This Game Called Life

by Mercedes McGee (Member) During my daughter’s softball game the other day, I began instructing my child on what she should be doing on the field, as did most of the parent’s; I must add I know very little about softball. Eventually, the coach walked over to all the parents and said, “Hey guys, I…

The Power of the Light

Mercedes McGee  (Member) The other day we were seeing a patient who was claustrophobic in our surgery room; the room can seem very dark since we never open the blinds, due to privacy issues. But on this particular day the patient insisted on having the blinds opened, so the other assistant opened them. I remember…

What Are You Listening To?

-Pastor Robbie Cheuvront As a worship pastor, I get asked a lot what I’m listening to and why. I never really thought about it much, why people would care what I have on my iPod, but I guess it’s a logical thing to assume that people would want to know what I listen to. And…

Are You Watchful?

-Pastor Robbie Cheuvront Colossians 4:2 – Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. (ESV)   In this exhortation, our brother, Paul, gives us a pretty straight forward command. Continue to pray. And then, he places a little nugget in there that I think we sometimes pass over too quickly, “… being watchful…”…

Reality, Depravity, & Ducks

-Pastor Robbie Cheuvront I hate reality TV. I’m not just saying that either. I think it’s perhaps the some of the most deprave, senseless, waste of human life ever to be imagined. I must clarify this, however. I’m not talking about reality TV in the sense of a game show, like “The Amazing Race”, or…

When Did I Become My Dad?

-Pastor Robbie Cheuvront Remember when you were a teenager, and you thought your parents were the dumbest people on planet earth? And remember how they embarrassed you at every turn, wanting a hug when you were around your friends, or yelling, “I love you!” as you got out of the car to go to school?…

What Makes A Man?

– Pastor Robbie Cheuvront In today’s society, the definition of a man has become disgustingly diluted. We’re shown the images on TV of overweight slobs who come home from a day’s work, only to sit on the couch and ignore his family; informing his wife that he’s “off duty” and that it’s her responsibility to…

The House Fire

Tom Dekorne Helpless.  Devastated, but alive.  The heat of the flames force him to stay back at a safe distance and watch all of his possessions serve as fuel for this great fire.  With smoke in his eyes, burns on his skin and soot in his hair, he stands on at a safe distance while…

Restless Soul

-Pastor Robbie Cheuvront If you’re like me, you find yourself restless at times, wondering what are you doing. You think that it just seems like groundhog day over… and over… and over again. And this can be very stressful. It can weigh on you. And you just think, God… is this really what I’m supposed…

In Light of the 2012 Election

  -Pastor Robbie Cheuvront Every election cycle, around this time in the campaign, our thoughts and conversations become consumed with what the political outcome is going to be.  And rightly so. It is our civic duty to engage in the election process and duly elect our leaders. More specifically, our Chief Executive. We Americans are…
