Celebrating the Greatest Leader Ever?

by Pastor Dave February 10, 2014

Greetings Fellow Journeyers, It has been awhile since the pastors have blogged about our shared Journey. I apologize for that – it isn’t that we have fallen off the road, or don’t think the scriptures and our shared journey isn’t important, life sometimes just gets busy… Speaking of which? How are you doing on the […]

Enjoy the Gospel of Mark… Really!

by Pastor Dave July 17, 2013

Yesterday, I was struck by something I read from a guy I really admire named Francis Chan.  He wrote this… “Have you ever thought to simply enjoy reading the Bible?  We often get so caught up in the busyness of our lives or the details of the biblical text that we forget that we should […]

Linen Undergarments and Holiness?

by Pastor Dave May 14, 2013

This week, in our Journey readings, we find ourselves in what many would consider a rather tedious or arduous (or if really honest we might even say – boring) section of scripture. Here, in the latter portion of Exodus, God is laying out to Moses the laws for his covenant people and detailed instructions regarding […]

Pathway to God’s Favor (Genesis 39)

by Pastor Dave March 31, 2013

  Who doesn’t want more favor? I love the Capitol 1 Credit card commercials with Jimmy Fallon. In only the way Jimmy can do he says, “who doesn’t want more cash.” Everybody does, except for that naughty little girl who always throws the cash back in his face – silly girl. The same could be […]

Philemon, Africa, and the Personal Benefits of Sharing your Faith…

by Pastor Dave May 12, 2012

Can you even find it? If you are not careful you will skip right over it, and if you are not too familiar with the New Testament, you might have a bugger of a time finding it. It’s only one page long in my New Testament; it is the little book of Philemon that packs […]

How To Experience an Epic Fail

by Pastor Dave April 16, 2012

Not every time you read a Bible passage will you have some mind-blowing revelation. It is kind of like eating—not every meal is a 7-course experience of culinary delight; sometimes you just eat a piece of toast on the fly (at least I do). On the other hand, you may be surprised by the voice […]

What to do with the “less engaging or pleasant” portions of scripture?

by Pastor Dave April 13, 2012

So, let’s be honest, knowing the purpose of the literature can be helpful, but it still doesn’t mean that the Levitical law, the book of Ezekiel and perhaps some of the other prophetic writings are the most interesting, engaging, relevant or exciting portions of scripture.  Some scripture that we read might feel rather dry, uninteresting […]

Ezekiel’s Tough Assignment

by Pastor Dave April 10, 2012

Well fellow Journeyers, by now you are deeply into one of the more challenging reads in scripture – Ezekiel.  If you think it is tough to read, put yourself for a moment in Ezekiel’s shoes.  This dude had a tough assignment.  He was called to prophesy during a time of great international upheaval. The Assyrian […]
