Voices for Worship

By Ellen Nimmo “Save your voices for worship.” I read that sentence in book earlier this month and was thumped into thinking.  Stunned into silence.  Mediated into meditation.  And, I wonder, how does it sound to you – this idea of worship, of outward reverence and supplication?

By Matt Gordon Gone are the days of quietly breaking New Year’s resolutions. When Abraham Lincoln invented the internet, it began as merely a place to buy and sell crops and get catfished, but now it is the broadcast hub of all delusions. Want to get skinny?

A Wonderful Thing You Just Can’t Shake

By Brock Bukowsky Sometime around 2010, I began to get convicted. Not in the way where you just shrug it off and move on, either. No, this was the sort of thing I couldn’t shake. As the company I co-founded grew, I became convinced that God had built a platform through our workplace to inspire people to deep, real faith. In fact I wrote that, and more, to our executive…

Favorites of 2020

This year has been a wild ride.  There’s been change, division, uncertainty, and plain ol’ strangeness.  But, with all that came some good things too.  Opportunities.  Opportunities for change, to try on new endeavors, learn from old ones, and move forward, towards more understanding, more unity.  As we think back on this extraordinary year, we wanted to share a few of our favorite words and moments each Monday through the…

The Ouachita Wilderness – A Christmas Memory

By Ellen Nimmo Eagle Rock Loop.  It’s a 26.8 mile trail in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas and Oklahoma.  The loop contains a number of hills and mountains which make up a, if not colorful, at least curious, nominal list of footnotes in any wanderer’s tale:  Raspberry Mountain, Hurricane Knob, Sugartree, Leader, Blaylock, Bresh Heap and Fodderstack Mountains.  The Little Missouri River runs through the loop with many an adjoining…
