Holy Byproducts

So this week, expect something to come up. Say, “O there it is.” But look—the blessings that God is trying to give you even then are so much bigger than that problem. Your problem looks like a teenie-weenie molehill compared to the mountain of grace, of love, of compassion that God wants to give to you. Indianola Dave Clark



Come Holy Spirit, Come

Where there is God’s spirit, there can be forgiveness and love. Selfish people will be inspired to look beyond their own greed, lazy people will get off their hind ends, the rich and the poor, the young and the old, green city kids in polo shirts and old farmers in bib overalls can all come together and follow the good shepherd. Where there is the Spirit there is life and transformation.



Prepared for Departure



Pastor Dave Clark Iowa sermon: Not as the World Gives

Sometimes we associate peace as the calm after the storm but the kind of peace that Jesus offers is peace right smack dab in the middle of the storm, in the middle of your troubles, in the midst of your problems. And it doesn’t come like a surprise visitor who stays for a moment and vanishes, it comes as a rock knowing that you are looked after, cared for, that even if those waves bash your rock you know that you are loved, forgiven, meant for good in this world, a positive force.
