June 10 – Salvation Only $100

#161of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney Salvation Only $100 “Get your Salvation Here. Only $100. You can do whatever you want”. “Step right up. It’s so easy, anyone can do it”. Ok, so the first one isn’t true, the second is, but let me give you a little bit of backstory. I am pretty naive and gullible. I’ve been that way my whole […]

April 22 – When God isn’t enough

#112of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney For the past 111 days, I’ve written about the power of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I’ve challenged you to listen to his Word and live by it. I’ve given many examples of his involvement in my life. But what happens when God isn’t enough? IllI answer that, at least for me in a little bit. […]

April 16 – Calling Out

#106of365 #FaithBites #FaithJourney #LavaYou Today’s lesson is about calling out for love, support, and happiness. Today’s lesson is inspired by my oldest daughter and I told her I would give her credit where credit is due. This morning we were watching videos, singing, enjoying each other’s company while waiting for school. During our sing-a-long, one of your favorite videos came […]

March 11 – The Circle of Life

Today’s lesson is on the circle of life. No, I’m not talking about the awesome song from Disney’s “Lion King”, but rather the ages and stages we all go through and the pain and joy associated with them. Today at worship, we experienced so many of these. The beginning of faith in two young children through baptism, the giving of […]

February 23 – (Dis) Abilities

Today’s lesson is about appreciating those with disabilities or other abilities. I admit when I’m driving behind someone going slow I get mad sometimes. When I’m in line at the checkout and someone is going slow, I get impatient. When someone is walking so in front of me, I get impatient and frustrated. (It’s not like the extra 60 seconds […]

January 18 – Warmth and Compassion

Todays Bible Lesson is one on warmth and compassion. I understand God made us all different with different strengths and abilities. I know what we all respond to events differently, some warmer and some cooler. I understand that. There is a line though, in my humble opinion, on common human compassion and sympathy. Giving congratulations, sharing in grief, giving thoughts […]

January 16 – Loss

Todays Bible Lesson is one on loss. Death sucks. On one hand, it is a homecoming. You get to be one with the Lord. His promises of redemption and everlasting life are fulfilled. At the same time, there is emptiness, loss, and loneliness. I learned today of that my grandmother, Nancy Cammarano, passed late last night. She is not in pain […]

January 10 – Letting God Calm You Down

For today’s scripture, I want to share a pop song – Kindly Calm Me Down by Meghan Trainor. I know, what does pop music have to do with scripture and God? While this song is probably about a boyfriend helping her when “the world is loud” or when you feel “so cold, alone, Could you be my blanket”?, I think […]
