A Very Short, Always Needed Prayer

On August 27 we began a new series through Paul's letter to the Colossians, Fullness in Christ. At the head of this letter, Paul offers a familair greeting, which is a kind of short prayer: "To the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae: Grace to you and peace from God our Father" (1:2). This is more than a well-wish, but a prayer for the full experience of the grace and the peace of Christ in the life of this church and in ours....Keep Reading

What Excites Us the Most?

I decided to start a blog for our church family. Then I decided I'd wait for a bit, and start it later. Then I came across a quote for Sunday's sermon and I had no choice but to start a blog. So, here it is. This Sunday we were in Revelation 3:1–7, part of our series, The Seven: Jesus' Words to the Churches in Revelation. Here, Jesus writes to a church that is on its death bed. How does a once-thriving church get there?...Keep Reading
