When Earth Meets Heaven: A Reflection on Honduras

1 Corinthians 7:7…”Live lives with undivided devotion to God” In our busy North American lives, the above declaration from Paul seems elusive and nearly impossible. Yet when we go on mission and all other distractions are silenced, this undivided devotion all of a sudden comes within reach. When it does come within reach, we are able to physically see and sense that…

Ellie Moore ~ High School Student Ministry Honduras Mission 2017 Reflection

Our mission trip to Honduras was one that I never expected. I planned this summer before starting college to be all about working and saving money as I will soon be (somewhat) independent from my parents. My decision to join the Honduras team was only finalized a month before our departure, and I would say it was more of a calling. Two…

Christian Zadig ~ High School Student Ministry Honduras Mission 2017 Reflection

If I learned one thing from this trip, I learned of God’s redeeming power. From the moment we touched down in Tegucigalpa, I could tell there was a sense of joy. The poverty was enormous, but joy was abundant. As soon as we stepped out of the airport, we were met with smiling kids selling us gum and other products to make…

Stedman Dowd ~ High School Student Ministry Honduras Mission 2017 Reflection

The 2017 summer Honduras mission was a truly amazing experience. I feel blessed to have been able to participate on that spiritual journey with such a great group of people. Over the course of the trip, the group started to feel more like a family. Reflecting on the trip since I have been home has made me realize how fortunate I am.…

Hugh Buyck, Sr. ~ High School Student Ministry Honduras Mission 2017

It is a marvel that a mission trip to Honduras beginning with a sense of trepidation and uncertainty becomes a sensational journey of joy, holiness and youthful reflection.  Seven insightful and bright teenagers coupled with la escuela and las casas of loving children brings an inner fullness unmatched by any monetary or tourista encounters. Walls being built with Honduran souls spread contentment…

From Lifeboat to Movement

Some of us remember way back in 2003 when The Episcopal Church (TEC) made the decision to disregard Scripture and consecrate the first openly homosexual bishop of any Christian denomination. Not only did this decision go against Scripture and against the teachings of the worldwide Anglican Communion, it also split the Episcopal church in this country. It also birthed what we now…

A Salad at Waffle House

A Reflection on Diverse Community and Mere Christianity  By Jason Moore Ever ask yourself if the Waffle House serves salad?  In all my years on the road traveling with four other guys in a rock n’ roll band and countless Waffle House stops, this question had, oddly, never come up. These are the types of questions that only arise when we’re living…

ACNA Reflection

This was my first time at a provincial assembly. I am lucky it was an ACNA assembly, which had none of the tensions and discord of past ECUSA assemblies (or so I’ve heard). There was a joyful, Spirit filled exuberance about the place the entire time I was there. We met daily in the morning and the evening in plenary sessions. We…
