  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

March 12, 2013 - Just Jesus

By Doug Clay

There is a lot about the Book of Hebrews that is a mystery. We’re not sure who wrote it or when it was written. We are not even sure who it was written to, but one thing is for sure, the theme of this book is Jesus.

"The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven. This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names" (Hebrews 1:3,4, NLT).

More than 2,000 years ago there was a Man born contrary to the laws of life. This Man lived in poverty and was reared in obscurity.

He did not travel extensively. He possessed neither wealth nor influence. His relatives were inconspicuous. He had neither training nor formal education.

In infancy He startled a king; in childhood He puzzled brilliant teachers; in manhood He ruled the course of nature, walked upon the water as if on pavement, and hushed a storm-tossed sea to sleep.

He healed the multitudes without medicine and made no charge for His service.

He never wrote a book, and yet all the libraries could not hold the books that have been written about Him.

He never wrote a song, and yet He has furnished the theme for more songs than anyone else.

He never founded a college, but all the schools put together cannot boast of having as many students.*

He never practiced psychiatry, and yet He has healed more broken hearts than all doctors far and near.

He has never let me down.

It’s not just religious rhetoric or the company line when I say, "Jesus is really all you need." It's the truth.
