Posted by Bo Grimes on

God has a sense of humor. We've all heard that—and probably said it—but usually it's in the context of something like: “When we make plans, God laughs.” Or we tell a story about how a God moment came out of left field, catching us completely off-guard, and conclude it...

"The Lord had said to Abram, 'Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you."  Genesis 12:1 Although I had traveled out of the country before, the very idea of living and working in another country was humbling and very spiritual for me. I...

Being and Doing

Posted by Thomas Winterstein on

Our world never stops. As we walk through our lives, we often amiably subscribe to the philosophy of “we work hard, we play hard.” But what does that really mean? Do we sacrifice our well-being for the sake of our society’s call for activity and action? If we are honest, the...

The week-long summer enrichment program at the Village of Hope in Haiti is over, and I am back home surrounded by my “stuff.”  While I was gone, my daughter and sister-in-law snuck in and spent days in my house, rooting out and disposing of a bunch of the “stuff&rdquo...

Reclaiming Fervor

Posted by Stacey Crosson on

Peter and John answered and said unto them, "For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard."  Acts 4:19-20 Can you imagine having such fervor?  So much fervor you can't stop yourself from talking endlessly about whatever has stirred within your heart and changed...
