Pray for the Monkeys

PRAY FOR THE MONKEYS Holly Hall I am diagnosed with Attention Deficit Syndrom. This means I’m easily distracted, have trouble staying focused on a task, and occasionally find myself interrupting and/or reacting impulsively. One simple 30-minute task can turn into a pandemonium of thoughts diverting my attention away from the mission at hand. I’m grateful […]

Join a Team, Belong to a Community

I am a more faithful follower of Jesus Christ, a better friend, wife, […]

Approaches & Responses

APPROACHES & RESPONSES Sherri Drury What is the right approach or response to our friends and family members who are filled with doubts, are flirting with false teachers or have dove headfirst into sin?

Walking Among the Lampstands

Walking Among the Lampstands Sherri Drury We heard in the sermon this past Sunday that: Paul shows the enormous scope and importance of the church.

If someone will leave a church easily, will they leave their  relationship with God just as easily? When something […]

The Collective Love of Jesus

THE COLLECTIVE LOVE OF JESUS Sherri Drury Sometimes and in some seasons, I have experienced great frustration with the church. And historically, there have been more than just frustrations–there have been atrocities. But in these moments and with these realizations, I have to remember how much Jesus loves the church. And I have to pray […]

Amplifying the Right Voice

AMPLIFYING THE RIGHT VOICE Sherri Drury The saga of David as he waits to become king is riveting! The intrigue, the emotion, the drama, and the restraint, the waiting, and the trust. Remember when King Saul stopped by a cave while pursuing David without realizing that David and his army were hiding further back in […]
