Right a Wrong

At times, life can seem full of wrongs. People say the wrong thing or act the wrong way. Sometimes we put our trust in the wrong person or end up supporting the wrong position.  Good friends sometimes get the wrong idea or pick the wrong side. Employers often discover that they chose the wrong candidate for a job or sent the wrong message to their customers. Even in the most basic areas of life, we sometimes make the wrong choice or take the wrong path. But in the midst of things gone......

More Than a Name

When did Jesus become more than a name to you? When we first learn about Jesus, we read stories, we sing songs, we listen to sermons (maybe podcasts, too, nowadays), and we may act out skits. Learning about Jesus, knowing his parables and stories is one thing.  But actually grasping the significance of the man behind the stories is another thing. We might know the name, but being awakened to the life, death and resurrection of the person is a much deeper knowing. Through the Easter story, Jesus fully becomes Christ.  Because of Easter,......

We've Only Just Begun

Did you know that Easter is not just one day out of the year? On the contrary, the season of Easter (known as Eastertide) celebrated in the Christian calendar is 50 days long!  Eastertide begins on Easter Sunday.

During the season of Easter, we continue to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus and think about new ways we can live our lives that......

It's Good To Be Home!

God weaves life together in unexpected ways to create something beautiful. About five years ago, we met a young man who was beginning an internship with our non-profit ministry in Charlotte.  Upon meeting him for the first time, Joanie asked, “Where are you from?” “Dunn,” he responded. “Where?” “Dunn, North Carolina.” “Where’s that?” While Jason knew the answer, Joanie learned about Dunn for the first time.  Neither of us, at that time, could have imagined that we would worship in a church in Dunn, NC, much less be called there as co-pastors. Yet......
