    One Person Can Make a Difference

    Thu, Nov 21, 2013
    When recently visiting my Mother, on a dresser top in one of the bedrooms, I noticed a notepad with the following printed on the cover:   One morning a man walked along a beach covered with thousands of starfish that had washed up during a storm.  Now they lay dying in the sun. He saw a young girl picking up the starfish one ...
     

    Veterans Day Video

    Thu, Nov 14, 2013
    It was with great pleasure I was asked to put together a video to honor Veterans.  The video is too large for most to download, but if you are using Windows, I have made a file (.exe)  available to download and run on your PC. Each person in the video is associated with someone in the congregation. Again, THANKS to all veterans ...

      (Lesson taught – 10/14/12) A young man working in the produce department was asked by a lady if she could buy half a head of lettuce.  He replied, “Half a head? Are you serious? God grows these in whole heads and that’s how we sell them!” “You mean,” she persisted, “that after all the years I’ve shopped here, you won’t sell me ...

That’s wonderful.  Because of all the hard work that went into the production, ...
     

    A world we often “look” at, but very seldom “see”…….

    Sat, Feb 11, 2012
    I love to take pictures and a few years ago I decided to try “macro photography” (closeups). Once I got started, I couldn’t stop. I’ve at times thought we “look” at the world around us, but don’t actually “see” it, and I was right.. God has created a wonderful, fabulous place for us to live, but we as humans often ...
     

    Baptism – Are You All Wet?

    Tue, Jan 31, 2012
    Before reading this lesson, I highly suggest you read Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth  first (if you have not already done so). It seems today there are few things in doctrine more controversial than baptism.  I wonder if people really study the Word of God for themselves or simply believe everything they hear?  We at First UPC are in the ...
     

    Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth

    Tue, Jan 24, 2012
      The Word of God is important in our lives and must be studied correctly,  our souls depend on it.  Here is a lesson I taught a few years ago on “Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth”.   Isa 28:9       Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk………. Isa 28:10     For ...
