Drinking Jesus

“Drinking Jesus”. OK, I know that sounds weird, but I am not the first to say it. Jesus actually said it first, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living...

Forgiveness Is Everything!

Last Sunday, we launched our Acts of the Apostles series. Well, I tried to, anyway. With high hopes of setting a tidy pace of one chapter per service, I quickly found that that wasn’t going to happen!  Yet, in a strangely comforting way, it seemed appropriate...

After Resurrection

I want to thank all who prayed and participated in the “Final Approach”, our 3 Act Play during Passion Week. It was amazing! There was laughter, wonder, tears, and many Holy Spirit Jesus encounters! If you missed any of the play or would like to see it again or share...

God Speaks Jesus: The Sound of His Voice

The most fascinating thing to me about our faith in Jesus is that God speaks. Right now, His very voice is being heard by all creation and is resounding throughout the whole earth. Creation, alive and in constant movement, is responding to His voice, following after...
