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 […]

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 […]

Lent: Ways to Practice

by davidprill1

Lent is church season meant prepare our hearts and minds for Easter morning.  Easter is the single greatest day ever and we want to take some time to prepare ourselves mentally and emotionally for that great day. Daily devotional. A devotion is intentional time set aside each day.  The time is meant to refocus our […]

The ONLY Important Message

by davidprill1

It’s a message that I needed to hear just as much as I was speaking it.  I don’t necessarily want to start with myself but in this case my story just echoes the story of so many others.  And (probably) your story. I had just said it to someone else. They were talking about the […]

HE CAME!

by davidprill1

Grumpy.  Snippy remarks.  Things said that you wish you could take back.  Pretend like the day never happened and just move on. Does that sound like you during this busy holiday season? Sound like your latest family gathering?  Like the current relationship between you and the ones you are closest to? Well, there is HOPE […]
