Talking about purpose…

Allow me to ramble about the topic of purpose. God made us with a purpose in this life and in the life to come. Everyone wants to be needed and feel like they are contributing in their unique way to our world. We have all asked, “Lord, why am I here? Or, what do you… Continue reading Talking about purpose…

Hearing God’s voice

 John 9 records the story of a man born blind and his miracle healing.

What are praise and worship?

“Lord, your name is so great and powerful! People everywhere see your splendor. Your glorious majesty streams from the heavens, filling the earth with the fame of your name!

I love all the effort and practice you put into worship. But there is something I want you to hear: I don’t need all that.… Continue reading God’s heart for the church service
