Quadraphonics – Oct 12

QUADRAPHONICS   To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ (and to all those who want to hear from God),   As we continue to explore the subject of “hearing God,” we need to stop and ask the question, ‘how does He speak to us?’   But before we answer that question, I want to share with you a word that I’ve been using a lot around my church lately; quadraphonics.   Def: Sound transmitted through four channels.   It is actually an old word. It was...

Superman or Clark Kent? – Sept 28

To the Called-Out Ones of Jesus Christ,   Last week we started to explore the subject of hearing from God. We saw that even though it may seem at times that God is distant, even hiding from us, that it is we (all of mankind) who have been hiding from Him. And, that any distance that we feel between us and Him is most likely due to our hiding from Him, not because He is not there for us. In fact, He has been pursuing us, speaking to us, since...

Hide and Seek – Who’s Hiding from Whom? – September 14

Hide and Seek – Who’s Hiding from Whom? To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ (and to all those looking for what is real), Do you remember playing the game Hide & Seek when you were a child? How fun it was to hide and try to be the last one found? I don’t know about you but I didn’t particularly like to be the seeker because you had to do it by yourself and, especially if it was dark, it was kind of scary because you never knew when...

The Problem with Love Today – August 3

The Problem with Love Today To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ (and to those who seek a better way of living), Besides the obvious overuse of the word love – we “love” ice cream, the Seahawks and our dog or cat, etc. – which has diluted its meaning; have you noticed or experienced a further and more profound problem with love as it is understood and “practiced” today? Speaking in terms of human...

A Life Well Lived – June 9

A Life Well Lived To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ (and those looking for purpose in their lives), As most of you know, I began serving as an interim pastor of a local church here in Yakima in January of this year. Next Thursday I will be doing my first funeral service and this has prompted some thoughts about the meaning and purpose of our lives here on earth and what defines a well-lived life. I didn’t know the man whose...

Facing the Opposition – May 4

To the Saved Ones of Jesus Christ (and to all those desiring the good life), One of the early dreamers of the Bible was Joseph. He overcame herculean obstacles that were attempting to divert him from fulfilling his dream as a presence carrier and a man of purpose. His journey alerts us to the challenges we are likely to face. His enemies – his brothers in the flesh, but who knows the identity of his unseen spiritual opposition – first tried...

Experiencing Salvation – April 14

To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ, Experiencing Salvation To the Saved Ones of Jesus Christ (and to all those desiring the good life),  Over the last few years I have asked myself and those involved in Transform Yakima Together, what does transformation look like? How would we know if it were happening, if it was? And, what does the bible say about it? And, how is that related to the prayer we pray (The Lord’s Prayer), asking for...

Easter – The Turning Point – April 7

To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ, To the Called Out Ones of Jesus Christ (and to all those wanting positive change in their lives and the world), Last Sunday we celebrated Easter – Resurrection Sunday. It was a beautiful time together as a Church body and knowing that hundreds of millions of Christians were celebrating this together around the world. Turning points happen everywhere in life, in nature and in history. Some are...
