The church of Christ, Part 1: The Movement.

November 22, 2014. Over the years I have been asked on a number of occasions a question that I find somewhat difficult to answer. “What kind of church do you go to?” The question isn’t difficult to answer because I am not readily able to call up the particular congregation of believers that I am…

So, you don’t like church?

September 11, 2014. There are many people today that simply don’t like church. That place you have to go every Sunday morning, sing in a group where others can hear you, listen to some guy give some boring speech about something you don’t really care about. It’s that place where you get judged and told not to…

Building fellowship.

May 28, 2014. Today was the last day of work with the first group that was here. Even though we have a second group coming, it is very sad to see the first group go. There will be a different dynamic, though still good I’m sure. I have especially loved getting to know the team…

March 26, 2014. “I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is…

The family of God.

February 26, 2014. I have set up a twitter account if you would like to receive notifications when I post. It would make me so happy if you followed me! @dailydevotion14. Also, if there is anything you would like me to discuss or any other way you would like to see me get media out,…

It is not good for man to be alone.

January 4, 2014. Thank you so much for supporting me in this endeavor that I am undertaking. It means so much to hear those little words of encouragement from friends and family, and even to see the followers I’m gaining that I do not know who they are. Relationships are the essence of life, and…
