silverton-friends-5-sm

A BIG THANK YOU! Back on February 10th we dedicated our new ministry wing at Silverton Friends Church. Some thought it to be a bit premature. Things weren’t completely finished, paint was still wet, and the students of our school hadn’t even moved in on the day of dedication. Realizing early on that this project was going to be an ongoing work and must be continually dedicated unto the Lord, … [Read more...]

Roberts’ Reflections – Loving God

12. 11 “Loving God with the Mind”                                    November  2008 In the parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus’ scribal interrogator quibbled about how to fulfill the Law in loving one’s neighbor. Like Pilate, people also hedge about truth—about loving God with one’s mind. “Test me, LORD. . .examine my heart and my mind” is a insightful proverb (Prov. 26: 2 TNIV) Hear what … [Read more...]

Roberts’ Reflections – Reverence and Awe

12.9 “Reverence and Awe”                                                            September 2008 I find the book of Hebrews instructive for delineating how the Old Covenant finds enhanced fulfillment in the New. Christ is a better creation rest than a ritual day. His blood speaks a better word than that of Abel—which a warring world needs to hear!  And, yes, Christ is a better priest than … [Read more...]
