  • EVERYDAY IS SPIRITUAL

    By Jessica Ponder on Feb. 28, 2018

    Doing the Everyday, Every Day Some days my life seems to be oozing with repetition and simplicity. It feels like there’s nothing special or unique about most of what I do.

    Work Is Not a Curse Imagine paradise. Really. Take a moment imagine you are in paradise. What do you see? Maybe you picture a remote tropical island with water clearer than a swimming pool. You can almost feel your toes sinking into the white sands warmed by the sun. Or maybe you imagine yourself reclining in an ...
  • REMEMBERING THE GOSPEL

    By Doug Ponder on Jan. 24, 2018

    In his letter to the church at Corinth, Paul writes, “Now I want to remind you, brothers and sisters, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved. . .” (1 Cor. 15:1). Of course, you don’t need a reminder unless you...
