Give us a King!

By   /  June 2, 2012  /  Doug Rea, Faith  /   Comments

Tweet     This is essentially what I hear from the Christian community when the presidential elections are the topic of discussion. Its either, “Give us Mitt! He will free us to prosper,” or “Give Obama 4 more years to fix it.” I understand both of these when taking a purely “natural” look at the [...]

Biker Week

By   /  May 26, 2012  /  Faith, Rev. Hood  /   Comments

Tweet     It was bikers’ week at the Philema Road Baptist Church this past Sunday.  I didn’t count the motorcycles but there looked to be about 30.  One of them was mine.  Some of the riders look the part.  They’ve got the ZZ Top beards and some have a variety of tattoos.  I have [...]

Tweet     “You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image–any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.” (Exodus 20:2-3) My wife and son had gone out to the [...]

In Mother’s Days Past

By   /  May 12, 2012  /  Faith, Rev. Hood  /  Comments Off

Tweet     In Mother’s Days past, I would call my mother and both grandmothers and tell them I love them and thank them for what they meant to me. I’ve not been able to do that since 2009. Both of my grandmothers went to be with the Lord in February of 2010. I can [...]

What if I’ve Blown It?

By   /  April 28, 2012  /  Doug Rea, Faith  /  Comments Off

Doug Rea

Tweet     Sometimes we just “blow” it.  There’s the  car you shouldn’t have purchased or the job you should have taken.  Perhaps for you its a relation that ended before its time, or an error in judgment that cost you dearly. We all have those, “What was I thinking,” events that have tripped us [...]

What is truth?

By   /  April 28, 2012  /  Faith, Rev. Hood  /  Comments Off

Tweet     Suspended. Put in timeout. What are we going to do with this trouble-maker? If we ignore him long enough, he will just fall through the cracks and we won’t have to think about him anymore. We could, however, consider his side of the story. Is he telling the truth? “Jesus answered, ‘You [...]

Tweet     I had lunch last week with some pastor friends in the area. After the meal we got on the subject of ministry. As we shared the happenings at our individual churches I challenged them with the title of this edition of, “With your Latte.”  I told them that, in my opinion, there [...]

What you deserve

By   /  April 21, 2012  /  Faith, Rev. Hood  /  Comments Off

Tweet     “You can get that new anything that you deserve!” “You deserve!” In the 1970′s, the most over used catch phrase was “new and improved.” Well that catch phrase got so played that “new and improved” meant anything but a new way to sell. This was geared to the baby boomers who were [...]

Boldness

By   /  April 16, 2012  /  Doug Rea, Faith  /  Comments Off

Doug Rea

Tweet     As I continue to write about David and Goliath, His boldness to face the giant cannot be ignored. Dictionary.com defines boldness as, “not hesitating or fearful in the face of actual or possible danger or rebuff.”  David’s willingness to face-off against Goliath certainly fits that designation. For us – this is 21st century America. What giants, persecution, or difficult circumstances do [...]

Easter Memories

By   /  April 14, 2012  /  Faith, Rev. Hood  /  Comments Off

Tweet     What Easter memories come to your mind? There was a boy who was in third grade. The time was the early 1970s. His first and second grade years were in one school which was in the logical place—in his community. Then someone decided that that communities could not do what was best [...]
