Pastor's Weekly Musing
by Meadows Fellowship on December 5th, 2019
Hey everyone!The angels declared on the day Jesus was born, "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests."I get the "Glory to God" part. He deserves all glory and honor and praise, and the miraculous and profound act of God becoming man warrants the highest of it all, to the "highest heaven". Got it.I also get the "on whom His favor rests" part. His unde...  Read More

Recently, Portia and I went to grab lunch at a local spot, and when we walked in, we were immediately hit with a strong smell. The food was apparently getting cooked in the back at that exact moment, and the smell was overpowering.   Read More

One of the things that scared me the most about getting married was the fact that Portia would know everything about me. I worked hard at curating an image with her: I wanted her to be impressed by me, to respect me, to think highly of me. I wanted her to see me as always strong, always smart, always ready to take on life, to be the hero, the leader, the man.But marriage means getting...  Read More

One of the questions I’ve had to wrestle with — not only as a Pastor, but as a dad — and one that I’ve been asked a lot: should we allow our kids to celebrate Halloween?It’s a good question, asked by honest Christians who are just trying to do the right thing. And seriously: it’s obviously got pagan origins, it glorifies the demonic and death, and there’s gotta be a better thing to fo...  Read More

We’ve been in the middle of some really cool sermon series on Sundays and Wednesdays recently. Our Sunday series on the life of David has been a joy, and Robyn has led a Wednesday series on Psalm 23 that has been awesome.Have you ever loved a sermon on a specific book of the Bible, or a specific chapter, or even a verse, and gotten SO much out of the teaching on it, then totally forgo...  Read More

The one thing I don’t miss about my old baseball life is the road trips, especially the Triple-A ones. The early morning flights, the hotel check-in process (which would often be long and shoddy), the bad sleep, the fast food, the new environment. There was just something different about playing at home.At home, my wife and kids are there with me, I’m in my own bed, I eat food at my o...  Read More

Hey everyone!The other day I was driving my son to Jr. High, about a 12-minute drive from our house. Around half-way there, I started to “zone out”. My brain went from thought to thought, from one imaginary scenario to another, over and over. Before I knew it, I had missed the exit to the school, and was on my way to the church office.My son finally said, “Uh, dad, where are we going?”Ever done th...  Read More

Last Sunday we talked at length about the community that God gave David — a distressed, discontented, indebted group — and that this community was of primary importance in the formation of David’s “heart for God”.WE’VE been given the same kind of community: the Island of Misfit Toys. It might not be what we expected, but it’s exactly what we need.And why? Well, for LOTS of reasons. Bu...  Read More

I love the fact that the Psalms were written by specific people, often for a specific purpose. Psalm 92 is one where we know it was written specifically for the Sabbath, the day of rest.Here’s what was sung:Psalm 92:1-4 It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to the Most High. It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening, a...  Read More
