Fulfilled: The Church on Mission

Posted by Erik Hall on

These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you—that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms must be fulfilled (Luke 24:44). Jesus fulfilled God’s plan for the redemption of the world! We are new creations in Christ! So...

It’s tough to be humble in our world today. There is so much pressure to be assertive (even aggressive), confident (even arrogant), proactive (even offensive). If we show any signs of deference, if we ever claim we aren’t sure of something, if we back-down to anyone for anything, we...

Lenten Journey 2019

Posted by Erik Hall on

Everyone knows that Easter is the most important and most celebrated Christian holiday of the year. We are not just celebrating the peace and joy of Jesus’ birth and God’s presence with us, like we do at Christmas. We are celebrating the reality that God loved the world so much that...

I was watching the Academy Awards the other night. The best and the brightest both on the screen and behind the scenes were recognized for their talent, hard-work, and commitment to their craft. During many of the acceptance speeches there was thanks and praise, celebration of the arts, stories...
