Whether it was the fact that your childhood was full of broken moments or your more recent circumstances have been full pain and sadness, most of us, if not all, have experienced trials and tribulations. These trials can make us feel broken and wearied.At times, our brokenness can make us feel isolated and far from God. However, the opposite is true. Psalm 34:18 it says, "...

When the Answer is No

M2y Post

Did you ever ask for something from your parents when you were younger and they said no?

Why can't I have another piece of cake? The first piece was delicious so why can't I hav...

If I were to guess, fasting is probably something you do not do often.

At Veritas, we have a phrase that we use every Sunday. We call Sunday, "Game Day!" I walk around fist bumping people. We shout it out around the room to one another. It's a part of our culture here. Sunday is GAME DAY! I miss being in person on Game Day! And if Sunday is GAME DAY, then Easter Sunday is THE SUPER BOWL.This is the first time that I can remember churches acr...

What is Maundy Thursday?

My Post-6

As we observe Holy Week, we pause and reflect on a series of events that radically altered the course of history and changed many of our lives forever. If you grew up in a church tradition that followed the liturgical calendar, all of the events and language surrounding Holy Week might be familiar. However, there are many traditions that don't typically place much emphasis...
