I wind down this week with several reminders impressed on my mind of God’s love for the world, and the invitation he gives us to join him in his work of redeeming what is lost and restoring what is broken:
A new session of Christianity 101, and the joy of seeing people begin to discover the unique goodness and beauty of Jesus Christ. It reminds me to pray, diligently and faithfully, for those friends that God has brought me who are yet to know him as savior and king. Are you praying for those God has brought you?

This Sunday I’m excited for us to dive into a new teaching series we’re calling Honest to God: The Prayers We All Need.
What we’re hoping to do in this series is to work at going deeper and broader in prayer. The Scriptures are rich with stories, Psalms, and instructions on how to pray, yet most of us are pretty limited in how we approach prayer, easily falling into routines that serve us well in some seasons but less in others. Meanwhile the Scriptures teach us how to ask, how to confess, how to worship, how to lament, how to pray for guidance, how to pray our anger, etc.
If prayer was golf, most of us would only be playing with a couple of clubs. We want to learn to use the whole bag. »»
