Jun 25 2012 Prayer as a Discipline

Riley Endicott

I recently came across a blog post about prayer written by Tim Keller. I found it to be very helpful; in it, he describes the discipline of prayer and the three types of prayer that he does everyday: meditation, petition, and repentance. My initial reaction to it was that it seemed a bit odd, but… More

Jun 21 2012 He Is Supernatural

Chris Schultz

This has been a fascinating study for me as I prepare to teach on Sunday. I have been given the task of looking at the Theophanies in the Old Testament. Prior to this assignment, I barely knew what a Theophany was, let alone base an entire message around it. Theophany comes from the Greek noun… More

Jun 21 2012 Thoughts from the Study - Joshua 5:13-15 - He Is Supernatural

Jerrod Rumley

Jesus is bigger than the confines of our natural world. He is not limited by time, space, scientific rules or anything else, and He shows up throughout the Bible in supernatural ways. He always has a reason, and He desires a response from us. When the pre-incarnate Christ appears to Joshua before… More

Jun 13 2012 Thoughts from the Study - Gen 1:1 / John 1:1-3 - He Is

Christian Warne

For most of us, our understanding of Jesus is too small. While we profess a faith in Jesus Christ, we live a life that does not reflect our belief, and we fail to see Jesus for who He really is.

Oh boy... It's funny how the LORD aligns everything at just the right time. Something has been stirring in me regarding serving the poor. I have literally read 6 books in the past 6 weeks regarding stewardship, giving, and serving the poor. I've been reading through Matthew and eager to get to… More

May 30 2012 Working Not Waiting

Cambria Belleci

I grew up in the “true love waits” generation. I read Lady in Waiting and every other book a proper young lady was supposed to. The theme constantly communicated to me was “wait.” My life was about waiting. Waiting to find the right guy. Waiting to have sex until I was married. Waiting to make plans… More

May 27 2012 The Dreaded "E" Word

Andrew Feil

Evangelism… the dreaded "E" word. Evangelism is a word that is heavy and often guilt-ridden. What picture comes to your mind when you think of 'evangelism'? Do you picture a street preacher? A Sunday School class that you have taken? Do you picture sharing your faith with the person sitting next to… More
