Drawing a Crowd

Drawing a Crowd

I am officially on holiday!! I’m hoping to post some photos here over the next week as we will be in some scenic places. Today I wanted to repost something put up here a few years ago as I think it ties in well with the series we just completed. :: originally...

Ithaca

I was listening to a podcast by Scot McKnight yesterday about the Bible. I got a lot out of it, and I’ll share the link below. Part of the conversation reminded me of something I haven’t thought of in years, but was a key moment in the life of our church in Ithaca....

Waxing Nostalgic…Things I Love About Ithaca

This July 4th weekend will mark the 18 year anniversary of when Liz & I moved to Ithaca from Albany. While I know Liz was hoping we’d settle down in the area and raise our family, I was thinking 5 years and we’d be on to our next adventure. I mean...
