Acts 15
on April 26th, 2023
I used to be really good at making things more complicated than they need to be. As a kid who was fascinated by how things worked, tightening a single bolt on my bike could turn into an afternoon taking the whole thing apart simply because I couldn’t resist the path that my curiosity led me down. As a teenager I hated cleaning my room, but somewhere along the line I realized that the chore was mor...  Read More
Acts 14
on April 19th, 2023
When I first moved to Colorado, I agreed to spend a week up at a summer camp in the Rocky Mountains to speak for their worships and spend time with the campers and staff.

In fact, it was actually known by many other names; Holy Friday, Great Friday, Great and Holy Friday, and Black Friday. Obviously, landing on the nomenclature of Good Friday has taken a while.But we do know why it was good. It led to the...  Read More
