Christ-like Unity

I want to acknowledge that regardless of what I write, someone will be offended. Honestly, regardless of any topic I voice my thoughts about, someone will disagree, and that is okay. But, I have to be obedient to God in writing when He puts something on my heart.

What was the last “community” moment you remember three months ago?

Fresh Start Bible Review

How often have you gotten a fresh start with anything? Maybe it was a fresh start with a new move to a city, a new job, or even a newfound appreciation of life. Sometimes in order for us to have that “fresh start,” we need to surrender what may be on our hearts. Continue reading

The Gift of You

The Story Behind our Gift
