Easter, For Me

When it comes to Easter, we are truly spoiled. Even though the Bible is a huge collection of documents, most of biblical history is covered in sweeping narratives, or glimpses into specific occasions. But once we come to Easter, we have four accounts that give great detail about that week leading up to the crucifixion […]

Until the Sting is Gone

This is another great post from our friend Gretchen. Be sure to read her others: here and here ——————- I don’t know many people who have gotten very far into adult life without having experienced deep pain at the hands of another person.

It’s a topic worth revisiting on a regular basis even apart from these reminders. Conversations are the threads that make up the fabric of life and our […]

Space to Dream

We live in a world that seems to go faster every year. The phone in my pocket is faster than any computer I’d ever met just a few years ago. Emails, facebook updates, tweets, and so on, just keep coming faster and faster. I don’t want to sound critical about technology and the information age […]

From the Brink of Death

This is another guest post from our friend Gretchen. We’re very grateful to her for her prayers and support! ———————————- Do you ever find yourself reading narratives in the Bible and thinking, “I would never do what those people did!”?   I had one of those moments recently while reading through the book of Numbers. Korah […]

Soil Samples

Jesus offered a parable about the types of soil farmers find in casting seed. He then explained the parable. Those who hear God’s word are the soil and the quality of the soil defines the fruitfulness of a teaching ministry. As context, Jesus was preaching God’s word and was finding mixed responses from the crowds. […]
