What Amazing Power!

Most of us are familiar with Albert Einstein.  We know him as this brilliant professor, head covered with white hair, writing E=MC2 on the blackboard.  We regard Albert Einstein as a great genius. But there is another side to Einstein that you may not be as familiar with.  Before he achieved a place of honor and…

The Magic Seed

This morning we continue in our study of the gospel of Mark, and if you’d like to follow along in your Bibles, we’ll be in Mark chapter 4. The story of Jack and the Beanstalk has been a children’s favorite for many years.  And you know how the story goes.  Jack and his mother were…

Are You Listening?

I’m sure you’ve all heard the story about the blind men and an elephant.  In this story, none of these men knew what an elephant was, because they had never seen one.  And so, one by one, each man was led into a room, asked to find the elephant, and was told to describe the…

Jesus and the Pharisees

As we continue in our study of the gospel of Mark, I want to talk with you this morning about a movement that began a number of years ago.  This movement became necessary because, despite the fact that God has set forth certain guidelines in his word, over the years, people became unfaithful and weren’t…

Hope (Why Bother?)

I’m sure you all heard the story in the news recently about how billionaire Robert F. Smith spoke at the graduation ceremony at Morehouse College and in his speech, said he would pay off the loan debts for all 396 graduates. What an incredible display of grace and love. But Robert Smith was not the…
