Don't lose focus. We have a mission. The world is watching.
Covid-19. It’s a bit like a curse word to me. I have had enough social distancing to last me a lifetime. I think… I could list a million negative impacts from this pandemic but to skip over the positive would not do justice to how God has been moving among us. It is always easy [...]

I started this post about 4 weeks ago, prior to covid-19 taking its effect in our nation. I find it relevant to where we are today. When fear and uncertainty shows up, people resort to their old habits of coping. Why? Because we want to control the situation. I call it indulging our insecurities. Insecurity [...]
In all the chaos and imposed distancing, we can find solace. We can find growth. We can restore relationship.
Restore our vision for the things of God.
