Magnify the Lord

Posted by Tim McConnell on

This Sunday, we continued our series Time for Joy, talking about the little moment in Luke 1 when Elizabeth and Mary met together. Elizabeth, empowered by the Holy Spirit, was able to claim faith in the unborn Jesus as “Lord.” Mary, moved by the Holy Spirit at work in her, sang...

Christmas Joy

Posted by Tim McConnell on

We kicked off our new series Time for Joy this week as we roll toward Christmas in this season of expectation we call Advent. Joy is our theme, and joy is our witness to the world. In Christ, we find joy. It is no coincidence that one of the great gifts we give our city each year is a concert...

I saw a story on the news the other night about Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD. It happens when the lack of sunshine and time spent outdoors starts to impact your emotions negatively. I first heard of this phenomenon when I was living in Chicago for college. Winters in Chicago, as I...

Gratitude is Good for You

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Gratitude is good for you, even if Thanksgiving dinner is not! The meal may put on a few extra pounds you didn’t need, but the exercise of thanksgiving is very healthy. Thanksgiving is not a Christian holiday. This is not a part of our "liturgical" church calendar. It is not a remembrance...

Drink Fluids

Posted by Tim McConnell on

It is cold and flu season. This is the time of year we keep telling each other to drink fluids. Or if you want to be more aggressive: “push fluids.” That sounds a little intense to me. But fluids are the answer. If you feel a cold coming on, drink fluids. If you have a cold, drink...

The Allure of Gentleness

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Today we exercise our right to vote. I hope you have taken time to pray and consider how to use your vote to raise up inspiring leaders.

Eugene Peterson passed away yesterday. If you don’t know this man, I hope you will learn a little bit about him this week and maybe pick up one of his books. Peterson served as Pastor of a Presbyterian church in Bel Air, Maryland, for almost thirty years. He is most well-known for his...

Hilarious Giving

Posted by Tim McConnell on

2 Corinthians 9:7 tells us “God loves a cheerful giver.” The Greek word for “cheerful” is hilaron, where we get our word “hilarious.” Are you ready for hilarious giving? What would need to happen in your life to become a hilarious giver, celebrating every...

Celebrating CityServe Weekend

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Years ago at one of our first gatherings for our fledgling movement called ECO, a pastor from Florida named Hope Lee got up in front of us and asked this question: “If your church disappeared, would your city notice?” I have to say that was a convicting moment for me. I had never...
