Toxic Religion: Living for God protects me from bad things.
The Jesus Way:
Following Jesus means he will be with me, bringing good out of every circumstance I face. He can be trusted.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Cultivate an eternal and global perspective of pain and suffering and mediate on the biblical truth that God can be trusted.
- What an incredible Sunday at Church at the Grove! I love Gabe and Austin’s leadership in our worship. Having them strip everything down without instruments or any other elements was unusual but God’s presence was thick! I am so thankful for them and thankful for Shelley and her gifts.
- This Sunday’s message was extraordinarily timely! I received a phone call yesterday morning letting me know that one of our Grovers, Jim Seawright, was tragically killed in an automobile accident early Sunday morning. Jim was 35 years old and had 3 children. My heart hurts so for his family.
- The memorial for Jim Seawright will be Wednesday April 21. Visitation is 3pm with the memorial service at 4pm at Tim Stewart Funeral home on Tom Brewer Road in Loganville.
- I would love for as many Church at the Grove people as possible to come and support Jim’s family. Misty, Zach, Logan and Gavin need all the love we can give them right now.
I hope to see you soon.
