Pastor Jim’s Corner

Most of us grew up on shows like Friends, Seinfeld and Cheers. The latter was one of my favorites, probably because I loved the theme song so much. I’ll never forget the jingle, “Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came…” When you stop and think about it though, those words really ring...

Let’s be honest. These days, it’s hard to take things at face value. To trust what people say. It’s hard to know if people really have your best interest in mind. However, there is one that we can fully trust— every word, every action, even every intention. You know who I’m talking about. His name is Jesus. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us, “Trust...

  I loved going to the carnival growing up. We had one in our town, and each year, nearly everyone would come out and enjoy the fun rides and great food. There was one section that always cracked me up (and gave me a good reason to laugh at my sisters) — the room with the distorted mirrors. Have you ever...

The Bible story of Noah and the flood seems like a simple story, but it’s really packed with biblical symbolism. In it, God told Noah to build an ark, a big boat, because the world had become so sinful that God wanted to start over. He told him that He was going to send a flood to destroy the whole...

One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is remembering the prophecies that were fulfilled through Jesus’ birth. In the Old Testament, there are 60 prophecies that give us over 300 distinct pictures describing just what it would like when He came. You know what’s cool? According to the mathematical law of scientific probability, the chance Jesus could fulfill...

Back in my day, there was a popular show on television called Heehaw. Do you remember it? There was a song that lamented the realities of gloom, despair and agonies - that all of us experience. I’m a little embarrassed to say that song gets stuck in my head every now and then. I know it’s just a fun song, but...

One of my favorite Christmas memories was when I was just a toddler, and I decided that I wanted to have a real live bird’s nest on our family Christmas tree. My brother who was five years older than me, loved to take care of me, so he decided he would go out and find one. Sure enough, Kenny climbed way up...

During the holiday season, we hear a lot about Jesus. We hear a lot of Scripture. But what I’ve learned lately is that for God’s Word to become more than words to us, we have to go beyond reading and into fully trusting what it says. It’s only when we fully trust what it says that we will obey. And...

When I was a kid, my gift of leadership started showing itself in the setting of organized sports. The only bad part about this was that my gift wasn’t mature, which made my passion often look a whole lot more like anger.  I’ll never forget the day we had lost a Little League game, and I went on a rant at...

When we want to make progress in our lives, we often pray for “open doors.” That comes from the verse in Revelations 3 that says that what God opens, no man can shut. Doesn’t that sound appealing? An opportunity that no one can interfere with? A blessing that no one can take from you? That’s what God is promising here. But...
