God is on the Move...Again

Last Sunday you were introduced to Mark and Cate Walz. Mark and his family, three kids and one on the way, moved to Dallas last week from Ohio. We have been in conversation with him for the past two years about the possibility of moving to Dallas and planting a church...Read More

The Holy Spirit and Evangelism

In a matter of days he was completely transformed. Peter, the one who denied Jesus, suddenly addresses the multitude and three thousand people receive the gospel. There is a pattern in Acts that emerges - charismatic experience of the Holy Spirit leads to bold evangelistic witness...Read More

From Pain to Peace

Our scars tell stories - stories about what we have experienced, endured and even suffered. In John 20:19 we read that though Jesus suddenly came and stood among the disciples - they did not “see” him until He showed them His scars...Read More

The Art of a Good Question

When I was a trial lawyer, one of the skills that had to be learned was asking good questions. Penetrating questions. Open ended questions. However, if I ask questions on cross-examination of a witness on the stand, I better know for sure what the answer is going to be...Read More

Silent Saturday

A Legacy of Testimony

The Gospel of John has provided us with rich readings the last three weeks; Nicodemus, the woman at the well and the man born blind. How Jesus meets each one of them, with grace, truth, and healing, and penetrating questions speaks to His role as the Good Shepherd...Read More

Congolese Company's Coming

We first met Pastor Atulu 30 years ago. He was on break from revising the Bible in Bangala (a regional language) and joined a group of us for a week to help establish the alphabet for Mayogo, his mother tongue...Read More

The Annunciation

It's easy to get lost in the Church calendar. We remember Christmas, of course, and Easter. In our Anglican tradition Ash Wednesday, Lent, Pentecost, and Advent all are given a fair bit of attention. Here at All Saints we make a point to remember All Saints' Day (which makes sense) and in the broader culture we mark St. Patrick's Day, but sadly not for the Holiest reasons....Read More
