Announcing the MCBC Christian Education Blog!

May 1, 2023

Welcome to the Christian Education blog! In conjunction with the new Mount Calvary Baptist Church website (, we launch a weekly Christian Education blog.

In this blog, I hope to help you think through everyday life with a Christian worldview. It will include contemporary events and issues that impact our lives. You will have the opportunity to comment, and I welcome your discussion.

Here are a few guidelines for your comments:

  • Before commenting, understand what others say: “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” (James 1:19 NIV).
  • Be gracious and patient with others: “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone” (Colossians 4:6 NIV). Do not use profanity.
  • Give thanks for the blog and comments that help you: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:16 NIV).
  • Encourage others: “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing” (1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV).
  • Use Scripture, not feelings. It is good to be passionate, but base your comments on Scripture.

Please note that the blog posts are my opinions and do not reflect the views or policies of Mount Calvary Baptist Church.

What everyday life events and issues are important to you? I am looking for your input on subjects for this blog. Please take a minute and respond with a few ideas.

See you next week!

Grace and peace.
