Life Together

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of my heroes of the faith. Born into a thriving Germany at the height of its cultural, intellectual and economic influence, Bonhoeffer and his family watched their nation pitched into warfare and decline during World War I. Then they watched in terror as the country...

Throw It Out

Posted by Tim McConnell on

I like spring cleaning. I like throwing stuff out or, better, giving it away. Sometimes I tell the staff here it’s time to find five things to toss out. There’s never any shortage of church detritus lying around! Throw it out. My church in Georgia had a slight sewage challenge. The...

Living Stones

Posted by Tim McConnell on

I do love Ephesians! Don’t you? This past Sunday we had the powerful image of the Church as a building, a temple, being built by God. The apostles and prophets are foundation stones. We are wall stones. Jesus Himself is the cornerstone; that means we all lean on Him. We can’t stand...

Summer is here and First Pres Family Ministries is thick with opportunities for children, students and families to grow in their faith in Jesus. I just returned from a trip to the Dominican Republic with a bunch of high schoolers and recent graduates. It was a front-lines experience with...

Don't Go It Alone

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Are you trying to go it alone? We all tend toward isolation a little bit. Maybe you are an introvert. You go to the pool, but you always have a book in front of your nose! Maybe you walk around the pool deck talking to everyone you meet, but you would never let them know what is really going on...

Heading Out

Posted by Tim McConnell on

There are a lot of people heading out, I have noticed. Some are heading out on vacation now that school is finished. I know two different families in our church who are heading out for long trips with Navigators to encourage and strengthen that mission around the world. Another friend left...
