“Why in the world would you preach Habakkuk?” This question came to mind as Nate Stevens, our Discipleship Director, and I were brainstorming series ideas late 2021. He mentioned Habakkuk and I initially wrinkled my nose at the proposition, which then drove me to conclude that we must preach through it. Habakkuk deals with an…Keep reading
My favorite parable from Jesus is the one about the persistent widow in Luke 18:1-8. Take thirty seconds (seriously, it’s only eight verses) and read it. In this parable, we see a widow knocking on the door of an unrighteous judge pleading for justice. The judge eventually gives in to what she asks for because…Keep reading
