Join us this month for our new series.  Here is a snapshot:This Is The Time

If you’re a parent and you have kids with screens, then you probably would like to know what apps they’re downloading. . .or better yet. . .you probably would like to help them learn to become screen-wise and avoid dangerous apps.

And there lies the question. How are we supposed to know what’s dangerous, and then, in turn pass on that knowledge to them?

I've been thinking a lot lately about retirement. Friday I got to use my Medicare card for the first time!  That fat check from Uncle Sam will appear in my checking account in about 14 months!  That time is drawing near.

That very first Easter Sunday, the disciples were all huddled in a house together in fear, with lots of questions, wondering what is going to happen. That first Easter Sunday was celebrated in a house, not in a church building. Does this sound familiar?

We find ourselves in a weird position for missions during this time. The opportunity around us and also around the world is great, but trying to navigate being on mission while being couped up at home can be tricky. I have a few thoughts, but I know there are many people out there with more creative ideas.Much of what we do, participate in, work, and other parts of our lives have come to a halt the mission of spreading the good news of Jesus Christ has not.
