11 Oct: Dreams on Eagles’ Wings

This past week, I woke up one morning to the sad news of the passing of legendary rock guitarist Eddie Van Halen. For a middle-aged man who grew up in the 80′s and 90s it was quite melancholic for me. He truly was a guitar virtuoso and rock legend. One of the most iconic music videos I remember watching as a kid was a video to Van Halen’s song Dreams, which featured the US Navy’s precision flying squadron, the Blue Angels.

13 Apr: DEFINITELY the People, NOT the Building!

There are some silver linings in this pandemic, one being us able to see more clearly what is truly essential for our lives compared to what may not be as essential as we thought. If there ever was a doubt, I believe that there isn’t one now. The people of God gathering regularly to worship the Lord together is essential. Now I’m very grateful for technology to hold us over but I think we can all attest to the fact that virtual services are not, nor can ever be, anything more than a placeholder.
