Advent Peace

The celebration of Advent is not just about the coming of Jesus 2000 years ago.  The celebration of Advent also looks forward to the day when Jesus will come again. Revelation 21 begins: “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth...

Advent Joy

There’s nothing like the sight of a little one on Christmas morning.  There’s nothing like that look of wonder and excitement, or the sheer volume of their excitement (that makes you really need a second cup of coffee), or that amazement that Santa has come, and all...

Bringing Us Back

Last night, I visited our PD officer in the hospital recovering from surgery.  His accident could have claimed his life, but God is so good and spared him for unknown purposes that we can only be excited about!  I can't wait to see how God will use his life for His...

Advent Love

The second candle of Advent is the Love candle.  Admittedly, the love candle might seem a bit dim right now. We are still reeling from the evil that hit too close to home last week, and this morning we are heartbroken for 14 families who will wake up to a world...

In the Midst of Tragedy

It is easy to lose hope in the midst of tragedy.  Our city/region has taken a one-two punch with our officer in the collision Monday in surgery now and with the horror yesterday in San Bernardino.  But I will not give up.  Since God graciously allows us the gift of...

Advent Hope

It’s no secret that the world we live in is a dark place. Terrorism. Anger. Hatred. Brokenness. Pain. In Psalm 139, the Psalmist reflects: “I could say, “The darkness will hide me. Let the light around me turn into night.” 12 But even the darkness is not dark to you....

Worship Defined: Part 2 (Heaven on Earth)

Ok, so last time, we took a rather scholastic look at worship. This time, I’d like to focus on what all that Greek and Hebrew stuff means for us. Clearly, based on what we saw last time, praise and worship has nothing to do with music and everything to do with us. A...

Peeling Back the Layers on Worship

God has a funny way of changing our direction and passions, midstride.  At the end of my second year of college (where I was majoring in indecision while dabbling in music), I felt God asking me why I was still fighting Him.  Clearly He had gifted me with musical...
