The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.
The Hole in the Gospel




The true gospel is a call to self-denial. It is not a call to self-fulfillment.
The Hole in the Gospel

We have shrunk Jesus to the size where He can save our souls but now don’t believe He can change the world.
The Hole in the Gospel

Prayer is not a magic formula to get the things we want from God. As humans we want instant gratification, but God wants intimate fellowship. Communicating with God in prayer is itself the prize, not the blessings we ask for.

Live your calling!

Live your calling!


I don’t always know where this life is going. I can’t see the end of the road, but here is the great part: Courage is not about knowing the path. It is about taking the first step. It is about Peter getting out of the boat, stepping out onto the water with complete faith that Jesus will not let him drown.

Functional Atheists

I don’t agree at all with what Ryan Bell is doing, I don’t believe the way to deal with doubt and opposition is to remove God from our lives. On the contrary, it should bring us closer to Him, spending time in in prayer and reading the scripture. Something he said though was an eye opener because it is true and has made me think about my own relationship with God.

"Many of us have for a long time been functional atheists. We may confess an intellectual assent to belief in a divine being and have a well thought out theology but very few of us live as though this God exists and is an active agent in the world."-Ryan Bell

Something to think about.
