“My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death have fallen on me. Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me. I said, ‘Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest. I would flee far away and stay in the desert; I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm’” (Psalm 55:4-8).

The loss of a loved one is not something one gets over. Time does change the sha...

When I was young child, God put Africa in my heart.  I was sent to Zambia through the Peace Corps nine years ago.  When my contract of three years finished, God asked me to stay in the town of Mansa to help children and young girls.  I always knew we would plant a church here in Mansa Zambia at some point but I did not know it would happens this fast!   I work with Pastor Francis Mwansa who is a local pastor here in Mansa. He decided he wanted to...

Here is yet another story of God’s provision at Cascade View FMC in Sublimity this month, that simply cannot be overlooked. In Pastor Paul Starkey’s words.... “It all started with a baked potato!”

Jenna went to a local food truck to order a meal, the owner shared that an empty school in Portland was opening its doors (literally!) to non-profits who could remove and put to good use any of the remaining furniture and fixtures before the building was...
