Posted by Doug Seemann on

The other day, I was struck by a statement from a friend: “It is important to stick to our values.” The implication was that values are a constant, unchanging set of rules, and that everyone should know them. But in my experience, everyone has different values. So I decided to look...

Election Angst

Posted by Tom Lambiase on

Was “your” candidate victorious? Chances are about 50/50 the answer is yes/no. Did you pray, vote, pray (in that order), or did you leave things totally to chance? As a Christian, I believe that the answer to all life’s questions can be found in the Bible, God’s Living...

Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story?

Posted by Jennifer Gross on

Recently on this blog, I confessed my love for all things Hamilton. And a month later, I’m still listening to the cast recording of the Broadway musical Hamilton. I’ve moved on from listening to it exclusively—after all, Crowder just released a new album—but I still find...

Holy Spirit

Posted by Erin Oakley on

"Every believer has received a gift that manifests the Spirit's  power and presence. That gift is given for the whole of the community."   1 Corinthians 12:7 In the embrace of my pen with the paper, I become a cloud. My thoughts are like that of the wind, revealing themselves...

Posted by Lori Grosz on

It’s human nature to want to live life to the fullest.  But what does it mean “to live”?  And how do we measure living overall?  Having family, friends, nice home?  Success at school or work, financial security, good health, exciting adventures?  But...

Best Seat in the House

Posted by Jennifer Gross on

One of the unexpected blessings of singing in the choir is getting to see the whole congregation. The Prince of Peace choir loft is to the side of the sanctuary and slightly elevated (think wide, shallow steps, with each step deep enough for a chair). From my perch in the second row, alto...

  I recently had a conversation with a friend who moved to California for her husband’s career.  A few months ago, her husband unexpectedly resigned his job and is currently receiving unemployment as he looks for a new job.  As my friend described the upheaval in her life...

Two Family Traditions

Posted by Mark Boriack on

Family traditions are a big contributor to a person’s identity. I do not come from a family with lots of traditions, and neither does my wife, Nancy. We have a couple of very good ones, however, and we really value them. They tell you a lot about us. The number one big tradition in...

How Much Is Enough?

Posted by Tom Lambiase on

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...

What’s Your Theme Song?

Posted by Jennifer Gross on

How precious to me are your thoughts, God!  How vast is the sum of them!... Psalm 139:17 A few months ago, I downloaded the cast recording of the popular Broadway musical Hamilton. Now I’m a wee bit obsessed with it. On the surface, the concept sounds ridiculous: a musical about a...
