Tomorrow is my birthday. Yes, I am saying this so that I can be wished Happy Birthday from many of you, but also, it is integral to the story I’m about to tell. Normally, and in fact for the past seven years, I’ve worked on my birthday. Either I was on a middle school...

Juneteenth Service of Remembrance
Posted by TC Anderson on

Hello all,  I’ve been so focused on my at home mission trips and this sermon for Juneteenth that I totally forgot to do a devotion for today.  So, in lieu of that I would like to encourage you to attend or tune in to our Juneteenth Service of Remembrance tonight at 7pm.  I...

Listening for God's Word
Posted by TC Anderson on

These past few months have been stressful, and it's important to center ourselves. So today, I'm going to be inviting you to do lectio divina. This can be done alone or with a few people, so do it as you see fit. Here's how it will work. Read: Slowly read the piece of Scripture given and...

Challenge
Posted by TC Anderson on

This week I challenge you.  This week I challenge you to allow words and others experiences to disrupt your perception of the world.   This week I challenge you to listen to the Word of God and ask, “What is this truly saying?”  This week I challenge you to...

Surrounded

For one week today, I will have been in my home without my wife. Now, ok, that sounds a little more serious than it is. She is in Alabama with her mother and is spending two weeks with her. I am halfway through my solo adventure of living alone in a time of pandemic. I have had...

What to Do
Posted by TC Anderson on

I’m tired. I bet you are too. I know my wife is, I know my friends are, I know every frontline worker is. There are times throughout this pandemic that I have said or heard someone else say, “I wish this had never happened,” or “I wish we could just go back...

Pull

Warning. I’m angry and I’m not hiding it. I know that as pastors, we are to be seen as controlled, mellow, and able to harness our emotions, but I’m having a turn over the tables and make a whip moment. Just thought I’d let you all know up front. Last...

Be Contagious
Posted by TC Anderson on

Ellen and I have been watching ESPN’s The Last Dance about the ‘97/’98 Bulls team and all the storyline surrounding them.  It is an amazing show and we can’t wait to watch it every Monday (it comes out on Sunday evenings, but by then we’re getting ready for...

Comfort in Chaos
Posted by TC Anderson on

This devo was particularly difficult for me to write because I’m preaching this Sunday (plug, plug, plug… come check it out) and thus that message has been firmly on my mind.  So, trying to switch gears and write a devotional with a different message is difficult, but luckily...

Sing
Posted by TC Anderson on

As I sat down to write this devotional today I came to a realization. I’m running low on ideas. Not just for these devotionals (although some of you might say, “yeah, I can tell”), but also for my day-to-day life. I’ll answer emails, reach out to my youth, plan our next...
