Escaping the Rut

Escaping the Rut

I fell into a rut a few weeks ago – perhaps even many weeks ago. I think the minimal face-face contact with people was getting to me. I started contacting a few people to make a couple home visits but had to really push myself just to “dial” the phone. This week, however, after the third straight visit ended with the individual saying to me, “Thanks, I really needed this,” I felt God raising me out of the rut.

Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday

2020 has been particularly difficult for everyone who has lost a loved one, either through COVID-19 or for other reasons. STL will be using our worship services on Sunday, November 22 to address our grief with the hope we have in Christ. Along with listing the names of loved ones lost in 2020, all who worship with us in-person will be invited to place a carnation on the altar during a special time of meditation and prayer in the service.

An Age of Outrage

An Age of Outrage

It is dangerous – I know – to comment on a book, but I am over halfway through it, so I am willing to take the risk. The book is “Christians in the Age of Outrage – How to bring our best when the world is at its worst”. The author is Ed Stetzer, the dean of the School of Mission, Ministry, and Leadership at Wheaton College – and the holder of the Billy Graham Distinguished Chair of the Church.
