Stories, thoughts and reflections on the Bible from the WSFC Staff.

I’m writing this on Tuesday, November 3. Before things get all crazy up in here… Before many of us sit down to an evening of riveting cable news and pundit predications… Before the last polls close… Before our social networks blow up (oh, wait, that’s been happening already!)… Before the Presidency is determined for the…

Have you reached that point in 2020 where it seems like any forward movement in your life has been placed on hold?  Did you, like many, spend the first half of the year trying to make places that kept getting thwarted, only to throw your hands up and say “Maybe next year!” Can I tell…

One day Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me, ‘Take these people up to the Promised Land.’ But you haven’t told me whom you will send with me. You have told me, ‘I know you by name, and I look favorably on you.’ 13 If it is true that you look favorably…

I’m back again! It’s me Katie!  These last couple weeks have felt pretty dry for me. It’s felt harder to get into the Bible, or to pray – really it has felt hard to get close to God. You may feel the same way, the complete opposite, or somewhere in between and that is okay.…

This last weekend I taught a message called “What I’m Learning.” You can find it, along with all of our previous messages here. I felt like the Lord so significantly stirred my heart in the preparation and preaching of this message, that I wanted to both encourage you to view it (if you haven’t already),…

I don’t know about you, but I am weary. I choose the word weary only because it seems more of a reflection of the soul. There is not much in my life that has stayed the same – maybe you are in the same boat. Vacations cancelled, work flipped upside down, social/political unrest, pandemic, dreams…
