By Dave Henning / September 30, 2021

“The ultimate measure of friends is where they stand in times of challenge and controversy.  That being the case, apart from adversity of some kind, we would never know who our faithful friends really are.  In the same way, we will never know in a personal way the faithfulness of Christ apart from adversity.  Without […]

By Dave Henning / October 5, 2020

“I think there is a little Saul in each of us.  Part of us wants God to defeat the enemy while we sit under a pomegranate tree on the outskirts of Gibeah.  We want God to do something for us without having to do anything for God.  But if we don’t do anything, nothing will […]

Left alone in our thoughts – a dangerous place

By Dave Henning / April 24, 2020

A God-created capacity to rethink

By Dave Henning / April 21, 2019

“I never want to become a closed system.  I never want to feel like I have it all figured out. . . .  to quit trying new things.  Why?  Because God didn’t just create us with the capacity to think.  He created us with the capacity to rethink.”- Mark Batterson As Mark Batterson continues Chapter […]
