God Bless Us, Whoever We Are

By Pastor Phil Konz | Jul 01

Did you know we live in the United States of Henry? Well, we would have if Vespucci, the explorer that gave his name to the “new world” continents, had been English instead of Italian. The name Amerigo was the Italian version of the Hungarian saint name Emeric, a prince of Hungary who died in 1021. […]

Free Will in a Labyrinth

By Pastor Phil Konz | Jun 25

Did you know that you cannot get lost in a labyrinth? You can get lost in a maze. The labyrinth has many twists and turns, but only one path available between the lines. You will eventually reach the center or the exit, depending on which way you are traveling. A maze has many twists and […]

Does God have a plan for me?

By Pastor Phil Konz | Apr 16

The way most people understand this question, I think I have to say “No.” When we think of plans, we think of detailed blueprints for building or carefully orchestrated actions by a tactical squad. We want to think God has every second of our life planned out so that everything leads to the best possible outcomes. […]

Easter’s Blessedness

By Pastor Phil Konz | Apr 02
