We had an amazing time at the Men’s Life Encounter last weekend.  As always, God showed up and showed off. It was a powerful time where 25 men from our network encountered Jesus in a personal way.  I think it is safe to say that none of us will ever be the same as we […]

“Come now, let’s settle this,” says the Lord.  “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow.  Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.” (Isaiah 1:18) Have you ever dyed a piece of cloth or stained a piece of wood?  Once you’ve done […]

Christmas often becomes a time when we commit ourselves to a never-ending “to-do list.” We make promises to our family, friends and co-workers that too often become burdens. From shopping, decorating, wrapping gifts, attending parties, making cookies and cooking, we run ourselves ragged mentally, physically and emotionally. Sometimes we make so many promises during the […]

It’s only 19 days until Christmas.  What a wonderful time of hope and joy Christmas can be.  The air is filled with songs like “Joy to the World” and “Tis the season to be Jolly.” Churches display serene, peaceful manger scenes with Jesus’ family and visitors gathered around Him smiling.  The Hallmark channel has non-stop […]

I’m still pretty stoked about our men’s retreat this past weekend.  As 25 of us gathered together in the beautiful mountains of western Virginia, God met us there in a big way! There wasn’t one of us that was not changed as a result of being at the retreat. The input sessions were powerful as […]
