Training that will Save the World


Ashes in the Streets

By: Rev. Becky Brown

With Ash Wednesday right around the corner, I’ve been secretly getting excited for one of my favorite seasons in the church year. I love Ash Wednesday and I love Lent. There, I said it! I’m a complete liturgical geek. I have loved Ash Wednesday since I went to my first service before school when I was 16. It’s mysterious, powerfully holy, and strangely evangelistic (if you wear your ashes on your forehead all day at your high school.)

Stillness and Silence

Prone to wander.  Lord, I feel it.

By: Scott Taylor

I am most certainly the youngest son.

 It’s true.  I was the surprise third son sent to my mother and father.  I was the surprise that motivated my father to take steps to ensure that I would remain the youngest son.


"A Resolution Worth Keeping" 

By: Ashley Boaeuf


We are at the cusp of a brand new year, 2018. Its a time of reflection on the events of 2017, and a time of celebration of a fresh new start in a brand new year. As we each look back at everything we lived through this year, we are full of hope and gratitude. Some may be hoping for a far better year ahead. We often take the time in the new year to make promises of self-improvements and create resolutions that we hope will last through the end of January. Even possibly to the first fruits of spring. This time is good for the soul and refreshing for the spirit.

It only gets better…

By: Scott Taylor

After all, that’s what the pastor told me.  He said it plain as day.  “Scott, it only gets better.” 

 

I’m not sure I believe him.

 

After all, my daughter was sitting in my lap gazing at our little Christmas tree with all the wonder that an 18 month-old soul can inspire.  How can it get better than this?  Next year, will she have time for such wonder?  Will I?
