Broken in the House of Healing

From Rob Stearns… Sometimes I think we put such an emphasis on making sure that our “church” looks perfect. That we should all put on a smile and present to the world a united front (farce?) that everyone of us and everything in our lives, everyday, is oh so pretty and perfect. I’m fortunate to […]

This is the Stitt family. They are heading to Moldova in less than two weeks to come alongside of the local churches there in putting an end to human trafficking. There are two areas that will take most of their time and efforts. 1. Home of Hope – This is a home for young women […]

The Love of God

A group of men from my church along with some other guys have formed a Men’s Book Club. Before you laugh, let me assure you this is a very manly book club. If you would have told me in High School that when I was 34 years old I would be a part of a […]

Is Not For Now

from Rob Stearns I wrote this poem over a couple days. I started out writing it on one day, had to put it down, got distracted, forgot about it, then remembered, then continued. I hope it makes sense. The reason for this poem is my friend Jamie’s sister, Penny. She has cancer. A young woman, […]

I just left the hospital. My friends Dan & Heather just had their first child, Bjorn Daniel, yesterday evening. Holding a newborn baby never gets old for me. Bjorn wasn’t even 24 hours old yet and I was holding him and looking at his big old cheeks and giant sized baby hands. Babies are a […]
