Something to ponder during Lent

First, a story (which I mentioned in a sermon last fall). Some two hundred years ago, in the early days of gas street lights, the cities in England employed lamplighters. You see, each light had to be lit manually every evening. The lamplighter would go from light to light putting a ladder up against the lamp post, climbing up with his torch, lighting the lantern, climbing back down and moving on to the next one.

Personal Peace
“Peace.” It sounds wonderful, it has nothing but good connotations. It's too bad there's not more of it. That's why we Christians are so concerned about it. In fact, if we were to take a survey of a cross-section of our society, and to ask people to describe how they feel on the inside about their lives and their lifestyles, we wouldn't expect to hear much about peace. In fact, it's been done, and the results show a widespread lack of contentment, a deep dissatisfaction, that people express when they really think seriously about their lives.

Pastor's Blog - February 2014: My Journey to the Church of the Brethren

Just over 27 years ago, in the spring of 1987, Susie and I were searching for a new church home for our family close to our residence in Westminster. I had been to a couple of churches and the time came on a Sunday in mid-May for me to check out another one. The memory came to mind of attending the Westminster Church of the Brethren in 1964 as a high school student in the Key Club, on which occasion I heard a fiery civil rights sermon, so powerfully delivered by Curtis Dubble that it was all I could do at the age of 16 not to stand up and cheer.
