    In just a week and a half we will be leaving for our mission trip in Mexico, helping to build an orphanage for Tapestries of Life ministries that will house more than 200 orphans from the streets of Juarez.  We are grateful for the support that has been raised through donations from friends and family…

    I tapped a few trees this past week – five maples and two birches. Most years I tap shortly after Valentine’s Day, but this year has been unusually cold (in case you hadn’t noticed). It will be a shortened sap season. But now that the temperatures are beginning to rise above freezing during the day,…

    I just got back from a pastor’s conference.  First one since I returned to pastoral ministry in June, but reminiscent of the many pastor’s conferences I went to as a fresh faced pastor just out of seminary.  It was held at the church we attended in Syracuse before moving here last year, so it was…

    Last week I suggested you consider participating in Lent by subtracting in order to add.  I hope you’ve taken me up on the suggestion.  I have only participated in Lent a few years, but have found the practice meaningful and enriching.  Each of the last four years my practice has been different.  This year I…

    Cottage Use Guidelines 2017 Purpose & Use of the Cottage: The cottage belongs to the Lord, and He has made it possible to be used for ministry here in Inlet.

    Lent began today, barely eliciting a ripple in my ecclesiastical tradition.  The churches I have been involved in haven’t really promoted Lent.   Too Catholic for our Evangelical Protestantism.  I’m afraid we’ve thrown the baby out with the bath water.  But a few years ago I dipped my toes into the water  to try it out. …

    We’ve been in a series that is exploring the big picture of the Bible.  We are tracing the main story arc of Scripture, and discovering major themes.  This last Sunday we introduced the monarchy, a topic we will explore more over the next two weeks.  We saw how the request for a king is implicitly…

    So it started about a week ago.  I woke up in the middle of the night with an idea needling me.  I had read the Adirondack Express earlier in the day, with a front page article entitled “Carving Out Memories” announcing a new snow sculpture contest to benefit the Tayler Schmid fund.  I awoke with…

    This will take a little preparation.  First, I need you to take some scrap paper and tear it up into tiny bits.  If you have a shredder, this would be the time to use it.  A small pile will do.  Place these scraps in a mound right beside you.  Then I need everyone reading this…

    I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends.  I am writing from Michigan enjoying the tail end of a few days with Sue’s mother and brothers.  It has been a restful time but we are looking forward to getting back to Inlet and anticipating a wonderful new year of ministry.  I…

    I know we are already one week into the new year, and if may be too late for resolutions, but allow me to commend to you the single most significant habit of my life.  Since the time I was in High School, I have made a point to carve out some time each day to…

    It has been a wintry week with cold and snow.  I’m enjoying it immensely.  I laced up the skates on Saturday for some ice hockey with a bunch of teens at Fern Park.  I kept up (barely), but could feel it in my legs the next couple days.  On Monday, Sue and I went cross…
