We’re still at the beginning of a new year. This page of Calvary’s history hasn’t yet been written. It is kind of like a blank page. But we’re starting. We’re beginning to listen for God’s gentle whisper, “What are you doing here, Calvary?” Read More »

Jacob’s family is a case study in dysfunction. Jealousy, conflict, infidelity, backstabbing, violence, and dishonesty infect the family, and all this is seen in just the first two chapters!

I frequently pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on ... Read More »

A Rediscovery Manasseh has the distinction of being the longest reigning and most evil of the kings of Judah, the southern kingdom of Israel. During his reign, he turned the people away from God and followed the pagan practices of the nations that God had driven from the land of promise. The temple was defiled, and fell into disrepair. It was probably during this time that the book of the law was hidden in the temple to protect it from the ... Read More »

Micah 6:8

He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
