  Talking about money and finances as we approach the Christmas season can be awkward. No one really wants to have that conversation. Culture tells us that material things are what this season is really about.  The world tells us that the money in my checking...

Discipleship in the Summer

Discipleship in the Summer

  Summertime is finally here—assuming we survive all the rain—it will only get warmer, the grass will get longer, and basically we are free. Sure, the adults work, but there is no school schedule holding us back! With all of our “freedom” what does discipleship...

Evidence for the Resurrection

Evidence for the Resurrection

  The words of Paul are heart-stopping: “And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins…And if our hope in Christ is only for this life we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world.”(1 Cor. 15:17-19)Here...
