Songs of Ascents

In the Psalms, there are what we have listed as Songs of Ascents. At some point, they became literal songs that the pilgrims would sing as they went to Jerusalem for the Feasts and other special times. The Temple was on top of the Temple Mount, and towered over the surrounding area. As the people literally “went up” to worship,...

Do You Need a Stephen Minister?

I want to thank you for your faithfulness in dealing with a pretty heavy sermon series on “Good Grief.” There were some really hard messages in the series, and a one really long one on Suicide and Depression. I laughed and told the staff, it has to be long, because nobody would come back for Part 2.   ...
