Update on Compliance

by: Bradley Berglund

In my previous blog, I mentioned that I spoke to a fellow pastor who was offering two services every Sunday: a mask compliant and a mack optional. Within the last few weeks, that church is now fully mask compliant. The optional service is gone.

We received word today that the Grace Community Church in California (pastored by Dr. John  MacArthur) has had its rights to worship indoors restored by a judge. They must wear masks and practice social distancing, but...

First the good news: People are now able to return to our church building. We are permitted to worship with others.

Now the bad news: Restrictions prevent us from returning to normalcy. Bulletins and hymnals are gone. Singing inside the building is restricted to soloists. People must sit 6 feet apart, and those entering our building must wear masks. As before, there is no end in sight for these measures.

We are always lookin...

The Other Side of the Stay-at-Home Order

I was asked, “Why can’t we meet on Easter in the church parking lot like other churches?” It sure sounded like a good idea. Until …

We are hearing of other churches across this nation who “congregate” in the church parking lot. They broadcast the service live over an FM radio frequency. The people who attend are instructed to stay in their vehicles without exception. No one is allowed to e...

It is hard to miss that the Super Bowl is being played this weekend in Minneapolis. The hometown was hoping for the honor that they would be the first Super Bowl to host the home team. It almost happened. Instead, they are going down in the record books as the coldest Super Bowl of all time. . . . . . . . . . .

Symbols of honor have always existed whether it be rings or medals. In Roman times, a leafy garland would be worn as a crown on the heads of champions...

Many years ago, a young photographer showed me one of his favorite photos. ............... It was not exceptional for its beauty - it was quite humorous (ironic). ............. The photograph was set on a gray November day. The trees in the background were leafless. The object in the center was a street sign. It read, “Old Cemetery Road.” Beneath it, another sign was mounted on the pole. It said, “Dead End.” .............................

I recentl...

Wise Men Still Seek Him, BUT ...

Here is a piece of Christmas trivia. ............

According to the Bible, how many wise men visited Jesus in the stable in Bethlehem? .............

The answer is NONE. ............,

Two false assumptions are often made. The first is that the wise men arrived on that first Christmas night. The fact is that Matthew 2:11 states that the wise men went to a “house” and not to a stable or a cave. Jesus was no longer a newbor...

The Name of Jesus Is Special

From Sunday's Sermon on the Third Commandment ..........

The Name of Jesus ought to be treated with reverence, ...................

It grieves me to the core to discover that a new ice cream shop is opening in the Mall of America. The name of the establishment is SWEET JESUS. ..................

While His name deserves better, the name of Jesus must be magnified in a world that wishes to suppress it. Prayers to the Almighty God must be m...

Faith to Hear the Silent Notes

What exactly is “faith?" ..............

Is it merely believing in something that cannot be proven, or is there more to it? ..........................

February, 2009 - Submitted to the Beacon ...................

At a recent prayer meeting, I was told of a young pianist who is working on a doctor’s degree in performance. According to his professor, the young man has abilities that leave his peers far behind. To ...
