I’ve been reading my Bible this year with one particular theme in mind:  getting to know the Holy Spirit.  His character, his work and ministry in the earth and in the heart of man, his gifts, and his guidance of the church are more than just interesting to discover in the pages of Scripture; they are compelling and challenging to me, creating even…

  We’ve moved!  I posted in January that Grace Church Spokane was close to securing a more permanent space.  As of February 1 we accepted New Vision Church’s invitation to share space with them and to see what we can do together as grace-filled churches committed to serving the nations in Spokane.  We were privileged to join with New Vision last…

It's Time To Run

It’s a new year and with it comes new adventure in God! He is always on the move and always building His church, but it seems that we are often listening more closely at times like this. New adventure is definitely upon our Grace Church Spokane family this year, and I believe God is telling us "It's time to run" as we step forward in faith in 2015!…

It's almost impossible to miss the crazy political and social news around the world these days.   Rumor of military conflict is almost routine, and religious upheaval is in the headlines.   In the USA, the fires of racial tension have been freshly fanned into flame, and man's brutality toward his fellow man abounds.  This morning, after catching up…

The Sons Are Free

May 01, 2014

"What do you think, Simon?" said Jesus.  "From whom do the kings of earth take tolls or taxes?  From their sons or from others?" Peter answered briefly, "From others." Jesus' responded almost as briefly, and yet with the depth of meaning so characteristic of his words, "Then the sons are free." The sons are free, declares Jesus.  They owe no deb…

Okay, I just have to say I loved watching the Super Bowl last night!  Being a church planter in the State of Washington, watching the domination by the Seattle Seahawks over the Denver Broncos was simply a beautiful thing.  It was a scene after the game that stirred me the most though:  thousands of Broncos fans and Seahawks fans jammed together, w…

The King's Mission

This was really encouraging to me this morning as I was reading/journaling.  I'm posting it exactly as I wrote it in my journal entry. “Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, ‘Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins sh…

All According To Plan

Jan 20, 2014

This weekend didn't go exactly according to plan for our church plant here in Spokane.  It's January in the Inland Northwest, which means it's cold, so what a perfect time for the heating unit in our rented building to die!  The repairs were scheduled to happen on Tuesday the 21st, which, if you do the math, doesn't increase the temperature by even…

I'll never forget senile Aunt Bethany's prayer in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.  She's asked to pray "The B-l-e-s-s-i-n-g" by her excellent-toupee-wearing husband, and she begins with, "I pledge allegiance to the flag..."  I laugh every time.  Yep, every time!  The family request to "bless" the food goes wrong just like everything else the…

Do you ever wonder what the kingdom of God is like?  Jesus talked about it all the time, so I had a really great thought (also very deep and very intellectual, so I hope you are impressed).  Are you ready for this?  Here it comes... Why not just ask Jesus what the kingdom of God looks like?  "Jesus, could you please describe for the audience what …
