Providentially Delayed

1/24/2016

Picture it.  It’s Friday afternoon.  It’s a snow day and we are stir-crazy.  We had to get out of the house for a bit.  So, Amy and I decide to take the garbage to the end of our driveway, which we share with our neighbors.  It’s snowing, that’s all it had done all day. We bundle up (like Floridians living up north…yes, Tennessee is “up north” for us), grab the garbage, and head out.

Halfway to the garbage cans we notice our neighbors have just arrived home from braving the icy roads in their Nissan SUV.  Amy and I are excited and a bit nervous…we haven’t met our neighbors yet and now’s our chance.  We say hello and begin a conversation that lasts for a good 20 minutes.  It’s nice, we share a few laughs and they seem genuinely glad to meet us.  The feeling is mutual.  It couldn’t have gone much better…accept we nearly froze to death!  20 min conversations are great but not while it’s snowing and your beard is icing over (my beard…not Amy’s…Amy doesn’t have a beard).

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 about those who have never heard?

-Justin Long It’s a question that I have heard asked more times than I can count. Generally the question is asked in direct response to hearing the Gospel of Jesus told. I’m quite certain that you have wrestled through this question, and my guess is that you have probably changed your answer to the question…

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…”…

Cowards for Christ

-Pastor Robbie Cheuvront In the last few weeks, I’ve come across several articles or blogs centered on chastising Christians for standing up for what we know is right. Just recently, I read a post by someone who listed six things that Christians should stop saying. The number one thing on that list was that we…

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…
