Posted by Colby Kinser on

Is Coronavirus a plague from God as judgment on a sinful people? Some are sure that it is. Some are pretty confident it's not. Many in the middle tap their finger to their chin and cautiously say, "Could beeeeee ...." Then, in effort to land on one side or the other, we trace the implications...

Posted by Colby Kinser on

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...

Not Holding My Breath

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I'm not holding my breath waiting for COVID-19 to be over with. And by that, I don't mean that I'm not expecting us to ever get out of our homes. Rather, I mean that I'm not just going to wait until most of this is behind us. This is a rich time now! God's power is not weaker than this...

I Love My Church Family!

Posted by Colby Kinser on

OK ... so ... ummm ... that was a weird week. But one of the positives is yet another reminder of how much I love my church family. All of you have been incredibly flexible on how to be and do church. I'm hearing of many of you reaching out to others, checking on them, offering to...
