Fight the Good Fight

Written by Heather Corsi | February 11, 2011 | 1 Timothy 5 - 6

1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

I’m a pretty practical girl.  Unfortunately, that same practicality often manifests itself through cynicism.  Cynicism comes easy to me.  One of my most vivid memories from elementary school was sitting at my desk, reading …

Solomon>Shakespeare

Written by Kurtis Parks | February 2, 2011 | Song of Solomon 5 - 6

I’m not going to pretend that I know all of these metaphors, and exactly what they represent, and how they tie in to us now, as the modern day church. I’m not even going to pretend that I know the reason why Song of Solomon was placed in the Bible. Scholars have wrestled with that for centuries, and unfortunately, I don’t have the answer. Many believe that this book was …

The Tree Of Life

Written by Amanda Giobbi | January 29, 2011 |

Revelation—what we already know:
• John is the author
• Called “Revelation” because it is the revelation of Jesus Christ
• It addresses (though not in a way that we can know for sure) the return of Jesus and his future triumph over evil
• Many people have different interpretations of what Revelation means

On December 27th you read Genesis 2:9, in …

Stop Drop Repent

Written by Andy Pisciotti | January 26, 2011 | Revelation 7 - 9

Everyone is searching for something.  The issue most of us face is that we are searching for the wrong things.  We look for satisfaction from our jobs and where we work.  We look for love in places and from people who can not and will not love us back.  We look for comfort from food, from chocolate, and from alcohol (seriously, choose your poison).  We look for community in isolated …

Passionate. Conviction. Reckless.(Revelations 1-3)

Written by Jenilee LeFors | January 24, 2011 | Revelation 1 - 3

Passionate. Conviction. Reckless.

Many people are passionate, convinced and reckless for their certain sports team. Whether it is football, basketball, baseball, NFL, NCAA, NBA, people are passionate, convinced, and reckless for their teams. People will go to great lengths to demonstrate their affiliation with their team. And especially when the winning comes, there is an even greater (almost obnoxious) passion. (Can anyone say Steeler fans?)

I don’t know …

Stay Golden

Written by Kurtis Parks | January 23, 2011 | Exodus 37 - 40

It’s pretty interesting to me reading through God’s instructions for the building of the tabernacle, and it’s contents, that much of it is made with fine, elaborate resources, the main one being pure gold. In fact, according to the measurements and weights of that time, the amount of gold used for the construction was equal to roughly 2,200 pounds by today’s standard. The amount of silver was 7,550 pounds today, …

Tabernacle Contributions (Exodus 34-36)

Written by Nina Schmidgall | January 22, 2011 |

This week my adorable niece was in our office (I use the word “office” very broadly here – ha) and it seemed like she was upset.  When I pressed, she explained, through tears that she had not been happy with the report card she had gotten that day.  I will skip any details since that is her story and not mine…but my heart swelled with empathy as my memory flooded …

Just a few reminders!

Written by Reagan Chaney | January 21, 2011 |

After today’s reading I looked over and saw that my notes are more like a list of reminders.

1. Go has given us abilities that are our gifts and talents. And I have given to all able men ability (31:6)
2. Don’t forget to Sabbath. Take your seventh day and rest! I have noticed that when I walk away from things for a day I can …
