The Chase 07-26-2014

We often hear about laying up our treasure in heaven; we don’t hear nearly enough about God laying up treasure.  We often talk about chasing after God; we don’t talk nearly enough about God chasing after us.  We can be a beautiful dance with our God.

Christ’s Way To Live 06-28-2014

Jesus gave the disciples the Mission – it was Who, What, How.  He challenged the disciples to see the Vision in prayer.  Today, we discover the Mission and Vision in Christ’s Way to Live.

More Than Forgiveness 05-31-2014

The Gospel is more than Forgiveness, more than Redemption, more than Transformation, more than Eternity, more than God’s Presence.  The Gospel isn’t complete without God choosing to dwell in and through us.

A Church of You 05-17-2014

When trying with all one’s might still isn’t enough, was God included?  He asks for love of Him to be first, love of others second and self is a distant last.

Naked Dancing 04-26-2014

When one looks into the mirror, does one see who they are or who they dream to be?  God desires honest looks in the mirror.  Truth requires surrender to the reality of who one truly is.  Denial of reality is like looking in the mirror and seeing something else.

A Place Where Dreams Come True 03-2-2014

When we have a dream for tomorrow and the next day, the next week, the next month, the next year, the next five years, we can get excited.  Some dreams will never be fulfilled.  It isn’t always about the dreams happening but about the process of dreaming.

Accepting the Accepted 02-08-2014

The desire of every human is to have someone believe in him or her.  God believes in every person and uses the church to show His acceptance of every person.

Interrogate Reality 05-18-2013

When was the last time you sat down to read the Bible and before you started reading, your prayer for insights included asking God to take away your personal biases and religious barriers?  God invites his followers to interrogate the Scriptures in an effort to leave our present confusion and move into a place of Holy Spirit enlightenment.
