Michael W. Spangler is pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Muscatine, Iowa.
Psalm 68: 1-10, 33-36John 17:1-11Acts 1:6-141 Peter 4:12-14; 5:6-11
Two churches in Moscow. One Baptist, one Orthodox. One buried in an inner-city neighborhood, one sitting out in a muddy suburb. Neither one with any exterior beauty. Yet both are indelible chapters in my faith story.
Psalm 66:7-18John 14:15-21Acts 17:22-311 Peter 3:13-22
Just where Lenin Avenue makes a turn, coming out of downtown Moscow and heading out toward the southwest suburbs, stands St. Nicholas's Church.
