What are the Unforced Rhythms of Grace?

Several years ago, I was attending a conference in Atlanta for youth pastors. At one of the general sessions, a band came up on stage that I had never heard of before… they were called The City Harmonic.

Immanuel: God is still with us

Merry Christmas, friends! I am praying you find yourself surrounded by loved ones today. As I write this, I’m hoping you’ll get to eat some special “Christmas-only” dishes, open some gifts, and sing some favorite carols.

Faith When It’s Difficult

The past couple of weeks remind us why our souls long for heaven. Shootings and fires. Grief and worry. The list feels long, and this is difficult. As those made in the image of God, we look at this and know this isn’t how it was meant to be. We long for the day when all the brokenness and wrong … Read More

Ever Feel Like There’s Not Enough?
