Coins with God’s Image (Camp Meeting,  7/8/18)

Jesus’ response to the trap was brilliant:”Whose image is on that coin? Then give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, but give to God what belongs to God.” It blew His questioners away.
The sermon at the 7/8/18 Camp Meeting turned that question towards us: What “coins” are you carrying?

Running on Empty (4/8/18)

Easter is over. All of the plans, dinners, and holidays are finished. It’s time to get back to normal. But what was “Normal” for the disciples? They were totally drained. Worn out by worry and fear. Doesn’t that happen to us? Do we sometimes feel that we’re running on fumes?
