This week, we examine Daniel’s prayer in chapter 9. What does it mean to seek God with your whole heart? Why should God respond? Have a listen, and consider how this chapter might influence your own prayer life.
Introduction: The Friday night Kiddush (Which means “sanctification”) is the traditional way to kick off the Sabbath. It is meant to occur just before sundown and is followed by dinner. It is a simple ceremony, with only a few key elements, but what is neat about it is there is a lot of room for […]
We are three weeks into a series on the topic of prayer, following the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6 as a guide. We believe prayer is essential, and yet for so many of us when it comes down to it, we often find ourselves floundering, distracted, or not sure what to say in prayer. Our […]

Devotional: Psalm 5

However, we’re recognizing that the last two Sundays have been an eye-opening crash-course in new territory for many people. We’d like to spend a little more time following up with the implications for our day-to-day lives. With that being said, […]
