Love the Church

April 10, 2014

In Ephesians 5:25-27 Paul writes about the love Jesus has for the church. He loves the church so much that he gave his life for the church (Eph. 5:25). The church is the bride of Christ. The church is something we should love and cherish. What does this mean? What does it mean to love […]

The Problem With Liberal and Conservative Labels

March 22, 2014

The rally call of the restoration movement was to be Christians only. Preachers and others called people to give up labels that caused division and just be Christians. Sadly, we have gotten away from this restoration principle and we have both accepted and given labels that are not found in Scripture. The labels that now […]

Son of God

March 8, 2014

On Saturday a group of about twenty people from our congregation gave up our afternoon to go and watch a movie about Jesus. We had a great time. Our group was composed of people from all ages. We had children, teens, adults, and seniors all go. We met at the church and then carpooled to […]

Mending the Cracks

March 4, 2014

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will […]

The Importance of Conversations

January 10, 2014

Part of being human is having conversations and part of living in community is conversing with one another. The conversations we have matter. Most of us cannot go a day without having a conversation, but what kind of conversations are we having? What are they about? What is the content of these conversations? We have […]

A Prayer By Clement of Alexandria

December 11, 2013

Be kind to your little children, Lord: that is what we ask of you as their Tutor, you the Father, Israel’s Guide; Son, yes, but Father as well. Grant that by doing what you have told us to do, we may achieve a faithful likeness to the Image and, as far as is possible for […]

God Is With Us

December 10, 2013

We live in a volatile world, a world that is constantly changing. Borders change. Economies change. Climates change. Governments change. How we take in knowledge changes. We live in a world that is constantly evolving and this makes many of us uneasy. Some of us may enjoy minor changes from time to time, but most […]

Baby Son

December 4, 2013

I discovered John Mark McMillan a couple of years ago and I have been thoroughly impressed ever since. He is a Christian artist who is not like most Christian artists. To be honest, I am not impressed with a lot of Christian music. I think much of it is shallow and not good musically. John […]

A Brush With Violence

November 5, 2013

Last Wednesday I was sitting in a coffee shop having coffee with a couple of friends when I received a text from my wife. The text said, “We’re all okay.” This was supposed to be a comforting text from my wife, but it was not comforting in any way. In fact, it was disturbing. I […]

Lead Us Not Into Temptation

October 9, 2013

Have you been tempted lately? The more we pray and the more we trust in God the more likely it is that Satan will tempt us. In Jesus’ life Satan comes after him immediately following his baptism. In the book of Job Satan went after a man who was “blameless and upright.” We might think […]
