    This is a very different week in the life of our church. Goodbyes are hard. God’s thoughts and ways are not mine. I struggle with that sometimes, and I might even be writing this blog post as a reminder mainly to myself that I trust in the God whose thoughts and ways are higher than mine. If you also feel some combination of angry, sad, and confused, as I do... that's OK. We’re figuring this out together with God’s help.

    This past Sunday, Drew Humphrey announced his resignation as one of the pastors of our church. That was heavy news to receive, and you are probably still digesting that information. I have been greatly encouraged by your loving and caring response to the Humphreys in this time of transition for them.

  • “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” In a world full of countless created wonders, we humans are able to lay claim to the most distinguished and unique title in the whole universe, the title of Image Bearer.

    I’m in the midst of a biography on Ernest Shackleton and his expedition in the Endurance. He set out in 1914 to be the first to navigate to the South Pole. It has been a fascinating read so far. Several aspects of his journey and leadership have grabbed my attention. Not only is the story remarkable but I’ve found some significant spiritual parallels along the way. I’d like to share one of those with you.
