  • Something Different

    Elijah in the Time of COVID

    September 6th, 2020

    Elijah’s ministry is a message of repentance. It is a call to God’s people to turn back to God, to submit to God’s plan to turn their hearts back again to Him. The repentance Elijah preaches is not simply a decision of the mind, it is an authentic turning of one’s heart. When our hearts are turned, we are ready to embrace God.

    How Golden is the Golden Rule?

    February 24th, 2019

    Where Is God When It Hurts

    Being Made In Human Likeness

    April 17th, 2016

    We're not meant to be "fixers" (which is how our society works), we're meant to be in relationship. And relationship means things like empathy, validation, listening - simply being WITH people. Which is hardest when that involves pain. And it's hardest when we can't fix it.
