    God’s Freedom

    Romans 9:6-18

The very examples Paul chooses seem to uphold that inconsistency. He chooses Isaac over Ishmael. He chooses Jacob over Esau. He loves […]

    From Bethlehem to Boston to Oak Park

    Not many people know the connection between our church and the famous Christmas carol "O Little Town of Bethlehem." The connection goes from the carol to its author to the church he built to the Presbyterians of Oak Park to Calvary Memorial Church. In 1864 a pastor named Phillips Brooks visited the Holy Land at Christmastim…

    Thanksgiving 1999

    1 Thessalonians 5:18 admonishes us to "give thanks in all circumstances." Sometimes that is easy to do, sometimes not so easy. In the last few days I have found comfort in two places: great music and good theology. By "great music" I am not referring to a style or to a particular period but rather to music that contains a s…

    Ebook: In His Steps

    No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

    “Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

    “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
