Our Life, Our Calling | The Book of 1 Peter
by Andrew Clark on April 28th, 2022
We have a wrestling that we can't easily reconcile. We have an angst that we can't quite settle. We have an inconsistency that haunts us all, but we can't imagine how to walk more true and earnest that we currently do. On one hand, life is hard, painful, and robustly challenging. Whether you follow the Way of Jesus or not, struggle in this world is a certainty, an inevitable law from which we can'...  Read More

A Reminder & A Thank You
by Andrew Clark on April 17th, 2022

Dear Anthem: Ruby’s Open Letter
by Allen Coleman on February 2nd, 2022
Dear Anthem,I have only had the pleasure of attending this church since around May 2021.
