Worship Night…Is All Music?

Once a year we take a night to free ourselves of distraction and spend time with God. What is it and why do we do this? For some, hearing that music can act as “worship” might be confusing, and for others, it may be a habit that isn’t given much thought. So, why is it that we sing on Sundays? Why is music part of what we do? For John, who has served as a vocalist [...]

I wasn’t sure how I felt about going [...]

Looking Outward

Resolutions are one of those things people seem to love or hate. Love is a strong word, but as a frequent journaler, I get pretty into them. I’m not talking about your ordinary “go to the gym” resolutions, though — I’ve never been able to follow through on those. I have what I call annual “do something” goals.

Remember RadioShack? Yeah, I know. It’s hard to believe they used to be one of the premier retailers of the ’90s. They had a slogan that went, “You’ve got questions?

This Is Why I Wanted You Here

Missions trips are something that are hard to put into words. It’s difficult to articulate just how impactful and emotional a trip can be. I’ll give it my best shot!
