Many of our towns are overflowing with churches. If you’ve ever tried to find a new church, you know how many options are typically available. You can choose based on denomination: Baptist, Presbyterian, Evangelical Free, Assembly of God, Foursquare, Brethren, Methodist…you name it. And many of these broad categories actually...

This is a simple thought, but today it’s striking me as important. Yesterday I went to the beach with my family after church. We packed up our beach gear, packed up our dinner, and headed out. We had an amazing afternoon with the girls—relaxing, playing in the waves, turning the...
