Welcome to Oak Springs Community Church!

Welcome !

Thanks for visiting our website! Oak Springs Community Church is a group of believers dedicated to loving God and the people in our lives, for His glory. Our mission is to get the good news of Jesus Christ into the lives of the people we live with, work with, play with, and interact with. These relational connections we have are the ‘live wires’ God uses to transform lives! We hope that your visit here will be inspiring.

We meet together on Sunday mornings for worship and study of God’s Word. We welcome you to venture out to Grand Isle Senior Apartment Homes in Murrieta each Sunday at 11:00 AM to experience God in worship and to study God’s Word with us as we equip one another with the truth.

To say, “our doors are always open” would be a little misleading, for our “doors” belong to the Grand Isles. But it is an understanding of Oak Springs’ that we are ‘open doors’ to the love of God and His grace by the sheer fact of His open arms to us. We’ve been embraced by our Heavenly Father and we are just one of many of His open doors to the world He loves and gave His only begotten Son to rescue. So, we welcome you with open arms!

Good Monday morning...

… and in the world of sports, the video coverage of events has done a lot to expand the fan base of each sport, but it has also expanded the role of the official to every fan’s eye.  In one sense, the precision of a call is insured, but on the other hand, the integrity of the sport is compromised.  Take the U.S. Open for an example.

Dustin Johnson won the tournament yesterday on arguably one of the more challenging golf courses on the tour.  In golf, and one of the reasons I love the game, the integrity of the player has much to do with the final score.  For those who did not see the incident, when DJ was lining up for a putt, his ball moved.  He stepped away and told his caddie, his playing opponent, and ultimately called in an official who declared it playable where it was.  So, he went on with play.  You look at that and think, “Wow, the integrity of this game!”

Then, the video coverage was scrutinized by the golf officials and there was some question about the cause of the ball movement, so they changed the ruling of the official who made the call, and assessed the penalty at the end of the match, which was a mute point since DJ won by three strokes anyway.  Here’s my beef… the player did everything he was supposed to do, and the official was brought in to make a call.  Done!  The game is done correctly and the competition continues… should be ‘end of story.’

But the fiasco of the officials’ overruling their call, letting the player know that it would be further reviewed at the end of play leaving him with the uncertainty of his score for the last third of the round… as if the game isn’t already a mental war within each player… makes me think that the video coverage has created an unbalanced authority that, instead of insuring the integrity of the game, compromises it.

When officials change their calls, when authority is abused, when judgment gets out of hand, it gets ugly… just like in life.  When judgment overrules a person’s value or integrity… it gets ugly.  Let’s get back to living life and loving others with integrity… end of story!

For His glory,

Pastor Mike
