    A prophetic call to conduct God’s justice

    He was the prophet in overalls, a farmer who wore clodhoppers on his feet, calluses on his hands, and righteous anger in his heart. Amos was his name. He hailed from a dusty little town called Tekoa, about 6 miles southeast of Bethlehem, perched on the edge of the Judean badlands. Amos was a ...read more

    You’ve probably heard the phrase, “going down a rabbit trail.” Wild rabbits don’t like to saunter down Main Street; they prefer bolting down trails leading deep into the woods.

    God’s love for all people compels us into the deep--not stay in the dock

    It’s the Bible story that everybody knows, right? Even unchurched folks can tell you about Jonah. He was the guy swallowed by the whale. A story immortalized in children’s picture books everywhere. A fantastic, bizarre tale of a reluctant prophet, a huge fish, and a pagan city. Do you remember ...read more
