Immerse: Beginnings, Week 14
on May 4th, 2021
Deuteronomy. Duderonomy. Dootermonomy…. AHHH!I’m sure you’re like me – you’ve known about this oddly-named book of the Bible (and mis-pronounced it on more than one occasion), but haven’t read it much. Kind of like Leviticus and Numbers, right? Applicable to their times, not to ours! Wrong. I am convicted time and time again of how shamefully I have pushed aside some of the most foundational books...
Immerse: Beginnings, Week 13

As we come to the end of the book of Numbers, there are so many stories and topics we could potentially focus on. The Israelites are nearing the Promised Land (again), and the generation who experienced the Egyptian plagues and the parting of the Red Sea have all passed away. In fact, “Not one of them survived except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun” (Immerse: Beginnings, page 253).Thr...

Do you ever catch yourself looking back at your life pre-Jesus and wanting to go back to that life? You know your life now is not horrible, but there was just something easier back when you weren’t having to live a life different than the world; back when you didn’t have to live a life where you had to be Jesus to everyone. I think if we’re honest with ourselves, we have done that a time or two, a...

Have you ever wanted something so badly you’d be willing to do almost anything for it? Hold on…. Not anything illegal or illicit, but maybe to fulfill a dream or a long time desire you’ve had to own something or do something – like visit a particular location or own a particular car or have a particular type of home.For me, it was a MINI Cooper. I first fell in love with that tiny little car when ...
Immerse: Beginnings, Week 10
on April 6th, 2021
My family is from a very small town in southwest Virginia, just over the state line of eastern Tennessee. Everyone from that neck of the woods has a very distinct southern accent. Whenever I hear someone with a particular drawl, I immediately know they’re one of “my people.” Surprisingly though, most people I meet would never guess where I was born. I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but over ...
Immerse: Beginnings, Week 9
on March 30th, 2021
“I’ll just skip to the end.”How many times have you said this about something you’ve read, watched, or listened to? The very first time I read through Harry Potter, I made it only to the beginning of the 5th book, then had my sister tell me the ending because I didn’t want to read the rest of it. Sometimes, when I read a blog, I’ll just read through the main points, and ignore the rest of the cont...
