This entry is from Ears to Hear entry by my colaborer, Christina Marandola: Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever.

Some might think that I am considering about the verse about treasures that says “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and […]

James 1:2   Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds … It would be easy for the early church to write off James as a whack job for such a comment.  But Peter, Paul and others tell us similar things and offer joy as the way to live in […]

Dear Debbie and Steve, I am taking this opportunity to let you know how grateful I am that you are in my life.  When we first started attending EvFree I had a really hard time connecting in the service and was really homesick for Christ Church in Illinois. Then we found the Encounter service and your […]

Ps 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. They say it takes 21 days to make a habit and then 6 weeks to make it stick.  While I have found that to be usually true, I really think it takes a commitment to a routine […]
