One of the first disciples introduced in the Gospel of John is a man by the name of Simon.  He has been brought to Jesus by his brother Andrew.  When Jesus meets Simon, something very unusual happens; Jesus says, others may call you Simon, but I am going to call you Peter.  It is not […]

“There are so many things that were just amazing about this trip, one of the most amazing things that I was able to experience was working at the Mercy Church. It was a fairly easy going group of homeless and homed citizens worshiping, eating, and socializing together. Anyway, we went there the first day and everyone […]



It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Paul writes those words to the early church and for us today.  When I hear the word freedom, I associate it with the freedom won to govern ourselves nearly 240 years ago.  Freedom means independence.  As Americans, we treasure that freedom we have to govern […]

Where Were You?

When I was growing up, the question often asked us was, where were you when President Kennedy was assassinated?  I remember that day because I was home sick watching television, and the program was interrupted by news reporter Walter Cronkite. Today when we ask the question, “Where were you?”, most of our minds go back […]

A Painted Prayer…

As a freshman at Davidson College, I remember the first time I was invited to “Thursday Night Worship,” an entirely student-led worship service held every Thursday night at 10 PM in the sanctuary of Davidson College Presbyterian Church.
