Inside the Wedding Ring - Romans 15:5-7 - Apr 20, 2007 - 738

I was twenty-five years old and fresh out of seminary when I became the pastor of a small church in Downey, California. I stayed there almost five years and then moved to Garland, Texas to pastor another church for five-and-a-half years. Then we moved to Oak Park, IL where I served as pastor for jus ... More

God's Multicultural Church - Romans 15:7-13 - May 12, 2007 - 739

The term multicultural is much in the news these days. Politicians and social scientists use it to describe a certain approach to American society in which persons are treated in special ways depending upon their racial or ethnic background. This approach is very controversial because critics argue ... More

Why We Pray - Romans 15:30-33 - Aug 30, 2007 - 743

A quarter-century ago, when we were living in the Los Angeles area, I attended an all-day seminar on prayer led by Warren Wiersbe. Those who know Dr. Wiersbe will not be surprised when I say that it was an extremely profitable day. I still remember his first words. He looked at us for a moment as if ... More

In 1978 Michael Hart wrote a book called “The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential People in History.” In it he ranked the most important people in the history of the world, taking into account the people they influenced, they movements they started, the impact they made, and the legac ... More

Letter From a Friend - Romans 15 - Mar 6, 2007 - 737

Risky Business: The Other Side of Christian Freedom - Galatians 5:13-15 - Aug 12, 2001 - 258

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free” (Galatians 5:1a). What exactly is this Christian freedom that Paul talks so much about in Galatians? In order to help us understand the answer, I’d like to borrow a definition and an illustration used by Pastor John Piper of Bethlehem Bapti ... More

Praying With Paul - Jan 5, 2003

PRAYING WITH PAUL by Ray Pritchard Our 2003 church theme is “Lord, Teach Us to Pray.” If you wonder how we choose the themes each year, the answer is, “It varies.” Sometimes the pastors spend a long time discussing it and sometimes the answer comes very quickly. This year the the ... More

I’m Coming To Rome Someday, I Hope: Seven Reflections on Knowing the Will of God - Romans 15:22-29 - Aug 25, 2007 - 742

Romans 15:22-29 offers a fascinating glimpse into the mind of the Apostle Paul. Essentially it is Paul’s answer to the question, “Why haven’t you visited Rome yet?” We know from Romans 1:11-13 that though he longed to visit the church at Rome, he had been prevented by his dut ... More

When Christians Disagree - Acts 15:36-41 - Oct 31, 1993 - 388

We Christians disagree a lot, sometimes about the craziest things. I don’t know if you know it or not, but Christians have been disagreeing with each other since the very beginning. It goes all the way back to the days of the New Testament. When you read Romans and I Corinthians, you discov ... More

When Christians Disagree - Acts 15:36-41 - Mar 12, 2007 - 776

Christians disagree about almost everything. And when we disagree, we usually start a new church. Which reminds me of a story I heard a few years ago. A Scottish Presbyterian is rescued after many years of living alone on a desert island. When he is picked up, the captain says to him, “I thoug ... More

Ballistic Christianity - Matthew 9:35-38 - Feb 25, 2007 - 803

It must have been about twenty-two years ago that our family attended a week-long Bible conference at a Christian conference center near North Platte, Nebraska.

So That ... - Sep 19, 2004

SO THAT by Ray Pritchard Recently I picked up a useful insight from some friends who were eating supper with us. Somehow the conversation turned to prayer, and a man shared an insight that was new to me. “When I pray,” he said, “I always try to include the phrase ’so that.&r ... More

The Shocking Servant - Isaiah 52:13-15 - Mar 14, 2014 - 1504

Are all mountains equal? It depends on what you mean by “equal.” When I was growing up in northwest Alabama, I lived a few miles from Spruce Pine Mountain. You had to go over the mountain if you were traveling to Birmingham. Spruce Pine Mountain was a true mountain in that you drove ... More
