Expressing Love

After Noah Robert Yeldell’s birth on October 25, I shared from the pulpit the joy of our new grandson. I also want to put in print my gratitude for how our church loves our children and grandchildren. Of course, they love you. My daughter and son, who live in Ohio, as well as Kristin, have […]

Prayer For Government Leaders

During this election time, Christian citizens must remember that we are to pray “For kings and all those in authority that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” (1 Timothy 2:2). Even if we do not agree with them and their decisions, that is all the more reason to pray […]

Christian Citizenship

We are allowed the precious privilege of being a Christian citizen in a free country. Our system of self-government assures that we have some voice in the affairs of the nation, but God wants His “will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven” (Matthew 6:10). As a church, we are not seeking […]


Most of us were thrilled if we were ever accepted into any college. However, Kawasi Enin, a high school student from New York, was accepted by all eight Ivy League universities (including Harvard, Princeton, and Yale).

Our state is indeed, “breaking bad,” with a majority polling in favor of the amendment. This opens the door for recreational “pot.” The law would be […]

Coming Home

Before the Communists and their dictator broke their hold on Romania, a family from that country, consisting of seven members and spanning three generations, did something unusual in our nation’s capital. They approached a guard and uttered the word, “asylum.” We can understand why people living under such evil domination would want the freedom of […]

Submarine Saints

Submarines form an integral part of the United States defense force in our Naval fleet. They thrive on the ability to avoid detection by remaining submerged, sometimes for two or three months. Radar penetrates ocean depths imperfectly. Even during World War II, German U-boats sneaked around our coastline and even up Chesapeake Bay. I cannot […]

Naples Christmas Spectacular

Our church has historically desired to be like a sailboat that tacks with the wind of God’s Spirit, no matter which direction He blows and works. Our church sought to be like “the men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what to do” (1 Chronicles 12:32). Our Pastor of Worship and Music, Dr. […]
