The “I AM,” the Flesh-and-Bone God for Us

In many ways, our lives are all about knowing God.  For this to be, we must understand Jesus, God’s Son, as God incarnate, for “no one comes to the Father except through [Him]” (John 14:6).  Still, how can this take place for us creatures born separated from God (Ephesians 2:12)?  The Scriptures of God reveal […]

Making Sense of God when Our World Doesn’t

This is our pastor’s newsletter for November 2018.   In our grief, we sigh, “Why, Lord?”  Such words formed in my mouth when Dean Webb died, with Sandy, his wife, a short time later.  Today, as I write this article, I still am grappling with losing them both.  Though I am a pastor, God sends […]
