Compassion Challenge #2:

Posted by on Jul 28, 2020 in Uncategorized | No Comments

This Sunday we explored the story of four friends who brought their friend to see Jesus. They had to overcome so many obstacles to help their friend. This was no easy task. You can read the story in Mark 2:1-12.  Showing compassion often involves a bit of courage. We might think we only need to […]

Now Is the Time

I’ve been thinking lately about how we live in a culture that talks over one another. I see it play out on all my screens (TV, computer, phone).

There are lines EVERYWHERE. Have you ever stopped and noticed all the lines we bump into, cross over, build, ignore, celebrate, long for, need?
