Tim’s Place Where breakfast, lunch and HUGS are served
Here’s 3-min of LOVE. We LOVE this! Tim Harris owns his own restaurant – where hugs are on the menu! The sign says, “Tim’s Place: Breakfast, lunch and hugs!” Tim has Down Syndrome – and is, we are told, the only restaurant owner with Down Syndrome.
Greetings guests at the door with a hug – you can see the joy he gets from serving people food – and from giving a little bit of love! As Tim says, “We serve breakfast lunch and hugs: hugs are the best part!” The Albuquerque restaurant calls itself “the world’s friendliest restaurant!” Owning a restaurant has been a lifetime dream: “When he was 14 years old, he said he wanted to own a restaurant.” Tim sums up his philosophy of being a restauranteur – and life: “Food is food. I give them a hug and then they all feel better!” Read the rest of this entry
The world is filled with religions that seem like they are competing for the most followers. Traditionally certain religions have been in specific geographic areas, but with the change of our society and the mobilization of almost everyone, World Religions in America reflect the beliefs of people from every corner of the globe or world map.
Each of the major world religions in America has a symbol that represents its beliefs, dogmas, and followers. For people in the Western World the cross may have been the most familiar symbol but now we have learned more about many more of the symbols although some of these are still unknown to most people. You may have seen the bumper sticker that uses different religious symbols to spell out the word co-exist. Read the rest of this entry
Entertainment is a big part of our culture, but that doesn’t mean it’s always a good thing. In this sermon, Greg talks about the effects entertainment has on us, and how it might be a deeper spiritual activity than we first thought.

We are studying the book of Colossians of our church history. So we are all the way up to Colossians Chapter 2 Verses 8 thru 10. I’m going to be trying to save a little bit of time at the end of the service for some questions. So if you have questions as we are going through this service, you can send it to that number. You can dial in that number and we’ll get to as many as we can. We’re going to try something here at the end of the service. There is always more questions than we can get to and folks have lots of things they want to talk about. And so I am going to for about 15 minutes go back at the end of the service (I usually stay up here and talk to people) but I am going to be line back to our prayer chapel back there and sit for whoever else wants to come… for 15 or 20 minutes… and just have questions and Q&A back there. So if you want to be part of that, you’re invited as well but there’s limited space so first come first serve… no pushing or punching is allowed, so there you go! Read the rest of this entry
When you experience even a mediocre connection with God it can get elevated by people around you, but that might not be because your connection is so strong. Maybe it’s because we live in a place when materialism and selfishness are just the norm. Maybe our even slight attempts at reaching out to God are simple not that great but we feel good because of where everyone else it at.
Consider what Francis Chan has to share and don’t look around at others and compare how you’re doing, but take an inward look at the true depth of your spirituality.
The pattern of Christmas is to buy gifts for people that usually are not needed items. In this sermon, we look at the book of James and how faith must be found in our actions to the poorest of the poor, and an alternative to the usual pattern of Christmas is given.
Divorce happens. In this sermon, Greg speaks on when marriages go wrong. With divorce rates nearly the same inside as outside of the church, it is important to have a Kingdom understanding of divorce and remarriage, and how to answer the question: “When is it OK to divorce?”
