God’s Design for the Church: Foundation

This past Sunday at Cornerstone we started a new sermon series on the Church. Throughout the series, we’ll be walking through Matthew 16 as we look at God’s plan for how the church is built, what it’s purpose is and ultimately how we are to look. Our series started by looking at the Foundation of the Church. In Matthew 16:13-18, Jesus takes his disciples to Caesarea Philippi and asks them a question. “Who do...

Cornerstone Easter Video Interview

I wanted to share one of the videos we showed on Easter. It’s an interview we did with one of our church members who had an incredible experience with God during a prayer time at our church. We put it together pretty quickly because we didn’t hear about it until just a few days before Easter. Ken did a great job. He just sat down and said everything he needed to say in one take. The music is the song “Quiet”...

When reading through those chapters, I was struck with the bloodiness of that system. It’s not that I didn’t...

Get Moving

There’s a scene in Saving Private Ryan that still moves me when I think about it. It’s the part where the translator, Upham, stands frozen in the stairwell as his friend is attacked and eventually killed. When watching it the first time, all I wanted to do was scream “Do something!” at the screen. It’s a powerful moment. I recently was reading in Exodus 14 about a time when the people of Israelite were...

New Year

I’ve noticed a bit of an attack on resolutions this year. Okay, “attack” may be a strong word, and it may not be widespread. However, I’ve come across several blogs that expressed some negative sentiment towards the idea. I’m not sure where this is coming from, but on one of the posts I read, the author expressed her disdain for resolutions. To her, they were never kept, because they were too radical....
