An Abiding Resolution

‘Tis the season for resolution guilt – and it comes from all sides.   The “success” cult insists you make passionate, impressive, status-quo busting declarations about how you’re gonna make your mark this year.   Those who seem (or at least claim) to have it altogether will gladly invite you to write your name atop their checklist of disciplines and to-do’s that will make […]

Shot to the Heart: Jesus, Guns, and the Kingdom of God

Boise Churches – City Church

Finding a church home can be stressful. But it doesn’t have to be. The key is to identify the core values you are looking for in a church, then find a church that shares your core values.
