Transition Time

Late August and early September is a huge transition time for many of us. Most of  the transition has to do with kids but there’s an awful lot of other types of transition going on as well. Let’s start with some of the incidental stuff, summer activities for example. They come to a screeching halt. […]

Summer at Home

Last summer I wrote an article for the Greeter about how important it was to stay connected to God when we were away on vacation and how important it was to find your way into God’s house for worship on Sunday morning.

Wednesday at the Office

My favorite day at the church office is Wednesday. Now the other days at the office aren’t bad. There’s always lots and lots of little guys and their teachers working together at our excellent pre-school and that by itself is a ton of fun to watch. Then there’s Mary Raudenbush, our church secretary, bustling about, […]

Post-Christmas Blues

The holiday season will soon be over. The bright lights of Christmas will disappear. The decorations will come down and be stored away. The Christmas gifts will have all been handed out and even the New Year’s celebration will be over. The noisemakers, the Times Square New Year’s Ball, the parades, the bowl games will […]

Making Xmas Disappear

For years we’ve seen the fabricated word Xmas in newspapers, on television, anywhere there is advertising. Some creative advertising genius came up with it years ago as a simple substitute for Christmas because it would save print space, cut back on number of letters used and as a result–Voila–save money. Well, it annoyed a lot […]
