Do you fear God?

A pastor and friend of ours closed a recent sermon by asking the congregation to mediate on the following for the upcoming week:  “Do you fear God? If so, what does that look like? If not, how might that increase?”  We had just gone through Psalm 128 which begins in verse 1 by saying: “Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in his ways!” In the short, six-verse Psalm “bless” is used four times. 2/4 of those times blessing is connected to “fearing God.”  What does it mean to "Fear God"?

What is God uprooting in your life?

Today's blog is a personal Kairos moment from our founder, Pete Jones: Recently, I finished digging out part of our backyard so that we can install a DIY patio and fire pit. Normally this sort of thing wouldn’t take all that long but because this part of the yard is covered in thick ivy, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of roots to cut, dig and hack through 😬 ​I was feverishly chopping away a couple of weeks back and took a moment to pause and look at the progress. As my eyes took it all in, I couldn’t help but notice all of the roots that had been severed over the past few weeks. Some were tiny and some were...
