He added a highlight has been becoming a part of the community

Pastor Granillo: Fearless Love

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to love fearlessly? By that, I mean to love without the fears of disappointment, betrayal, rejection, or anything else that could hinder or prevent love.

Being open to love is scary because we know that it makes us vulnerable. And we know that people are capable of hurting us if we don’t set up guards—guards that protect us from getting hurt by others, but that can also prevent us from reaching out.

I spend a week every year at a youth camp, helping teens work through the everyday issues of life.

Faith & Science: Intelligent Design Theory Wednesday

Faith & Science:
Intelligent Design Theory

Everyone who accepts the Hebrew Scriptures as revealed truth believes in intelligent design of the universe and its inhabitants. But, what is this Intelligent Design (ID) Theory?

To its proponents, a few scientists and groups in the UK and US, it’s a scientific conclusion and method based on observations and logical deductions. To its detractors, including many scientists of faith and a Pennsylvania court, it’s not science and does not belong in science classrooms.

Pastor Granillo: Connectivity

I noticed a sign this week that reads, “Everything in life is connected!” I believe that to be a true statement, and I think most people would agree.

We are all connected to each other through many channels including family, work, or school. Today social media has ensured that we are connected or connectable to anyone anywhere. Of course the sign implies a deeper connection than just everyday relationships; it reminds us that our lives intersect with the lives of others and all of creation in countless ways that we may never see but exist all the same.

“Do you have any regrets?”

I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked that question. I hear it asked of people all the time. We seem to be very interested in how people feel about their choices. And why not? After all, how they feel about a choice they’ve made helps us decide if it a path is worth the effort or not.

For the longest time when asked, I would always answer, “No, of course not.

The faith and science talk for today, presented by Nelson Hoffman, deals with the idea of evolution, the meaning of the term, and various ways that Christians look at evolution (Evidence for or against evolution will be discussed by a future speaker).
The term evolution has several meanings: adaptation or microevolution, where traits of organisms go through a succession of relatively small genetic variations that often cause the formation of new subspecies; the observed changes in physical anatomy preserved by the fossil record; the general concept that all past and present
