It is a sad day in college football. Today is Frank Beamer’s final home game as head coach at Virginia Tech. Frank has been a steady constant in a world of change. As a Virginia Tech student, I was there in Shreveport, Louisiana for the 1993 Independence Bowl. I was even at the 1994 Gator Bowl when Peyton Manning dominated against

We started a new series at church this past Sunday on Margin. Too many of us go through life at 1,000 miles per hour rushing from one event to the next. We are stressed, overworked, tired, sleep-deprived, and just plain worn out. During the message I pushed pretty hard on the issue of youth sports. While there are many great

I enjoyed watching the Super Bowl at church yesterday with great people and great food. It helped that the game was close and competitive until the end. You could tell how the game was going by all the cheering and yelling during every big play. I didn’t really have a preference as to who won the game, so I was

Since that time, I really haven’t continued running and the years and pounds have added on.  Over the last couple of years I have tried to start running, but I

In the spirit of the olympics, here are some thoughts about different types of track athletes and church members.  Back in the old days, I used to run hurdles and the 400 meter, so I really love track.  I have noticed some common traits and characteristics from the different track events.

I am getting a little sleep deprived this week watching the olympics.  I just can’t stop watching each night.  The competition and passion just draws me in.   I have always loved sports, but there is something special about the olympics.  Watching both the excitement and the heartbreak brings out your national pride.    I’ve enjoyed the swimming and I’m amazed at

It’s always good getting to know other local pastors.  I met Ronnie Collins last year at a youth event at his church in Hillsville.  Ronnie is the Associate Pastor at Hillsville First United Methodist Church.   He has an incredible passion for reaching people for Christ and I’m looking forward to getting to know him better in the future.  Check
