Quarantine

by Sean Stalvey

Quarantine. When you look at a word for long enough, that particular word begins to look foreign, or alien, to your brain. It’s an interesting phenomenon, but I believe the word quarantine is strange all on its own: it holds a certain weight with it, a level of stress and heaviness that you can’t really put your finger on but you know it’s there.

Returning Home

by Austin Moyers

In August of 2019, my wife and I packed up to move to St. Andrews, Scotland, so that I could pursue a master’s degree in Theology and the Arts from the University of St. Andrews. As we were packing and making our preparations to leave, it felt like a dream. It was still unbelievable that I had been accepted to the program, and it often felt crazy and reckless to have said yes.

A World Changed Forever

by Amber McWilliams

On March 27th, my world in the pharmacy would change forever.

First let me explain what I do for a living. My name is Amber McWilliams, I am 36 years old, and I am a Pharmacy Discharge Technician at a local hospital. My job is to deliver medications to the floors to the patients that are being discharged from the hospital.

Your Calling

by Rodney Thomas

In 587 B.C. the people of Israel were sent into exile, their Temple was destroyed, their capital city and their nation were in ruins. You have to wonder what the people were thinking? Were they thinking that the God of Israel was not as strong as the gods of Babylon? Were they thinking this is the end of the dream, the dream that Israel would be used by God to bless all the nations of the world?

Zoom!!!

by Karl Ihfe

A lot has changed in a couple of months. So much of “normal” life has either disappeared, never again to return, or has moved online. If you haven’t heard of the company Zoom by now, you’ve either been totally off the grid or you just aren’t paying attention. The vast majority of my face to face interactions have been replaced by screens, everything from staff meetings to prayer groups to grocery shopping.

Reaching the Unreached

by Elizabeth Harrison

We recently learned something interesting. Did you know that in the last twenty years there have been a recorded 69 movements of Muslim peoples coming to faith in Christ? A movement is defined as one thousand people or more from within a people group coming to faith in Jesus over the course of twenty years. (David Garrison, “A Wind in the House of Islam”)

The World Today

by Karl Ihfe

I was reminded this last week by my friend Chris Seidman, that almost half of our New Testament is made up of letters written by a man who was not allowed to go anywhere. Whether in prison or under house arrest, Paul spent much of his ministry locked up, unable to move freely and denied many of his rights as a Roman citizen.

Called to Discipleship

by Rodney Thomas

Have you ever wondered what it must have been like for Jesus to call a person into discipleship? Discipleship is not a word that we use much today, but in the time of Jesus this meant several things. It meant that Jesus was calling these people to become like Him.

What is Your Mission

by Karl Ihfe

What is your mission? Do you ever think about that?  I believe most people don’t.  And if I’m being honest, I’d have to lump myself in that category as well. I can get so focused on getting through my day that I don’t stop to consider the purpose and direction of it in the first place.

The God of More

by Matthew Benfield

I had a friend in college who was troubled by the high bar Jesus seemed to set. She pointed to Matthew 5:20: “For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds [perisseuse] that of the scribes and the Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

Made for More Through Friendspeak

by Betty Mullican

Broadway is well over a 100 years old. It has seen its highs and lows, but God has been faithful. For a long time I wished for some outreach work that our people could get passionate about to give us more meaning and purpose. Broadway is “made for more.”

What it Means to be Made for More

by Rodney Thomas

1 Peter 2:9 –  But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people who are God’s own possession. You have become this people so that you may speak of the wonderful acts of the one who called you out of darkness into his amazing light. CEB.

This past year was the 25th anniversary of the classic Disney movie entitled The Lion King. Released in June of 1994, it’s the story of a young lion, Simba, who is set to succeed his father Mufasa as King of the Pride Lands. In an evil plot twist,

Beyond the Pew with Walt McDonald

by Tracey Horne

There is one who walks unassumingly among us at Broadway. He moves along slowly, stooped from injuries received in military service, and gently greets those in his path with a kind smile.

Matrix Moments

by Karl Ihfe

Have you had a “Matrix” moment recently? Based on the 1999 sci-fi movie, it’s that moment when facing a decision you realize that no matter the choice you make, things will never be the same. Red pill, blue pill. I’ve faced several of these moments in 44 years.

It’s Time for Adventure

by Rodney Thomas
 
In 1980 I heard Charles Mickey, who was at that time the campus minister, preach and so I arranged to meet him in his office at 2406 Broadway, at what was called Campus Advance. I am not sure how long we talked, but as I was getting ready to leave I remember turning around as I was headed out the door and telling Charles that “It was Time.”
