A video shown at the 2014 North Georgia Annual Conference reminds us of things that can help create new places for new people.
What if we took seriously Jesus' words that the first shall be last and the last will be first?
A perfect porch is a place where the soul can rest.
You see empty pews. I see community.
The diversity of lifestyle patterns that proliferates in American society is generally underrepresented in the church.
A pastor asks: Isn't balance, rather than stability, a true realization of our mission as communities of faith?
Game theory--and the Bible--teaches church leaders to cooperate, push back against betrayal and then, finally, forgive.
As you look at your chronologies of mentors and mentees, what balance do you observe? How have you taken and passed along?
"You can't understand the war fully without investigating the religious dimensions of the war."
Give thanks this Memorial Day for those who have served for us.
