Nuts and Bolts of Confession

If we do not confess our sin to God and close friends in our church body, we are saying that our sin is better than Jesus, and that His death and resurrection is not sufficient for our forgiveness.

Ephesians 6.10-20: Where Idealism Comes To Die

“This is where idealism comes to die.” She said it so matter-of-factly. DC’s an interesting place. We love Silver Spring, and are beginning to figure out life here.

The Good Samaritan

The wrong question guarantees the wrong answer. Pharisees are great at this kind of thing. It’s why we find ourselves asking the wrong questions all of the time.
