Biblical unity is often misunderstood as the lack of conflict. However, conflict is a reality even when loving, committed people gather. Biblical unity is achieved only when reconciliation is present. ... See MoreSee Less

I am getting excited about starting my fall preaching series call REALationships. Here is brief write up on it.
Everything that God commanded about living a godly life comes down to REALationships. The abundant life that Jesus promised is found primarily in loving God and loving our neighbors as ourselves. Our REALationships are to be just that: real, open and honest with unconditional love that binds us together. Nine of the forty-nine commands that Jesus gave us speak directly to REALationships. For nine weeks, this fall we will explore the different facets of how we can truly love one another deeply. It will be fun to explore together the unchangeable truths of God’s Word as we learn how to become better neighbors. ... See MoreSee Less

What do you do when someone hurts you, takes advantage of you, degrades you, publically humiliates you, violates your rights and infringes on your personal freedoms? Do you retaliate in anger? Do you review the offense over and over rehearsing fantasies of vengeance? Do you roll over and allow the behavior to continue at your own expense? If you choose to hate, retaliate, and get even with them, you create the environment that keeps them always in your head, in your mind, and in your heart—and never free of them. Realize that if you do these things that person will always have power over you. There is a way to handle those who continue to hurt you and it doesn’t involve the Mafia! Jesus has a different way and it starts with not resisting the evil person. ... See MoreSee Less

Update from earlier today (8/5) from Nate: "It’s official - we touched down on Haitian soil … with no issues whatsoever! Even Port-au-Prince was a breeze (never thought I would say that). We got to our hotel at about 11:30am, got lunch, then a tour of the property and time with the kids at the orphanage. We just hopped out of the ocean for a much-needed cool down. Tonight we will be resting and catching up on much needed sleep.
I am already blown away at how different Mission of Grace is compared to last trip. In just two years, it has expanded its borders, grown in each ministry area, and remained faithful to the high calling to disciple students. Their mission is “to create the future leaders of Haiti.” Two years have passed, and it looks like that hasn’t changed!
Looking forward to giving you more updates.
Yes, just posting a new update… Thanks for praying, they are on their way home today.
