Dear Presby Family: Wisdom That Is Not Our Own
on August 25th, 2023
Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me.” John 7:16Over the years, I have experimented with different kinds of diets. The most recent one was Keto. The idea is that you cut out all sugar and carbs, making your body burn fat instead of storing it.This diet (and others like it) has been endorsed by a number of celebrities, bloggers, and social media influencers...

The Worship Design Team has not been reading our Bibles lately--gasp!Let me clarify and say that we have not been reading them together. That's because we have not been together much this summer with our various trips and responsibilities and Pastor Andrew traipsing off to Kenya.One of the last Psalms we DID read was Psalm 92.

Dear Presby Family: A Greater Way To Live
on July 28th, 2023
It’s hard to believe that we are quickly coming to the end of our study of Hebrews; what we started back in February will now be finishing in August. While we have spent 24 weeks on it (so far), the reality is that we could spend many, many more. In fact, as we turn our attention to Hebrews 13 this week, the reality is that we could easily break this up into four or five more Sundays. The reason f...
