God’s Miracle of Peace

Is life a puzzle? Problems, questions, fears?  We all struggle with issues in our lives; they come and go in a constant barrage.  Sometimes you look at the pieces of your life, and they don’t seem to fit together.  Somewhere, there must be peace.  Where is that “Piece” of the puzzle?

PUMC Celebrates the Life of Dr. Ed Blackman (5/7/14)

  Our church lost one of it’s “pillars” when Ed Blackman went home to be with his Lord on Friday May 2 (obituary).  He is survived by his wife Marge.  Ed and his wife Marge were long time members of our church and led in many capacities over the years.  They have led not only in official office capacities and in organized ministries, but both of them have and continue to touch the lives of so many of our members.  Most of us carry memories of Ed’s witness and...

Google it!  But if you want to know anything about death and where someone goes when they die, you’ll get a 404 error- answer not found! But Google is actually trying to do something about that… what can we do to extend life and maybe even eliminate death itself? A 2013 article in Time Magazine reports that Google is working on a...
