COUNTRY PASTOR: Feelings at harvest time run deep
In the early 60s there were times on the fender of the John Deere tractor, with Grandpa at the wheel, when I would watch the row of oats pulled...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Justice, mercy and grace
"Justice is getting what we deserve. Mercy is not getting what we deserve. Grace is getting what we don't deserve." Just about all of us go through the day with a basic idea that we get what we deserve. Experience gives plenty of reason to support this. When we plan well and work...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Your prime directive is to love
Have you ever heard of this wacky, fun and totally sci-fi franchise known as Star Trek? I have a confession. For the longest time, I could not tell other people that I loved Star Trek, Star Wars and all things science fiction related. (And I guess, now you all know. Oh well...) Well,...

Country Pastor column: The Bread of Life gives life
Jesus' words in the chapter have reached their pinnacle as he proclaimed not only that he was the Bread of Life, but that this Bread "is my flesh which I will give for the life of the world" [v.51]. And it's this heart of Jesus' discourse that was also the heart of the sharp argument:...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Good and edifying words
"Don't use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. And do not bring sorrow to God's Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you...

Country Pastor column: More like a county fair than a family reunion
The kingdom of God is like a county fair, where all the people come together to celebrate each other's achievements and enjoy each other's company. Though there is competition, there isn't bitterness. Though there is a marketplace, no one goes without. And in and through the whole...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Built on a rock that will not fail
Here in the Midwest a congregation is considered old if it has had a centennial. But there are older American churches. Recently I visited one:...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Gotta get away
Summer is here! Many of you are still firming up those vacation plans, finding hotels, checking out campgrounds, making reservations at that favorite resort, or booking plane or cruise trips. Whatever your plans are, don't forget to plan for God to accompany you. This is nothing...

COUNTRY PASTOR: Whoever is wise
"Whoever is wise, let him heed these things and consider the great love of the Lord." Psalm 107:43 The 107th Psalm is an amazing summary of God's dealings with His people. It is amazing because throughout the Psalm we see the Israelites in regards to their relationship with God;...

Country Pastor column: 'Summer' is for 'Sabbath' and Sabbath means to rest
The programming year for most of us pastors has just come to a close. This is also true for most of our ministry partners, as Sunday School classes (for both adults and children), along with most of our other programming, often takes a break for the summer. This isn't a bad thing....

Country Pastor column: Reclaiming evangelicalism
Then Paul stood in front of the Areopagus and said, "Athenians, I see how extremely religious you are in every way. For as I went through the city and looked carefully at the objects of your worship, I found among them an altar with the inscription, 'To an unknown god.' What therefore...

Country Pastor column: God is your Good Shepherd
I can't count the number of times I've watched a movie and the extras are all dressed in black while the pastor/priest reads "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death..." [Psalm 23:4, KJV]. So there tends to be a tendency to think of Psalm 23 as the "death psalm."...
