Weekend Sermon: “Staying on God’s Best Plan”

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

The latest series of sermons by Joel has been a great one. Now that my work schedule has cleared up ever so slightly, I might even have some time to explore it in a bit more depth. After soaking in the Saturday service and watching the Sunday webcast, however, a few quick thoughts are in […]

Weekend Sermon: Being a Loyal Person

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

This weekend’s sermon was one that applies rather universally to all of us – loyalty. Each of us has friends, family, coworkers, or others that we have some degree of commitment to that requires us to excercise some amount of loyalty. And on the surface, it would appear to be an easy box to check […]

Weekend Sermon: Freedom From Struggling

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Just to set the stage for proper context, here’s a fairly lengthy transcription of part of the sermon’s opening and the Scripture referenced … Hebrews 4:3 … As one who’s never really set out to earn any massive income in life, it’s easy to occassionally look around the modest dwelling I call home and feel […]

Wednesday Sermon: “Because You Say So”

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

A few belated thoughts from Wednesday … First, Paul Osteen’s sermon last weekend must have been popular. When I got to the bookstore on Wednesday, I was told they were out of CDs from it and to check back after the service when they might have some replacements. Afterwards …. still no replacements. That’s a […]

Wednesday Worship in Review: Music That Erases the Distance

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

It’s early in the morning, but I’m still reeling from the worship project that we recorded last night at Lakewood. Among the things known going in were that there simply wasn’t a shortage of new tunes to unleash to the world. Dare I say it, but a new CD is overdue in my mind. This […]

Wednesday Sermon :: What Do You Have In Your Hand? – Paul Osteen

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Although still new at this blogging venture, I try and steer clear of simply stating that any sermon is particularly great. I mean, they can all qualify for such praise, but its too easy to simply leave it as a self-evident truth without substantiating the reason for such praise. But that’s pretty much the sentiment […]

Wednesday Sermon :: Marcos Witt – Don’t Embrace the Garbage

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

First things first, we’ve got to give credit where credit is due here … Marcos Witt is now the official good luck charm of the Astros winning critical playoff games. Attendace certainly may have suffered a bit for the big Astros game, but energy level did not. I admit to having a Walkman packed in […]

Wednesday Sermon :: Marcos Witt – How to Scam Proof Your Life

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

Amazing … it was a day when it seemed everything could go wrong. Exactly like one of those moments that Pastor Joel preaches about … when we’re inclined to just throw ourselves one big pity party for all the things that go wrong, thereby missing out on the positives that come into our lives. Things […]

Wednesday Sermon :: Everyday, Ordinary Worship

By PaulT / December 19, 2017

I’m almost inclined to start off by saying I don’t really have a whole lot to say about Paul’s sermon Wednesday. Primarily, that’s because it spoke to me in much the same way that Lisa Comes’ sermon on “Your Place Of Ministry In The Body Of Christ.” The focus of this sermon, however, was on […]
