Start Seeing Miracles

Miracle stories like the feeding of the 5,000 and stories like Chastity’s invite us to think about how God works in our lives. Certainly, God is not limited to interventions that we can explain with science. God can work through means we might label as coincidence or accident or serendipity or luck or natural processes […]

Rest for the Weary

There is also rest in Jesus through whatever valley, trial, worry, or fear we face today. The bread and the cup are a reminder that if God gave us Jesus, the costliest gift of all, God would give us everything else we need. If God saved us and made us God’s children through Jesus, if […]

The ”God is greater than our highs and lows” design is a spiritual reminder that our identity is not based on what we have accomplished for ourselves, nor is it determined by what we’ve failed to do. Life will continue to have highs and lows. Don’t waste them! Trust God through the highs and lows […]

MALACHI: Bored with God

MALACHI: Bored with God

When, in the name of Jesus, we show compassion for others, God is honored. The work of Christian discipleship is the antidote to spiritual boredom. When we accept God’s love for us and care for those God entrusts to us, we can truly gather on Sunday mornings to sing God’s praises. We can step into […]

HABAKKUK: Fortuitous Events

HABAKKUK: Fortuitous Events

We may not like the way the world is today. We may not like our elected leaders. We may not feel we have much control over our own destiny. But it is just possible, even highly probable, that God is working behind the scenes to fulfill God’s vision for the world. We often simply cannot […]

This is steadfast love. This is a love that if we strung all its attributes together it would look like steadfast-unrelenting-unfailing-patient-believing-hoping-enduring-love. This is amazing love! This love comes from God who is transforming us moment by moment and day by day. As we meet today to set our course for the coming year, it is […]
