Church Signs

Every now and then I see some really bad church signs. In fact, the church down the street from us has a large gate in front of their building and driveway with large "No Parking"'s not too inviting.

Two weeks ago I worked in the city of Woonsocket, Rhode Island, a small city located in the northern part of the state just south of the Massachusetts border.

While there I ate most of my meals at the Patriot's Diner (a small diner, with lots of chrome and Valentine's Day balloons). And there, I enjoyed hearing the wonderful Rhode Island accents of the waitresses asking me if I wanted cawfee, sweetened tea, etc.

Driving around Woonsocket, I drove into the Massachusetts town of Blackstone. There, at St. Theresa's Catholic Church I saw one of my favorite Church signs, it said simply:

The Mystery of Faith
Christ has died
Christ has risen
Christ will come again

A perfect sign for any church.

Free Journey - Week #1

I taught this past Sunday at the Mason Vineyard to kick off a new series on freedom in Christ.

My message was about the "Foundations of Freedom" - how freedom in Christ is rooted in the message of the Gospel.

Their website is if you want to take a listen.

A dragonslaying friend

One person I had a chance to meet at the Anglican Mission Winter Conference in January and then again this week in Indianapolis is Fr. Tom Tirman.

Fr. Tom helps to lead seven Anglican fellowships in central Indiana.

The umbrella church and ministry that they have started is called Saint Michael the Archangel Anglican Church. Here is the church's website:

Fr.Tom's blogsite called "Tales of a Faithful Dragonslayer" is located here:

I'm not sure what's all involved in "dragonslaying" but I'm hoping that Fr. Tom can teach me.
