The Blessing of Marriage

The Daniells family circus pulled back into town last night from a twelve-day road trip to a family reunion centered around my Grandmother’s 90th birthday in Long Beach, California. Altogether, we spent roughly forty hours in “Brian” (our affectionately named Ford Expedition that used to belong to the Milliner family), logging more than 2500 road miles. […]

We celebrated the beginning of Summer with a wonderful barbecue and a lot of fun and fellowship between the students. It’s been a really good year. We took some time at the beginning of the school year going through a “Tough Questions” series that was really thought provoking, and I believe helpful for the students. […]

Last night was the first of two weeks where the youth group is focusing on lust, relationships, and dating. We spent some time worshiping the Lord, and then split up into a guys and gals group. In both groups, we defined lust (albeit in different ways) as a sexual desire that dishonors its object and […]

A Call To Co-op-erate

One of my favorite Leadership Journal cartoons depicts a weary pastor slumped down in his chair, fast asleep. A bubble above his head shows his dream: Church members are arguing, “No, it’s my turn to teach Sunday School! You already had your turn.” I love that dream. So do Beth and Jillian, the ones responsible for organizing our […]

Last night we started by spending some good time in review with one and other about what we had been learning in the book of Ephesians. We watched the Bible Project video, which gave us a good overview, then split into groups to summarize each chapter of the book. It was a good way to […]
