Quotes for a Quiet Heart

In Psalm 131, David teaches us how to do something very foreign to our anxiety-prone hearts--to live with a quiet soul before God. We pray CJ's message (http://ow.ly/211tcC), along with these excellent quotes, help you experience greater contentment in God's good purposes for you. ...

Thinking About Small Groups

In the exciting early months of a church plant, the temptation is strong to generate a lot of activity - to identify leaders, to position people for ministry - to get people going! We’ve tried to resist this temptation, and as a result our focus has been quite simple: pray diligently, focus on the Sunday meeting (and especially the preaching of the Word), build rela...

The Mission Nearby

A few weeks ago, Jeff wrote about our enthusiastic commitment to gospel-mission (Keeping our Minds on the Mission Beyond).

Because of the gospel and the ascended Christ, this is a living demonstration in our midst that “To each one is given a manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.” (1 Cor. 12:7). God’s people are joyfu...

Update from South Africa

I’m writing from Johannesburg, South Africa, where CJ and I, along with Ligon Duncan, Kevin DeYoung, and Mark Dever, have been participating in the Rezolution Conference. It’s been a full and fruitful time, due in large part I’m sure to prayers from back home. Words can’t adequately express our gratefulness to you for praying....

Headed to South Africa

Yesterday, I boarded a plane from Louisville to Atlanta, where I boarded another plane that would take me the 17 hours to Johannesburg, South Africa. That's right. 17 hours. I have the privilege of leading the music for numerous conferences that are part of the Rezolution event. CJ will also be participating in, along with Ligon Duncan, Mark Dever, and Kevin DeYoung....

Keeping our Minds on the Mission Beyond

One of the most exciting parts of our elders meeting yesterday was a long conversation about missions. Although we are still in the early stages of this church plant, we don’t want our specific mission here to blind us to broader opportunities beyond. And we realize that our strategic location here in Louisville will afford us both opportunities and responsibilities...
