We love Gretchen’s heart – you can see it clearly here. ——————————- There’s a chilling sentence tucked in at the end of Judges 2, “And there arose another generation after them who did not know the LORD…”   How could that have happened?  And […]

Easter Does Not Fade

This post originally appeared on Peter’s preaching blog: Biblical Preaching. It’s a great place to explore and ponder preaching that shares God’s heart. ————————— Easter has come and gone for another year.  But Easter will never fade for God’s people.  Think about the Apostle Peter, for instance.  He was a rugged fisherman called by Jesus […]

A Different Kind of Resolution
