Come, Holy Ghost

Oh dear, I’m afraid this is my second re-post in one week. But I’ve decided to have grace with myself because this week has been a little less tidy than others. Last night, after a wonderful week in Amarillo with my family, I flew home with the boys and got in late. We are tired [Read More…]

All Saints Day

Today we celebrate All Saints Day. We ride in the car to our new church, a people we’re still working our way into and around. We’re new to them, them to us.

Spirit of God, Descend Upon My Heart

I’ve only learned of “Come, Holy Ghost” since we began worshiping at City Church, but I can never get enough of [Read More…]
