Bless Every Home

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Every so often I want to remind you all of a great resource for reaching out to your neighbors. We've mentioned it a few times in the worship service lately, but I want to also have it written as well. It's called "Bless Every Home," and the website is...

Praying for our Neighborhoods

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I love the initiative of the Prayer Catalysts to challenge you to pray for your neighborhoods in February. The idea is simple - at least once in the month of February, you and your family walk through your neighborhood (or drive) and pray for your neighbors. If you know something about...

One day, I'll be too old

Posted by Colby Kinser on

One day I'll be too old to shoulder some of your burden, but I'll need plenty of others to carry mine. So give me the privilege of bearing some of those burdens now. One day I'll be too old to carry a tune, but others will use music as therapy to help me remember fleeting images of my life. So...

Judge Not ... Except in this Case

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Most of you know well that one of my few hobbies is judging high school speech and debate tournaments. The judge observes a group of presentations or a debate, evaluates the performances, assigns the rankings, and adds a few helpful comments. There are several rounds of this for each...

CoJourners

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I am grateful for Sarah S who led us through the CoJourners study over these last four Sundays. I love the balance between challenging us and setting reasonable goals and expectations. God has put us in the lives of people who need Jesus, He's already at work in their lives, and He wants to use...

Every Case of Atheism is Temporary

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Every case of atheism is temporary. Not a single case will go uncured. The same is true for agnosticism (the view that it is impossible to know God even if He exists). Every person who claims God doesn't exist or that He is unknowable will one day absolutely agree that God not only exists, but...

The Tyranny of Titles

Posted by Colby Kinser on

"Black Lives Matter." Boom - I just created some sort of response in you, perhaps even a strong one. And not the same response in each of you. I understand the reasoning behind the variety of responses. I can create the same range of responses with the phrase "white privilege." How thin is the...

Hands and Viruses

Posted by Colby Kinser on

The COVID-19 Coronavirus has gripped the world conversation. It has affected many of us even without contracting it. One of our own canceled a year-long teaching job in South Korea. At least one other is working from home because of legitimate concerns in the workplace. All of us are having...

Dirty Money

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Every dollar in your wallet, indeed every dollar in your bank, has passed through both evil and clean hands. Every single dollar. You have (most likely) never had a buck that has remained completely free from someone's avarice, evil intent, or pride. Sometimes we get the notion that some money...

Be Safe and Dangerous

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Be safe and dangerous. Be safe in the sense that people feel safe with you, safe enough to share their lives, their concerns, and their less-than-flattering selves with you. Develop authentic enough relationships where people know you as a safe person. Jesus was a safe person. People with the...
