10 May: For Crying Out Loud!

On April 22, 2020 at 5:50pm, an all-familiar sound filled the room I was in as my daughter, Jubilee Grace Hope, used the fully-functional lungs that God had given her to cry out.

09 Dec: Praise Completes Our Joy

While preparing for this Sunday’s message on JOY: I was reminded of Lewis’ quote on the subject of Worship and Joy.

“I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment: it is its appointed consummation. It is not out of compliment that lovers keep on telling one another how beautiful they are; the delight is incomplete till it is expressed.
