With the holidays in full swing, one of the greatest lessons you can learn to practice is: “you can be right or you can be in relationship.” Take this important lesson and apply it not only to holiday meals with that uncle with the crazy politics or theology, but also apply it to your everyday interactions at work and on social media.

‪How do we treasure traditions of old, while embracing the emerging future? We speak from both sides of our mouth, if you will. We must live in surround sound. Listening to the echoes of the past, while leaning in to hear the whispers of tomorrow. We hold treasures in one hand & grasp for the future with the other. We walk boldly with the Lord, to beautifully blend it together in the biosphere of our lives.‬

From Tablet To Table (Colorado Springs: NavPress, 2014)

From Tablet To Table is a wonderful book exploring the theology and importance of the table. A short and powerful read, that if put in to practice could change your family, your neighborhood, and even the world.

“What if the Bible were seen less as a tablet of ink than as a table of food? From Tablet to Table invites readers to explore the importance of The Table in biblical theology, and what it might mean for us to bring back the table to our homes, our churches, and our neighborhoods. Sweet explores how our failure to understand and appreciate “the most sacred item of furniture in every home” has created such a deficit in our fast-food, take-what-you-like-smorgasbord, together-but-separate society.” – Excerpt from Amazon.com

Supernatural Marriage

Gary Thomas
July 28, 2017

A exceptional article from Gary Thomas on a truly supernatural marriage in Christ.

So much of Christian teaching today is about us developing “our” gifts, improving “our” talents, reaching “our” potential, yet so much of Jesus’s teaching and modeling is about surrendering to the work of the Holy Spirit. Let’s allow marriage to teach us to trust this Holy Spirit…You’ll have far more success and satisfaction in your marriage if you start asking more of God and less of your spouse.”
