First Word – Love Lists

Lovely Lists Are you a list maker? I’m not, but my wife, Steph, and kids are. I asked my daughter why she likes lists, and her instant answer was “They help me plan, organize, and recall my goals.” Wow! That’s a good list right there. Maybe it’s why Steph makes sure I have one when […]

First Word – Found or Falling?

Found or Falling? It’s 2021, and I bet you are as ready to leave 2020 behind as I am. But a new year doesn’t mean a new world. The confused, chaotic forces unveiled last year are challenges that remain. Our theme for this year is “Faithful.” We ask, what does it mean to be faithful […]

Faithful Ambassadors

We are called to be ambassadors for Christ. We know that. But what might it mean in this season of COVID and change? Make no mistake, we are living in the end. If not The End, an end. Hinges in history — turning points — are tumultuous, but they are also generative. God brings new […]

A Message from GC President Loren Stacy

Dear Brothers and Sisters: The death of George Floyd at the hand of a Minneapolis, Minnesota policeman was brutal, unnecessary, and outrageous.
