  • He Is Risen!

    April 17, 2017

    This past Sunday, we gathered together to celebrate that Jesus Christ has risen. The tomb could not contain Him. Death itself could not contain Him. He is risen! I love Easter. I love it for everything it signifies. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:17, if Christ has not been raised, your faith if futile; you are […]

  • Vision, Hope, and Resurrection

    April 7, 2017

    Living without hope is a terrible thing. I have witnessed it in some of the poorest places on earth. I have read about it in books. Most of us have experienced it if only in a very small way. It’s that feeling we get when we think we will never get another chance or never […]

  • Open Up The Sky

    April 5, 2017

    Over the last couple of days, we have had some gloomy weather, along with some rainy days. And as I listened to the rain drops, I had this song stuck in my head. The song is called, Open Up The Sky, and the chorus of the song says: “Open up the sky, fall down like […]

  • Stop Being Anxious

    March 28, 2017

    “Stop being anxious.” “Don’t worry about it.” “Anxiety makes you stupid.” “Stop being afraid.” “Everything is going to be fine.” “Just quit thinking about it.” Have you ever had someone say phrases like that to you? It’s usually well intended, but not what you want to hear. Right? The more I see anxiety haunt young people, […]

  • Not Home Yet

    March 21, 2017

    On March 4, a team of seven from Fair Haven boarded a plane for Uganda, East Africa. Uganda was hot, dry, and dusty. The sun was so intense it would start to cook our skin within ten minutes of exposure. The smells were foreign. The language was foreign. The customs were foreign. We ate something […]

  • 21 Days of Fasting & Prayer

    January 26, 2017

    There’s this great story in John 3 where Jesus was having a conversation with Nicodemus, a Pharisee, one of the religious leaders of his time. The story begins with Nicodemus approaching Jesus… Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Desiring More Fruit

    January 19, 2017

    It’s been a tradition over many years for my parents to give us one of those ginormous, decorated popcorn cans on our way out from our family Christmas party. You know the kind; delicious caramel, messy cheddar and the plain that gets eaten last! Well, this year they switched it up on us big time. […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Divine Conversations

    August 11, 2016

    The culture in this world is ever changing. It’s becoming more and more challenging to get through even a week without hearing of some sort of tragedy, suffering or injustice. While dining at family restaurants such as Culver’s or Applebee’s, children are exposed to the world’s happenings on the TV screens, not to mention in their own […]

  • FH Staff Blog: Going to Dangerous Places

    August 5, 2016

    Most of us are risk averse. Safety matters to us. We don’t want our children playing in the middle of the street and we don’t want to move into the neighborhoods with the highest incidence of crime. We want our children to grow more independent but we are not real excited to give them the […]

  • Baptism Multi-Tasking

    July 28, 2016

    As St. Patrick was baptizing King Angus in Ireland in the middle of the 5th century, he inadvertently placed the pointed end of his staff on Angus’ foot. When Patrick then leaned on the staff, the king proceeded to bleed profusely, though suffering in silence. At the end of the ceremony, Patrick saw the king’s […]
