Dawn of Something New

We are all confronted with change, and sometimes that change can be exciting—the offer of a new job, the news that we’re going to be parents. But with change comes the fear of the unfamiliar. What if the best possible offer of change was different than anything we ever knew? How could we overcome the fear of the unknown to receive a better life in the future and certain joy right now? The message of Easter may just hold that…

I Am Not Afriad

Fear abounds in the Christmas story. Fear abounds in our world. But we don’t have to be afraid because God is with us. He’s present. He provides. He protects His promise. What does that feel like?

Finding Christmas

Long seasons of personal difficulty can make it hard to believe that there is a God who cares for us. But Luke’s telling of the events leading up to Christmas told through common people in Luke 1:5-25 might just suggest that God’s good news isn’t just for the masses—it’s personal too.

A Tale of Two Women

Sometimes we all feel bitter and as if God has forgotten us. But, that feeling isn’t unique to us in the 21st century. People in biblical times felt that way too.

Life-Changing Loyalty

A Boomer and a Millenial Go for a Walk

Every generation has its unique concerns and hopes for the future. These days, generational tension continues to intensify, particularly between Boomers and Millennials. What if it didn’t need to be this way? What if generations could serve each other and serve the world together? The book of 2 Kings gives us a beautiful picture of generational succession between Elijah and Elisha and how we can reclaim the ability to relate well with each other across generations. *Christ’s Church is a…

A Tale of Two Brothers

As we emerge from a global pandemic, many of us are finding that a year of social distancing has left us feeling…. socially distant.

The Way of Togetherness

Life may be slowly returning to normal, but experts say that many of us still feel like we’re stuck, not living as well or as happily as we want. We’re stuck languishing.

The Promises, Practices and People of God

We are all made for relational connection, but are feeling more lonely and disconnected than ever.

The Untidy Aftermath of Christmas

“Before the Prince of Peace had learned to walk and talk, he was a homeless refugee with a price on his head.” – N.T.
