Friending God - Abraham My Friend


April 28, 2019 - Pastor Barry Clair starts the New Series "Friending God" with the message "Abraham My Friend"

In a video blog this past week, Casey Neistat who has over eleven million subscribers to his YouTube™ channel, took an informal poll asking, "Do you think real intimacy can take place on Social Media alone?"

I watch Casey Neistat's video's.  I watch his YouTube™ channel, I'm a subscriber.  I don't always agree with everything he says or stands for, but he's kind of a social commentator in a way to the millennial age group.  So he asked the question, and I was shocked to discover the overwhelming response was No!

For true intimacy to exist, there has to be some sort of physical component.  Now that could be just a voice; in fact, I fell in love with my wife over the phone.

Myths About Jesus & The Resurrection


April 21, 2019 - Pastor Barry Clair shares the Easter message "Myths About Jesus & The Resurrection"

One of the most unfortunate characters in the death and resurrection narrative of Jesus is the Roman Governor Pontius Pilate.  Here is a man caught in the middle.  He is in a Catch-22 place.  He's truly between a rock and a hard place.  Here's a guy who can't get it right.  He's in a lose-lose situation.  It's his job to
adjudicate in the matter of Jesus of Nazareth versus the Jewish Religious State.  And though often portrayed as a bad guy, I truly believe, from my reading of the Gospel accounts, that Pilate was a conscientous leader.  I believe Pontius Pilate was really trying to get it right.
