Advent Reflection #3: There were Shepherds in the Field

By Rev. Bob Ragan | December 17, 2018
The angel announcing the birth of Jesus could have visited any number of people. However, the angel specifically spoke to a group of shepherds who were tending their sheep. The shepherds were terrified upon seeing the angel. Not only did they see this angel shining with God’s glorious light, but then, many more angels appeared. … Continued

Advent Reflection #2: The Sacrificial Gifts of the Magi

By Rev. Bob Ragan | December 10, 2018
I believe nothing mentioned in the Scriptures is by chance. Each example or story contains meaningful or hidden truths. The story of the three wise men: Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthazar, as written in Matthew 2:1-12, I feel is one worthy of deeper contemplation. To make this journey, these three men were deeply motivated and inspired. … Continued

Advent Reflection #1: Making Himself Nothing

By Rev. Bob Ragan | December 4, 2018
“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.” Philippians 2:5-7 (NIV) I … Continued

Sexual Sin and Self-Sufficiency

By Rev. Bob Ragan | January 15, 2018
Overcoming life-dominating sinful behaviors often begin with a crisis of truth. Everyone who struggles with sexual sin or any other kind of pervasive sinful behavior will have such a moment in their lives when they will be faced with the truth of God’s word and the resulting decision(s) they make in the face of that … Continued

Sense of Well-Being

By Rev. Bob Ragan | October 9, 2018
We make resolutions every New Year to exercise more, and some of us do. We try the new diets, and foods with organic or all-natural labels fly off the shelves. People love to care about health. But unfortunately, what falls to the wayside in that quest to be physically healthy is spiritual and emotional well-being. … Continued

Revealing Shame

By Rev. Bob Ragan | October 2, 2018
On the surface, shame can be seen as a tool which can keep us aware of our manners, our surroundings, our volume levels. There are those who will say that shameless people are the people who are brash, hasty, impulsive, or loud, and that a healthy dose of shame is what keeps each person a … Continued

The Reality Of Desire

By Rev. Bob Ragan | January 15, 2018
“Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, ‘What are you seeking?’” ~John 1:38 Do you know what you want?  For what do you wish?  What do you seek?  Each human being, every day of their life, wrestles in some way, shape or form with desire. As human beings, made in the image … Continued

What Lies Beneath (cont’d)

By Rev. Bob Ragan | February 3, 2015
Intimacy (In-to-me-see) There were no masks, posing, or facades between Adam and Eve before the brokenness of sin entered the world.  This is hard for us to imagine.  Adam and Eve’s exterior and interior were naked and unashamed.  They could intuit each other’s humanity.  They could see the real in each other.  They saw into … Continued

What Lies Beneath

By Rev. Bob Ragan | February 3, 2015
I was recently given the daunting task to give a comprehensive lecture on the topic of sex within one hour. How could I possibly do justice to this topic in such a short amount of time? Of course I knew to seek the Lord’s leading on how to best face this challenge and was shown … Continued

Sacred Sex

By Rev. Bob Ragan | January 11, 2013
“I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” Sir Isaac Newton I love seashells. My affection for them began as a boy growing up in Cleveland, Ohio.  … Continued
