For Kingdom Reasons

September 2012 We have just finished our summer time with youth groups serving or staying here at Christ’s Body.  Each group brings it’s own unique mix of passion, nervousness and eagerness to serve.  During my time welcoming them I share several reflections and challenges.  The first is the story of Jesus and His disciples unexpectedly […]

Some Brother Bob Vignettes

June 2012 There is so much to say about our friend Bob….

Two Hands Up

January 2012 We met Shawn a year ago.  At first I noticed Shawn’s big smile and warm heart.  As I got to know him he shared some of the pain behind that smile.  Unfortunately for Shawn he spent many years in our foster care system.  Sometimes the placements were in good homes, other times, abusive […]
