or·tho·dox·y noun 1. authorized or accepted doctrine and practice. Orthodoxy sounds like a problem for pastors or professors, why should it affect my everyday life? As we continue in Paul’s letter to the Galatians, he begins to unpack for us why getting the gospel right is of vital importance, not just for what we believe in our minds, […]
Don’t you wish you could put some things behind you? That there was a line you could draw across a point in time and say “That is not my life anymore, that was the old me.” As The Apostle Paul continues to remind his friends of the true gospel, he points to his own life […]
The gospel, or the good news of who Jesus is and what He has done for us, is only powerful when it is heard and believed in it’s proper form. It isn’t like a Tylenol, where half a pill might work half as well. Half a gospel doesn’t half-save, it doesn’t work at all; and […]

Our need for healing is deeply personal and, properly, an important part of our relationship with God. How are we as Christians meant to understand God’s healing, and then live in a world (and bodies) so much in need of it?
The last two weeks we have bee considering the gift that God gave us in Jesus. Of course that is what we celebrate today. That’s a great thing to think about God giving a gift, Jesus being the gift, and our receiving the gift. But what now that we have received Him? What do we […]
“God so loved the world that He gave His only Son…”, what strange paradox seems to lie at the heart of God’s love. So strange we often don’t even see it.
