We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in service and generosity. A PERSONAL PRAYER How long, O Lord, before you answer my prayer? I have prayed it. More than once. Over and over again. Sometimes, I just wear out praying it, and I give up on it altogether. But the issue still remains and plagues me, and I am not sure what else to do with it. It seems impossible to ignore it and move on, so I just begin to pray it again. Are you answering my prayer [...]

  We pray. We study the Bible. We make friends. We tell our stories. We give ourselves away in generosity and service. A PERSONAL PRAYER Gracious God, Sometimes, it seems like I am gripped by fear. I watch the terrorist attacks, and I find myself playing out terrible scenarios in my mind. I look at my children and grandchildren, and am afraid for them and their futures. When I am faced with a difficult decision, I worry that I will make the wrong choice. Those demons, fear and anxiety, sometimes rule the day. I know that this is no good way to [...]

A PERSONAL PRAYER O God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry; When I have work, help me to remember the jobless; When I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home at all; When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer, And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency; bestir my compassion, and be concerned enough to help by word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted. Amen. Samuel Pugh I am so grateful, Lord. Really, I am. OK, I know I don’t always [...]

Deep Breaths: Inside-Out Habits with Dr. Tom Pace for November 15, 2015

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 of all times, There are days I hear that voice in my head that I am absolutely sure is not you. It is a voice that comes from a dark place in my heart, a place where there is pain. It is a voice that judges someone else, a voice of self-righteousness, a voice that nurses ill-will and my own self as a victim. I unwillingly rehearse the words in my mind over and over… “He has [...]

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, It is time again to renew my covenant, my promise to you. Every time I come to commitment Sunday, I am convicted that I haven’t done all I said I would last year. I said I was going to quit worrying so much and start trusting you more. I said I was going to enjoy each day more and plan each day less. I said I was going to be liberated from slavery to a [...]

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 am so grateful for those who gave and give themselves away in love to me. When I look back, my parents dragged me to church as a small child and must have planted a seed of faith in me. As a teenager, it was in the church family that I discovered real community, as so many people showed me what love looks like. Friends like Steve Warner and Mark Graham loved me joyously, [...]
