Heaven Opened

So, as you can see, heaven being opened is a pretty big deal. The baptism of Jesus marked the beginning of God’s Kingdom on earth. God came in human form to begin the transformation of the world, and what God began, God will bring to completion, for the God who promises is faithful.

Christmas Pageant 2017

Mountains would have bowed down. Seas would have roared. Trees would have clapped their hands. But the earth held its breath. As silent as snow falling, he came in. When no one was looking, into the darkness, he came

From Fad to Foundation

 Foundational living is not easy, which is why it is so critical that we cling Jesus’ words which last forever instead of the fleeting fads the world proffers.

When Jesus Drops In

When Jesus Drops In

Jesus made his first delivery to Emmaus, and he continues to drop in on us today. He comes as a stranger, interpreting the Scriptures to us. He arrives as a guest, giving us opportunities to serve. And he swoops in as a host, offering us the gift of himself in the breaking of the bread. […]

No Memorial Needed

No Memorial Needed

On Easter Sunday, we come to remember the moment when life changed forever. We come to remember that Jesus, the one who cares for us, who loves and accepts us, is raised from the dead. He is alive! Death is defeated. Life wins. No memorials are needed, save one: our lives.

A Grave Solution

A Grave Solution

The empty tomb challenges us to adopt higher thinking and a resurrection perspective. The resurrection gives spiritual wholeness for all aspects of life: body, mind, conscience, emotions, reason, will, and so forth. This life is now committed to God and the things of God. And this commitment becomes the “manager” of the other dimensions of […]
