Picnics and Panorama

Delighting in the Trinity, a must read for all, gave us a large-scale view of our Triune God. “For what makes Christianity absolutely distinct is the identity of our God...the Trinity is the governing center of all Christian belief,” says Reeves. He goes on to compare and contrast our Triune God with the one person gods.

Reflections on Citizenship and Celebration

However, that very truth puts professing Christians in a quite vulnerable place. It is all too easy to weave US history together with our Christian faith in such a way that almost any threat (real or perceived) to our personal liberty can feel like an attack on our faith! And any moral legislation we disagree with can generate rather significant confusion regarding whether we should view the issue in question more as a citizen of the US or as a citizen of heaven!

Reflections on Global Outreach Month

June was a refreshing, exhilarating month at Grace Church! Global Outreach (GO) Month was so clearly assembled by the Lord that not even our GO Team would express it differently! Now, make no mistake, the attention the Team gave to planning was as enhancing as it was appreciated. But the actual assembling of the participants was worked out by our Heavenly Father without our involvement! Let me explain.

Awana Reflections

I love watching them sing and play because they are so free, so bold, and so enthusiastic.  They live out what they feel with very few filters.  Granted, filters are learned and important in life, but how great to see them singing God’s praises at the top of their lungs, uninhibited by fear or self consciousness!  Again, conviction.  Anyone else want to be a Cubbie?

Reflections on the Bethlehem Conference: Part 2, Plenary Sessions

Gospel Ambition was the conference theme, subtitled Advancing Gospel Glory Deep and Wide. Piper rightly observed that we can’t advance gospel glory without first being clear on what the gospel is. And we can’t be clear on what the gospel is without first being reminded of the reason for which God created the world.

March Madness @ GCD

This league has truly been a blessing to me, and God has encouraged me to know it's blessed many involved as well. So, as exciting as Tuesday & Thursday's games will be/should be, come take advantage of the opportunity we have as a body to love on our community! They are coming into our building! Let the warmth and welcome and light feel strange, yet captivating! Let your little light shine ("fan into flame" some may say...), and pray that God would continue to do His good work right here in our midst.
