Prison Ministry

Christian Library International takes donations of used Christian books, Bibles (large print and Spanish are especially needed) and places them with prison chaplains for their lending libraries or as gifts to prisoners. It is a wonderful opportunity to show love and tell prisoners about Jesus.


The Christian Library International stamp is placed in each book that goes out so the prisoners may request to do a Bible study. It is a very worthwhile ministry that people here at…

Pray for your Grandchildren to find God's Favor like Noah

Pray for your Grandchildren to find God's Favor like Noah was a righteous and blameless man, among the people of his time, and he walked with God. God saw that the earth was filled with corruption, violence and depravity however, Noah did all that the Lord commanded him to do.¹

Since creation, it had not rained…

Grandma's Theory on Church Growth

Grandma Buchan was a very wise woman, and she had a fascinating theory on church growth. Well, actually, her theory had to do with restaurants, but many of the same principles apply to churches.


      “Jimmy, I never go to a restaurant if the parking lot isn’t full,” she told me firmly one day.


      I had never thought about restaurants that way. In fact, it seemed to me that there should be other…

In Which Season of Life are You?

In the Northwest, we are having great autumn weather with the awesome colors, seeing beautiful reds, oranges, yellow and golden leaves. The other day while driving down the street, seeing the beautiful trees I was reminded of the seasons we experience each year and compared them to our lives.   

I was thinking that when we are in our childhood years, we are like the…

Prayer Stories

Encouraging people to pray for their friends, co-workers, family and neighbors is essential. It can be a blessing to you personally, and to other people in ways you may never know.


Stories are a great way to lend encouragement to people. Maybe you have stories of how God has worked in and through you. How have you seen God answer prayers in your life? What has God shown you through prayer? Have you been able to pray with anyone lately?


Maybe you take prayer…

Distractions Don't Need To Distract Us In Prayer

We've all had it happen, haven't we?  We're trying to pray, perhaps alone or in a group, and soon our mind is wandering. We're thinking about the next meeting, our kids at home, a funny story, our struggle with our spouse or coworker, a song we heard on the radio and a thousand other things.

Of course, we feel guilty again for not focusing on the Lord and the things that break His heart as the saying goes. We determine…

Be Real – Don’t Wear a Mask

As I was thinking about Halloween coming up at the end of this month, I started thinking of jack-o-lanterns, costumes, masks, etc. Children always have a good time deciding who they are going to be and what they will wear as they go trick or treating and of course eating their treats.

 It reminded me of how some times we as grandparents tend to hide, conceal or disguise how we really feel about ourselves or who God designed us to be. Paul writes in Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s…

Check Your Spiritual Heart Rate

We live in a day and age where many people exercise for health, appearance, and happiness.  Many who do so wear heart rate devices to monitor the speed of their heart rate as they run or work out.  If the rate is too high or low, they change pace to bring it into a safe or more…

Pastor Appreciation Night

A sleepless Saturday night was complicated by what one minister-friend calls, “Intestinal uncertainty.”  For me at least, it is a rather frequent Saturday night experience when I am preaching on Sunday morning. Even though I’ve spent Sunday mornings doing just that for more than fifty years, the butterflies keep coming and some nights they turn into buzzards. One can either resent this scenario or accept it as a way to keep from becoming self-sufficient on Sunday morning.  This kind of…

Are you Sowing Seeds of Prayer for your Grandchildren?

As we are in the autumn season, I was reminded of my childhood, growing up on a wheat farm in Oklahoma. In the summer after the wheat harvest, my father would prepare the soil for the next year’s harvest and in the autumn, he would sow the wheat seed. Throughout the winter months, we would wait for the rains to water the seed and wait for it to come up and watch it grow. In…

The Day the Nations Prayed for Jerusalem

On Sunday October 6th, Christians in over 175 nations, including those in the “underground churches” of China and seven Muslim countries, prayed for God’s peace and blessings upon Jerusalem and all of her people as part of the Day of Prayer for the Peace of Jerusalem (DPPJ). It is truly difficult to grasp the width and the breadth of this global, grassroots prayer…
