The Money Seduction and Gospel Wealth

November 23, 2020 | Jake Each

In the midst of such political turmoil and a global pandemic, why talk about money? At the mention of this topic, I sense defenses going up, even my own. The thought of generosity is a direct challenge to my greed. When it comes to taking in what the Bible has to tell us about money, we can often seem like the young kid turning his head to avoid the cough medicine he needs. But if we avoid the medicine of generosity, there is a sickness far worse that will overtake us.

The Christian and Unity

July 27, 2020 | Jake Each

Tensions are high, divisions are sharp. Black, white, republican, democrat. We can seem hopelessly lost in problems that seem too big and complex for any real change. But, a lot of people doing the little things make a big difference. I believe the power of simple godliness lived out in the everyday lives of Christians can have a profound impact on a community. As one of your pastors, I want to share five simple, underwhelming personal practices for fostering unity that, if embraced by the people of Veritas, would send forth cultural ripples.

Reflections on Race and Christianity: Part four

February 24, 2020 | Jake Each

There’s no doubt that we live in a very divided world where our tendency is to identify with other things before we identify with Christ, but what we have to understand is that before we are republican or democrat, before we are white or black, before we are male or female, we are Christians.

Reflections on Race and Christianity: Part One

February 3, 2020 | Jake Each

Race can certainly be a hot and controversial topic. To some it is a topic that can’t be escaped because of the color of their skin. To others it feels like walking through a minefield, not knowing where to step or what to say in the fear of miss stepping, so it becomes a topic we avoid. But there is definitely a conversation going on about race, and as Christians we are not to be quiet while that conversation is happening, rather we are to be biblical.

Sound of Hallelujahs

March 11, 2019 | Marcy Each

Melissa is beautiful. And brilliant. Strong and opinionated. She also happens to be black. And I am also strong and opinionated. And I happen to be white. When we first had a conversation at the door to our kids’ Sunday school class, I told her I didn’t think we could be friends because after just a short while of knowing her, I concluded my strong opinions and frank statements would surely offend her. She laughed and agreed that she would most likely be offended by me, and yet Melissa has become one of my closest friends.

In fact today we don’t even have to have it to spend it, we can charge it. So loosen up, it’s the holidays! We can talk about money after the new year. That’s when we’ll set a budget and get our finances under control. Right? Wrong!
