The Curtain Torn in Two

Our prayers for this Holy Week leading up to Easter are that you get a fresh sense of what Christ dying on the Cross means for us. To us, one of the most powerful and personal verses in the Bible is Matthew 27:51. Here is the context; we read in Exodus 26-27 that in the Tabernacle the Most Holy Place […]

Palm Sunday

Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, you shall […]

Through the Eyes of the Sheep

“The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, […]

God, help me know You are near!

In a world filled with people and things vying for your attention and affection we often don’t (or can’t) give our attention or affection to anyone or anything, and in the process we end up feeling alone and isolated. Today we want to tell you that God longs for intimacy with you. We are told in Scripture that if we […]

What Is Your Jordan River?

Picture yourself hiking on a path. You come to a shallow and narrow creek. Without hesitation you simply step over the water and voilà, you are on the other side, without even getting your shoes wet. In life we face many decisions like this; ones that can be often made without too much thought or stress. You probably did not […]

When You Feel Like You Are Sinking

Life is not always smooth sailing. Sure there are days when the skies are sunny and cloudless and the seas are smooth as glass. But there are also days when the clouds are dark and gloomy and the waves are crashing onto your boat. Maybe after some routine blood work the doctor calls and says, “We need to talk.” Or […]

God and March Madness

It is that time of year. The first day of spring is a few days away. In some areas of the country, daffodils are in bloom and trees are beginning to bud. The snow has melted (except maybe in those lovely piles in parking lots!). In our area, the smell of food being cooked on grills is beginning to waft […]

Run and Jump Like a Deer!

Do you find yourself worrying or fretting any of these things – health, finances, relationships, children, aging parents, employment status? Do you find yourself tossing and turning at night, constantly thinking about one or more of those areas of your life? Do you regularly say to yourself, “If only I had, or if only I could (fill in the blank)?” […]

Skin Deep or Whole Body?

In life today plenty of people and activities are competing for our time, and it is often hard to really be fully invested in many (or any) of them. If we looked at the average person’s calendar for any given week we would likely see many or all of the following – work, family time, dinner with friends, church activities, […]

The Truth Will Set You Free

In a world filled with “He said, she said,” it is often hard to find the truth. In disputes between two parties, it is often said that there are two sides to every story and in the middle ground (between the two differing stories) you will likely find the truth. That approach usually just seems to cause more conflict and […]
