A New Year is Coming

BibleReadingFB

It is that time of year again, when we ring out the current year (2016) and welcome the new year (2017). For most of the world, the new year is a time when life feels fresh and new. This seems to be the one time when we can put behind us our problems and get a fresh start. Curiously, I have seen a number of people ready for 2016 to end because it has been “such a horribl...

The Importance of the Incarnation

Incarnationpost

This is the time of year when people, especially Christians, think about the incarnation. The term “incarnation” comes from the Latin verb incarnare, which means “to be made flesh,” and it is the term we used to describe how God, in the Person of Jesus Christ, came into the world and took on humanity. It is a great mystery of the Christian faith ...

Be thankful for America, but do not rest your hope in her

This is the weekend leading up to the celebration of Independence Day, or the July 4th holiday, in the United States. Our nation does not have as long a history as others, but it does seem very long and far away to celebrate an event that occurred 240 years ago....

Bible Reading Time!

It is that time of year again. A new year is approaching and with it a whole host of New Year’s Resolutions. For many Christians, that means another attempt to read through the entire Bible in a year....

Starting to See Results

One thing that has become obvious this week is that the young people who have come with us have been a huge part of what we have been able to accomplish. There is little substitute for youthful energy and drive. Additionally, the young people of Christ Church continue to show (as they do back in Katy) that they are willing to take initiative on work (not waiting to be told...

Vacation Bible School at Christ Church

Each summer, the people of Christ Church band together to bring their time and talent to show children in the Katy community the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is amazing to me how much effort is involved in hosting more than 100 children for a week of mornings!...

Reflections at 45

It’s October 25th, that is, my birthday. I have now turned the ripe, solidly middle-age of 45. I have long reached the point where, by average life expectancy, I have more years behind me than in front. With a nod to those my senior, I do understand that this does not make me objectively “old.” But I do think that a birthday is a good occasion to take s...

When we need forgiveness

The great challenges of life can be crushing to our minds and spirits. This is true when we are weighed down by our own inadequacies, mistakes, and especially our sin. We can do everything we want to try and distract ourselves from our need, but in the end it is not enough. We can pretend that our circumstances are not as black as they are; we can make excuses for our sins...

Off to the border

On Friday, our small group from Christ Church crossed the U.S. - Mexico border on our way to the Center for Church Planting (CPI) Vision Weekend in Monterrey. Crossing the border was less involved than I thought it would be, but there was still paperwork to fill out, a deposit to be made in order to bring the car into Mexico, and dollars to turn into pesos. As we travelled...

iPad apps

As impressive as the hardware behind the iPad (and the iPhone) is, the real power is in the myriad of apps that can be run on these devices.  For virtually every intended use, there are several different options of apps to be purchased.  I have been using an iPhone for several years now, and last year acquired an iPad.  Many people have asked me to make app ...

The start of a new year is the perfect time to plan to read through the Bible. There are many reading plans that are available – chronological ...
