“Jesus, All I Want for Christmas is You.”

There is a popular Christmas song out by Mariah Carey called, “All I Want for Christmas is You.”  It’s got a good beat, she has a great voice, and the song plays frequently on the radio and Pandora.  As I listened to her sing it this morning, I thought about [...]

Praise God for His Creation!

Nick and I just returned from a lovely weekend in New Mexico.  We started our journey in Albuquerque, where Nick attended a few meetings, and I got some much appreciated downtime.  After his meetings ended, we drove a little north and spent a couple days in Santa Fe.  What a [...]

“… Just Take a Walk!”

I recently received the following email from our conference office encouraging us to participate in a Harvest Prayer Walk on October 8th: “Prayer puts feet to our response to the many spiritual, mental and physical needs we see in our communities.  God is calling his people to pray for our [...]

More Than Just a Building

How do you define the Church?  Is it just a building?  A house of worship?  Or is it so much more?  I hope you know it is so much more. Last week, I was in bed with the flu.  The high temperature, body aches, coughing, flat on your back for [...]

A Flawed and Loyal Disciple

In the book, “Twelve Ordinary Men,” John McArthur describes Peter as “eager, aggressive, bold, and outspoken — with a habit of revving his mouth while his brain was in neutral.” (Twelve Ordinary Men, pg. 31)  He says, “Peter was impetuous, impulsive, and over-eager.” (pg. 35) Sounds pretty accurate.  Peter was [...]


He is risen!  He is risen, indeed!  What do those words mean to you?  It is the resurrection of Jesus that separates us from all other religions.  “Only Christianity has a God who became human, literally died for his people, and was raised again in power and glory to rule [...]
