Across the Preacher’s Desk: “One Of His Followers”

May 14, 2020 - I read a story not long ago that came out of that era when trains were the dominant form of travel in our nation. It seems there was a little crippled boy who was carrying a basket of candy and fruit to sell, hurrying to the passenger gate of the depot as fast as his crutches would permit. As the passengers rushed through the gate, a fast-moving young business executive accidentally hit the boy’s basket, knocking its contents in every direction. He paused only long enough to severely scold the crippled lad for being in his way.

Across The Preacher’s Desk: Are We Emulating Jesus?

April 29, 2020 - Do we realize that the world is watching what we do? People get their concept of the church and Christianity by the life that we live, the things we say and the things we do. What will be the legacy we leave behind after we are gone? What kind of example are we living before our friends? In life, especially in the uncertain times we are living in, people are looking for something real to hold on to. They are looking for people who are genuine to look up to and follow.

Across the Preacher's Desk: Is Worship a Criminal Offense?

April 23, 2020 - It is sometime in the future. (It could be fifty years from now, yet, based on the Draconian measures of some of our politicians during the “present distress” it could be later this year or perhaps next year).  You are huddled with a small group, having met in a secret place so the authorities will not find out. Heads are bowed and someone is whispering a prayer. You are at a worship service.  Earlier you had sung a few hymns, softly, so no one outside could hear.

Across the Preacher’s Desk: Slow Down

April 8, 2020 - Perhaps an unintended benefit of this “current distress” is that we are learning that we didn’t need to live life in the mad rush we had been living in. We felt there was so much to be done and so little time! However, all of us have been forced to slow down just a little and hopefully we have learned a little patience in the process. Maybe, just maybe, we have learned the truth of that old saying “Rome was not built in a day."

Center Church of Christ Revised Worship Schedule

March 21, 2020 - As we all navigate through these unprecedented times in our country, it is very important that we are following the advice of public health officials to attempt to halt or mitigate the spread of this dreadful virus. Equally important is that we are still making worship and service to the God of Heaven the utmost priority in our lives. To that end, if you are planning to join us for worship tomorrow, you will be welcomed with open arms.
