“Being perfect God, he became perfect man, and accomplished the newest of all new things, the only new thing under the sun.”

John of Damascus Quote

I believe our greatest priority as Christian parents is to gradually transfer our children’s dependence away from us until it rests solely on God.

Craig Groeschel Quote

We must continually attempt to view technology through the lens of the story of God and his people, with the resurrected Christ at beginning, middle, and end of that story.

John Dyer from his book From the Garden to the City

John Dyer Quote

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends, and spirit – and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back.

But the other four balls – family, health, friends, and spirit are made of glass.

If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.”

- Brian Dyson (former CEO of Coca-Cola)

Merry Christmas Everyone

We hope that you have a very merry and blessed Christmas that is full of joy, love, hot chocolate, and God’s grace!

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
