He is Risen

He is Risen Indeed

That a man named Jesus lived and taught love, and that he was publicly executed by the Romans under false charges made by his peers, is historically certain. But what happened next–that he was raised from the dead on the third day–is so amazing that it deserves, at least, to be investigated.. Or, at best,…

Greatest EVER?

“…the greatest of all time…”   “The most decorated _______ EVER….”   “We’re seeing history in the making…”   “…has just written their place in the history books…”   “No one has ever…”   “We may never see anything like this again…”   These are phrases that are kicked around a lot by commentators—not just in…

5 Steps

Recently, we completed a series called the Art of Neighboring. I’m often humbled and impressed with how the Lord guides me through His Word. But this series, I believe was exceptionally important. Recently and often, I hear people try to compress Jesus’ ministry to one word: Love. They’ll say, “Jesus was all about love and he…

Happy New Year!

Looking back, I can see all the ways the Lord was present through moments of joy and trial. I’m so thankful for Restoration Covenant Church and am excited to see how He will continue to favor us in 2016 as we serve Him with humility!

Opening Up Space

For weeks now, we’ve been busy raising the roof… I don’t mean the dance move, I’m mean literally taking up the ceiling line in our sanctuary. The space that we lease for our church has ceiling tiles set at 9ft. For the most part this didn’t bother us much. Nice facilities are a luxury in the…

Our Own Worst Critic

Everyday, we hear voices of confusion, condemnation and criticism. And, if we’re honest, they come mostly from ourselves. This past Sunday, we looked at the call to protect ourselves from negative voices in Colossians 2:8-19 “Don’t let anyone take you captive with philosophy…” “Don’t let anyone judge you for (how or when you worship)…” “Don’t…

Bike

The Path Less Traveled

There have been 4 significant times in my life when I’ve really enjoyed biking… And this is one of them. I recently picked up a new bike which has been a lot of fun. Normally, I’m a tennis player, but my passion for biking has surged again. The first time was when I was 12. I…

Elevator Speech

In marketing, they say you should always have ready your elevator speech. That’s the short compelling description of what your vision is so when asked, you’re ready to give a credible answer. Even though (or maybe because) my first career was in marketing, I don’t love feeling like making buy viagra a sales pitch about…
