Because You Say So…

Every time I read through one of the Gospels, I’m struck by the rollercoaster ride that Jesus’ disciples seem to be on. Some days, everything seems to be going their way. Other days, they face unexpected setbacks and perplexing situations. There are times when Jesus seems gracious and friendly to them, and other times it […]

I Thank God for You!

I find myself particularly thankful as I write this article. Not only is this the week of Thanksgiving (which our family will have the opportunity to celebrate by visiting a lot of our family out in Massachusetts), but we’re also nearing the end of 2017, which is my first full year of being blessed to […]

How’s Our Connection?

Recently, I was struggling with a portable lamp that seemed to be on the blink. At first I thought the bulb was blown, but when I monkeyed around with the cord a bit, I was able to get an occasional flash of light out of it and concluded it was a bad connection. I was […]

Telling and Hearing Our Stories

Biographies can be among the bestselling books, because there is something captivating about really getting to know someone’s story. Here at Redeemer, there are as many stories as there are people who call this church home. I recently had the opportunity to hear one man’s story, and it greatly inspired me in my faith and […]
