How Our Pain Might Comfort Others…

From 1 Corinthians 1:3-7 (NLT) All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God […]

The Town Of Jesus :: Winter 2015

It’s almost like God really enjoys defying everyone’s expectations.  Perhaps this is most evident in the Son of God, Himself, Jesus… fully God, fully man, and completely original.  And among the many ways Jesus defied expectation is this little fact… instead of “being everywhere” like he could have been, Jesus chose one large town in the […]

New Year, New Message Series, New Challenges

I knew this message series was coming… I just wasn’t sure what to call it.  As part of the “Original Blockbuster” mega-series taking us periodically through some of the most important stories from the Hebrew Scriptures (“Old Testament” is the more widely used term, but I prefer the other), we’re coming up on a difficult […]

Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good.  His unfailing love continues […]

Dear Person Who Vandalized Our Church Sign…

Dear (insert your name, person who vandalized our church sign last week), I feel compelled to tell you that our sign, much like our church, was largely unaffected by your decision to take our sign from its proper location, throw it in the street, and run over it with your vehicle.  As you can see, the sign […]

Fall 2014 Message Series

In September/October 2014, we’re going to spend some time in one of the most popular, yet most mysterious, letters the Apostle Paul ever wrote… Ephesians.  Known as “The Epistle To The Ephesians,” this book of the New Testament is referred to as the “Queen” of the Apostle Paul’s writings.  It’s popularity is due in part […]
