What Will Become of the Church

What Will Become of the Church

There was a time in Ancient Israel when the Israelites were worshipping the god Molech. He was one of many pagan gods they were worshipping, but he was distinct in his sacrificial requirements. Molech demanded child sacrifice. The idols of Molech were hollow iron statues with outstretched arms. A fire would be built within the base of the idol, making the entire statue red hot. Then children would be placed in the fiery arms of Molech, sacrificed to grant the desires and prosperity of their parents.

It was this abhorrent practice...

We Long to Be Seen

We Long to Be Seen

Jesus sees you. He really sees you. He sees everything about you. Jesus sees you and loves you. And, because he sees you and loves you, you can live securely.

And that is the best good news ever.

The world is moving at an unprecedented pace (even, or especially, during COVID). More news, more social media, more email, more texts, more…more…more of everything – and more than we can handle.

Unseen.

And this is not the way Jesus intended it to...

The UVA men’s team had won the national championship in 1989, 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1994—five out of six years. Romesh walked on in 1995, so he was good. Like, really good.

For his thirtieth birthday, Romesh and I traveled to England, and his incredible wife, Lawson, sent us...

The Miracle of Technology

The Miracle of Technology

When you look at the history of, say, the world, one of the most important instigators to transformation has been the way we communicate. It began with spoken words, and we all know how the game of telephone goes. The thing is, when that was the only way you could get the message across, you became good at it. Really good.
