In my last couple of posts I have written about this idea of true freedom and how that comes in our relationship with Jesus Christ. Then not only how it comes but then how it is expressed!! Interestingly, yesterday I heard two different pastors talk about making the folks they were speaking to “uncomfortable”. Not … Continue reading Comfort or Uncomfortable?
Being it is Labor Day… I am going to honor it for the holiday it is … that is to honor the working force, and really the idea of work (which doesn’t have to be a bad word… and in fact is part of what God made us to do!!). So to honor this day … Continue reading Because of what He has already done!!

We were on our way back from that yesterday. I believe a really good reason to be a day late here, so hope … Continue reading Setting the Table!!
