Are you ready for battle?

By | 2017-03-28T14:54:50-05:00 March 24th, 2017|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER God, I watched the news last night and there saw the replay story of a murder/suicide in the home of a nice family. So much pain… It was followed by the story of a couple of young parents neglecting their children. I looked at their photos, and I felt for them… so over their heads. I heard at a meeting yesterday about the overwhelming problems of opioid abuse, and saw the testimony about it. [...]

God, when I am stuck, get me unstuck… Inside-Out Habits – January 29, 2017

By | 2017-03-28T14:55:20-05:00 January 27th, 2017|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER Loving God, Sometimes I get all excited or resolved regarding some goal, and my enthusiasm lasts only a few weeks or days. Then the questions and thoughts beset me: “Why am I doing this anyway?” “Of course I will quit. I always do.” “I can’t change. The old self is just who I am.” “This is just too hard.” “I’ve tried this a thousand times with no success. Why do I think this will [...]

What is next for me? Inside-Out Habits–January 15, 2017

By | 2017-03-28T14:55:23-05:00 January 15th, 2017|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER God, I believe you created me with purpose. You put a passion in my heart. You planted within me the seeds of specific spiritual gifts, all ready to be activated by the Holy Spirit when I respond to your call. You formed me using the experiences of my life. And I have been one of the lucky ones who has a sense of what you want me to do. Nonetheless, I sometimes wonder what [...]

Unstuck: Inside-Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for January 8, 2017

By | 2017-03-28T14:55:25-05:00 January 8th, 2017|All blogs, Inside-Out with Dr. Tom Pace|0 Comments

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER OK, I admit it, God. I am a bit stuck. I have struggled with some challenges for some time, and I want to be different. At least I say I do. You asked the paralyzed man by the pool of Bethzatha, “do you want to be well?” My heart says yes. My actions say no. My life is so dominated by habits – habits of thought and behavior – and so I find myself [...]

Unstuck–by Suzi Pitts

By | 2017-03-28T14:55:26-05:00 January 6th, 2017|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

I had the day off on Monday, and as the wild storm blew in I snuggled my covers over me and watched the trees blow like crazy in the backyard. I knew that I wanted to try out the fancy new exercise bike, and make progress on some reading, but decided to have a second cup of coffee and stay between the sheets instead. It was luxurious time to rest and recharge. Another hour went by and I had still not budged. As much I wanted to get a work-out in and dive into my reading, I stayed [...]

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER God, Thank you for 2016.

At Every Stopping Place

By | 2017-03-28T14:55:29-05:00 January 1st, 2017|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Meredith Mohr The words are written on a colorful piece of paper stuck to my bathroom mirror, where I read them every day. “It is God to whom and with whom we travel, and while He is the end of our journey, He is also at every stopping place.” These are wise words by Elisabeth Elliot—a missionary, a firm but gentle teacher, a true Jesus woman, and after I’ve read and re-read her books, a real friend. With an old year quietly falling in line behind a new year, it’s a habit to drift towards thoughts of [...]

God’s Re-Gifted Presence

By | 2017-03-28T14:55:31-05:00 December 25th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Laurie Noteboom God is with us – Emmanuel. Last night we celebrated the arrival of Emmanuel, the coming of God to earth in the form of an innocent child. God’s re-gifted presence. A baby who grew into a man who would teach, heal and love our world. God’s re-gifted presence. A promise, spoken by this man, that even after his death on a Friday, he would remain Emmanuel. He would be with us always. God’s re-gifted presence. Obedience to a direction, given to the most loyal disciple, that a church be built so God’s word could spread. [...]

We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER Loving God, Yes, it is Christmas or almost Christmas. I am going to see lots of people tomorrow. I will place into their hands the wafer and offer them the fruit of the grape. I will look them in the eyes and remind them that these “gifts” are the very presence of your son Jesus Christ, given out of your great love for them. I will tell them that you showed up for them.
