The Gift of Disruptionby Jason Caywood What strange circumstances have been thrust upon us these recent days. Much has been said about the impact of the spread of the covid-19 virus, from concerns about economic impact, people losing their jobs, concerns for public health and the impeding of civil and constitutional rights by officials in government. Many more words, both useful and useless, will pour forth in the coming months and years. I have been pondering these questions: What is…

RW Blog – April 2020

Facebook has had it’s pros and cons… …but one thing is for sure…I’m thankful for the ability to keep in contact with all those who I have had the privilege to cross paths with and come to know. Some of you are close friends and others are acquaintances – nevertheless as I scroll down my “Friends” list I have nothing but love and fond memories. Sometimes I feel loneliness because I can’t see you more often. When there is love in…

“Change!” by Carol Wagstaff Groen and Phillip Lee

Change! By Carol Wagstaff Groen and Phillip Lee The Oxford American Dictionary defines change as to make or become different; to pass from one form or phase into another. Certainly, for any individual the greatest change is to become a Christian and know that your destination has been changed from hell to heaven; to become born-again. While Scripture and an abundance of secular literature provide evidence that homosexuality, though deeply ingrained and even habitually practiced, can be overcome both as…

RW Blog – March 2020

“I gave up too soon.” A few years ago I was helping out with our church’s ‘feed the homeless’ outreach. When all the meals had been served a lady walked up and asked for a second helping of food. A minute before the chef took that tray away that had some of the food on it. She looked and said, ‘Oh well’, then passed by. A few minutes later the chef returned with a bit more food. I called out…

Addiction as a Negative Mirror of the Law by Jason Caywood              Life experience can be and should be for us a potent tool in God’s hands. That is, if one is willing to open one’s will to listen to wisdom and discretion. The key is always our willingness to listen and thus heed the truth we know. Yet the Lord never ceases to bear witness to the truth and to lovingly guide those willing to heed him. In my experience…

Restoring Wholeness Blog December 2019 – by Judi Thompson

How many times have you been on social media and have read something “NEW” and been either amazed or upset by this new-found information?  We are learning to not believe everything we read or hear. We can be gullible at times especially if it’s something we like or want. We need to do our own research and fact check to find out the source of the information. This reminds me of our spiritual food. How many times do we read…

RW Blog November 2019 – Brett Martin

What voices am I listening to?  Have you ever asked yourself that question?  I think of myself as being a positive person.  I want to believe the best about myself and others. When I look at challenging or difficult situations in a person’s life, for the most part, faith fills my heart and mind of what God can do. This is usually the case when my eyes and heart are centered on God.  (John 15)    I can see with His…

In the middle of the muddle

Was thinking this morning about the words “muddle / wallow” and their action words “muddling / wallowing”.The dictionary definition is:  mud·dle – verb: muddling  bring into a disordered or confusing state. synonyms: confuse, mix up, jumble (up), disarrange, disorganize, disorder, disturb, mess up”you’ve muddled things up” confuse (a person or their thoughts). synonyms: bewilder, confuse, bemuse, perplex, puzzle, baffle, mystify “she became muddled”  busy oneself in a confused and ineffective way. God reminded me when Paul and Silas were thrown into prison.  (Acts 16:16-40)   Now I’m far from being a “Paul” but I sure know the feeling when it…
