• I have been privileged to meet some important people throughout my life. Many of them are, or were, leaders with powerful influence in the Lord's church, or in our state, or the nation. Yet, there is one person that influenced my life and others that had a most humble task. His name was Solomon and he was the West End Elementary School janitor. 

  • I shared this quote from the poet, Carl Sandburg in last Sunday's sermon:


    "There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud."


    Even though we are now well underway in this new year of 2020, it is not too late to make a life changing resolution.

  • I have always enjoyed reading. From my childhood years, reading has been something that I have valued. It often provided an escape from reality for me during some difficult times growing up. This love for reading has been a driving force in my years of ministry. It also served me well in the five and a half years that I worked in the public library. 


    Whether you like to read or not, I want to encourage you to read the Bible this year. As the first week of the New Year draws to a close, it is worth noting that 2020 has been declared “The Year of the Bible.”
