Faith in a loving God, faith in the Golden Rule, means you are not being true to your faith if you keep it to yourself. You have an obligation to participate, to make things better, to serve your fellow human beings. “Faith without works is dead.”


I strive to do that every day in my personal life. In my corporate (communal) life, I hope that my participation in my local church and in the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches (NACCC) works toward that obligation (privilege, actually).


In less than a week, I am off to Orlando, Florida, to serve as Moderator Elect at the NACCC’s annual meeting and conference. Will what we do there further God’s kingdom here on our planet? Will we even make a dent? I am praying that we will. Yes, prayer. But then that’s a topic for another blog post on another day.


Yep. On September 16, 2012, I gave the sermon at Plymouth Congregational Church. Here it is:  A View from the Pew


In  an effort to further my sons along their faith journeys, it became necessary to find a new church with an active youth group that would welcome them in.  I found that in People’s Church in East Lansing.

I still belong to Plymouth, but now attend both on a rotating basis.  It is nice to have two varying worship experiences.

I don’t have all the answers. But do have faith.
