Abandoning the language of sin?

By Dave Henning / January 26, 2023

Gritting our teeth – doubling down?

By Dave Henning / January 15, 2023

“We . . . practice turning our attention to Jesus within us, learning to draw from his strength in the depth of our being.  It’s important that we remember that the strength that prevails is a strength given to us by God.  This is not something we conjure up.  It’s not gritting our teeth and […]
