Waiting

May 18th, 2022|

I have never been a naturally patient person.

I run fast. I plan my day. I think ahead. I keep a schedule. I try to guess which grocery line is the quickest, but usually am wrong and get frustrated as my line ends up being the slowest. I am the first one in the car and often find myself idling while waiting for my significant others to catch up. No one likes being stuck in traffic and I don’t like being stuck in church services or in meetings that are dragging on long after […]

April 29th Update

April 29th, 2022|

Heidi and I are back in Eureka before heading to Oregon and then Washington. Our recent travels were productive, fruitful, and somewhat restful. Heidi stayed especially busy in her role as a Regional Pastor. I believe that our landing place for the next season will come into focus during the next eight weeks. Early this week, I completed some training in church consultation. The training will definitely be useful to me as a leader, wherever the Lord leads. https://malphursgroup.com/

I have been reflecting on Haggai 2, and realize that I have spent […]

The Power of Friendship

April 12th, 2022|

Heidi and I just visited six national parks in seven days. Our son and daughter-in-law joined us for an unforgettable week. We went from Capital Reef, to Zion, to Bryce Canyon, to Canyonlands, to Arches, and to the Grand Canyon. It was amazing!

Now we are in Tucson, Arizona, staying in the (vacant) home of Greg and Barb Morse, who are in Eureka.

During the […]

The Best News!

March 25th, 2022|

What if today the war in Ukraine ended and peace was established?
What if today Covid disappeared, along with every possible variant?
I think we all would be pretty excited about this kind of good news!
My wife and I recently found out that we are going to grandparents of not just one granddaughter, but two before this year ends!! That is some great news that came to us.

But the best news of history is the euangellion (Gk), the “Gospel”, is that we can have peace with God, forgiveness, and life, because of the sacrifice of Jesus and His resurrection.

We emphasize this message […]

Life Update – Where we have been

March 18th, 2022|

It has been nearly two months since our last weekend at Faith Center, and I want to let you know what we have been up to, and what is next for us. In summary, we have been traveling and meeting with ministry friends (and family) to encourage and inspire one another.

Immediately following those services, we flew to Southern California where we met with Foursquare Leaders for the Regional Pastor’s training that took place near LAX.

After this, we went to Cannon Beach (Oregon) for a pastors retreat that was put on by Compassion First, an amazing organization that we have partnered […]
