  • Back to The Future

    With future in front of us I begin anew with this blog.  The Delorean is ready to go and programmed.  We await the future with anxious anticipation. Read more

  • Laura’s Plant

    With all the ‘remembering’ of 9-11-01, I find that I grow weary and sometimes forget what it is I am supposed to remember.  All the getting older jokes aside…it really un-nerves me.  John Patton, in his book Pastoral Care in Context, talks about ‘re-membering’ people and events back into your life – not to make […] Read more

  • Impunity Does Not Imply Immunity

  • Bondage of the Will

A Place for Grace


Exchange the burdens of life for the new life offered by Jesus Christ through His church and active discipleship.

Jesus calls us to a Ministry of Reconciliation where disciples can mend relationships with one another, our environment and our God by making an ‘Xchange’  of old ways that divide us and burden us for a new way to live in Him.
