Words Matter

We live life by ideas, and words are the pieces of which ideas are built. Words can poison, words can heal. Words start and fight wars but words can make peace. Words lead men to do great good and great harm. Nelson Mandela wrote “It is never my custom to use words lightly. If 27…

Following

Years ago on New Year’s Day, in the Tournament of Roses parade, a beautiful float suddenly sputtered and shuttered to a halt in the middle of the parade route. As the world watched it was determined to be out of gas. The whole parade was held up until someone could run and get a can…

Leave the Sheep, See the King

They were “shepherds living in the field near Bethlehem, keeping watch over their flocks by night.” To shepherds – not to priests and rulers – to shepherds – not to Scribes and Pharisees, an angel appeared, proclaiming, “unto you is born this day a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” James wrote “Has not God…

Prepare Him Room, In Your Heart

Luke 2:7 simple records the following fact. “There was no room for Jesus in the Inn.” Although short this is a profound statement is often true of us – especially during the busy holiday season. We know that the reason for the season is to celebrate Christ’s birth and we say that this is what…

Walk Through Live Nativity

This year, Forest Park Church is presenting our fourth “Journey to Bethlehem”.  Come experience our production of Bethlehem on the night Jesus was born.  Encounter humble shepherds, roman soldiers, and townspeople as you journey to meet the Messiah! Tours begin every 5 minutes between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. and take about 45 minutes to complete. …

Prepare Him Room

The coming of promised Messiah had been anticipated for thousands of years. Prophecies foretold the coming of the Savior of the world. Factions and movements were formed just to prepare for His coming. His birth would be so important that it would split history into B.C. and A.D. In fact, your birthday is dated in…

Overwhelmed

We’ve all got limitations. Our lives, no matter how we hate it, have capacity issues. There’s only so much you can do, so much time and energy you have. We often find ourselves stressed, worried, anxious, confused, maybe all of the above. We worry about our next paycheck, our diet, or our grades? The bills,…

An Attitude of Gratitude

There is much to admire about the “company of plain Englishmen” who disembarked from the Mayflower almost four centuries ago. They were men and women who exhibited enormous courage in the face of unspeakable hardship and loss. They loved their children, they loved the body of Christ, and they abandoned everything that was familiar to…

“EKKLESIA” CALLED OUT BY CHRIST

It’s not often that I pull out the Greek in a sermon title, but this Sunday will be an exception. Ekklesia is a Greek word used to describe the church throughout the New Testament. It’s the word Jesus used when He said, “… upon this rock I will build my church” (Mt 16:18). It’s the word found in…

Pushing Forward

There were 40,000 fans on-hand in the Oakland stadium when Rickey Henderson tied Lou Brock’s career stolen-base record. According to USA Today, Brock, who had left baseball in 1979, followed Henderson’s career and was excited about his success. Realizing that the ball player would set a new record, Brock said, “I’ll be there. Do you think I’m…
