God is Stronger

Posted by Tim McConnell on

William Shakespeare filled his plays with great spiritual conversations. Many of his characters represent different convictions or philosophies of life. In Hamlet, the character Horatio is a committed naturalistic materialist. He never says those words, but he is a man convinced that the only...

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...

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...

Oh, The Places We're Going

Posted by Tim McConnell on

There should be no secret. Our current series was inspired a little bit by the famous Dr. Seuss book that is read every year around this time in thousands of high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, colleges…well, everywhere: Oh the Places You’ll Go,“Congratulations!...

Partnering for Human Flourishing

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Happy Mother’s Day! I’m sorry I missed it. I was out of town last week because I had the honor of traveling with Compassion International to Peru on a tour hosted by President and CEO Jimmy Mellado. First Pres has enjoyed a long partnership with Compassion, a ministry of poverty...
