A Keeper, by H. Murray Hohns

A devotional exhortation for leaders from Pastor Mur. I was just about out the door the other day when I heard my wife ask, ‘Could you come in here and help me for a minute?’ I said, ‘Sure,’ and made a U-turn. I walked into the bedroom to find the bed in total disarray and […]

When a Cloud Isn’t a Crowd, by Daniel Brown

Pastor Daniel Brown talks about being led by God in contrast to the persistent nagging to follow the crowd. Where God leads isn’t the same for everyone.

The Not-So-Tidy Christmas Story, by Scott Lencke

Praying For the Sick

Praying For the Sick

I’m not sure why this topic makes me nervous, but it does. Maybe it sounds a little too man-centered. Maybe it doesn’t sound spiritual.
