Enter the Slave Garden

Living Hope Community Church meets at Ironwood Elementary School, and to enter, you must pass through a small gated courtyard before you reach the doors to the worship space. Every Sunday we are able to come to our church space, pass through the gates, enter through the door, and participate in the worship service. There... Continue Reading →

What happened to Hospitality?

Perhaps this has always been the case, and I just missed it by years of attending the same church, but I can't help to feel that the church has all but abandoned the concept of hospitality. A few years ago I went through a season of repeated transition: I moved to a new city, completed... Continue Reading →

Letting Go of Holding On

I've been all but paralyzed all day. There is plenty to do, and I've been so stuck that by this time I am not confident that I can pull off the few pressing things that really need to be done right away. The thing is, that I've been putting more hope than I've realized into... Continue Reading →

Since I’ve left Boise

It has decals of shields and badges, and is meant to look official and intimidating, but the effect somehow isn't.-the best way to park in... Continue Reading →
