Today, the Covington/Maple Valley Reporter is talking about Mission Sunday (May 5th, 2013)! That's pretty cool! Let's continue to be a light to those around us and spread the word about Mission Sunday. We would love to share the great things we are doing around the world with the community.

We want to thank everyone who came and celebrated Easter with us this weekend! We wanted to fill you in and let you know all the amazing things that happened this Sunday. Here are some of the highlights:
Do marriage vows seem to mean as much today as they used to? If you've heard anything about the increase in divorce rates, you may wonder.
Bill & Glad are ignoring the trends. More than ever the vows they made 50 years ago are being tested. In sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, the promise they are keeping is a true example of...

I wonder if Jesus had in mind the role that social media tools like Facebook and Twitter would have to play when he told his followers to go into all the world and make disciples?
Last Sunday I met a family at my church who were attending for the very first time. I asked how they first heard about our church and ...

Daily time with God is critical to the Christian life.

The election is over and the other side won. Now what?
This has been a contentious election cycle. Not as contentious as the duels fought over politics in the early 1800s or the beating that Representative Preston Brooks gave Senator Charles Sumner in the Senate chamber in 1856, but it hasn't been an easy year. I'm...

There was a time when if someone had a problem with you or something you did, they told you about it and you both dealt with whatever it was like adults. Then, as society progressed, people stopped being so blunt with each other and preferred the method of talking behind your back and having the problem eventually get back to you ...
In his book Fill These Hearts, Christopher West describes a surprising and simple discovery that changed his marriage:
Years ago [my wife] and I were out to dinner and she observed that something was different about our marriage in recent years, something good. She asked me if I had any insight into what it was. After reflecting a bit I said ...

We’re producing a generation of spiritual dwarfs. Many in the church are going through the motions, but their faith lacks vibrancy, exuberance, life and contagion.
They may be saying the right stuff. Doing the right stuff. But missing the main thing.
Yesterday I met a man who gets it. He introduced me to an empty ...
If you're sleeping with the person you're dating, you're telling each other two things. First, you're telling each other that your relationship with God is not your primary commitment. Second, you're telling each other that you are the kind of person that will sleep with someone you're not married to. Do you think that repeating vows to each other ...

Are you truly being the church or just going through the motions?
When my family lived in North Carolina, we had friends who attended the local Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Apparently some in their congregation did not like referring to it as a "Church," so our friends would refer to it as "Church-Like Place...

All indications are that this presidential race will be one of the most fiercely fought in a long time. Passions are running VERY high on both sides and there are no shortage of opinions. One of the great things about this country is we still enjoy the right of free speech. In that vein, I know that many of you will continue to exercise that right ...
