The Power of Connecting in Community

Authentic community is not the same thing as knowing a lot of people or being in groups that discuss the weather, politics, or sports -- as important as those groups can be. There’s an amazing power when we gather in a community of people where we can love and be loved, know and be known, serve and be served. Real life transformation happens when that kind of community also gathers under the power of the Holy Spirit, worships God, breaks Scripture open and prays for one another......Read More

Pointing us to Jesus

In the book of Acts St. Luke writes about the early church, "And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul and many signs and wonders were being done through the apostles." (Acts 2:42-43)...Read More

Bring a Friend!

In Mark 2 we read of the familiar scene where some friends bring a paralytic to where Jesus is teaching. Because of the crowd they had to remove the roof and lower him down. What is amazing to me is the care and perseverance of the four friends. They bring their friend to hear and experience the love of Jesus....Read More
