When God places donkeys in our lives, do we pay attention? Or do we convince ourselves that our actions don’t really matter and so we can do whatever we want?
Don’t let people just float by you in life! Pastor Tim turns to Philemon on this Labor Day weekend to think about the value God sees in each and every person.
As we continue exploring the story of Balaam, a man who teetered between listening to the Lord and listening to the world around him, we consider how God uses people (and donkeys) like us.
Are we simply knowing God’s Word or have we learned how to do what God’s Word calls us to do?
I can’t believe it was 10 years ago today I started my position teaching at Lindenwood. I truly loved my time teaching in the classroom there; I always miss it this time of year. I’m thankful to still be in touch with many of you who were my students and colleagues — friends — those five years were a treasure! I’m excited for what’s next with Little Hills Church, which is still very much intertwined with that part of St. Charles, which God always seems to lead me back to in ministry.
Talking donkeys? Paid prophets? What’s going on here? Balaam and his donkey (Numbers 22) help us to think about facing temptations and living faithfully as we start a new series tonight. In the series, we’ll look at this man who teetered between listening to the Lord and listening to the world around him and see the ways we struggle with the same.
What do we do when the things we do that we thought were lasting get wiped away? As we turn to the fall of the kingdom of Judea this week, I reflect on that question.
What is our mission today as a church and as individuals? How does it affect what we do in our daily lives?
We all yearn for rescue from aspects of life… but is that just a fairytale hope? Melanie helps us consider where our help comes from as we turn to Ruth during this week’s 52 Verses, 52 Books, 52 Weeks.
None of this surprises me. It was predictable when both Presidents Trump and Biden said they intended to simply withdraw without a game plan to avoid this exact scenario. We’re playing out Saigon again, but with a force that will be unlikely to become a semi-friendly trading partner someday.
