CROP Walk feeds Manatee’s hungry

The first words of Jesus as he began his ministry were a quote from the Prophet Isaiah, 18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." (Luke 4, NRSV)

Thoughts on proper church etiquette

Over the Christmas and New Year holidays, I was able to visit other churches for some of their special services. It was quite an eye-opener, and it’s clearly apparent that church etiquette has changed over the years. It seemed that many of today’s churchgoers have never been taught exactly what behavior is properly respectful of God’s house and respectful of the other people in attendance. So on behalf of my fellow pastors everywhere, here are a few thoughts for consideration:

Synagogue hosts unusual tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

What might make Sunday’s tribute at Temple Emanu-El feel special is the presence of the Rev. Charles McKenzie from Bradenton, who will perform excerpts from four of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s most famous speeches. Some say when they close their eyes and listen to McKenzie, it’s like King is in the room with them.

The blessings of living in a loving neighborhood

This past Sunday, I took a break from preaching, having given it over to a trusted friend and leader in our young church. Because I wasn’t preaching, and was technically “off,” I chose to arrive on time and leave shortly after the conclusion of the service around 11:15 a.m.
