View From The Pulpit

The View from the Pulpit – 6/18/12

Dear Church Family Grace and Peace to all you all in the Name of the One who’s love is unending and the source of truth; God’s presence with us – Jesus Christ. I sit this morning to write my final view from this pulpit at 1st UMC in Kennett.  This time next week the moving van will be in front of the parsonage while those little stickers... [Read more of this review]


The View from the Pulpit – 6/4/12

Dear Church Family Have you seen the pictures?  Sheryl and the Nurture Committee managed to get a large number of us out on the front steps, quiet, and mostly smiling while Chris set her camera across on the other side of College Avenue.  She got some pretty good shots.  They’re on our Facebook page (search for 1st UMC Kennett).  I have to admit... [Read more of this review]


The View from the Pulpit – 5/29/12

Dear Church Family Grace and Peace be yours today through the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ as we remember those who have lived to make our life possible.  It is a day of thanksgiving for those who have died while serving in the armed services.  I believe it is also a day to thank all the others who sacrificed on the home front while their loved... [Read more of this review]


The View from the Pews – 5/7/12

Dear Church Family Did you catch the snappy change in this missive’s title.  Yes….yesterday I spent most of my time sitting next to my lovely wife, watching and listening to a 45 minutes sermon preached by the children of the Chancel Choir (3rd-5th graders).  It was great! Mary Grace Collins, Jonathan Jain, Bodey Ellis, Marshall Brown, Hunter... [Read more of this review]


The View from the Pulpit – 4/23/12

The View from the Pulpit April 23, 2012 Dear Church Family: Grace and Peace to you all in the Name of the One who names us, Jesus Christ. My grammar checker tells me that first sentence is an incomplete thought or fragment.  I’ve re-read it several times, trying to understand what’s wrong; trying to restate it another way, but I can’t think of... [Read more of this review]


The View from the Pulpit – 4/16/12

Dear Church Family: Easter 2B is its “official” designation in the Church Calendar.  Easter is a big deal.  I’d like to be able to say that Easter is the longest season of the year.  But it’s not.  Lent (4 weeks) prepares us for Christmas (2 or 3 weeks) which leads to Epiphany (fluctuates depending on the date of Easter which is falls on... [Read more of this review]


The View from the Pulpit – 4/10/12

Dear Church Family: Yes, it was a beautiful morning to celebrate Easter.  The sun shined bright through the stained glass, highlighting the Spirits movement through our acts of praise and punctuating our prayers.  The Carol Choir (Pre-school to 2nd Grade) led by Amy Williams and accompanied by Dianne Carter set the mood as they called those gathered... [Read more of this review]
