Blue Ocean Photo Summer Instagram Post

Last month, I came across a statement by a missionary in Central Asia that gripped me.

WTTWblog

Weariness is the theme I’m hearing and the vibe I’m feeling from a lot of people these days.

Common Grace and Troubling Realities

BlogBlogBlog

At times, we rejoice in the miraculous and saving grace of God, chiefly made known in and through the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. In those times, we can almost taste heavenly wine on our lips. The sun standing still in the sky seems a small feat for Omnipotence. Eternal glory is as real as any earthly country we might visit. But in other seasons...

Stop It

StopItBlog

An old Comedy Central skit features Bob Newhart as a therapist. He meets a new client who suffers from the fear of being buried alive in a box. Newhart drops some forceful, two-word therapy on her: “Stop it!” As you can imagine, the session ends as poorly as it started. Newhart warns his client, “Stop it! Or I’ll bury you alive in a box!”...
