Sunday to Monday | Loyalties

We gathered for worship just like we always do on Sundays at 10:00 am and God was there in the stream. Thank you God! We considered what does it mean to give to God what is God’s. If everything is God, including us, what does it mean to live loyal to God? If you missed…

Sing a New Song

When’s the last time you sang a song to God? Thanked God for who God is? Sometimes we get so caught up in feeling like God is not doing what we want God to do.   But God is worthy of our praise and thanks through all things, even when we’re not getting our way,…

Would YOU Answer?

The last couple of weeks, I have been making phone calls for work. There are a variety of reasons to let a call go to voicemail and I would have to say that is what happened to most of the calls I made. There were of course those that answered. Most were super polite, friendly,…

The Law of Moses

But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees with his reply, they met together to question him again. One of them, an expert in religious law, tried to trap him with this question: “Teacher, which is the most important commandment in the law of Moses?” Jesus replied, “‘You must love the LORD…

He’s At Work

Dear Citizens of God’s Kingdom, “Benjamin Franklin, not a particularly religious person himself, proposed to the Constitutional Convention, that it open all of it’s sessions with prayer. Like most of Franklin’s motions, this was soundly defeated, not because the delegates necessarily had anything against God, but as they patiently explained to him, they had no…

The Narrow Gate

Matthew 7:13–14 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. Many times in the bible…

Sunday to Monday | The Banquet

It was a beautiful morning to gather for worship via the stream. Pastor DJ lifted up Matthew 22:1-4, Philippians 4:4-9, Genesis 2:16 and Revelation 22:17. We are all invited to the banquet table of God where the scriptures fill us with good news. If you missed being with us watch here. Check out photos here,…

First

Professional volleyball player Gabby Reece on the power of going first: “I always say that I’ll go first… That means if I’m checking out at the store, I’ll say hello first. If I’m coming across somebody and make eye contact, I’ll smile first. [I wish] people would experiment with that in their life a little bit. Be…

Spirit Time

We have spent most of the past few days in the mountains – a welcome change of scene after many months in relative isolation at home.  After a nice lunch in Frisco, we stopped for a few minutes at the trailhead on the west end of town before getting back on I-70.  Despite being up in that…

Normal Never Was

I so appreciated a quote shared during a recent podcast I listen to.  I share it with you, and I offer it as reflection and hope for our future, with God in our midst. “We will not go back to normal. Normal never was. Our pre-corona existence was not normal other than we normalized greed, inequity,…
