Love Response

by davidprill1

My boys are funny and amazing.  It’s amazing how different they are.  And it’s amazing how funny some of their responses can be. For example: I might say (as I frequently do) “I love you” to each one and each one typically responds differently than the others. One typically responds like this: “I love you […]

A Prayer

by davidprill1

It’s really captivated my attention for the last two months.  I keep trying to think deeply about other things, keep wanting to teach on something else, keep trying to find new material but I can’t.  This prayer has captured my heart and my mind and I keep coming back to it.  The prayer is a […]

Communication Change

by davidprill1

Resurrection has three primary ways of mass communications. Bulletin ENews Eblast As of October 1st, we will be changing the way that we send our eblast (and our prayer) communications. We will be using our church management software to send these communications. Our current list is quite long and we think it is a bit […]

Reformation Celebration!

by davidprill1

When the Reformation began in 1517, the Church and culture were soon to change forever. But centuries haven’t changed one thing: it’s still all about Jesus! 500 years ago on October 31st, Martin Luther posted 95 thesis on a church door (bulletin board).  That action sparked controversy, discussion and eventually what we know as “the reformation.” Resurrection […]

Simplify

by davidprill1

Our lives are often very complex. This sermon series is based off a book by Bill Hybels by the same title. It will consider practical areas of our life (calendar, finances, relationship, anxiety, and forgiveness) and how these areas might be simplified when brought under the guidance and grace of Jesus. There will be lots […]

More and More

by davidprill1

More and more. If we are really honest it’s what we really desire. Something deep within us craves more and more. More money. More time. More pizza. More quiet. More people in our church. More leisure. More family. More summer. I’d imagine that at least one or two of those apply to you. You can […]

Cart and Horse.

by davidprill1

The cart before the horse. You’ve heard the expression before.  Usually with a “Don’t”.  “Don’t” put the cart before the horse.  I was curious what I’d find if I went to google images.  I found some doozies.  Check these out! Aren’t those great!? They make me laugh.  So silly.  And yet – so true. Here’s […]

The Main Thing

by davidprill1

It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t the main thing.  The most important thing.  My almost seven year old was coloring.  Drawing pictures at the table.  I had asked him at least twice if not three times to brush his teeth.  It was 7:35am and we needed to get moving so we could pray, leave the […]

No longer a slave to fear.

by davidprill1

No longer a slave to fear. It’s the lyric to a favorite song of mine. It feels unattainable. Unrealistic. Crazy even. I’ve got plenty to fear. Loneliness. Add two very important members to our staff – in two months! Leading a few hundred people through Holy Week – in a clear and compelling way. Engaging […]
