Something in the Water

Have you ever gotten so amazingly filthy that you began to think that nothing could remove all that grime off of you? We view sin the same way. We feel we can’t possibly remove the stain that sin has placed on our lives. And guess what? We’re right. But there is Someone Who makes lives…

Messy – the Inner work of forgiving

When you are sick, do you ignore it? Some people do, because they have important things on their agenda and feel they need to keep going. But more than likely, if you don’t attend to what ails you, you’ll end up getting sicker and sicker with each passing day. That’s what happens when we don’t…

Messy- The Messy work of reconciling

Forgiveness is a difficult road to take, but it’s essential for us to pursue that direction. No matter how much we want it, things are never the same afterwards. Wouldn’t it be great if, with just the push of a button, life could return to the way it was before all that mess happened? Maybe.…

Messy – Freedom in Forgiving

The amount of hours you work may keep you from spending time with your family, or even time to yourself. It’s hard to find joy…

Fixer Upper – Church

Have you ever jolted out of bed, remembering something you needed to do the day before and completely forgot, something that needed to be done before you went to bed? In some ways, that’s where we are with our church. It feels good just to be comfortable, to sit back and let the world slip…

Fixer Upper – Community

The people of Israel found themselves living in a foreign land, surrounded by strange customs and even stranger people. But in the midst of their exile, God gave them some curious instructions- instruction that surely raised some eyebrows from God’s people as they tried to live faithfully in a distant land. What does God ask…

Fixer Upper – Home

There’s always that one family member that makes life difficult. And with that comes our sense of responsibility to somehow solve the problem. We either ignore that person and their activities, or we pour every ounce of ourselves into somehow turning that person around. Either way, we end up creating a more unhealthy situation than…
