Formation from Creation

By Brock Bondurant Psalm 139:13-16 – 13For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. 14I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Trucker Hat

By: Matt Gordon Someone recently gave me a new hat. It is called a trucker cap, I think. My normal headwear is a baseball cap. I don’t know what this says about how I’m navigating life. Is the move from baseball to trucker a promotion? Have I become more rugged perhaps? What I do know is that this development seems to indicate a rather severe dearth in vocationally associated headwear.…

Confessions of a Counselor: Not a Part, But the Whole

By Kelly Wright When my kids were toddlers, we spent a lot of time playing on the floor together. While the playing was fun, getting up off the floor, for me, was not. My knees were so messed up that I felt like a 30-year-old in an 80-year-old body. After the pain got too much, I sought medical care. When medication didn’t work, my doctor referred me to a brilliant…

Don’t Miss It!

By Heather Cox Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith… Hebrews 12:2a Last week, I had the opportunity to run along the Pacific Crest Trail in the shadows of Mt. Hood.  Everything about it was amazing: the people, the weather, the grit and determination required to complete the race. I should add the scenery to this list, yet I found myself barely even…

Promise of Peace

By Brock Bondurant Hebrews 6:15 – And thus Abraham, having patiently waited, obtained the promise. My wife’s favorite verse in Scripture is the verse above.

He simply believed that God would fulfill the promise He…

When Does Life Begin?

By Matt Gordon When does life begin? That is not the only question swirling in our country, but it is a pressing one. One’s answer to that could shape their moral positioning on abortion. Who gets freedom? Choice? Who gets to decide? How much of this is actually religious? Political? Are we willing to have a real conversation on equity? How are we doing at supporting one another and caring…

Confession of a Counselor – Scared to Sleep

By Kelly Wright When I was five, a huge tornado ripped through my hometown, Sedalia. Thankfully our elderly neighbors had a basement that kept my mom, baby sister, cousin, and me safe. Thinking about that day, the smell of the damp basement, the feel of the cool, concrete floor, and glimpsing the dark sky through the tiny basement windows flood my memory. It’s incredible how intense memories can take us…

The World Unseen

By Matt Gordon On a visit to an impoverished country, I found myself awake. Sleepless. There in the neglected hours, I wasn’t contemplating my fellow human’s plight, nor was I resolving to make a difference in the world. Honestly, I just had to pee. The complicated part of that, for me at least, is that I don’t see well in the dark. I could illustrate this a hundred ways, but…
