All Things New

Posted on January 15, 2020 | By Robby White

Something is new and then it is old. It becomes obsolete after the novelty has worn off. Eventually it becomes outdated and discarded for the next new thing. Think about the technological tools that have dazzled us initially only to be replaced before our contract could be renewed. It is not that the technology does […]

A Living Word-The Bible in 4D

Posted on September 16, 2019 | By Robby White

Experiencing the Bible in 4D Some years ago I went to a 4D movie at the World of Coca-Cola with my grand boys. I had never attended a 4D movie and had no idea what to expect. They issued 3D glasses to us as we entered the theatre. As the movie started, there was a scene […]

Such Is The Kingdom

Posted on March 27, 2019 | By Robby White

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” Matthew 19:14   So often we talk about the kingdom of heaven as if we were talking about a place out beyond time. After all, isn’t heaven a […]

My Goal

Posted on February 21, 2019 | By Robby White

My Goal I’m a planner. Maybe it’s part personality and part an effort to be effective. To be honest, it can be a great source of frustration. The best made plans can turn out to be nothing more than an unused roadmap some days. Other days, your plans pan out and you feel as though […]

The Power of Encouragement

Posted on January 24, 2019 | By Robby White

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11 Encouragement is such an important part of the Christian life and yet we often dismiss it as something minor or insignificant. On the surface, we consider encouragement as nothing more than a pat on the back. The truth is, […]

The Conversation Changer

Posted on December 6, 2018 | By Sam Hawkins

If you live in our area, you’ve seen the bright blue signs Locust Grove has distributed as part of the “Change the Conversation” campaign. We jumped into this movement because it’s clear that public conversation is not currently in a healthy state. Sadly, it’s a mess. There’s too much anger, too much fear, and too […]

God With Us

Posted on November 26, 2018 | By Robby White

The Christmas season is one of my favorite times of the year. It also turns out to be one of the most stressful and difficult times of the year. There are so many activities and demands placed on each one of us that stress levels seems to be turned up. You can see it on […]

Posted on April 1, 2018 | By Sam Hawkins

In the reading today from Acts, Peter shares the Gospel – the Good News, the proclamation of good tidings – that Jesus was anointed by God (i.e., God’s Messiah) and that God has raised Jesus from the dead as a sign that he has been given authority as Lord. This is the Good News that […]

Daily Readings for March 31, 2018 (Holy Saturday)

Posted on March 31, 2018 | By Sam Hawkins

Holy Saturday obviously does not capture the Christian imagination like either of the days surrounding it. In many Christian traditions, the day has been relatively neglected. However, in recent times there has been increased attention paid to the question this day raises. What should it mean to Christians to contemplate a day in which God […]

Daily Readings for March 30, 2018 (Good Friday)

Posted on March 30, 2018 | By Sam Hawkins

Good Friday is the most solemn day of the Christian calendar. It is in every way an antidote to a view of Christianity that is too sweet and shallow to grapple with the realities of existence. Good Friday sees, in concentrated form, the evil and darkness that damages God’s good creation. In following Christ, we […]
