Stories, thoughts and reflections on the Bible from the WSFC Staff.

I’ve had a series of thoughts on my mind for a few days now and I can seem to shake them. I have a feeling that this may likely blossom into a sermon or two in the coming weeks or months, but I’m not sure yet, so I’m just gonna put it out there, in…

The ministry focus and purpose of Jesus was pretty clear-cut. He declared, in no uncertain terms, in Luke 4 by quoting the Prophet Isaiah. “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,  because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.  He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners  and…

Sandy and I have enjoyed the last two months on sabbatical.  Due to the persistent virus, our travel plans had to be cancelled.  We called it our “stay-battical”.  We spent lots of time with our grandkids at our house, their homes, and at the coast.  The coast was awfully foggy – “socked-in”, as Sandy likes…

Do you ever find that sometimes it’s just good to get back to the basics? Basics are usually nothing fancy or shiny or showy.
