Every Case of Atheism is Temporary

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Every case of atheism is temporary. Not a single case will go uncured. The same is true for agnosticism (the view that it is impossible to know God even if He exists). Every person who claims God doesn't exist or that He is unknowable will one day absolutely agree that God not only exists, but...

Take a Breath

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Now that we've been in this a while and all the signs point to many more months of reacting to Coronavirus, now is a great time to take stock. Take some time to do a self-checkup ... "How am I doing physically? Mentally? Emotionally? Spiritually? What have I been neglecting "until this thing...

CSL on C-19

Posted by Colby Kinser on

C.S. Lewis, once again, says beautifully what I've been struggling to put into words. Rather than write my own article this week, I will just include his words on the atomic bomb, but what he said can equally be applied to COVID-19. You can read a full article...

How much I want to meet with you

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I really don't like wearing a mask. I don't like the feel, I don't like how it's a little harder to take in a deep breath, I don't like not seeing someone's expressions, and I don't like them not seeing mine. So I wear my mask. And I really don't like wearing a mask when we gather for worship...

The Tyranny of Titles

Posted by Colby Kinser on

"Black Lives Matter." Boom - I just created some sort of response in you, perhaps even a strong one. And not the same response in each of you. I understand the reasoning behind the variety of responses. I can create the same range of responses with the phrase "white privilege." How thin is the...

Fear to Cavalier

Posted by Colby Kinser on

By now, you've likely seen someone you thought was a little too cavalier about the Coronavirus. Or maybe you have second-guessed yourself that you were being a little too carefree about protecting yourself. Should I wash my hands more often? We've all also seen the fear that some have had over...

Afraid and Tired ... Or Not

Posted by Colby Kinser on

You've seen it. Maybe at times you've even felt it. Fear. Particularly, fear related to COVID-19. Fear that you or someone you know might get it. Fear to be out in public in high-contact situations. Fear of the economic impact. Fear of losing your rights. Fear that churches will not...

Hybrid Groups

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Last Sunday night, our small group met partly in person, partly online for the first time - a "hybrid" group. We had been all online since March. For those in person, we set up a computer to display the video call on a large TV screen to make people more life-sized. Even though we weren't all...

Deeply Grateful

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I want to give a shout out for a few who have really gone above and beyond during this time, and I will do so in front of the whole congregation when it's time to. In no particular order: Pete R for all the sound tech and video tech requirements of moving everything online and then...

Trolls

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Once upon a time, there were two trolls. Norris the Troll was known mainly for his incredibly large nose. Most in the forest didn't know if he was nice or mean, artistic or scientific, vegetarian or a frog-eater. Just his big nose. It was so large that he often hurt himself when he opened a door...
