“God has given us two hands: One to receive with and the other to give with. We are not cisterns made for hoarding; We are channels made for sharing.” – Billy Graham

The Candle of Hope

Posted by on December 2, 2012 in Sermons | 0 comments

Today is the first Sunday of Advent, the Sunday in which we recall the hope we have in Christ. The prophets of Israel all spoke of the coming of Christ, of how a savior would be born, a king in the line of David. They spoke of how he would rule the world wisely and bless all nations. Oh Christmas day, the Christ of our hope was born. On Good Friday, the Christ of our hope died. On Easter day, the Christ of our hope rose from the dead. He then ascended into Heaven. On the last day, the Christ of our hope will come again to establish his kingdom...

A Solemn Prayer

Posted by on November 13, 2012 in Sermons | 0 comments

May our religion be filled with gladness and may our worship of thee be natural… Endow us with courage that is born of loyalty to all that is noble and worthy, that scorns to compromise with vice and injustice, and knows no fear when truth and right are in jeopardy. Guard us against flippancy and irreverence in the sacred things of life. Grant us new ties of friendship and new opportunities of service. Kindle our hearts in fellowship… and soften our hearts with sympathy for those who sorrow and suffer. -From The West Point Cadet...

Everybody is a somebody.

Long before the Rev. Jesse Jackson encouraged African-American children to repeat daily the words “I am somebody!”, George Washington Carver had reached the same conclusion. Carver attended church-sponsored Simpson College after being denied enrollment elsewhere because of his skin color. When the school’s president asked what the college had done for him, Carver replied, “Simpson College helped me realize that I was a human being.” That was the starting point of the great inventor’s career. People all need...

A Life Changing Walk

Luke 24:13-35 written by Rev. Reggie Dancel There will come a time in life when we feel disappointed, we feel down or  depressed or feel defeated, and this passage in the Gospel of Luke is a very helpful passage to read.  It’s a down-to-earth, simple story about two disciples of Jesus who were on their way to Emmaus, a village about 7 miles west of Jerusalem, on that first resurrection Sunday. They were in mourning  as they were having their conversation about what took place in Jerusalem during that stormy and tragic Friday.  The...

“Father, Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit”

“Father, Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit”

written by Rev. Reggie Dancel Luke 23:46 The Holy Week is upon us, and to us Christians especially those from thePhilippines,  the whole week is Holy and people refrain from working.  You could hear some Christians singing the “passion,” a narrative song/s portraying the life, teachings, sufferings, death and resurrection of our Lord.  But here in the USA, the Holy Week  does not seem that important to Christians here. It is treated like an ordinary week. Had we been at the foot of the cross, we would have heard Jesus’ final words: ...

Seeing The Positive In My Problems

Written by Rev. Reggie Dancel 1 Peter 4:12-19 As an introduction to this message, let us remember that the Epistles of First and Second Peter were written to inspire the early Christians who were undergoing persecution by Rome during the first century.  It was not easy to be a Christian at that time – it simply meant death, and yet they were willing to die for their faith in Jesus Christ. They were fed to the lions in the arena or burned at the stake, and yet they were singing to their death.  Unbelievable is all we could say today about...

We offer our deep sympathies to his wife, Edralin Dait, and his children as well as their relatives wherever they are, as they mourn for the death of their beloved. May God’s comfort and strength be with the grieving families at this time and the days to come. We will surely miss Tom Garin. The scripture passage mentioned above is called the “Parable of the Workers...

The Most Difficult Thing To Do

The Most Difficult Thing To Do

Love does not keep record of wrongs. Written by Rev. Reggie Dancel 1 Corinthians 13:5 In the Gospel of John 13:31-34, Jesus said, “A new commandment I give to you that you love one another as I have loved you.  People would know you are my disciples if you love one another.”  On this season of Lent, it is appropriate that we talk and act in the most loving way according to Jesus our Lord. What is a command? A command is mandatory. Compulsory. We have no choice but to obey a command. It is mandatory that as followers of Jesus, if we claim...
