Sabbatical and the finish line

As you would expect, now that I’m back from Sabbatical I’ve been getting asked “How was it?” I’m guessing that most of you that have asked are hoping for more than just a superficial answer. Since it’s pretty impossible to distill the past months into a hallway conversation sound-byte I thought it would be helpful to write a short blog to everyone.  Before I do, however, I need to say thank you for the time that I’ve had off.  Several…

Thoughts on the end of the World

2020 just doesn’t seem to let up.  I don’t need to remind you of the details of the last six months, we are all living them!  One young mom recently mentioned as she saw the redness of the smoke-filled sky one morning, “It was so eerie, I just started praying for the salvation of my children.”  Others, half in jest, have commented about it being a sign of the end of the world—and in some ways it can feel that…

2 Corinthians 13:1-10 Paul's closing remarks

To download a printable copy of these questions, please click here.  Are there any truths that you saw, from either your own study or from the teaching video, that really stood out to you?  For those of you that are feeling weak and incapable and weary, let those things drive you to Jesus.  Hear his promise that his grace is sufficient for you, right now, today (2 Corinthians 12:9).    What does it look like in your life to respond to that promise?    Paul had two intentions…

Restoring a "New Normal"

What have we learned? I think it would be nearly impossible for us to have our lives so dramatically disrupted and not learn some things about this world, ourselves, and what God calls us to as his people.  We’ve learned about epidemiology (even if you don’t know what that word means, trust me, you’ve learned something about it).  We’ve learned about how difficult some of the decisions our governing leaders have made and how important it is to be praying…
