In Actuality

I’m posting over at Deeper Church today. I so want my life to resemble that of an early church member. Devoted to teaching, fellowship and prayer. Recognizing and doing everything in my power to meet the needs of all. Posturing humility, sincerity and thanksgiving. Praising God and basking in His favor. But I can’t help but […]

Church is Not A Building

Hey guys, I am posting over on Deeper Church today. A few weeks ago, I attended the last ever church service in Cross Point’s Charlotte Avenue campus.

The writers that will be contributing monthly are friends, old and new, who love wrestling, engaging, and exploring stories to find common truths. I hope you will take this opportunity to […]

Not the constant back-and-forth muttering, wrestling, surrendering to the Creator of the Universe type of prayer. But the grocery listing of all the things in this world that are broken and […]

Learning The Unforced Rhythms of Grace

While I, like everyone else, am sick of the ‘Christian Chicken Debacle of 2012′. I want to make sure that these grace-filled voices are heard above the thoughtless bickering. So if you haven’t read these posts/articles, please take a few minutes to dig in and prayerfully consider what the unforced rhythms of grace might look […]
