Sophistication Through Simplicity

I didn't just post a picture of a black square, this is actually my desktop. I love the clean, simple, and yet still very sophisticated... desktop, home screen, written code, verse, prose, lyric, file structure, office, room, company, house, life... etc (could be I like this so much because life in reality is actually very…

Church and Amazing Lyrics of How Deep the Father’s Love for Us

The shot above was one I took while the band was warming up for worship this morning. I never get tired of being around the worship band and their practices. It is just as much a part of worship to me as when the official worship time begins. This church location, our second site, has…

How Deep The Father’s Love For Us

We used this modern day hymn in our service this past Sunday and the lyrics were just incredible to me... the line "I hear my mocking voice call out among the scoffers" really puts an emphasis on God's love for us. I know the song is about 10 years old at this point but still…

Searching Out the Reasons for Writing Religitic

This is my first actual post on this blog, so titled Religitic, in a while. The title I chose years and years ago for the life we Christians sometimes lead, one that is partly spiritual, partly heretical, and often mostly hypocritical. Therefore, I combined heretic, and hypocrite, with religion and got Religitic. The walk of…

Blessed Are Those Who Believe Without Seeing :: Easter Sunrise

This morning we started off with an incredible sunrise service, of course just at the time the sun came up over the trees. It really was something to see. God's creation displayed for all to see while we worship our risen Savior. That is my photo of the day today (and my P365 photo as…

Lent Has Brought Us To This Maundy Thursday Prayer

Every year, on this day, Maundy Thursday, we come to the Lord in prayer, as Jesus did with his disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane. On that night, Jesus asked his disciples to watch and pray... because our spirit is willing, but our flesh is weak (Matthew 26:36-46), and then Jesus was betrayed by one…

Christmas Eve, Where Christ Lights Up the Darkness

It was a wonderful night at Cornerstone tonight celebrating the coming birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. I always love the candles, it is such a reminder that Christ is the one who brought light into the darkness of this world, and walked among us as well. Merry Christmas everyone.

Summer Camp Cornerstone 2011 Gets Underway :: Photos

So it's that time of year again when all the churches in the country move into VBS mode (we actually call it Camp Cornerstone here, doesn't sound quite as scary to me, but doubt the kids care what the name is, they always have a blast). Anyway, last night was the kick off for this…

Our Demand for Constant Productivity

When we turn to the bible we see very little demand for constant productivity, especially in ways we measure today. What we do see is a constant effort by Jesus to slow the pace of life, making time for meditation, prayer, and communion with the Father and His friends. via in part from The Next…

Reflections on Religious Pluralism in our Culture

Truth is something that is a main theme around my blog and encompasses much of what I write about as well. Truth, or lack of it, can take many forms and many arguments, but there is an ultimate truth, or deception of the ultimate truth prevailing in our society today about salvation. This ultimately goes…
