Jesus, by his miraculous power, is able to feed 5,000+ people with a few loaves of bread and fish. And he does so by empowering his disciples to serve the crowds. Today, Jesus is still equipping and empowering ordinary people like you and me to serve others.
We've all been there before. We feel too busy to even eat. Thankfully, Jesus calls us out of the busyness to rest in him. In Mark 6, Jesus says to his disciples, "Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while." When we answer his call, we can begin to experience his rest.
Did you know that it is possible to do loving deeds without actually having love? Jonah is a great example of this. Although he (eventually) went to Nineveh, he still harbored ill feelings toward the Ninevites. Unlike Jonah, we can choose "the most excellent way" and can join God in loving all people!

"Yes." It's a short, simple word. A word we probaby say many times each day. However, saying "yes" to God is the best decision we can make. In God's Kingdom, even one "yes" can go a long way.

We Are Called

God is calling you and me, which is wonderful news! The problem is, we often don't know how to discern God's voice. Thankfully, we can learn how to better hear God's voice through practice, prayer, and community.

Not What I Expected

December 29, 2019
It's the most wonderful time of the year...for some of us. For others, this time of the year can be filled with disappointments and unmet expectations. In Matthew 2, we see that the first Christmas ever did not go how Mary and Joseph had expected. When we, too, find ourselves in difficult, unexpected places in life, we can rest in God's love and find comfort in community.
