  • The Upside Down

    September 5, 2018

    We live in a world that measures value by performance.   We spend a lot of time talking about achievements and outcomes and results.   This is tearing apart our world. The more we work towards this end alone, the more we just find ourselves tired, stressed and distanced from each other. This is not […]

  • Creative Creation

    August 27, 2018

    A few weekends ago, I was invited to the opening of a new building at Michigan State University known as the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams or “FRIB”. If you’re like me, you have absolutely no idea what any of those words mean and you now have a small bit of smoke emitting from your […]

  • Thank You Fair Haven

    August 15, 2018

    Dear Fair Haven, Greetings in the Mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I bring you greetings from your brothers and sisters from Uganda. I am Isaac Lubega; married to Alice and we have three children; Paul 5, Grace 3 and Pearl 7 months old. I minister with Bishop Stephen Kaziimba who has […]

  • Here I Am!

    August 14, 2018

    People will say, “I just want God to use me” – but the truth is, no loving father would ever say ‘my mission is to use my kids as much as I can!’ If you’ve ever used this phrase before – don’t worry, me too! I’ve just been challenged lately to think differently after a […]

  • Let’s Welcome Our New Neighbors!

    August 7, 2018

    A friend once told me that when a new neighbor moves in, she and her husband go over to their house to introduce themselves. They give their new neighbors their cell phone numbers in case that need anything. They also do something else that I find incredible: they give their new neighbors a key to […]

  • Heal the Heart – Mend the Soul – Restore the Joy

    July 31, 2018

    This is the motto of DC4K (Divorce Care for Kids) programs. Fair Haven offers this ministry as one of the Hope Harbor classes on Monday evenings. Kids, ages 5–12, whose parents are separated or divorced can find refuge and healing in this ministry. Statistics show that nearly 50% of American children are affected by divorce. […]

  • Love in Action

    July 24, 2018

    There’s this great passage about love in the book of 1 John where we read, “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in […]

  • Sing

    July 17, 2018

    If you know me, you’ve probably heard me say that Sunday is my favorite day of the week. There is nothing like when the church gathers together to worship God and I love that on Sunday mornings we get to come together as a family to sing. I recently read an article titled, “5 Reasons […]

  • Imagination

    July 10, 2018

    Imagination is a gift. Children imagine friends that are not there. Adults imagine futures full of what is yet unrealized. An imagination is that part of us that can form new ideas, get creative, and be resourceful to launch into new ventures. A year ago our children’s ministry team shut the door and stepped into […]

  • Rest

    July 2, 2018

    Rest is something I’ve been thinking a lot about recently. In part, because June and July have very busy schedules that have me feeling in need of rest, but largely because of something Bryan, our High School Director did a couple weeks ago. The week before Youth Week, the largest student ministry event of the […]
