    This is Church

    The world is on fire. Social media is on fire. And the church SEEMS to be on fire. But glory to God who walks with us in the fire that we might not burn. We want to be all fighting for some sort of justice. Fighting for those who are oppressed, whether it be because of […]

  • Leadership Principles: Part I

    Leadership Principles: Part I

    I had an interview with Amazon not too long ago (for those out there who are curious, yes I got an offer and no this specific offer did not end up working out).

    This is a guest post from our good friend, Sandra Mathoslah, who was recently married this year.

    Why Are Most Of Your Friends Girls?

    A question I was persistently asked, particularly in my teens, was why the majority of my friends were female.

    Spoken Word | We Belong To Each Other

    We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love.

    The Blur Between Today and Yesterday

    FRODO: I can’t do this Sam. SAM: I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the […]

    There is a tale of the power of sin and darkness, it is a tale of endless struggle, of victory and of the greatest friendship. Gandalf advises the hobbit Frodo, “I don’t think you need go alone. Not if you know of anyone you can trust, and who would be willing to go by your […]
