The Church is the People The Church is facing an interesting and challenging circumstance today. How do we practice ministry without the gift of presence?

Can the Church Minister Without Presence?

Give Them Jesus

Reserved for a Special Occasion On an average Sunday morning, I put on a dress as I get ready for church. I recently bought it on sale, and the small floral pattern brings a smile to my face. When I glance in the mirror, I stop and think, “This dress looks like an Easter dress.” […]

Every Day Gratitude

Joy

Buying Books for our Home Few spaces in my home give me as much joy as the study my husband Austin and I share. It’s light and bright, with natural sunbeams coming in from two large windows on opposing walls. We have desks that match but face away from each other (a good rule of […]

Don’t Waste Your Quarantine
