Computers and Vocation

May 17, 2017 Aaron Simms

I got my first computer when I was about 5 or 6 years old, living in Schofield Barracks, Hawaii.  It was a Commodore 64 that my Dad bought at the Army PX for about $300.  It was around 1983.  Even though […]

Not Abandoned

Easter Sunday – He is Risen!

April 16, 2017 Aaron Simms

He is Risen!  He is Risen Indeed!  Alleluia! That’s the reason we’re celebrating Easter today isn’t it?  We’re celebrating because Jesus “has risen, as he said.”  He instituted his Lord’s Supper on Thursday, was crucified on Friday between two criminals, brought down […]
