Trust

Last week I got to know a local artist at the Pajama Factory here in Williamsport. It wasn’t the first time I met him, we had crossed paths in the coffee shop there a few times before. But we had a chance to connect more and he showed me his studio and what he’s working…

Home Sweet Home

We bought a house! Since getting married, Elizabeth and I have stayed in a single room apartment and, needless to say, we are excited about this next step in our lives. Now, I certainly have a new appreciation for how expensive things are. I was, let’s say… shocked… to find out how expensive carpet is! We…

Woodworking and Discipleship

In Williamsport, at the Pajama Factory is a community woodshop. Run by a few gentlemen who are extremely gracious with their time and knowledge of woodworking. These gentlemen have been able to build a community of people who share this common passion. About a year ago I decided to take a class and dive right…

  Last week, my wife Elizabeth and I had the opportunity to go the Exponential conference in Orlando, Fl. Thousands of church planters gather each year from around the world to dive deeper into what God might have in store for them by delivering the word to new places.  I’ll admit my first year attending…

In what areas of your life do you struggle it’s accepting grace? We enjoyed lasagna, salad and fruit. We talked about hopefully…

The Biblical Narrative – Where is your place in this story?

Working for the CCO “Coalition for Christian Outreach” we often talked about the Bible in four parts. That is, “Creation, Fall, Redemption and Restoration”. While focusing on and studying the Biblical narrative, I find myself in awe that God’s plan for us involves… us. The sinful person I am is invited into this Biblical narrative…

Ravine Road

We have now had two community group meetings and I can see all sorts of possibilities emerging.  Unfortunately, between weather problems and people falling ill, we have had to postpone for several weeks.  We will be meeting Tuesday, February 23, God willing. Just one of the blessings to come from this endeavor:  One of our…
