What’s the Incarnation all about?

Posted by on Dec 19, 2014 in Uncategorized

December can be a somewhat awkward time for Christians.  On one hand, it’s a time when churches tend to speak about Jesus a great deal, something we wish were a given throughout the year.  On the other hand, the Jesus that’s described can often resemble the values of culture instead of the description found in […]

Wonderful Reflections on the Value of Confessions

Posted by on Dec 15, 2014 in Uncategorized

A PCA pastor named Todd Pruitt, a contributor to The Mortification of Spin podcast, provides some wonderful reflections on the importance of having confessions in your church.  Here’s a snippet: A church is not simply an umbrella organization for various individual’s ministries and hobbies. A church is not a convention hall for loosely connected groups […]

Mark 2:23-3:6 – The Church’s Worship Leader

Posted by on Nov 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

As I was preparing this past Sunday’s sermon, one view that a few commentators expressed was that the statements of Jesus in Mark 2:27-28 could not have been original, since “they are disjointed” from the story of David. According to this view, Mark or a later scribe must not have realized that the sayings were […]

Mark 1:14-45 – Fishers of Men

Posted by on Nov 14, 2014 in Uncategorized

One unfortunate consequence of preaching through the Bible text-by-text is that Christians can begin to treat a book like Mark’s Gospel as a collection of disparate stories instead of a single, unified story with different scenes. This consequence is surely unintended, and it shouldn’t keep churches from preaching through books. Rather, we need to be aware […]

#KentBrantly is trending.  In case you’re unfamiliar with the recent controversy (Where have you been for the last 24 hours?!), let me provide some context.  He is the physician, serving Samaritan’s Purse, that contracted Ebola.  His transfer from Africa to the States was widely-publicized a little while ago.  Through the use of some experimental drugs, […]

Can I pray to Jesus or the Holy Spirit?

Posted by on Aug 22, 2014 in Uncategorized

Here at WRC, we’re beginning a series in the Lord’s Prayer. Each week in our “Catechism Service” (sort of like a Sunday School class), we will consider a different part of it. Not only did Jesus command us to pray this prayer (“When you pray, say, ‘Father…’” Luke 11:2), He also commanded us to use […]

Macchiatos and Reformed Identity

Posted by on Jul 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

If you ever want to make a barista squirm, walk into an independently-run café and order a “Macchiato”. You may notice some concern on the barista’s face as you’re asked whether you’re looking for a true Macchiato or a Caramel Macchiato. If you’re in an especially cruel mood, you could reply, “I asked for a […]
