7, 2011. Without question, “Pudge” Parmley had more impact upon my life than any other human being. It was he who led me to Christ, discipled me in the faith, and guided […]

Governed by Offense

  And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. Matthew 24:10 Look carefully at these words and the sequence in which they are written. Jesus is outside the city of Jerusalem responding to their questions regarding the “end of the age.” He shares with them a number […]

Reflections

  When we allow ourselves to be alienated from our family we expose them to the attacks of the enemy and make them, and ourselves, more vulnerable to his devices. (This was actually written several weeks ago while on vacation with my family in Florida. It was quite an extravaganza to have all of my […]
