August 5, 2021 The Long Service
Many think that a worship service should be an hour long. Five minutes longer and people get fidgety. Fifteen minutes over an hour is out of the question. But Jesus spoke all day and Paul’s service went on after midnight! Today’s thought is based on Acts 20:7-12

August 4, 2021 Disruption
In business, a disruption can be terrifying or life-changing depending on what side you are on. For example, the car disrupted horses as transportation. Wired Telephones were disrupted by cell phones and cell phones by smart cell phones. Remember the old clunker CRT TV you had? Few would think the disruption by flat-screen TVs manufacturers was anything but an improvement. Christ was and still is the great disrupter. Today’s thought is based on Acts 19: 32-41
