• “I’m all for change as long as it doesn’t affect me.” I can’t remember who said that, but it is one of my favorite quotes. It accurately describes our aversion to changes that come in life. We live in a time of perpetual change that affects every area of our lives. This is true even when it comes to the church, but it’s nothing new. The church has a history of adapting.


  • 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.
