As you can see, our Pastor is a long time Chicago Cubs fan.
But even if you’re not, we hope you’ll take a moment to listen to what he has to say anyway.

Why I love the Old Testament

There was a time early in my relationship with Jesus where I thought the Old Testament was really boring. Perhaps that is, like many of you I suspect, I started reading my Bible at the beginning and by the time I got to Leviticus and Numbers, I got bogged down and decided I’d just skip forward to the New Testament. But fortunately, once I was in seminary I had a professor who obviously loved the Old Testament and helped me to begin to understand its richness.


5 Reasons a “verse a day” might be hazardous to your spiritual health

I know that I haven’t written a new blog post in a while. Really no good excuses for that, but I suppose I got distracted by some vacation time and getting our church set up with our Faithlife groups. But something that I saw this morning prompted me to post today.


Staying connected

One of the great things about being a disciple of Jesus is that He doesn’t leave us to try and live out the life of a disciple on our own. He places each believer into His body, the church, for the purpose of growing to maturity and to help others in that process.
For a while now, we’ve been looking for an online platform that will help us stay connected during the week, a place where we can share prayer requests, keep up do date on the latest news and just keep in touch. So we’re encouraging all who are part of our church family to join the Thornydale group on Faithlife. It’s actually a very simple process. Just
to go to that page. Once you’re there, click on the “Ask to Join” button. Then you will either need to Register or to Sign In
with your existing Faithlife or Logos account if you already have one. Once you do that one of our administrators will approve you as a member and you can begin to use all the features on the site. I’ll be sharing more on those features in the coming days. If you have questions, just reply to this blog post or email me.
