Wisdom: Day Four

The Catholic Church lists wisdom as one of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. They describe wisdom as the capacity to love spiritual things more than material ones. This concept of spiritual wisdom against worldly wisdom is not a new idea. Paul even discusses God’s wisdom against the...

Wisdom: Day Three

There is an important distinction between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is about the accumulation of facts; knowledge refers to what you know. Wisdom, on the other hand, refers to the proper use of that knowledge; wisdom is about using what you know. Wisdom involves that ever-elusive element...

Wisdom: Day Two

We all think we are right about everything. I mean, if you thought you were wrong about something, would you not change what you thought until you thought rightly? That is the nature of our opinions; we hold them because we feel they are the right ones to have. However, the fact remains that...

Wisdom: Day One

In my younger (well, younger than now), more argumentative days, I was a very polemic person. Every issue had a definite right and a definite wrong answer, every problem had a correct and incorrect solution, and every situation had a good and bad choice. I believed this very strongly, and I...

Fruits of the Spirit: Day Five

It is always interesting to see what different cultures hold as virtues. Some cultures value strength, some wealth, some intelligence, some reputation, some position. People who are heroes of virtue in one culture may be viewed as repugnant in another. I, for one, am interested in the recent...

Leadership Meeting

As announced this past Sunday, there will be a leadership meeting on January 10th at the Golden’s home.  The evening will begin at 5:30 with a potluck.  If you are interested in becoming more involved, make plans to attend.

Fruits of the Spirit: Day Four

Faithfulness is an interesting topic. It possesses elements of resilience, obedience, and submission. Being faithful means choosing to follow God’s path, even when it does not make sense. Being faithful means acting as a Christian even during times of doubt. Being faithful has its own...

Fruits of the Spirit: Day Three

Today I would like to link together joy and peace. These are probably not characteristics that we often link together, but I think that we should. Those of you who attended the Thursday classes on Philippians may recall that joy is sprinkled throughout the letter. Indeed, joy plays an...

Haiti Mission Special Contribution

There will be a special contribution for the Haiti Medical Mission on December 14th.    Please keep the upcoming trip in your prayers

Fruits of the Spirit: Day Two

I spent the last couple of years before I came to Colorado working as a Youth and Family minister in Texas, and I came to the conclusion that it is a scary time to be a kid. The world is becoming a meaner place, and I think especially for kids. I mean, I remember being a child and a teenager;...

Fruits of the Spirit: Day One

We have been practicing spiritual disciplines for a couple of months now, and I think this is a good week to do some assessment. I think it is a good week to figure out where these disciplines might be sinking in and where they might need a little more help. I think a good way to do this is to...

Simplicity: Day Six

I think one of the major problem facing the church today is that we are not involved enough in each others’ lives. Yes, today’s culture is more isolated than really any other culture in history, but I think our busy-ness has a lot to do with that as well. I think we are all just...

Simplicity: Day Five

Richard Foster, the author of Celebration of Discipline, wrote another book titled Freedom of Simplicity. This very convicting book highlights the ways in which a busy and cluttered life eliminate some of our freedom. I remember the days of being shipped from one different practice and...
