Are You Winning?

The Lovable Losers It is playoff baseball time again. My Royals didn’t make the postseason, but I’m enjoying following the teams still in it. The Chicago Cubs clinched the last spot to face the Cleveland Indians. The Cubs won the series handily against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but early on it was not so sure. […]

Faith is both ancient and new by Andy Bondurant

Something Ancient | Something New

Stand by the roads, and look,     and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it,     and find rest for your souls.  – Jeremiah 6:16 Something ancient It’s human nature to want the new thing.

So you seek revenge? This weekend, I saw the remake of the Western classic, The Magnificent Seven. I won’t bore you with the details of the movie. You can find them all over the internet.

God is ancient and I choose Ancient by AndyBondurant

I Choose the Ancient.

New Versus Ancient Now all the Athenians and the foreigners who lived there would spend their time in nothing except telling or hearing something new.  -Acts 17:21 God isn’t just old. He is before time. More than that, God exists out of time. He isn’t a new idea. God has always been. God is ancient. Too […]

Grace | Unforced Rhythms

Grace is an Unforced Rhythm Sometimes I try way too hard. Specifically I refer to connecting with God. I’m forced. I’m rigid. I’m unnatural in my approach to Him. I make rules and regulations for myself. Read this much. Pray that long. Say these words. Think those thoughts. It’s not just me. It’s human nature […]
