I Love My Church Because It Makes a Difference in My Faith
Ephesians 4:4-6, 11-15

Let me ask you a question. Why did you become a Christian instead of a becoming a Buddhist, a Hindu, a Muslim or a Jew? Did you sit down and logically compare the merits of all religions and conclude that Christianity was superior? I doubt it. Did you embrace Christianity because an angel appeared and led you to a golden throne? Probably not. Were you simply born with the knowledge of Christianity? I don’t think so.

When Faith Doesn't Feel
Psalm 13

There’s an old spiritual that goes like this.

Every time I feel the spirit, movin’ in my heart I will pray.
Oh, every time I feel the spirit, movin’ in my heart I will pray./

Kind of catchy, isn’t it? In fact, just singing the song kind of makes you feel the spirit.

When Real Faith Gets Naked
Mark 9:14-27

I went to the Tomato Festival yesterday and, as always, the outing was an educational experience. While there, I talked to one of the vendors who made signs and one particular sign caught my attention. It simply read, “Get Buck Naked.”

I was sitting on a window ledge in my foyer, feeling really stupid, but I decided I would feel even more stupid if I fell and broke my leg.

Hooray for Failing Faith
Matthew 14:22-32

Her name was Kathy Stevens and she was prettiest girl in the junior class. She sat beside me in Social Studies and by the end of our junior year we had gotten to be good friends. When the junior-senior prom rolled around, I decided to ask Kathy to be my date.
