The Preaching Life

“The Preaching Life” by Barbara Brown Taylor When the culture treats me as if all I am good for is to produce or to consume, the Bible invites me to love. When the culture encourages me to think of myself as a rugged individualist, the Bible calls me to be a neighbor. When the culture conditions […]

Tyger is terrific!

Time to reflect a bit on my one-year anniversary at TRPC… Just some rather random thoughts and feelings… Love the people…a neat mix of age, personality, background and talent. Seeing the commitment of time and energy to Larry’s Christmas and Lenten productions was impressive-we have a core group of dedicated folks who make it happen […]

What’s Missing?

With credit to “Hungry Hearts” -the spiritual formation newsletter of the PCUSA There are so many aspects of Tyger River Presbyterian Church that I like and appreciate. First and foremost, lots of neat people-a good blend of ages, personalities, backgrounds, introverts and extroverts and folks somewhere in between. My concern is that our key leadership […]

Come, Lord Jesus

Dear Tyger River family and friends, Our theme for this upcoming Advent Season is “Come, Lord Jesus!” Ready or not, Advent begins November 30, just a month from now, which means Christmas is just around the corner!

When It Costs It Counts

The widow’s story is not about how much she gave but how little she kept for herself. Those of us who give out of our abundance still have lots of abundance left. Are we dependent on our money to give us all we want and need from life, or are we dependent on God to make us rich? The best resources we have are the riches of God’s mercy.

Only as we answer where life counts can we say where and how much giving will cost…and that’s where our heart will be.

It Is Good

The first creation story in Genesis was written in the 6th century BCE when Israel was in exile. Things were also not good then. Home was far away. Security, roots, the things that give life stability and meaning were long gone. People’s lives were shattered and political life was unstable. Yet in the midst of hopelessness some Hebrew poet had the audacity and guts to sing God’s goodness. Imagine most folks thought she or he was crazy but the people longed to believe God was, is still good, that life is good, and longed to sing praise and give thanks with glad and sincere hearts as they used to do.
