Hello, 2021

Posted by Randy Wade on

Well, hello, 2021! What took you so long to get here? I think we will all admit that 2020 was a challenging year. We certainly saw God move in powerful ways, and we should definitely celebrate that. We also witnessed the birth of a global pandemic. We saw friends and family turning their backs...

Christmas 2020

Posted by Jennifer Smith on

Nothing about 2020 has been normal, and for most, Christmas is no exception. Whether you have chosen to gather with family and friends this year, or you have made the hard choice to stay home to mitigate the spread of COVID, things are not the same. When our world is disrupted, it can lead to...

The Gift of Peace

Posted by Andrea Bailey on

There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. — Isaiah 11...

My fascination with names started when I was young, but it became something that spoke to my heart when I began student teaching. Half of my practicum was spent in kindergarten. I absolutely loved it! I remember being taken by one of the students in my class, a 5-year-old named Bill. It was such...

Shaking in the Wind

Posted by Andrew Knight on

2020 has certainly felt like a year of oppression. The oppression of COVID–19. The oppression of the economic climate it created. The oppressive effects of social distancing and isolation. And oppression leads to fear. King Ahaz of Judah faced an entirely different kind of oppression...

Seeking Wisely

Posted by Steve Glenn on

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” — Matthew 7:24 Following the guidance and counsel of our Savior makes us wise. How can we benefit from this truth? The Christmas story gives us...

The Wonderful Counsel of Scripture

Posted by Joe Paris on

The metanarrative (big fancy word for the big story) of the Bible is the message of how a loving God sent his only Son to die for us so that we may have life. The Bible is not a self-help book but rather a relationship book for man to be restored to God. With that said, believers shouldn’t...

Wonderful Counselor

Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Even though I love being a professional counselor, I would dread every session if it weren’t for the fact that I belong to the Wonderful Counselor. Let me explain. My job is to sit, hour upon hour, with people who are hurting. To be honest, much of the time, I feel powerless. It’s...

Value in Contentment

Posted by Jennifer Smith on

I have never been one who needs a lot of Christmas gifts or many things in general. Christmas gift-giving took on a whole new meaning, however, when I started celebrating it with kids. I have a 21-month-old little boy who is at a super-fun stage in life. Everything is new and exciting. He is...

By Faith Alone

Posted by Pat Cooper on

But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us...
