Shall I Proceed With This Blog?

Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2017

I am profoundly thankful for my blog friends this  year.  And…I could use your help.

As of January 1, 2018 I will have retired from Cornerstone and I will have far more time to write.  Hence, I am considering a new blog thru which I can share a Biblical view of current events as I am led of the Lord.

BUT…perhaps I should simply continue to write on this site “” ….hmmmm…….

Here is how you could help me make this decision: if you have received this note and if you would be interested in receiving articles produced on please send me a quick note.  Nothing complicated.  Even just a simple “I’m interested!”

I’ll post a few articles as well in the days ahead and see if there is much interest.  OK?  Everyone is busy I know!  So…let me say in advance  “Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!”

Blessings! Pastor Alberta

    Funny you wrote today, I visited your blog earlier this week and hadn’t lately. More posts from you would be a welcome sight. I am working many hours these days but would make time to read your blog Richard. I was also curious as to whether you and Donna were still at Cornerstone, the church has been so blessed to have you. You have been such a blessing to me as well. If you all get out the Arizona way (we are just west of Phoenix 30 miles) on any travel adventures please look us up, I’d love to introduce you to my wife Stacey and I’d love to see you. Continued blessings in Christ…

  43. Lee and Donna Oeffner

    Donna and I certainly would be interested in receiving anything and everything that you have to say.
    We were so sorry that we left for California for three months the very Sunday that was your “retirement” service but did get to watch it on the cornerstone site later.
    In the short time that Donna has been with me at Cornerstone she almost immediately became very impressed with the Church and especially with your preaching style and your captivating way of keeping everyone’s attention. She and I also enjoy pastor Tweedie and Pastor Hunt and the Primetimers weekly meeting.
    In spite of one area of difference of opinion I have to tell you that we both were very dismayed when we learned you were retiring.
    I think anyone would have a tough time replacing you in a Church the size of Cornerstone. There are a lot of older members like ourselves and realize that times are changing, but it is hard to adjust to the more contemporary music and preaching. I do hope the Church will continue to grow and flourish but I think a great many of us that are in our 70 or 80 plus age group will have to be gone and with the Lord for that to happen
    In the meantime we will be looking forward to seeing any of your books that you might be publishing in the future.
    We you smooth sailing and many well deserved years of enjoying traveling, writing or possibly being invited to preach occasionally somewhere in this great country.
