Posted by Kerry Milbrodt on

Dear Friends, Summer weather is in full swing, even though school has started for our students. We wish them all the best in the new school year. I remember when I started working full time. The thought of no more summer vacation was devastating. Sometimes, it still feels that way! Your...

Posted by Lee Cook on

It’s tempting to romanticize the lives of the first followers of Jesus. The Holy Spirit moved with power, heroes like Peter and Paul walked the streets, and the Church was growing by leaps and bounds. And while all of that is certainly true, the early believers were surrounded by competing...

Lee's Latest: Aug 2019 A collection of songs

Posted by Lee Cook on

How often have you listened to the radio and sung along with a song you haven’t heard for 20 years? It’s amazing how songs get embedded in our long-term memories. The Psalms are a collection of songs that can get “stuck in our head” if we let them, but more than that...

Posted by Lee Cook on

What’s the key to a powerful devotional life? How can we overcome the obstacles, pitfalls, addictions, and trials in our lives? Where do we find strength when all hope seems lost? How can I hear from God when my heart is hard and my prayers are cold? What is my response to people who hurt...

Dear Friends, How can it be June already? Summer is beckoning with promises of no school, family vacations, beach time, longer days, and warm nights. Somehow, summer just seems to be more relaxed and free of obligations. Of course, there are always the usual daily duties but they feel easier in...

Lee's Latest: June 2019 Does the world seems out of control

Posted by Lee Cook on

What do we do when the world seems out of control? How do we respond when it seems that God has failed to keep his promises? Daniel and his friends were part of the first exile from Judah to Babylon. They were the brightest boys, taken from their homes, given new (pagan) names, and (re)educated...
