Pastor Jim’s Corner

Feelings are weird. They’re often hard to explain and usually hard to navigate. Thankfully, we aren’t left in the dark about how to handle them. We see clear pictures of good and bad practices when we look at the life of David in the Bible. If you’ve studied the Old Testament at all, you’d have no trouble arguing that David was...

One of my favorite commercials is the old Geico commercial where a man is holding a cup of coffee, turns to look at his watch and spills the entire cup of hot coffee all down his nice suit. The spot ends with a voice-over stating the blunt truth, “We all do dumb things.” I probably think it’s so funny because I...

There’s no doubt about who the most influential person in the history of the world is. Jesus Christ. Even those who don’t believe He was the Messiah believe that He made an unmatchable impact on society. We can probably list many reasons why Jesus was so influential, but it really all comes down to one word: compassion. It’s not just the...

We were all created for an individual purpose. We have a specific calling, and we can’t run from it no matter how hard we try. It’s the reason we live, and it’s always on our minds. Jesus knows this, and He also knows what it takes to fulfill that purpose. One of those things is that we have to learn to...

Dr. Albert Schweitzer accepted the Nobel Peace Prize in 1952. He was a medical missionary who spent most of his life in central western Africa. Not only was he accomplished in the medical field, but in the fields of theology and music as well. It was said that he received the award because of the great reverence for life that he...

When that happens, I’ve found it usually comes down to one thing: until we...

My grandfather was a farmer, so I picked up on quite a bit about farming, especially for a guy who is not really one to work with his hands… unless it involves throwing a baseball or swinging a bat, of course. During the summers I spent at my grandfather’s house, I learned a few things about seeds that have not only...

Every day, people do things with the hope that it’ll change their life like a new diet plan, a new exercise regimen, a new family devotional, buying a ticket at the lottery, and the list goes on. Most of the time, these things don’t do as much for us as we were banking on. But I have found something that will....

  Today, I’m an avid coffee drinker. But as a kid, I hated it because I had heard it stunted your growth. With a mom and dad both under 5’6”, I wasn’t about to hurt my chances! I drank my first cup at 44 years old, when I battled Hepatitis C and had to endure a difficult 12-month interferon treatment. My wife...
