Dynamic Downtown Worship in the Anglican Tradition

When Guilt is Good

Is guilt always bad?  As we enter week two of Nehemiah, the broken walls around Jerusalem had been repaired, but then came the work of rebuilding the hearts of the Jews.  This rebuilding of the souls happened when the reading of Scripture was taught and applied for their lives. The result? The people wept. Why? They realized how far they were from…

How to Find True Rest

We live in such an exhausting world, don’t we?  Some have even called our phones “Massive weapons of mass distraction.”  News is coming at us from all angles and breaking news seems to come at us every 30 seconds!  Where do we find true rest for our souls? Zechariah and Matthew give us a recipe…

Be Ready

His will always prevails even…

Peace When In Pieces

Did you know there is a natural peace and a supernatural peace?  A natural peace often comes when things are going really well in our lives and our anxiety is low.  Supernatural peace is a gift of the Holy Spirit through the power of Jesus Christ and manifests itself in our life no matter the…

The Object of My Affections

“Idolatry isn’t just one of many sins, it’s the one great sin that all others come from.”  This thought from the Rev. Kyle Idleman reminds us that idolatry didn’t stop in the Old Testament with the Kings and Israelites!  Idolatry is alive and well today and can be defined as “anything or anyone who has…
