Modern Family?

May 03, 2012
A couple of weeks ago, my church started a new series called, “Modern Family.” As it so happens, we invited a couple of our friends to church that weekend and sat in the family chapel with their 2 year old – kind of gave me a taste for what life will be like in a few short months. Anyways…since I took the last two weeks off (with regard to my faith posts), I thought I’d start at the beginning of the series: “What Happened to the Family.” Warning, this is a long one.  Let me run a few statistics by you that our minister shared during the lesson: 40%...

Values: All or Nothing!

Our church just started a new series this past weekend called, “Written in Red: The Radical Sayings of Jesus.” For the next few weeks, we’ll be exploring some of Jesus’ most mind-blowing quotes found in the bible…and I’ll be reflecting on them here (if you’d like to hear this past week’s original message, click HERE).This week, we explored what Jesus said in Luke 14:25-27Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes,...
