Throwing your faith a lifeline

By Dave Henning / August 18, 2020

By Dave Henning / July 10, 2020

“When you loosen your grip on your plans and let the One who gave you your blue flame tell you what you’re supposed to do next, it will be scary at first.  Eventually. . . .  you’ll get better at recognizing the intangible elements of the decision-making process: your gut instinct will become more honed, […]

Grief and loss – walking with people

By Dave Henning / October 4, 2019

“In walking with people through grief and loss, I’ve recognized how . . . they’re desiring to connect, to be validated that their suffering or the injustice they are facing hasn’t somehow disqualified them from personhood.  They’re not even coming for answers — they just want to be reminded that God hasn’t forgotten them.”- Mitchel […]

By Dave Henning / June 21, 2019

“God often gives a faint vision of things before they ever come to be.  It’s not full form, more of a shadow, not focused or clear.  It doesn’t come with steps or money or sure things, but it does come with hope.  And hope is what keeps you going in the fog.”- Emily P. Freeman […]

Faith – rarely measured by earthly success

By Dave Henning / May 6, 2019

“Our faith is in God and the big picture that we won’t completely see this side of eternity.  It isn’t easily — or rarely at all — measured by earthly success, but it’s what keeps us aligned with the truth that sings out in our soul.”- Kyle Idleman “Abraham reasoned that God could even raise […]
