  • If God Is For Us, Who Can Be Against Us


    When we have the opportunity to celebrate a special moment in our life, we may want to choose to make changes that could affect our whole life. 

    Remember, changes are OK to make in most situations, but be patient and limit your changes graciously. Don’t be ashamed to ask God for some advice.

  • Grace Notes


    I don’t know why I was so surprised, but I was.

    A few weeks ago, my pastor spoke on a controversial topic, racism, and did an absolutely amazing job, balancing truth and grace.

    That’s not what surprised me.

    What surprised me was learning that he was attacked for it, the target of mean-spirited vitriol, face-to-face encounters and emails.

    People love grace, but truth? Not so much.
