Just a Speck

Written by Sarah Comer

In college, I took my first trip to a Judgment House.

Just the sound of it kind of makes me want to throat-punch someone. However, I had never been, and so bored on a weekend, I headed to nearby town for a visit to the Judgment House.

I don’t do haunted houses, so I was a little on edge about what to expect. It was around Halloween, but it was at a church so I figured even if I [...]

Let Them Pray

Written by Erik Gernand

The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. – James 5:16b 

What do you do when something great is happening in your life? 

How do you respond when life gets hard? 

For most of us, whether things are going well, or not, we are predictable in our responses. We develop patterns over time that help us respond to and navigate, all sorts of life circumstances.

Gainly Gatherings

Written by Ashley Hoffner

It’s been quite a ride for myself and my church here in Argentina over the past several weeks, 4-6 weeks really. But it has never been more busy, which to me is a good thing.

Slow to Speak

Written by Erik Gernand

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry… – James 1:19

Man, oh man.

“I have a friend” who struggles with these things mightily. I bet you have one of “these friends” too – I mean, hypothetically, of course.

Seriously though, how many times have you entered a challenging conversation, maybe with your boss, your spouse, a child, a neighbor or a friend, and your [...]
