Holiness Today … Is it Possible?

Holiness Today … Is it Possible?

Holiness. Does the word conjure up an image in your brain? Maybe you are picturing a super old, stuffy, church with cathedral ceilings and candles and incense, and a priest waving it around…? Is this word just too old? I grew up in a Nazarene church, and my parents always received this devotion book. Holiness […]

The Wedding

The Wedding

There is a hot spring breeze blowing through the big trees outside the living room.  As I look past the tops of those trees, I see my beloved little 1900’s church steeple and think about yesterday.  It was a milestone for us both. Since I was a little four-year-old sitting next to Daddy in the […]

The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth

The Truth, the Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth

This year I have felt a little bit like an explorer on an quest to discover something. This “something” has evaded many a brave soul for many a year. Some explorers never stumbled upon it, but I think I’m onto it. The truth. Ultimately, what is truth? “Truth is like the sun. You can shut […]

What’s New in the Grove~ a cabin

What’s New in the Grove~ a cabin

Five years ago, a woman in my hometown said to my friend, “How come she gets to have a church?”  Farmer Dean and I were slightly miffed.  Not because we thought it had merit, but because we thought … why doesn’t she get to have a church! For those of us who are dreamers and […]

What’s in Your Closet

  In television comedies, like I Love Lucy, an actor opens a surreptitiously bulging door to a storage area and is buried in an avalanche of junk. Something similar happened one day when all three of my daughters visited my home. My youngest, Jenessa, tried to open the basement closet door. A small pow-wow between […]

The Questionnaire at the Eye Doctor

The Questionnaire at the Eye Doctor

Last week, I had the privilege of going to the eye doctor alone. Those with small children will understand why I call this a privilege. Going anywhere alone is like a vacation, no matter how short-lived. And plus, the eye doctor is one of the better appointments you could have. No uncomfortable situations like visiting […]

Stuffed With Stuff by Tony Guerrero

Stuffed With Stuff by Tony Guerrero

STUFFED WITH STUFF Tony Guerrero “Declutter!” It’s such a modern catch word. There are articles, websites and even entire television shows dedicated to the idea that we hoard too much stuff and that it can be liberating to free ourselves from all the “junk” we collect over the years. But it’s not that new of […]

When You Want to Be Someone Else

When You Want to Be Someone Else

From the Pastor’s Corner, Tyler Bakker     A question that often comes up in my mind and in conversations with others is, “What does God want me to do with my life?” Not so much in, “is what I’m doing wrong” sort of way but rather “am I making the most of my life?” […]
