Facing the Dragon

Can the Church be the Church without Children present? This week we look at Luke 18:15-17 when Jesus admonishes his disciples for keeping children away.

All of us deal with stress and anxiety at some level. For some it can be debilitating, for others a sleepless night, for others apathy and indifference.

Flood Relief Effort Update

I think it is important to capture, and where appropriate celebrate, the state of the flood relief effort as of Monday, July 20, 2015. Almost immediately following the flood on Sunday evening July 12, WV UM Disaster Response Team called me to make plans for the delivery of flood buckets and emergency supplies to the […]

Moving Forward

Today will be my first Sunday at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church. I have very mixed feelings as I step in the Sanctuary for the first time. I have one goal for today, not to throw-up on the nice Sanctuary carpet! I have feelings of great anticipation and excitement at the opportunity to work with […]


Listen to Your Soul

In the movie Gladiator, the dying emperor Marcus Aurelius, asks Maximus, Marcus: “Why are we here?”  Maximus: “For the glory of Rome” Marcus: “What is Rome, Maximus?” Maximus: “I have seen much of the world, and it is cold, and dark.
