Yet Scripture, as usual, paints a different picture of humanity and we are told that we are dusty people. We are just a chronic disease, a tragic accident, or an injury away from being reminded of the reality of our frailty. The b...

Preparing for the Lord's Day When we are in a place of need we tend to grasp for anything in which to trust.

Preparing for the Lord's Day Spiritual Training:Missions We conclude our sermon series on Spiritual Training by looking at missions. So often we think of missions as something that only the spiritually elite are engaged in, or we think of missions as only being a department or ministry of the church...something that only those interested in missions do. Looking at miss...
