Rev. Dr. Geordie Zeigler tells us that there are two waypoints that are foundational in the country of Grace. First, In the country of grace, only little children can enter. Second, In the country of grace, the gift is the giver.
The Rev. Dr. Geordie Zeigler invites us to take a journey with him in our faith as he recounts his own faith journey that took him all over the world, to China, Canada, and Scotland. He asks a simple but significant question, "What is your desire for your relationship with God this summer?"

It is really difficult to lose someone that you loved. Our Christian hope is that because Jesus conquered death, we shall too someday.

Because of the Covid vaccines, it’s amazing how much sweeter this Mother’s Day was than one year ago. As we think about our mothers and give thanks to God for their sacrificial love, let us likewise follow Jesus’ command to love one another sacrificially. And one of the most practical ways we can demonstrate that today is to be vaccinated (if we are able) against the spread of this deadly disease. As we love one another in this way, we will show our
On this National Day of Prayer
On the first Thursday of each May, the President of the United States calls all Americans to a National Day of Prayer. And as a country we certainly need all the help we can get. I pray especially for unity and a willingness to love one another sacrificially despite our differences.
But my heart is more heavy this morning for the country of India. India desperately needs God’s divine interventi
Jesus said, “I am the Good Shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me.” It’s amazing to watch the difference in reaction when a true shepherd calls their sheep as opposed to an imposture. The sheep immediately come running toward the true shepherd but don’t even lift a head toward a fake one. In the same way, those of us who know Jesus recognize his voice when he calls us toward him, and we follow. Who are you following? Do you know Jesus
After Jesus’ resurrection, he appeared to his followers about ten reported times. While it must have been hard for them to be apart from him, Jesus knew that in order for them to pick up the ministry he left behind, Jesus had to be away. That’s why he had said, “It is better for you that I go, than if I stayed.” Even so today, Jesus’ disciples train up other disciples to continue his ministry on earth. The question is...Who are we train
Shortly after his resurrection, Jesus appeared to his followers in various settings. One of the disciples, Thomas, just happened to be absent during that first appearance. He struggled to believe when the others told him that Jesus was alive. But instead of shaming Thomas on account of his doubt, the other disciples created space for Thomas and his doubts until Jesus could satisfy Thomas’ uncertainty himself.
What a beautif
The story of Jesus’ resurrection is most definitely THE greatest story EVER told! Not only does it provide us hope for new life when we die, but it also encourages us that God can and does resurrect us to new life now! In this past year of COVID, we have certainly had to live through some challenging times. But hope is here. New life is coming! Good things are coming just around the corner! That is GOOD NEWS!
