Many people have an impulse these days to rise up and do something about what’s happening in the world. But often, we are unaware what we can or should do about a given issue. Few of us are actually in a position to change something or make a difference on global, social issues, but we know intuitively that doesn’t mean we should just sit back and do nothing. So what should we do? What can we do?...
We are not the first generation to feel very strongly and passionately about our issues. But it sure seems that the political and cultural climate of our day has created an atmosphere of intense “convictions” over things that should engender far more discussion than the knee-jerk cancellations that are the new normal. But the fact that the Bible does not directly tell us what to do on some things should help us keep our position in its proper place. When we do that, unity will be preserved and the gospel will enjoy a place at the center of Christian fellowship, where it belongs....
“Walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Eph. 4:1-3 ...
Perhaps like many of you, I swallowed hard and felt sick to my stomach a few times yesterday as I learned that the benchmark price for crude oil fell below zero for the first time in history. As I scanned the news feeds and listened to news media, a common word was used…”Unprecedented…Unprecedented…Unprecedented”. For residents of the oil rich Permian Basin, as if it were not already fearful enough that oil prices fell below zero, somehow it made it all the worse to hear that this is unprecedented! As I was praying for you yesterday, particularly for those whose vocation is in oil and gas, as well as for the rest of us who will be affected by the ripple effects of how this will impact our local economy, I sensed the Holy Spirit calling me to face my fears about the reality of unprecedented oil prices by fixing my eyes on an even greater reality....

We believe God calls us to go to our neighborhoods and to the nations to make disciples. One of the ways we can play a part in reaching the nations is by partnering with those in the field who are already laboring among unreached people groups and in hard to reach places. This past November, a team of 11 men and women representing 4 SG churches went to Kathmandu, Nepal. O...Keep Reading

There's something attractive about a job well done. Every time I walk into Rosa's Cafe (all three locations in Midland), I am captivated by the number of people behind the counter, each one doing his or her part, constantly moving with speed and efficiency, almost always getting the order right, moving massive amounts of people through the line at record speed, never compr...Keep Reading
Luke begins his gospel letting us know that he is writing an "orderly account" of what happened. He acknowledges that others have done the same thing. He tells us that he relied on "eyewitnesses and ministers of the Word" (1:2). He "followed all things closely for some time past" (1:3). And he's writing "that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taugh...Keep Reading
Am I the only one who pictures Charlton Heston and the scenes from his movie any time I read the story of the 10 Commandments or try to picture Moses? That story (and movie) has always been epic. But beyond the images of the classic film from the 1950s is a deeply theological and personal story. At first glance, it may appear to be a struggle between the forces of good (re...Keep Reading
