Planning

Graham McDonald, March 17 2019

In one of the Indiana Jones movies, there s a seen where he sets out a plan to beat the Nazis to the treasure. Afterwards, it was revealed that the lines were improvised. He didn’t have a plan at all! This is often how it is for us. We make plans, they can fall apart. We prepare carefully, things can go awry. As Burns himself said, “The best laid s...

Knock-Knock

Graham McDonald, March 10 2019

Who’s there? Christian! Christian, who? And there’s the problem. Who knows you are a Christian? How do they know you are a Christian? Do you have to tell others that you are a Christian? Do you wear a wee cross around your neck to drop the hint? Or, does your light so shine that men may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven? (Matthe...

Help!

Graham McDonald, March 3 2019

If Christians aren’t helping others, then we’re not Christians! Making a difference in someone else’s life in a positive way is a demonstration of the faith of a Christian. When asked which of the commandments was the greatest, Jesus was not slow in helping the lawyer answer his own question: “Love God and love your neighbours.” Sadly, the lawyer w...

We Are Church!

Graham McDonald, February 24 2019

Church isn’t a building; it’s people. Those being saved are added to the church, Acts 2:47. The church has a head and a body, Ephesians 1:22-23. The church was purchased with blood, Acts 20:28. Knowing the difference between a building and a group of saved people is important. Knowing what it means to be a group of saved people is far more more imp...

For Sale

Graham McDonald, February 17 2019

Sell the add-ons! That’s the trick to being a good salesman. Someone wants to buy a car? Sell them a service plan! Someone wants to buy a computer? Sell them a printer, ink, & paper. There are big numbers in the main product, but the profit is in the add-ons. For 20 pieces of silver, you could buy a young Jewish boy to sell on as a slave. For 30 pi...

Praying

Graham McDonald, February 10 2019

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” (James 5:16, ESV) Prayer makes a difference. Several studies have shown that those who have faith and pray regularly typically are better off emotionally and physically than those who have...

Men’s Days

Graham McDonald, February 3 2019

February 2nd 2019 was the 10th annual men’s day. We’ve had about 38 different speakers over the years and heard 40 sermons, sung countless songs, and said many prayers. Our ladies have excelled in making the day run smoothly with meals and refreshments. Some amazing gifts have been handed out by way of thanks, and some wonderful memories have been...

Super Blood Wolf Moon

Graham McDonald, January 27 2019

Last week saw the rather incredible phenomenon of a closer than usual moon, eclipsed by the Earth, and in January. Thankfully, it has a rather cooler name than the description suggests. The Bible uses names to get a positive impression across. Isaiah means “salvation by God”; Israel means “prince with God”; Rachel means “innocent lamb”, etc. It was...

No Confidence?

Graham McDonald, January 20 2019

Don’t get me started about Brexit! I don’t want to hear another thing about another referendum. No, I have no idea what “back-stop” means. Our government seems to be more entertaining than the circus these days. All Parliament needs is Hugh Jackman in a red jacket and top hat telling everyone “… all that was real was left behind.”

Apples

Graham McDonald, January 13 2019

Did you know that 90% of the world’s apples have been traced as beginning with two apple trees in Kazakhstan? Apples can taste like strawberries, popcorn, anise, and, well, apples! They are members of the rose family and the seeds contain cyanide. A strange thing about them is that many people think that they are the forbidden fruit that Adam & Eve...
