  • Grace Notes: Act like a Christian!

    On the way home from church last week I heard a radio spot.

    One guy tells another guy about his neighbor who's always hard on his son. They'll be out playing ball in the yard and the dad will constantly tell his son, "You'll never be a ball player if you keep messing up like that."

    Then the guy says, "Get this - on Sunday mornings the whole family gets in the car and goes to church."

    His friend asks, "How do you know they're going to church?"

  • CU web developer challenges the spectator church in his latest book

    Written from the experience and point of view of the author, an ordained minister and the father of an ordained minister, Goble shares his views on the spectator church and the religious activities that can keep its shepherds in a closed environment rather than out doing the work of communicating among the unchurched.

  • Grace Notes: Lessons from my knees

    As I was on my knees one Saturday afternoon, I had an epiphany.

    Lest you think I was on my knees praying, I wasn't, although Lord knows I should have been. And it wasn't so much an epiphany as it was a random thought.

    My husband and I were painting, he up on a ladder, me on my knees with a brush, painting the bottom of the walls along the edging.

    My random thought was that everything in life illustrates Bible truth, as someone once said. On that Saturday, with a paintbrush in my hand, I thought about how Jesus talked about counting the cost of following him.
