"Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5 Every time I read this verse I am reminded of the lyrics in the old Mac Davis country...

I don't need the church anymore....or do I?

Posted by Mark Harris on

I love the church. As a Christian, I also need the church, and if you’re a Christian so do you. Now granted, these days it seems as though this isn’t as commonly a held belief as perhaps it once was. Sadly over my tenure as a pastor, I have watched people that I love, people who...

Abide in Him

Posted by Mark Harris on

4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. 5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing...

To My Church: A Response to Today's Supreme Court Ruling

Posted by Mark Harris on

I have spent quite a bit of time today considering and praying over how to respond to today's ruling and honestly I am not sure yet what my response should look like. This may mean that it's not time for me to respond at all but I think that would be irresponsible so I at least wanted to address...

A Handful of Quietness

Posted by Mark Harris on

Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from a man's envy of his neighbor. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.The fool folds his hands and eats his own flesh.Better is a handful of quietness than two hands full of toil and a striving after wind.(Ecclesiastes 4:4-6...
