Yes God is God let Him be God All by Himself Sometimes we may think that we need to rush things. God knows what is best for us He knows what we need before we ever ask Him sometimes we may think that God did not hear us. Oh yes God does hear us when we ask Him but He may not always give us what we have asked because this may be something that could hurt us later. This could be a want and not a need. God loves us and He really does care for His children. I have children and grandchildren and i… Continue

I invite everyone on CM Connect to visit my website www.joyceoglesby.com at the below-listed URL and read a moving email from a soldier serving in Iraq. His "The Soldier's Thoughts" is a response to my "Soldier Thoughts," which you will probably want to read first. (You'll have to scroll down the lengthy blog to see the second one in order to read it first.) This is a true heart of a soldier. I am encouraging everyone to comment on the blog. I will then contact SPC Hernandez and invite him to… Continue

So we are about to host another Baby Dedication. It's a wonderful celebration where we, as a church family, stand up and say that we'll stand by the parents in encouraging, equipping and supporting them as they direct the spiritual life of their young child....
And then we don't connect with them - as a family, in our church family - until the child is ready to be baptized. Sometime about 10 years in the future!
What about all the milestones in between? How can we possibly… Continue

This Sunday I spoke briefly on Psalm 78. Specifically, this statement really struck me:
"We will not hide them (God's teachings) from their children, we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord; his power, and the wonders he has done."
I kept coming back to the word hide. It reminded me of the story of the disciples attempting to keep the little children from coming to Jesus. (Mark 10:13)
What are we hiding from our children? Surely it is… Continue

I know it probably makes little sense why things just pop into our head at the times they do, but yesterday I was in a 'create' mode and something popped into my head. I just drew it out on a post it and then got back to what I was doing since it was a seemingly random thought monkey anyways (gotta take control of the thought monkey or you'll never get any other work done).
-It's not much to look at, but it's a simple diagram that… Continue

One of the great efforts of the Post Modern Culture is to marginalize matters of faith. Faith is relegated to rather odd notions like black cats, broken mirrors, and other superstitions. A fully actualized human being has out grown the need for such concepts as god, finding divinity centered in the self. And so people march on with a Nietzsche style liberation from God. It is therefore quite disturbing for the liberated to see all these Christian fanatics in the air ways and writing books. Even… Continue

I can’t believe I’m doing this again. The last time I started writing a blog I quickly became overwhelmed with another responsibility but I believe this time will be different. I desire to chronicle my journey of a closer walk with God in the ministry to children. I have struggled over the past 4 years concerning why I am in the ministry and what God has planned. Does He have a strange sense of humor? I look back over the things He has accomplished in such a short time and I am… Continue

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to a sleep-deprived episode of The Thursday Blog. There is no need to worry because I am at that point of sleep deprivation where you get surprisingly witty so this should be fun.
The question is: How come you are lacking in the sleep department? Well the answer is the title of this episode:
"BIG - Fun behind the scenes”
For some of you who are reading you will know what BIG is. Yes it is a movie with Tom Hanks… Continue

Hi there you incredibly amazing person.
Welcome to the world of the writings of Funny Man Dan. I am currently a writer for The Thursday Blog and that is a whole lot of fun. Those posts are on the left hand side of my page.
The Thursday Blog is about life which is a wide and random topic and isn't necessary about ministry but when the is an episode that does relate I will post it here as well.

I am looking at doing Back Yard Bible Clubs this summer. e do not have our own bulilding-we rent space on Sunday so we don't have a place to do a traditional VBS. Has anyone done back yard clubs? How well do they work. What is the best way to get the un churched kids from the neighborhood there? Any thoughts and ideas are welcome.
