BEWARE THE DEMON...


12/12/2012 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

...FAMILIARITY! Now, if you are participating in Essential Jesus and have never read much of the Bible, then this post might not apply to you (yet). But if, like me, you have been a somewhat regular student of the Word of God for a long period of time (say, 40 years, give or take a few major lapses…or I should say, “relapses”), ...

JUST ANOTHER HOPE SPRINGS KIND OF DAY


6/11/2012 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

We’re certainly not the biggest church around, nor the most efficiently managed or well organized, and certainly not like the typical or traditional church that you might have grown up in. We don’t have the slickest facilities nor the best location to be positioned for growth (of course, that is completely relative to who you are trying...

The Barbees NOT in Thailand...


5/4/2012 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

...INSTEAD, CHRIS & DORA ARE HERE IN THE USA for a brief tour and they will be rocking the house (ok, maybe I'm getting a little carried away)...sharing their story of what God has been doing in Thailand over the past two years. Word has it that Chris will even be sitting in with the band and leading us in a song following their message (so, ...

E100 CHALLENGE


1/10/2012 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

Day 1 of the E100 Challenge begins at a very predictable place...the beginning, Genesis 1 & 2. The accounts of creation testify to the truth that God does everything with purpose and there is purpose in all he does and purpose for all he created. There is a definite order of purpose in the creation account of Genesis 1. What I mean is that ...

A VERY, VERY, VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!


12/24/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

It’s been a truly amazing week around Hope Springs Church, and as I sit at my desk at home this Christmas Eve morning I am overwhelmed with gratitude. It started last Sunday (12/18) when three persons for the first time invited Jesus into their lives as Lord and Savior during our Sunday morning worship celebration. It continued throughout the...

A MIRACLE OF GIVING


10/11/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

I’m not sure what your definition of “miracle” is, but for me anytime a group of people experience God acting on their behalf to do in and through them something they cannot do for themselves, then the term applies. Most times we look for the spectacular and the instantaneous in our miracles, but I tend to look at those things ...

IT'S OFFICIAL! I HATE MICE!


8/19/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

Well, I at least hate the “mouse” on my laptop, that is. I now know why that part of computer technology is named after a disease-carrying rodent! Why all the rage, you ask? Because last night at 11:30pm (central time) I was putting the finishing touches to a brilliant, inspirational (yet humble) Scattered Seed blog article when my ...

FREEDOM OFFERING UPDATE


7/30/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

You know how it is when you are climbing Mt. Everest, the highest point on the planet, and the summit first comes into view and, even though you are still days away from reaching it and the wind’s blowing and the temperature is freezing and every muscle in your body is cramping, yet you hardly notice the brutal conditions because you are just...

BIKE FOR FREEDOM_Day 3 (pre-ride) Report


7/4/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

This morning as my alarm awakened me at 6:45 am two truths learned over the course of my lifetime were once again confrimed.

1) My 15 year old brain and my 54 year old body are not on the same page! My 15 year old brain wins on the front end with messages like, "Sure, I can ride a bike 90 miles in three days with a minimum amount of ...

BIKE FOR FREEDOM_Day 2


7/3/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

Day 2 is in the books with 8 team members (same 5 from Day 1 plus Dave Brown, Grant Baker & Kim Calhoun) riding 22 miles to bring the two day total to 59 miles. You might call Day 2 the adversity day as we dealt with a couple of issues along the way - flat tire, high heat & high humidity (sure did miss those overcast skies from day 1), a ...

BIKE FOR FREEDOM_Day 1


7/2/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

"DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?!"

OK, so maybe it didn't reach the magnitude of the US hockey team winning the gold medal in the 1980 Winter Olympics and that wasn't Al Michaels making the call at the finish line, but I did ride 37 miles on a bicycle this morning!

Day 1 of the 2011 Bike for Freedom is in the books and we had an ...

FREEEEDOM!!!!


7/1/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

With apologies to Mel Gibson and William Wallace the following blog entry is really just a duplicate from the web site announcement page about this year's Freedom Offering at Hope Springs Church. But since I wrote the thing I guess I can post it wherever I so choose, even if that means twice. In other words, I'm really committed to this cause and I...

WHO KNEW?!


6/24/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

I realize I've been a bit remiss on my blog postings of late, but who knew this was going to be so physically and mentally draining? The doctor says I am suffering from blogger's obstruction (sort of like writer's block but much more serious) but should recover with therapy. So, onward and upward with the pressing issues of the times.

First, I

Pedal Power


5/27/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (0)

I got back on my bike this week. Yeah, I know, that's not exactly breaking news, but it was quite a process. You see, last spring I started biking somewhat seriously. A friend gave me a ridiculously good deal on his bike - some 21-speed, high-end, road bike - so I started riding. At the time we (Hope Springs Church) were preparing to take a special...

HEAVEN ON MY MIND


5/19/2011 by David Calhoun
Comments (1)

Has anyone besides me noticed that gas prices have risen considerably? You have? Well, then I don’t have to tell you that it really stinks! I’ve been working on the old family budget this morning and way too many big expense entries begin with the words "Thornton's" and "Speedway!" It sort of makes me hope that ...
