A clean slate for the new year

This article is scheduled to appear on January 3, so my “Happy New Year!” wishes are a couple days late, but they come from the heart, nonetheless. It’s transition time. As the adage goes, “out with the old, in with the new!” The 2019...

Out Our Way: The Christmas Chinook - Luke 1:1-10

Out our way winter, can be harsh, but as Charlie often reminded me, it is a small price to pay for the glories of spring, summer and winter on the Hi-Line. And although we do have the infamous “Alberta Clippers” that can drop several feet of...

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, why we write “Xmas” instead of “Christmas,” the short-hand way, got us curious; so, we stopped at the library. A book of origins explained some of the things we do at Christmas. One reference stated: “If you wonder why...

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

You know, Lord, sometimes we just seem to get stressed out, and doesn't please You, right? "Marsha" shared how she stays on top of things and is relaxed amid the holiday rush. She called them the "Fou...

 

Pastor's Corner: Christmas is not here yet

It’s not the Christmas season. Liturgically speaking, anyway. For much of the Western Christian tradition, the beginning of December marked the beginning of the season of Advent. As my “high church” minded friends are inclined to remind with...

Out Our Way: Giving thanks - 1Chronicles 16:8-36

Pastor's Corner: An attitude of gratitude
