The Friends of Jesus

0 Comment

Last Sunday we started a new series at Hillcrest Covenant.  Week One of Moving Toward Jesus discussed who Jesus’ friends were and included what I think is a pertinent word from God for this body.  I am so enjoying serving as the interim teaching pastor as they search for a senior pastor. Who Were the…

Would You Slow Down Already?

I’ve recently been convicted of going way to fast. Not behind the wheel….or rather not only behind the wheel, but most of the time, most of the places, in most situations.  I find myself racing from one idea to the next, one child to the next, one task to the next, like busyness and productivity…

This morning, I preached about thoughts on money from the perspective of a king, a prophet, and a savior. The whole message gets pretty lengthy in written form, but here’s a rough version of the first portion regarding King David. The entire message will be available in video form midweek at HillcrestCov.org. Gleaning thoughts on…

Often – daily – I get asked “so, how are all the little ones?”, so I thought it would be beneficial to go ahead and round up the whole answer in one spot.  Here are updates on the littles and the bigs. Scout will be 2 on February 3rd, and Scout  is happy.  Happy to…

I’ve been watching this idea for weeks and have been resistant to comment on it, but now as it’s getting it’s second wind, I have a few thoughts. A while back, a group set up a Kickstarter page for a phone app that would allow people to swipe right or left through photos of children…

It’s after midnight, which means our house is uncharacteristically quiet.  No one is asking for juice, or help with math, or protesting that their sister put gum in their hairbrush.  The loudest sounds right now are the air moving through the vents and the click of this keyboard. So why am I up? When you’re…

A peaceful weekend. Not so much.

It’s been a crazy 36 hours. Yesterday morning, we witnessed the peaceful passing of political power between two men who shared very little in common.  It was awkward and touching and a little frenzied.  There will forever be debates about how many people attended, and oddly, it doesn’t really matter.  Donald Trump is the President…
