Friday December 27, 2013 Hi Folks, As a kid I remember listening to the Steve Miller Band perform the song Fly Like An Eagle.

Friday December 20, 2013 Hi Folks, It isn’t often that I am called upon to cook a meal in our home, but today Louise was busy with many things and asked that I make supper. She had already planned the meal so I didn’t have to think about what I would create. The meal was

Friday December 13, 2013 Hi Folks, Have you ever noticed how much junk you can accumulate? I have been tasked by my lovely wife to clean the garage after this email is sent! As I assessed the project I wondered “How did we accumulate so much junk since the last time I cleaned the garage?”

Saturday November 30th, 2013 Hi Folks, I hope you all enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving Day and had opportunity to think about the things that have been a blessing to you this past year. I was reminded at the Thanksgiving Eve service, as Pastor Dave Rosenberger shared the evening message, that we are all blessed people

Friday 22 November 2013 Hi Folks As we approach the holiday season, first Thanksgiving and then Christmas, we are called to remember the many blessing we receive in our lives as a result of God’s providence. The opposite too often seems to be the case, as we focus on the things we do! This inevitably

Friday November 8th, 2013 NOTE: I want to take a moment to address an inaccurate comment I made last week in my Friday email. I wrote in that email “Miracle Sunday has been a vehicle for the churches fundraising over the last few years (correct information) yet those monies not only paid on the Field

Friday November 1st, 2013 Hi Folks, I want to use this email to share some of my thoughts on our journey together. As I listen to different people share their opinions, feelings, or concerns about the Journey of Faith we are on together, I have come to understand that everyone is not on the same

Friday October 18th, 2013 Hi Folks, Every year the congregation at Mill-Green sets aside a Sunday to receive a special offering. Miracle Sunday 2013 is scheduled for Sunday October 27th and you will be asked to make a pledge, gift, commitment, promise, or whatever word you choose to use when you share your monetary gift.

Friday October 4th, 2013 Hi Folks, The last two days haven’t been kind to me. I haven’t been feeling well, have no energy, been sleeping more than normal, headaches and generally feeling poorly (are you feeling sorry for me yet? LOL). We all know that our physical bodies go through times when viruses invade and

Friday September 27th, 2013 Hi Folks, It’s Friday afternoon and I am sitting in the airport terminal waiting until 10:45 pm to fly out to Harrisburg. I’m finishing this email which I started this morning. Many of you have been through a John Ortberg study and this morning I had opportunity to sit in the

Hi Folks, I walked into the corner convenience store today to get a coffee and as I was checking out I realized that I didn’t have my wallet. (I had just used the ATM machine at the bank and placed my wallet on the seat of the car.) I told the cashier I had to

Friday Sept. 13th, 2013 Hi Folks, Chris’s birthday is Sept 18th and he wanted a metal detector for a birthday gift. We were able to find a reasonably priced detector and got it for him early so he could unearth hidden treasures. So far Chris has found some old coins, a face plate to an
