Legacy Sunday

Pastor Mark Toone: My wife Cyndi loves old murder mysteries like Columbo. And I’ll watch them with her, but I find the commercials on those channels equally entertaining. Retired game show hosts (who are obviously financial experts) are pitching gold or silver or reverse mortgages or insurance or something else they promise is going to […]

Living Life Backwards

On our vacation, Cyndi and I played a lot of golf. But one hole we played was especially memorable. Terrifying, in fact. It was steep and the grass was wet. Cyndi said, “Shouldn’t we stay on the cart path? I said, “Nah…they’d have signs up if it were cart path only.” So, I started straight […]

Unexpected Jesus

“Expect the expected.” That was what Seattle Mariners’ manager Scott Servais said earlier this week when asked about this weekend’s wildcard playoff game between the Mariners and the Toronto Blue Jays. And yesterday afternoon when l checked the score at the top of the 6th to see that the Mariners were down by 7 runs, […]

Conquering the Splitter

A few days ago, I was dead asleep when my alarm went off. I almost always wake up before the alarm…and it was really loud…so I rolled over quickly to turn it off. What I didn’t realize was how close I was to the edge of the bed. I rolled right out of the bed…and […]
