September 13, 2015, text: James 3:1-12, theme: “Watch Your Tongue”

To get your day off to a clean start there’s nothing quite like the taste of a freshly opened bar of Ivory Soap.  They used to advertise that it was 99 and 44/100ths % pure.  Didn’t taste like that to me way back when I was about 5 or 6 years old.  I can remember the kitchen well enough where the deed took place, but I can’t remember at all what it was I’d said.  I do remember the taste, and I’ve never been a fan of Ivory ever since.  Most likely what I had said was something bad or so my mother thought.  Ever after I’ve avoided the fresh taste of Ivory, though I do recall a few times my dad having to say, “Watch your tongue.”

Aug. 30/15, text: Ephesians 6:10-20, theme: “Stand Firm”

I think it was May of 2000, Carole and I, with her sister and brother-in-law, were touring Newfoundland – staying in Bed and Breakfasts along the way.  We spent one night in Buena Vista – with a snow crab fisherman and his family.  Their place was right on the peninsula at the end of which, high on a prominent point, stood an old but functioning lighthouse.  Off to the side at the base there was a statue of John Cabot or – in actuality – Giovanni Caboto.  It was a very windy day but we drove over to take a closer look.   I suggested to my brother-in-law that we should get his picture by Giovanni so we got out of the car and were almost blown off the point.  Emilio stood at the bottom step, the wind filling his jacket like a full sail as he held on for dear life lest the wind topple him.  I likewise had some issues.   Trying to stand firm, holding on to a camera, keeping it steady with one hand, grasping for the rail with the other while my feet continually shuffled just so I’d stay upright was no easy matter.  I’m not sure if there are any kind of shoes that would have made it easier.  In the end the picture wasn’t the greatest either.

Our Faith

We Believe

We believe that there is only one true God, Who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Father is the creator of everything that exists. The Son is Jesus the Savior. The Holy Spirit inspired the entire Bible. It is the errorless Word of God that brings God's message of love and hope for all people. We accept that Scripture is accurately and faithfully interpreted in the documents contained in the Book of Concord.

When you get an “E” for effort it suggests you’ve at least tried but likely didn’t do all that well.  When the needle on your fuel gauge reaches “E” you know you’re being warned and not commended.  I’ve heard that with the price of gas up and down of late some people are investing in only half a tank hoping the price will go down.  Should they run out of gas in rush hour they may find themselves hoping there’s enough fumes to coast into the next service station.  Maybe you’ve been there, done that, but hoped in vain.

The Difference Love Makes

Recently I was going for my usual Saturday night walk before I preach and finding it especially difficult to see the good news in the message I was about to share with the congregation. There are times when it is easy to find the right words, and other times when all my words sound forced and laboured. And try as I might in those times, I just cannot pull myself up by my bootstraps, and make it better.

As I walked, I prayed, asking God to help me do a good job finishing the sermon. I prayed hard, because it was getting late and I was becoming stressed. But God didn’t respond by dropping the last page of the message out of the sky into my up-stretched arms like I imagined.

Ask and you will receive doesn’t always work with moms – in fact quite often it doesn’t. It’s especially true it seems if it was something you thought you really, really needed. All the kids at school had one, and if you didn’t get one just like it – well, you were simply going to die. And if she said, “Go ask your father” - well forget it. You knew she’d already got to him and you didn’t stand a chance.
