Jay Blogs – What’s It All For?

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, and I think we as Christians have it all messed up. I think we know we’re all often guilty of being influenced by what we refer to as “the world:” our broader, modern culture.  We assume its values as our own, often...

Jay Blogs – Getting Things Straight in the New Year

The other day, as I often do every January, I was reflecting on the new year. Like so many of us, I have my new years’ resolutions, too: things I’m going to do, ways I’m going to be a better version of me. My new year’s resolutions are so often doomed to failure,...

Jay Blogs – Good Receivers

It is more blessed to give than to receive, so they say. But, it is much easier to give. We like being givers, especially at Christmastime. Christmas helps us think of ourselves as we like to think—magnanimous, generous, powerful, having an abundance. If I’m the one...
