Amy Patterson – “My Thoughts”

Posted on December 9, 2014 at 2:16 pm

The internet has ruined us… I’m pretty sure. One fortunate thing about the onslaught of craziness on the interwebs the last few weeks is that it’s been quite enlightening on who should be on my Facebook friends list and who should not. First there was Ferguson. The amount of shameless judgement, racism, and finger-pointing I witnessed online made me sick. I won’t try to claim that I’m not a judgemental

    Posted on December 9, 2014 at 2:00 pm

    After the angel announced the birth of Jesus to the shepherds the Bible says: “And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men” (Luke 2:13-14, KJV). I wouldn’t want to pick a fight with a sky full of angels, but I must admit that I’ve wondered about

    I have to give credit where credit is due: Thugs are opportunistic people; that’s for sure. In light of this week’s…incidents…in Ferguson, I find myself reflecting on those sly individuals who saw an excuse to do some early Christmas shopping, as well as the poor people of St. Louis, our government leaders, and America as a whole.

    Small-town communities really blow me away sometimes. Over the weekend, Justin and I had the fortunate opportunity to spend some time with our extended family that we see all too rarely. We were excited. Unfortunately, the reason we were paying this visit was not a happy one. One of Justin’s youngest cousins, a three-year-old, sweet baby girl, was recently diagnosed with Leukemia.

    By Pastor Dawn Marie Turner   As many of us cough, sniffle, and sneeze our way through fall, we forget to look at the beauty of the changing season as we are caught in the ugliness of mucous, tissues, and over the counter medications.

    Everyone goes through times of trials and adversity. Even though you might not be in a dark valley now, all of us will go through those valleys. Even in our darkest valleys, our darkest days, God is there.  “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”  (Psalm 23:4)
