A Beautiful Layer Cake of Community

"Some best practices for relationships in community"

Titus 3

5-Church Is A Verb (1).png
Awakening to the reality that we are first and foremost God’s beloved children and heirs is the Good News that makes grace-filled, loving community even possible! All the other stuff, the “do this” and “avoid that” is all merely an overflow of our deep and eternal belonging in God, which constitutes our deep belonging to one another and to all of God’s creation. Once you have that (which, by the way, is already yours) you have everything!

"Some thoughts on mentoring"

Titus 1-2

Sometimes faith can only flower in us when we feel the weight of our freedom and the grace of God’s out-of-the-wayness. The Spirit, the ultimate Mentor, does sometimes “leave us behind in Crete” (Titus 1:5) with a messy situation, some general guidelines, and a whole lot of unknowns. But the absence is never total.
