The Power of Accountability

Last year around this time, I decided I needed to make a better commitment to reading the Bible every day. I would read through a plan in the Bible app, but would often take 14 days (or more!) to get through a 7-day plan because I wasn’t consistent. Short plans weren’t enough to build a […]

Lessons in Praying for Others

Throughout this pandemic, prayer has become a greater priority for many. Perhaps, like me, while COVID has disrupted your social life, it hasn’t debilitated you.

Christmas This Year…

Okay, I’m not going to start singing the TobyMac song of the same name… but this is an appropriate title for this BLOG. This year unlike any other in my memory and for many others, it has been a very strange and unusual year. The whole thing of Covid-19 and lockdowns, numbers go down, they […]

We’ve read, but do we know?
