Think About This

A few months ago I heard about a revolutionary new concept called vicarious dieting.  It goes something like this: you watch what you eat and exercise faithfully and I lose weight. That sounds good to me, if only it were possible. The word vicarious refers to something that one person does for...

Think About This

The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt stands as a monument to the pride of one man: the Pharaoh Cheops. He wanted to be remembered and I don’t think there are any vanity projects that top his. To say that it’s enormous would be an understatement.  The base of the pyramid covers 13 acres. It is...

Think About This

Every year the Merriam-Webster’s dictionary chooses a word of the year. In 2016 that word was “surreal.”  They chose “surreal” because it was looked up significantly more frequently in 2016 than in previous years, and because there were multiple occasions on which “surreal” was the one word...

Think About This

Today is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. It is a time to remember his role in the struggle for civil rights in America. This past year has been a difficult one for racial relations in America.  The bruising political campaign of last year seems to have divided us as a nation even more deeply...

Think About This

In 1961 British theologian J.B. Phillips wrote a small book with an intriguing title: Your God Is Too Small.  In it he outlines our human tendency to remake God in our own image; to expect that He will work like some ideal human being. To that end some see Him as a celestial policeman...

Think About This

Our amazing God has created all creatures with a wide variety of ears that can hear. Some, like turtles don’t have exterior ears but interior canals, but they can still hear. Bees don’t have ears, but they hear through the vibrations on their legs and antennae. All animals can hear, but not all...

Think About This

There is something about Christmas that brings out the worst in Americans. Take for instance Centerville Elementary School in Lancaster County, Pa. The school’s fifth graders have been performing “A Christmas Carol” for decades. But this year the play was canceled because two parents complained...

Think About This

Last year about this time I wrote a Communique about funny church signs at Christmas. We all got a few chuckles from them. Well, I’m back with more this year and things have gotten a little testy out there.  Here are (sadly) real church signs seen this year. --Welcome semi-annual worshippers....

Think About This

THINK ABOUT THIS Our church’s focus for the coming year (starting now) is outreach. We want to help people come to faith in Christ and come to our church. We want to build the kingdom of God and Community Church.  To that end I will be devoting much of my efforts towards planning events and...

Think About This

The journalist who published this article on the Woolacombe Bay Hotel in Devon, England thought he’d spent enough time proof-reading only to be undone by technology. The article describing a Christmas hotel package read:  "Their three-night Christmas break includes a packed program of family...
