Destiny Boy

Seated at my table on a recent afternoon I noticed this beautiful painting we have hanging on the wall right behind our Christmas tree. The painting’s name is “Destiny Boy” showing boy Jesus playing with three nails in Joseph’s carpenter shop, from an anonymous author and you can easily find it online. We’ve had it […]

Angel Tree Report

It has been fun to see a new Christmas outreach ministry thrive here at Evergreen. At the encouragement of Randy and Donella Schmidt, we took on Angel Tree, with the hope of being the light of Christ to families in our community who were separated due to incarceration.

A Name and a Story

Every day except Monday, I drive to church, and I admit there are usually trace amounts of anxiety in my heart as I pull into the parking lot. I never know what I am going to find. I’m not talking about lost Awana materials or a stray football forgotten after youth group. Those are actually […]

A Measly Meal

This year for thanksgiving, in large part because my Sister-in-law is a phenomenal cook, our contribution to the feast was a small appetizer and a simple salad. As I brought in what felt like a measly offering compared to the wide array of delicious looking entrées being prepared, I confess feeling a little bit silly. […]

Testimonies were shared, we prayed to God and thanked Him for all His goodness and blessings; we had a beautiful time of worship as well as meditation on God’s Word. The […]

I feel like I’ve been helped, challenged, and encouraged through what John wrote in those three letters, and I’m thankful for brothers in the Lord to process it […]

We Shall Have Spring Again

Fall is deepening, and the hostas in our newly refinished planter boxes are now fully wilted. In fact, they’re downright slimy, and they make a heavy schlop sound as they hit the bottom of my debris bucket. Even with gloves on, I wrinkle my nose at the feel, and I marvel at how quickly these […]

At the Heart of our Prayers for Israel

As is the case for many of you, my heart is breaking at the news of war in the middle east between the state of Israel and Palestine. The reports of kidnapping, torture and murder from the terrorist group known as Hamas is beyond sickening – it’s deplorable. And as Israel seeks to defend it’s […]

The Family of God

Between late September and mid-October the Lord gave me some good opportunities to be close to other brothers and sisters in Christ that are also serving God in other cities of Washington and other states and countries around the globe. My involvement with Action International (a missions agency that networks with churches and individuals inside […]

Who Am I?

If someone was to ask you who you are, you might respond with some common descriptions by sharing your name, interests, ethnicity, if you are male or female, young or old, quiet or loud, tall or short, etc. Yet you could spend a lifetime describing yourself and still have unanswered questions. Who am I? What […]
