“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (ESV) I have always struggled with this idea of “praying without ceasing” that Paul speaks about here and it seems...

Faithful Doubt

Posted by Montie Klecker on

Another Year...So Much Learned

Posted by Brooks Wachs on

Every year something happens to every person here on earth. We get a year older. The day of our birthday that we celebrate as a kid and try to forget as an adult. For me I just turned 31 years old, which is crazy to think. First off, I came to the realization that not much special happens when...
