Student Led - Family

Our Students put this together in one afternoon on our student leadership retreat.  They put together a worship service that centered on the idea of "family".  They led the service on the final morning of the retreat.

I'm kind of proud.

Other students prepared and gave the talk out of Romans 12, some led worship, some did tech and others prayed.  It's amazing what students can and will accomplish when given the opportunity.

2 Thoughtful Articles About Christians and Same Sex Marriage

I’m in many conversations right now about gay marriage.

As one who is passionate about the next generation, I seek to be attentive to issues that involve marriage and family.  Here are a couple of articles that may help frame discussion if people are asking you about it.

May we be those who thoughtfully consider how the gospel interacts and transforms the world around us.  It’s a great time for truth, grace and balance.

Quote of the day - Gospel - Humility

Gospel-humility is not needing to think about myself. Not needing to connect things with myself. It is an end to thoughts such as, ‘I’m in this room with these people, does that make me look good? Do I want to be here?’ True gospel-humility means I stop connecting every experience, every conversation, with myself. In fact, I stop thinking about myself. The freedom of self-forgetfulness. The blessed rest that only self-forgetfulness brings.
