He Is Still Alive!
by Bill Williamson on April 13th, 2020
When I looked at my calendar this past Monday, I noticed that it said: “Easter Monday”. I guess I hadn’t really paid attention before, or was unaware of the fact that there was such a thing. As I investigated it, I discovered that many Christians, particularly in Canada and Australia, celebrate Easter Monday as a day of rest. (After all that goes into putting together our Easter service last week, and every other service during this time, I’m sure my staff would like to celebrate Easter Monday every Monday)  Read More
Guard Your Heart

“Above all else, guard your heart, from everything you do flows from it.”Proverbs 4.23 How is your heart?

Eye of the Storm
by Bill Williamson on March 18th, 2020
We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.   (Hebrews 6.19-20) As Pastor at Grace of Christ, I find myself at a loss for words.  Shocking, I know.  So, perhaps let me borrow from a familiar song.  We just l...  Read More
