A Note From Dale

I KNEW IT WOULD HAPPEN In my last article, I listed some possible names or titles people could call me. There was one I suggested I not be called. Remember? It begins with a d___. No, it’s not dummy. I do get called that but seldom to my face. The Sunday after the article three persons called me by that name but many more called me “The New Guy” – the heading of the article. One person called me “Rabbi,” which is an honorable title. It means “Teacher.” Several have started calling me … [Read more...]

It’s About The Journey

Since the first of the year, I have committed to make time for my morning walks. I had neglected these walks for some months, and eaten with abandon as the pounds multiplied. As the New Year began, I knew something had to change or I would be buying “another” wardrobe to keep up with my ever expanding waist line.

These walks are not only a … [Read more...]

Swimming With The Sharks

My Dad was a huge fisherman. We fished all the time. He loved to go lobstering. One time he took my brother and me to the Marquesas Islands (actually part of the Keys).

The water around The Marquesas is relatively shallow and great for fishing and lobstering. My dad bought something called an “Aqua Buoy.” It was a gas powered … [Read more...]

A Note From Dale Huff

You can call me “Huff” but not “Huffy,” unless I am acting that way. You can call me “Preacher” or “Rev.” You can call me “Brother” as Chris Green did last Sunday. Just don’t call me “Dimples.” Privilege What a privilege it is for Lanelle and me to be with you during this transition time. The longer we are here the more impressed we … [Read more...]

A Note From Dan

For the past three weeks we have had rainy Sundays, but the spirit in our worship and Bible Study has been anything but rainy. God has really rained down His spirit on us as we have worshiped together. Sunday we were reminded of a familiar passage in Mark chapter 2 of the men who took the paralyzed man to Jesus. Because of the crowd they could not even get close to Jesus so they lowered him through the roof. They went to great extremes to get him to Jesus. We were reminded by this passage the we … [Read more...]
