Good Work?

by Brad

A construction company in Detroit has as their motto, “We do good work.” It’s a catchy phrase that grabs your attention. The company uses the slogan on the radio and with television adds which has given them great success. That makes me wonder, do I do good work, does the church do good work, and […]

After Easter

by Brad

Resurrection Sunday was phenomenal! I hope you enjoyed seeing the church packed. How wonderful would it be if that could be the case every week? Well, it can, we just have to get busy inviting!

He Lives

by Brad

Looking unto Jesus

by Brad

Well friends, I’m back! Maybe not the words you where looking for. At any rate, I had a good few days away. As I was away I learned something; there are a lot of things to distract us from what we should truly be focused on. Our world is loud and chaotic and the noise […]

According to history.com, Independence Day, better known as the July 4th has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution (1775-83).

Not of Us

Flowers are often composed of artificial things mixed in with the real deal and artificial things are counterfeit.
