Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
Have you ever had that lost feeling, the feeling of drifting along lost at sea disconnected from any kind of great community? Sometimes I feel like I am wandering, figuring this life out on my own. There are signposts for sure, books I read or teachers I learn from, but when I put the book down or finish the podcast I am left alone once again.

Intentional discipleship is surrendering to the Father's will and walking in Jesus' presence.
So how do we live the life of an intentional disciple? How do we stay connected to Jesus when he is not bodily present with us like he was with his first disciples? The answer is the spiritual discipline, or practices. If you read last week’s…Continue

They take him to games and are starting to get him on the ice. My…Continue
