The Umbrella of Abiding

By Linnette Bachman Recently, I was sitting in meetings where we were discussing future strategic goals for our work. During a discussion on ‘abiding’ staff began asking, “So, to achieve our goal of abiding, are we going to have staff go through a Bible study on abiding?

Rooted in Hope During Transition

I wish I could say that my reaction was a fluke, and that generally, I’ve figured out how to manage change gracefully. Unfortunately, … Continue reading Rooted in Hope During Transition
