A Morning Prayer II

Make this a morning counted well, numbered right,

grant me the wisdom to honor the Son’s dawning

and grant me the patience to find

healing in His wings.

May I learn, in the journey from east to west

and the fifteen waking hours between

just how great the love

and how full the mercy

and how far my sin is cast away.

Anxious and Worried About Many Things

Anxious and Worried About Many Things

In the last week we attended a wedding and a baptism. We witnessed the unity of a young man and woman becoming a new family. And we witnessed the unity of six new believers joining the family of the church. Both baptism and marriage are sacraments, sometimes called “a...

Church Matters… But Why?

Church Matters… But Why?

Each of us is in a corner of the world the other can't reach. I can't reach the people in a Georgia suburb like the people in the Georgia suburbs can. I can't reach the neighbor in southeast London like the people in southeast London can. You can't reach the people in...

The Cost of Real Community

The Cost of Real Community

Yesterday after our church's first service a group of families walked next door to the playground and, as our progeny swarmed the slides and swings, we talked about the cost of community. In the sermon this week, our pastors talked about the cost of Christian...

The Risk of Falling Back in Love

The Risk of Falling Back in Love

I want to be jealous. I look around at other couples and make up stories in my head – their life wasn’t as hard, their losses not so grievous, their betrayal not so deep. I think, we had it worse. But that’s a lie, because everyone born into this imperfect world is touched by that imperfection. We all carry hurts and we all pass through trials – some are just less visible than others. What we do in those trials, and who we become (the plural “we” of marriage) has the power to be a witness to this wasting world.

Live a Bold, Gracious Faith

Live a Bold, Gracious Faith

I travel a lot as a Bible teacher. I've been to all kinds of conventions, conferences, and women's retreats. Usually the goal of these events is something along the lines of "encouragement in Christ" - which is a great goal, something I hope all women gain from gospel...
