    Having Fun While Engaging the Lost
    Dustin Speaks—August 26

    Kenyan voices rang over the parking lot, children jumped in massive bounce houses, and people ate food from several different cultures. There were tables set up with crafts, activities, and foods from Brazil, Ghana, Korea, China, Nigeria, and Mexico.

    Hearing Through the Noise
    Mike Yoder—August 25

    Technology is not the ultimate evil, in fact, it can be very helpful. But what we really need is time at the feet of Jesus. We need to regularly put down our connection to the world so that we can hear and feast on what God whispers to us about himself and ourselves.

    My Heart is Calloused
    David Nicodemus—August 22

    So often we want to look away and keep our guard up to stay safe inside the compound of our own dwelling places. But don’t look away. A life lived with a calloused heart is not a good life.

    Book Review: Crazy Busy
    Mike Yoder—August 19

    Busyness. No matter how much time we have, it’s never enough. And even if it were, we’d struggle to find the focus to be busy about the right things.

    This Saturday: Go International!
    Dustin Speaks—August 15

    Every Saturday morning when our daughter wakes up we get the same questions: “What are we doing today? Do we have something fun to do? Where are we going this morning?” This Saturday will be different though!

    Identity Crisis
    David Nicodemus—August 12

    We’ve each been given a true identity, one that we cannot change but one that too many people are running from. It’s an identity that needs to be embraced and accepted in order to find true satisfaction.

    Hospitality in Action
    Dan Green—August 10

    Being hospitable is that God-ordained characteristic that indicates we are different in a very positive way. As they receive our kindness, it is natural to share about the One who has given us the motivation to be kind—the One who is our true satisfaction.

    Partner of Your Heart
    Guest Author—August 8

    Just as the gold does not naturally rid itself of impurity—and in fact exists comfortably in its natural environment bonded to the impurities—so we also will not naturally be able to rid ourselves of the impurities that exist comfortably in our hearts.

    Build Some Momentum
    Matt Vosberg—August 5

    There’s something really special about taking some time away from the normal routine of life and opening our hearts to what God wants to say to us. Conferences, retreats, and ministry trips like this are opportune times for students to hear God’s voice in a fresh way.

    King Death, Undefeated: Musings on Death
    Danny Nathan—August 3

    This poem is written largely from the perspective of one who does not know the hope beyond death that is offered in Christ. This under-the-sun perspective attempts to be honest about what life is like without the knowledge that Jesus is the resurrection and the life.
