A Joyful Heart

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

"A joyful heart is good medicine," so says Proverbs 17:22.  What does it mean to have a joyful heart? Well, the rest of verse 22 says, "but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."  A joyful heart is the opposite of a crushed spirit. A crushed spirit is a despairing soul, one who has no...

I believe

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

For our Liturgy reflection today we are looking at the Creed, specifically the Nicene Creed and why we confess it during the Divine Service. There are three ecumenical or universal creeds, the Apostle's, The Nicene, and the Athanasian Creed. However, the creed that is associated with the Divine...

No one likes being disciplined. No child wakes up wanting to get a spanking, nor does a teenager want cellphone privileges taken away. No young adult wants to get fired, and the veteran at work doesn't desire to get yelled at for making the same mistakes over and over again. In short, no one...
