Pastors’ Note: The Experience of Expressed Grace
Pastors’ Note: The Experience of Expressed Grace

Coming out of seminary, I was warned of the perils that my family was sure to face in church life.  Many of these things we already have painful experience in from other places, so we felt prepared as we moved to Huntsville.  Emily and I both know the reality of our life together. … [more]

Core Commitments: Dependence and Prayer
Core Commitments: Dependence and Prayer

We recognize our deep dependence and need for prayer.
We are a community constantly dependent upon God both individually and corporately. In fact, this is a large part of what it means that we must continually experience grace ourselves. Our relationship with… [more]

All That Is Fair: Nobody Wants to Work for It

Everything happens so fast now, am I right? When I watch TV, commercials are 15 seconds. When I watch a Youtube video, I’m irritated if I can’t skip the ad at the beginning after 5 seconds.  When I sit down at the computer, if the website I’m visiting takes more… [more]

Lord, Teach Us to Pray

Have you ever told someone that you would pray for something and then completely neglected to do so? Me, too. I’m sure there are a variety of reasons this happens to us, including mere forgetfulness. But one of the reasons that… [more]
