Ash Wednesday: From Dust Unto Dust

February 26, 2020

A strange little holiday is coming up, and if you haven’t celebrated it before, should you and how would you?

Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the earth. Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life, through Jesus Christ our Savior.

God promised that, where two or three are gathered together in his name, his Spirit would be with us. We would love to gather together with you.

From World Challenge’s very beginning, many of you saw us as a part of your church community. You partnered with us through giving and following the sermons, but we wanted to reach out to you in a more personal way. That’s how our Constituent Care department was created.

Personality Tests: Searching for Ourselves and Our Maker

Are personality tests a God-honoring way to learn more about ourselves or do their faults mean that we should refrain from using them?

The Enneagram seems to be the current personality test rage. I had a few people ask me what my “type and wing” were, to which I could only blink like an owl abruptly yanked into the daylight.

A wing? I am of the homo sapien persuasion; we don’t have wings.

Choose Your Friends Wisely

Become the kind of person who has great relationships isn’t an easy path, but we’ve been called to do it by our Lord and Savior.

Near the end of Frodo’s journey with the ring, he and Sam stop on a mountainside. Both are already exhausted from their trek into Mordor, and yet so much of the road is still before them.
