Rick’s Reflections- 7/15/2018

As we continue to look over the shoulder of Nehemiah, we learn spiritual lessons for rebuilding the broken places in our lives. Everyday we are reminded of just how much brokenness there is in our world.  We all deal with our own and that of others.  It is vital that we likewise be reminded that … [Read more…]

Someone once said there are two kinds of people in the world; those whose lives have fallen apart and those whose lives will fall apart.  I am not sure the language is 100% accurate but I think we can all attest to some level of brokenness in our lives.  It has been rewarding to think … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 7/1/2018

We’ve spent the last few weeks speaking on a topic that everyone needs at some point in their life: what to do with our brokenness. We’ve all experienced times of pain, heartache, and confusion where we’re not sure where to go. We’ve seen that this is okay, even an important part of life. It’s through … [Read more…]

One of the most thought provoking hymns ever written is Isaac Watts’ When I Survey the Wondrous Cross. He wrote over 600 hymns but it seems that he wrote this text as if he were standing at the foot of Christ’s cross, together with the disciple John, the faithful women, Jesus’ mother, the Roman soldiers … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 6/17/2018

Happy Father’s Day! I cannot stress enough how important it is that we take time to acknowledge men and the essential role they play in the family. A secular society would have us believe otherwise, portraying the common father as lazy and unintelligent. It is remarkable to me that in only a few decades society’s … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 6/10/2018

We are in a series of messages challenging us to consider the possibility that even in brokenness there can be real beauty. We have reflected on the fact all of us are broken people in one way or another. We have also been reassured our Heavenly Father loves us despite our brokenness and can bring … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 6/3/2018

We all know what it feels like to want to disappear and go somewhere else. One slip of the tongue or one quick mistake is enough to publicly embarrass us. Over the past decade, there has been a rise in television shows that feature “awkward comedy”, a situation that can only be humorous because it … [Read more…]

Nathan’s Notes- 5/27/2018

Our oldest son, Kai, has recently entered what experts call the “why” stage. The good news is that he is curious about his world and is constantly striving to learn new things. The bad news is that it comes with one word repeated over and over and over and over and over again: “why”. “Why … [Read more…]

Rick’s Reflections- 5/13/2018

A poem by Luke Easter explains the difference between a strong woman and a woman of strength.   A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape, but a woman of strength kneels in prayer to keep her soul in shape. A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything, but a woman … [Read more…]
