In the first book Lewis wrote, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the land of Narnia is trapped under the curse of a forever winter.

And the chance to get outdoors was thrilling!   I love getting out in nature, because it’s in creation that I most readily connect with God. There’s something about mountain … [Read More…] January 16, 2022

  From the Brunswick Manifesto, to the Declaration of Independence, to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous “I have a dream,” the history of the world has turned upon ideas. 2,000 years ago, Jesus turned the world on its head with His Sermon on the Mount. He proclaimed an upside-down Kingdom so radical, they killed him … [Read More…] January 9, 2022

  Happy New Year!   I don’t know about you, but the past few years have simultaneously rushed by way too fast and crawled by at a snail’s pace. These pandemic-dominated years have felt so long and drawn out; yet time has flown by as days have blended together and life rushes on. So it’s with mixed … [Read More…] January 2, 2022

  “That was amazing! We’re so glad we came!”   That’s what our neighbors told us last Sunday after the Christmas Concert. They then proceeded to text our Sandburg neighborhood group about how awesome the concert was and how everyone needed to make sure to come next year. How amazing is that?!?   It’s even … [Read More…] December 19, 2021

  You never know what God might do through a simple invitation!   I love how Philip, one of Jesus’ first disciples, responded to the skeptical Nathaniel, who wondered if there was anything at all to this Jesus. Philip simply invited him to “Come and see” (John 1:46). I love that. It’s the power of … [Read More…] December 5, 2021

In tough times—like those we’ve been through in these past years, and still continue to face in many ways—it does our heart good to pause and … [Read More…] November 21, 2021
