We value both truth and love. But sometimes they seem in conflict. We can be tempted to privilege one over another or set aside one for the sake of the other. But the Bible calls us to live in truth and love. How do I do that? How do I live in truth and love?

Easter is a Christian holiday. It's not just a holiday to enjoy some time out in God's world, it's a holy day (special day) to enjoy the salvation and life Jesus won for us by dying and rising to life.
This Easter we've got an amazing Friday and Sunday planned with hot cross buns, live jazz, even a night out at The Soda Factory.
I would like would...Continue Reading

Join us this Easter as we look at the ultimate love and...Continue Reading
