The name of this blog is taken from the fact that I deliver mail for the United States Postal Service, or should I say did work for the United States Postal Service. As of last Friday, July 5, I am no longer an employee of the post office. According to the cake I was given I retired, but in reality I resigned. For those interested; the reason I didn't retire, I have the age but not the years. I could have retired but I would have taken 30% penalty on my retirement, so I have postponed my retirement and will actually retire from the post office when I turn 62.
As you see one season has ended, and another begins. With it comes excitement and some uncertainty for my wife and I. During the time I worked for the post office I have pastored Edgemere Bible Church. Several times during those years we have been at the point of ready to go there full-time, but something would happen and all that would be put on hold. Now I am the full-time pastor at Edgemere Bible Church and excited to see what God is going to do, but at the same time praying that in a lack of faith I did not wait to long. That is the season we now enter.
If you have ever looked at this blog, it never really developed into my original idea, there were some thoughts, songs of the month, and sermons, but not quite what I expected. So know with more time, and maybe more originality this blog will be come a worthwhile destination. The name may change, it may just start all over, but it is a new season and I am looking forward to it. Hope to see you soon.

Yet the bitterness and the anger that it brings can paralyze us. We talked about one of the greatest examples of forgiveness you will ever see from World War II is provided from Louis Zamperini. Check it out.

Sermon from Sunday April 15, 2018 at Edgemere Bible Church. Some churches thrive, some are struggling. The ones in the midst of struggles realize things could be better, even what it to be better, but are usually waiting for someone else to make that first step. Check it out.

We can say sorry a lot, but never really mean it. We make children apologize, but usually it is said while plotting the next attack. It works it way into our relationship with Jesus as well, we go to bed and give it the please forgive all my sins as sleep takes over. In the Bible we see a man who committed sins, covered it up until he was called out. Then we see one of the deepest, gut wrenching I am sorry,the likes of which we need to experience in our own lives. Check it out.
