Our hearts are broken. The senseless shootings and loss of young lives at Parkland are pretty hard to bare. I went on line and looked at the faces of the seventeen victims who died for seemingly nothing. That was a reality check. You look at the young faces with hopefully a promising future now snuffed […]

Many of us watched or listened to the president’s State of the Union address. Whether you appreciate the current administration or not, you have to concede that much has been accomplished this past year in Washington. I suppose we could transliterate “state of the union” as “condition of unity”. Unity can often be a welcomed […]

We have been recognizing Sanctity of Human Life month during January here at Mars Hill. Airing specials on the topic, featuring pro-life organizations under our Ministry Focus banner on our webpage, including pro-life awareness Tweets and Facebook features, and sponsoring a campaign to help stock the shelves for Moms and their babies in the New […]

We all knew it was coming. Many of us shuttered (and shivered) at the thought. January has arrived and brings with it even more than perhaps we expected, especially so soon. As I write this the east coast is bracing for heavy snowfall, followed by more sub-zero or nearly sub-zero temperatures. Here in Central NY, […]

When I was in high school, a poster was printed with bold letters declaring “Goodbye California”. The words were imposed over a drawing of the San Andrea’s fault. In small print it had names of famous people and places living or built along the fault line. That fault line runs almost the entire length of […]

Many of us carry family Christmas traditions with us. What traditions we had while growing up, some of those perhaps even from long ago past generations. Some traditions center on baking certain sweet delights, some adorn the family Christmas tree. Some traditions have to do with advent calendars or church activities. Families have rituals for […]

We hear lots of jingling these days. Sleigh bells being featured on favorite Christmas holiday songs, Salvation Army jingling from those little hand bells and school concert presentations, even church cantatas. Bells have taken on holiday significance. There are other bells, too. The ringing of church bells. These aren’t heard as much these days. The […]

I grew up living just a few miles from a good sized traffic circle, or sometimes called a “round-a-bout”. The circle was not built because of busy traffic congestion, but for smoothness of traffic flow from a number of entry points. I learned early on the meaning of “yield”. My daughter Janelle is currently attending […]

  I paid a visit to my credit union the other day. The tellers seemed to be in an exceptionally joyful mood (maybe because it was early in the day and they were feeling refreshed, I don’t know). As I finished up my business at the window, I overheard the teller at the next window […]

Yesterday morning I had quite a shock as my favorite tree in our yard, and ornamental pear, had lost a huge branch, that nearly made up about one-fourth of the tree. My wife and I were at a loss for words. The tree was relatively young, having planted it maybe 6 or 7 years ago […]
