Annual Stars and Stripes Stampede Auction

I attended this dinner last night at Calvary Chapel in Idaho Falls.  Every year the church hosts this fundraiser for the Calvary Chapel Christian School. I saw team members of the Boise State Girls Basketball Team in the front entryway.  Almost all of them were as tall as me (or taller).  Jennell Faulkner did a nice […]

United Methodist Stance on Free Will in Idaho Falls

St. Paul’s United Methodist Church – their May 2011 newsletter teaches (p. 3): We are continuing our series this month on “What do United Methodists believe?”  Sometimes it is easier to understand your beliefs when you contrast them with what other people believe.  One belief that separates Methodists from other denominations is the doctrine of free will.  […]

Kristin Glaser of Cornerstone Pentecostal

I liked what Kristin Glaser from Cornerstone Pentecostal in Idaho Falls wrote in the recent Cornerstone Pentecostal newsletter (2011): We are well on our way into 2011 and I can’t help but rejoice in the things that I was able to leave behind. As I have thought of all I was able to let go of, I realize that […]

Is Mormonism Protestant?

That is usually not a tough question to answer for those living in Southeastern Idaho. Christopher asks the question over at The Juvenile Instructor.  Professor Charles Cohen offers an answer.  Cohen suggests “cultural similarity is not theological, doctrinal, and liturgical similarity.” That sentence is worthy of exploration by a book to be written by someone living […]

Two Car License Plate Frames in Idaho Falls

Here are two of the latest that I have read. 1.  The one declared, “Jesus loves Bikers”.  Is that so?  Maybe that is why I have had the hankering to get a motorcycle. 2.  The other said, “In case of rapture, the car is yours.”  Which makes me think . . . will there be […]

Lutheran Gospel Proclamation in Idaho Falls

Lifted from Hope Lutheran‘s online April 2011 Newsletter . . .   From Martin Luther Truly, our knowing is more passive than active; that is, it is more a matter of being known by God than of knowing God. Our ‘activity’ is to allow God to do His work among us. He gives the Word, and […]

Idaho Falls Earth Day Celebration 2011

I took my family to the celebration on Saturday at Tautphaus Park.  We went to the zoo.  We looked at the exhibits.  We watched the skaters and bikers in competition.  In the afternoon, I even took my youngest boy to the latest DisneyNature movie, “African Cats.”  (I had a free theatre ticket.) In retrospect, I think this […]

Easter Aftermath Aglow in Idaho Falls

1.  Yesterday morning, our church family ate a delicious breakfast together and worshipped the Lord.  We listened to “The Prodigal” and celebrated the power of the risen Christ.  A sister in our church family compiled Isaiah 53 readings, journal entries of a 1st century Jew (which she wrote), and musical selections that centered on the crucifixion […]
