As I write this, my Mother's Day is winding down, actually it's been a weekend of family, good food and remanisisting.  When your Mother is no longer with you, holidays are more important, to keep the lost alive in our thoughts and memories and one way to do that is with food. My Mom was a Mum, born and raised in England. She came to the states in her late 20's, alone, to find work. She lived through a time of war, where everything was rationed so there wasn't much for desserts but one English dish lives on with me. The English Trifle was once a basic recipe of lady fingers, pudding, cream and fruit all layered and chilled to blend the flavors. Now, there are so many ways to prepare trifles that I hope the original doesn't ever get lost. One modern version sure caught my eye so I thought I'd share it this week, in honor of my Mum and my English roots this Mother's day. I hope your Mother's Day was everything you wanted plus dessert!  more

As I walked to my car following a very busy Sunday, a man called across our parking lot, “Are you the pastor?” I answered I was one of the church’s pastors and asked what he needed. He began crying as he told me this sad story. He had been hired by a lady in a subdivision near our building to cut down a tree in her front yard. They agreed on a price, but no formal contract was drawn up. However, as he completed the job, she called the police, claiming he had cut down her tree, and she did not know why. According to him, the police refused to get involved, explaining it was a dispute over a relatively small sum of money and there was no contract. The gentleman said the police officers were very kind to him, but he was not paid and was relying on the money from the job for his rent. I bought him something to eat and drove him home. more

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.” Psalm 28:7 (NIV) Our God wants us to trust him. To trust God is to believe in God’s reliability, truth, and strength, and the Bible shows us the many ways God cares for us. Again and again in the scriptures we are encouraged to “trust in the Lord with all our heart.” (Proverbs 3:5) Jesus said that he longed to gather his people and shelter them like a mother hen shelters her chicks under her wings (Matthew 23:37). Our God gave us life, and God provides for us, shelters us, and, through Christ’s sacrifice, saves us. This is the Good News of God’s love in Jesus Christ. May we trust God in all things and experience the peace he offers, the peace that passes all understanding. May God bless your week!

The time has come for a real, honest conversation about faith. Not the tidy Sunday school version, but the gritty, everyday kind that has you wrestling with doubts before your morning coffee. In the world of Christianity, faith is often seen as this gold standard—a measure of how tight you are with the Big Guy upstairs. The more unshakeable your faith, the closer you're perceived to be to the divine. It's like spiritual street cred. For some, faith is as natural as breathing. They hear "God created the Earth and everything on it, and Jesus died for our sins," and they nod along, no questions asked. To them, it's as obvious as the nose on your face. more
