Love Well
by Bill Williamson on June 16th, 2020
James says that if we can LOVE our neighbor, we are doing WELL. But, what does that look like? Our Mission at Grace of Christ is “Making Disciples Who Love Well With Drops of Grace. Drops of Grace are those things we do in order to show and share and reflect the love of Christ...  Read More

Quick To Be Slow
by Bill Williamson on June 10th, 2020
We were taught as children: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” So not true. Words have hurt me. Even more so, I learned how I could hurt somebody else with my words. Later in life I also learned spoken words cannot be taken back - it’s like trying to put toothpaste back into the tube. However, damaging words are not merely spoken or written down these days. They can be put out on the internet for everyone in the world to see.  Read More

It was not intended to be another law to follow. I believe the Sabbath is to be a way to help us develop a routine, or a sacred rhythm in which we continually make room and time to be in the presence of God. Part of the problem for me is that my daily, weekly, and even monthly routines has been thrown out the window. I was hoping to develop a “new routine”. That’s not happening. Each day is different. Each week is different.  Read More

A Thirsty Soul
by Bill Williamson on May 13th, 2020
It’s been said, “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.” Or, perhaps, “You don’t appreciate what you have until it’s gone.” It’s the idea that we often take for granted the things we have until we need them and can’t have them (i.e. toilet paper).   Read More
