Victory News – April 27, 2018

Pastor’s Message Hi Friends, Numbers of hope: This is the time of year when students start to figure out what they needed to score on their semester tests to get their desired grade. That score is a number of hope. Numbers of hope: If you are a golfer, you hope for a hole in one – the likelihood of an amateur golfer hitting a hole in one is 1 in 12.5K. Numbers of hope:  In Scripture, 0 and 100 are…

Pastor’s Message Dear Friends – Do you remember the story of the paralytic? The one where the four men had a friend who was paralyzed?  They brought him to Jesus for healing. But, when they got to the house Jesus was at, it was packed.  There was no way in to the house except to climb up on the roof and dig through it. So that is what they did. They lowered the man down on a mat to place…

Pastor’s Message Hello Friends, Promises, promises. Sometimes we are not so sure of promises because someone has broken a promise to us in the past and it hurt deeply. We may not be so sure about promises because we have broken promises we’ve made to others. We think that since people break promises that God will break his promises too. But God will never break his promises: For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in…

Victory News – April 6, 2018

Dear Friends, Easter brings to us the truth of new beginnings. Jesus is no longer dead; he is alive. And because Jesus is alive, we have a Savior who brings to us new beginnings every day. That is exciting news because so often we live with the guilt, the shame, the regrets, and the resentment of the past. Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you…

Hi Friends, How are your Easter preparations coming along?  There is so much to do. For some, it is buying, making, or baking for the Easter baskets, or Easter dinner  . . . and don’t forget about the Easter breakfast at the Victory Café. Maybe your to-do list includes buying new clothes, finding new shoes, or getting your hair cut. Maybe it is about fixing up the guest room for family or friends who will be staying with you.  You…

Victory News – March 23, 2018

Dear Friends, I am excited for this upcoming Holy Week. It is a week of great redemptive potential because the message of the cross and the victory of Christ over sin, death, and Satan is so blatantly clear. Often when I think of the redemptive story, I think of going out “into the world” (i.e. mission work).  Sometimes, I’m like Peter and put the cart before the horse. I get so revved up to tell others what Jesus has done…

Hi Friends – Have you ever had a song get stuck in your head? It plays over and over again in your mind, and you can’t get it out. Fear has a greatest hit: it is called a “what if.” Fears take over when we give more weight to our “what ifs” than to God’s promises and who God is.  What do you do with your “what ifs”?  Because I want you to know that they are always going to…

Dear Friends – Have you ever tried to cover up something? “Tilted Halos” is the title of a chapter in a book called The Ragamuffin Gospel. It begins with a man who has such a terrible headache that he finds himself in his doctor’s office. The doctor asks him a few questions to try and get to the bottom of problem.  The doctor asks, “Do you drink a lot of liquor?” Indignantly that man says, “I never touch the filthy…

Hi Friends, One summer I did some camping outside of Anchorage, AK.  As I made my way through the heavily forested area with a river rushing close by, I knew this was bear country. You see, a bear made it into our camp one night and came right up to our tent. (I prayed really hard.) As I was walking near the campsite, a thought kept coming to me: “Make noise.” Why make noise? Because a grizzly bear mom is…
