July 4th

Can you believe we have reached the mid-way point of 2012? It is at this time of year that we annually turn our attention to our next holiday, the July 4th celebration. Many have family traditions that will be observed such as meeting at the beach with family, or simply meeting at the park to enjoy good food, time with family and friends, watermelon, and possibly a round o...

Kids Week. Nursery Duty. Family Matters. Father's Day. Summer Vacation.

At this time of year, children (and grandchildren) are on our minds and all around the house. I had supper last week with a young man (now he's a Major in the Army, but he's always going to be younger than me) who grew up at Morningside. It is inspiring to see "the ones that made it" through the storms and challenges of childhood and young adulthood, and it is encouraging ...

Founding Fathers

With the Fourth of July around the corner, the question can be asked, "Do our leaders today compare with our Founding Fathers?" If the answer is no, it may be because of what we are teaching our children today - or, precisely, what we are not teaching them. Our Founding Fathers believed "religion, morality, and knowledge [were] necessary to good government and the happine...

Family Matters Update

Family Matters helps MBC realize a dream, a big dream that the church saw 23 years ago. Family Matters moves us $1,695,864.45 closer to making the dream a reality ($1,695,864.45 henceforth referred to in this article as $1.7m for the sake of time). $1.7m is less than the stated goal of $2.3m for Family Matters, even in Rabbitown, GA, my hometown. That said, $1.7m stands a...

Instrumentalists and Singers

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with the thankfulness in your hearts to God" (Colossians 3:16). That is worship! Everything in us should bring praise to God. Another way of putting it is "praise is thanksgiving from the inside out." Many of our members can play di...

Urgency

In the gospel of John chapter 9 Jesus shared with his disciples this truth, "While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world." In the preceding verse Jesus had announced to His disciples that, "We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work." The phrase, "while it is day" could reference the years of Jesus' earthly...

Family Roots

My family and I have been members of Morningside since 1984. We have seen growth and changes, and we have been blessed to be a part of the three previous stewardship campaigns. The current Family Matters campaign is an opportunity to look at where we are and where we are going. I believe that Morningside's roots are strong and spiritually deep. I believe that the Lord has...

Moving Morningside Forward

Family Matters moves Morningside forward. It captures a vision of the future and gives you a chance to participate in the vision via commitment. Commitment Sunday sits a few squares away from today on the calendar. Mark your calendar for Sunday, May 20, 2012, and consider giving sacrificially. Sacrificial giving means to subordinate or give up something you desire - some...

A Prayer for Faith

Oh Father in Heaven, Thank you for everything you do for us; thank you for your Word and the examples you give us in your Word. It is my prayer that we remember those examples, especially those who acted on faith, and apply them in our lives today. I pray that your will be done. I pray that our will and our desire align with yours. I pray that if the new building is inde...
