Vibrant Worship

A COMMENTARY BY BISHOP WILLIAM NICHOLSON Today, Saturday, February 1, 2014, I was thinking about vibrant worship.  I would like to share a couple of thoughts that I have gleaned in regards to bringing vitality into the local Church.  If the Church has no life, no love, no unity among the leaders and if one feels they are just going through the motions, something is wrong in the Church. If there is a lack of emphasis upon the leadership of the Holy Spirit who empowers the local Church, you may be missing out!  God forbid that this happens in any … Read More…

A 2014 Vision for the Moravian Church

Message by Bishop William Nicholson January 26, 2014 Matthew 4:12-23 In Matthew 4, we find Jesus at the very beginning of his public ministry.

Moravians, Let’s Speak Honorably!

According to God’s word, we must always “overcome evil with good”. Paul the Apostle tells us this in Romans 12: 9-17, which is Love in Action . May “overcoming evil with good” always be our goal as we continue relationship with Moravians in Alaska and Moravians for that matter in other areas of the world. Since I have heard of some distasteful comments about the Anchorage Moravian Church, recently, from a former Moravian leader’s wife, I would like to clear the air of any error! And to do this in a spirit of humility but state some very real facts … Read More…
