As the 2019 Lenten/Easter season begins, we are excited to announce a new ministry – and a new look – for this blog.
It’s called IGW3 – which as you can see above stands for…
- In God’s Word
- In God’s Will
- In God’s Work
We live in complicated and confusing times. We believe that the best way we can navigate those times is by the study of and applying of the Bible’s timeless teachings to our lives. In attempting to do this in the most faithful way we hope to apply this principle,
“In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.”
We pray that by God’s grace we will explore the scriptures daily and find there the truth and grace we need, as Christ said, to “live life to the full.”
To that end, I will be posting daily posts reflecting on the scriptures, using a simple daily reading plan like many found online these days. If you find you can’t tune in each and every day, or get behind in reading each day’s passage, don’t worry – and most of all – don’t give up! Just join us here if and when you can.
May God richly bless you as we begin this new journey together.
