By   /  July 23, 2011  /  Rev. Snyder  /   Comments

Tweet Occasionally, I hear about somebody objecting to prayer. Usually, it is somebody who has no idea what he or she is talking about.

By   /  January 19, 2011  /  Rev. Snyder  /   Comments

Tweet Some things in life are so enjoyable you hope they linger forever. Other things, you hope disappear faster than they came, like relatives during the holidays.

Tweet From a practical standpoint, and if I am anything I am practical, well, practically, this year has gone by rather quickly. The fact I have survived this past year has to count for something.

Tweet My father used to tell me anything worth doing was worth doing right the first time. If you have time to do it the second time, you have time to do it right the first time. As fathers go, he was right. It seems most people have not learned this lesson, least of all [...]

Tweet By Rev. James L. Snyder As of late, I have been fighting an insufferable barrage of intruders into that area commonly referred to as, “My Castle.” Normally I’m not a pessimist, but I have a feeling I am losing this battle.
