Lent Day 34 Reflection

The reflection for Day 34 comes from Brad Lail. Dr. Lail is a devoted husband and father, an accounting professor at Baylor University, a volunteer in a number of ministry areas, and a new Elder for Harris Creek. It is hard in my life to discuss what true liberation means in an earthly context. The idea of rejoicing in freedom from any bondage I have placed myself under seems so minor ...

Lent Day 28 Reflection

Today’s reflection comes from Elizabeth Oates—a wife, mother, author, speaker, and for Harris Creek, a mentor for young, newlywed couples. For more samples of Elizabeth’s writing, please check out her blog.   Desmond Tutu once said, “You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.” Yet for many people, family does not feel like a gift at all. Sometimes family feels more like a ...

Lent Day 26 Reflection

Blaise Pascal[1] is famous for once saying, “I have discovered that all the unhappiness of men arises from one single fact, that they cannot stay quietly in their own chamber. A man who has enough to live on, if he knew how to stay with pleasure at home, would not leave it to go to sea or to besiege a town.”[2] The focus of our Lenten readings this week is ...

This particular family is working in a region known as the Horn of Africa and is making headway with an unreached, unengaged people group. After reading today’s reflection about the courage to contend for righteousness, please pray for the Gospel to be made known in ...

"But remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth." // Deuteronomy 8.18Today we are praying for "seeking God for the business people".

How fitting!As Joel and ...
