“Hey, that was a great service at Building today!”

The congregating of Christ followers most likely started directly after the spread of Christianity in the first century. Over MANY years we have what we call church today. The beautiful buildings, sometimes testy air conditioning, hopefully comfy pews, potluck dinners, and outlandish youth group games are how the typical description of the church is perceived in typical minds and conversation. But, is that all we are? Are we defined by what we have and the look we give off? Have we become that superficial as a society? Now, don’t get me wrong, nice churches are most definitely a blessing from[…]

A little fun for your Friday morning…

What do you do when you find out one of your professors is turning the big 6-0? Bake cupcakes with your friends and break into his office to decorate, of course! Okay, maybe we didn’t really break into his office, we had another professor meet us and open it before he got to school, but for the sake of the story, let’s call it breaking in. Unfortunately we weren’t the only ones with the idea to decorate. Or maybe it was fortunate, because it adds to the element of surprise? We showed up and the door was covered in birthday[…]

Are You In A Small Group?

Hey Guys!! What’s up? How’s your week going? I don’t know why I’m asking you questions, you can’t respond! Anyway, this week has been stressful for me.  It’s all been work, work, work, sleep, work, work, eat, work, sleep, work.  Sometimes I feel like there is no time to myself or to just get away and relax.  But then there’s that time of week when my stress level goes down drastically. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are the three days a week that I just stop what I’m doing and have fellowship with some friends. Fridays I have a small group[…]

The hands. The feet.

This morning we had the privilege of listening to Cris Zimmermann speak about his ministry in Frankfurt, Germany. This young pastor began sharing with us a book he has been reading as of late called God is Not a Christian written by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In this book the Archbishop shares of a crucifix he found in a church in which Jesus had no arms or legs. The meaning behind it was that, as the church, we are to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world. That, as his disciples, we are to be the answer to[…]

The one where we walk with sticks.

This past week has definitely been my favorite! Guess why– it was PE week! Brad King and his wife came over from MNU and got to spend time with us in Paris as well as play some super fun games and do interesting activities. We played badminton which was so much fun! (Ty and I dominated-just sayin) Then we go to rock climbing and high wires/ropes courses. Yesterday we played disc golf and ultimate frisbee. After the class session was over there were six of us that wanted to keep playing and our game got pretty intense. Lauren, Ty, and I[…]

When You Got that Sista’ from Anotha’ Mista or that Brotha’ from Anotha’ Motha’……

What is family?   Classically, it is considered to be based of off lineage, blood, crazy Uncle Bert! For me, family is something different. I am adopted by my Great Aunt, so while that is still blood and I do get a few of my quirks from her, it’s just always been different! And not a bad different whatsoever. I admire and love my mom more than anyone in this world. (I’m not just saying that because she’ll read this lol) Growing up, my mom and sister were the biggest components of my life! Within our family, we were our[…]
