400 Years

“Lord give me patience and give it to me NOW!” No one likes to wait. Today’s society values instant and on-demand. From microwaves to fast food, we are programmed not to wait. If we are at the supermarket and the lines are long, we complain that the store really doesn’t care about their customers, otherwise […]

But we are not celebrating the fact that it happened, or the ramifications of someone else’s carelessness. Needless to say, I’ve struggled to figure out what to write […]

The Profound Simplicity of Prayer

September has arrived which means our Missional Focus for this month is prayer! Why is it that we have such a difficult time in appropriating the privilege of prayer?  You cannot read the Gospels without noticing how important prayer was to Jesus.  As you read the words of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, you become […]

A Rebellious Son

Jesus tells a story in Luke 15 about a father and his two sons. It’s a very typical family with its own set of drama and family upsets which climax when the younger son asks for his half of the family inheritance to run away and party. By saying this to the father, the younger […]

Searching for Patience

The summer seems to be flying by faster (and hotter) than ever. I don’t know about you, but I really feel like the missional themes for August, patience gentleness and grace, are exactly what I need to be reminded of right now!
