    Scripture tells us in no uncertain terms that while God is good and created all things good, there is a counterpart. Evil exists in our world. As Jesus said, “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy.”

      My mom, who went to be with the Lord on April 20, was always connecting people. Since her death, I’ve been delighted to hear so many stories about how she introduced someone to someone or to something. She was welcoming and hospitable to all...

        My mom, Kathryn, was terrific. I’m delighted so many of you knew her, even though her last few years were compromised due to her memory loss. She loved the Lord and His church. We eagerly await being reunited. As we say in our Communion service...

          Kathryn Harrison, my mom, went to be with the Lord early this morning. We will be celebrating her life this Saturday at 1 pm in the Sanctuary. Thank you to so many of you for making her years at Asbury so meaningful. In lieu of flowers, memorial...

            “Is Loving Jesus an adjective or a verb?” is what John Vick asked about our new sermon series. If it’s an adjective, it means Jesus is loving. If it’s a verb, it means His followers are to love Him. “Loving Jesus” is actually both an adjective...

                This is our week. Actually, it’s Jesus’ week, but we’re invited to His party. Can you imagine the absolute joy that was so overwhelming and shocking when the disciples heard, “He is Risen!”? What a surreal experience. They could not believe it...
