The Importance of Weakness (pt. 1)

I’ve recently finished reading the book of 2 Corinthians … twice. I’ve learned over the years that reading something once is good, but you get more out of it the second time through. In the last 3 chapters of the book a concept is brought up 7 times. It’s the concept we don’t really like […]

Preaching Dad’s Funeral

This past Saturday, I was tasked with preaching a funeral. Not my first, third actually. The first was for friends whose infant died suddenly. The second was for the grandfather of a good friend.

Web Slinging 9.22.14

Here is what I’ve been reading from around the web this past week: Desiring God had a post about the importance of waiting. It reads, ” “Later” is God turning up the emotional volume knob to reveal what’s in the heart.” In a culture that hates to wait … for anything … this is wise counsel. […]
