Chickens…what was I thinking?

They are not too smart. Their feed costs far exceeds what I would ever eat in eggs. They reside in my back yard, clucking away, laying eggs and teaching me a lot about our relationship with God. You know, if my chickens could ever work together, their lives would be so much better, but they only look after themselves. Periodically, I will let them roam around the yard. They are never still. They are constantly running, flapping and going from one place to the other. If one of them finds … [Read more...]

Walk God’s Way…

As many of you know, I grew up in a small country town located in Conecuh County about 100 miles south of Montgomery. My Father was a farmer.

With what are we Filled?

Sunday, Dr. Dale Huff had a very inspiring, challenging and convicting sermon as we seek God’s leadership in the search for a new senior pastor. He challenged us to “grow” during this interim.

Dr. Huff’s Scripture passage was Philippians 2:12-13. Consider a portion of this passage.....continue to work out your salvation with … [Read more...]
