Humility 101

"The world screams "You are enough" and we are desperate to believe it. But being enough is different from being worthy and valuable. We are beautiful people flawed to the core, but deeply worthy of love and of priceless value to our Creator God... every one. Jesus has no favorites.

Cliché-anity

"Much of Christianity is trying to make things fit logically that do not match what you are seeing in front of your face." Well now aint' that the truth.

Joy Is Our Default Setting

The past few days we find ourselves in a familiar cycle of shock, sadness and general confusion. We dig… Continue reading Joy Is Our Default Setting
